If you watch Gold Rush on the Discovery Channel, you're probably familiar with Todd Hoffman’s 18-year-old son Hunter Hoffman. He just recently started working for the family business, and fans have been eager to learn more about him. In particular, viewers have questions about his girlfriend, blonde beauty Bri Ramseth (sorry, ladies, he is taken).
From the looks of her Instagram, the couple has been dating since 2015, and even went to prom together! The pair seem super happy and Bri has even posted pics of herself in mining gear, crediting her boyfriend for the new look, of course. “Hunter is teaching me how to be as cool as him,” she wrote in a caption. “Photo Creds obviously go out to the guy himself.”
Hunter recently opened up to Monsters and Critics about working with his family in the mining business. “This is an insane summer for me,” he said. “This is one of our longest seasons we’ve ever mined. And we really just kind of ground it out, and it gets really, really tough at some points. Especially for me. Just being more in the spotlight, given more responsibility, trying to run my own crew.”
Hunter is a third-generation miner, following in the footsteps of his father Todd and his grandfather Jack. He also talked about how close he is to the males in his life. “I frickin’ love my grandpa, and we started this whole thing on his dream of gold mining. So we wouldn’t really be here without him,” he said. “I’m just really grateful for him, having him and my dad in my life. I’ve learned so much from my grandpa, and he is truly a man of God. How does he stay in character in the way he treats people and the work ethic? I don’t know, he’s an amazing example for me."
