Gold Rush fans that got a kick out of watching Rick Ness huff and puff in Parker's Trail may want to start getting ready for a new adventure into the Amazon. Realty star, and Parker Schnabel's foreman Rick Ness just returned from six weeks of filming a new Discovery show in the Amazon.
On December 14, Ness posted on Twitter a photo of himself holding an enormous bug. Held between his index finger and thumb, the freakishly large critter resembles a cockroach. Is this lunch, or is Rick just showing off?
Below the photo, the Gold Rush star revealed what he had been up and where he had been the past six weeks.
"6 weeks survived in the Amazon Jungle. One BAD A** tv series wrapped. It is amazing the things you can do when you get out of your comfort zone and just flat out go for it. Homeward bound."
No Gold Rush fan will ever forget Todd Hoffman and his crew's ill attempted foray into gold mining in Guyana, South America. Apparently, Discovery had such fond memories of this adventure that they returned to South America, but this time to the Amazon.
While it does not appear that Ness will be mining gold, the photo of the huge bug and the hint that he was participating in an adventure outside of his "comfort zone" that promises some squirmy perils.
Last year, Rick Ness, who is in charge of one of Parker Schnabel's claims in the Yukon, filmed Gold Rush: Parker's Trail, along with Schnabel, cameraman James Levelle and wilderness guide Karla Ann Charlton.
