This season, Todd is throwing down the gauntlet to Parker in the race to 5000 ounces (a mega $5m haul). Whoever misses out will pay the other $100,000 (100ozs). Will this be the season Todd finally finds the rich seam of gold he’s been so desperately chasing? Or will young Parker once again school the old dreamer?
Or, will Klondike veteran Tony Beets teach them both a lesson with his fleet of mega dredges?
