Character Bio

Todd Hoffman photo
AGE: 41
BACKGROUND: Aviation business

Todd Hoffman came up with his plan to mine for gold in Alaska after watching the steady decline of his aviation business in Oregon. While the economy stalled, he watched the price of gold rise and rise. Inspired by his father Jack's own gold mining adventures back in the 1980s, Todd sourced a viable gold claim, and then assembled a team of his unemployed buddies and the equipment they would need to start a full-scale mining operation. Todd has always been one for thinking big, and it's his hope to rekindle the American Dream and the frontier spirit on which this country was built. Fiercely independent, Todd is proud of the fact that he has never had a boss in his life, but admits that this is the most ambitious undertaking of his life. He hopes that if the mine is a success this team will be able to start a whole new community in Alaska, living entirely off the grid - provided of course that they strike gold. Todd values family above everything else and his young sons Hunter and Hudson will be following their father every step of the way.
