Who is Fred Lewis?

Fred Lewis is a cast member on Discovery’s Gold Rush. He’s a much more recent addition to the cast than the other people on the show as he joined during season 11 in 2020.

His time on the show so far has had its ups and downs, he had to end the season early and send his team home previously. However, season 12 may see Fred strike lucky.

Fred was previously a Special Forces medic and travelled the world with his job before opting for a career in gold mining.

Fred Lewis’ age explored

While some of the Gold Rush cast members are quite young when considering the level of responsibility they have, such as 27-year-old Parker Schnabel, others are a fair bit older.

Parker’s age and career level comes down to the fact that he comes from a gold mining family and so, he’s been learning the ropes from a very young age. Similarly, the younger members of the Beets family have had the same experience.

Fred, however, has taken to gold mining later in life. The Gold Rush star is 42 years old.
