Tony Beets, a Canadian miner and reality television celebrity whose net worth exceeds $15 million, is from the Netherlands. “Gold Rush” star Beets is from Wijdenes in the Netherlands and is most known for his part in the Discovery Channel series. By virtue of its large-scale characters and intense daily drama in a genuine gold mine, it has become one of the network’s most popular programmes.
Because to Beets’ penchant for bad language, his remarks on the show are frequently bleeped out, giving him the title “Tony Peep” in his home New York. On the official “Gold Rush” website, the producers label Tony a “maverick mining legend” and a “larger-than-life Dutchman.”
Professional Tony left his family’s farm in Canada to pursue a more lucrative job path, earning money by milking cows for a lengthy period of time in the process. After working in the construction sector for three years, Beets began mining in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, in 1984. His mine, the Tamarack, is now known to employ young people from the neighbourhood. For those that can, the Beets family grows by one member despite the fact that many others are unable to.
While working as an advisor to “Gold Rush” cast member Todd Hoffman on drilling test holes, Tony made his debut. “Gold Rush: White Water” (2018), “Gold Rush: Pay Dirt” (2016), “Gold Rush: The Dirt” (2013), “Gold Rush: South America” (2013), and “Gold Fever” (2013) are a few other episodes in which Beets has appeared (2013). As of this writing, beets have appeared in more than 160 episodes of “Gold Rush.” Near season five, he spent $1 million on the Viking Dredge, a dredge in Clear Creek.
Personal Life of Tony Beets:
Tony and Minnie formed a close friendship as children. They were neighbours as children in Burgwerd, Friesland, and began dating in 1978.

For the family company, Minnie not only works, but she also handles their paperwork and bookkeeping. According to reports from Tony and Minnie’s vacation home in Arizona, Beets has a Mercedes convertible worth an estimated $145,000. An employee of Tony’s was filmed in 2015 setting fire to the dredging pond using gasoline on the surface. Under the Yukon Waters Act, he was fined $1,725 for what was called a “Viking baptism” and another employee who poured gasoline was fined $1,725 as well.
