Tony Beets is best known as a cast member who goes hunting for expensive gold, but he also focuses on his kids and grandchildren.
Often on the search for some expensive gold, Tony has returned to the series with a goal to mine 9,000 ounces – which is worth $16 million today.
When he isn’t busy in the Indian Wells and Paradise Hill mine, fans are aware that Tony often spends his down time with family.
This leaves fans wondering who his grandchildren and kids are, and how many of them he may stand as a role model to.
