Emily Riedel stars in Bering Sea Gold, a reality TV show on Discovery Channel that documents the gold mining adventures of various crews on their dredgers in either shallow waters, seas, or oceans. She started off as a deckhand and diver in season 1 and 2 and moved up the ladder to include captain in her resume in season three.
