11 contestants learn the skills of gold prospecting in order to find real gold! Loaded with heavy camping gear they arrive at a remote Alaskan creek and set up camp. The pressure is on as they work long hours that require back-breaking stamina and meticulous attention to detail - all in freezing wild Alaskan rapids. The boss decides who hasn’t worked hard enough, and the four lowest performing workers must go back into the creek to compete against one another in a race for gold. The person with the least amount of gold goes home.
