Rick faces the wrath of Parker Schnabel on Gold Rush tonight, and risks being cut from the crew

On tonight’s Gold Rush, it is “do or die” time for Rick Ness — as he faces Parker Schnabel’s wrath and risks being cut from the crew.

In our exclusive clip, Parker is evidently not happy after Rick risked his job by abandoning Parker’s mining plan in a bid to keep Big Red in the game.

A meeting is convened, with Parker telling Rick: “I am not real enthused about how it all went down there, but, you know, you do what you have to to find gold. Right? Hopefully, it worked, Rick, that’s all I got to say.”

Big Red needs to deliver at least 100 ounces of gold, or Ness’s head will roll. With Parker set to weigh Big Red’s take, everyone is holding their breath…

Back in December Rick, an infrequent Twitter user, posted a cryptic photo of him holding an exotic insect and teasing a “BAD ASS tv series” had wrapped.

He said: “6 weeks survived in the Amazon Jungle. One BAD ASS 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.”

Wonder if any of the Gold Rush guys were with him and if it was for Discovery?

What do you think will happen to Rick on Gold Rush tonight? Meet us over at the forums to discuss his fate and Parker’s season so far, and watch our exclusive clip from tonight’s episode below!

Gold Rush airs Fridays at 9/8c on Discovery.
