The show follows the lives of gold dredgers like Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ Tenhoff, popular as Zeke Tenhoff as they search for gold in both the shallow and deep Alaskan waters of Bering Sea. Zeke, short for Ezekiel, has been a part of the cast since its pilot episode, Paydirt.

Zeke Tenhoff Dating Life with Ex-Girlfriend Emily Riedel and their Split. What Happened?
Zeke and co-star Emily Riedel had an on and off intense love affair that gave a dramatic spin to Bering Sea Gold’s earlier days. That is right Emily Reidel used to be his girlfriend. However, their relationship never seemed to be a peaceful one owing to the many disagreements, heated exchanges, and drama and so he and his then-girlfriend had to call it off.
Although their relationship met an ugly end, they had to patch up their differences or at least ignore them when an urgent need for them to work together soon arose. The two continued to work together as gold dredging partners until 2017.
Bering Sea Gold Zeke Tenhoff is dating Sarah Dunn.
Zeke was faced with a crushing blow in 2012 when his best friend John Bunce committed suicide with a .44 Magnum. Following the incident, Zeke became depressed and turned to substance abuse to cope with the loss. It was during this low period in his life he winded up in New Orleans.
While there, Zeke Tenhoff met his new girlfriend Sarah Dunn and in his words, not ours, fell in love with her right away. So Zeek refused to leave New Orleans without her. Sarah agreed to visit Nome for a few weeks but ended up loving it so much she stayed. She owns the Au Gratin food truck that was initially a school bus bought by Zeek from Emily’s dad, Steve Riedel. So you can see why and how Sarah went on to become his girlfriend.
Both Zeke and Sarah Dunn didn’t feature in the recently released season 10 pilot episode. They have also not made any public appearances of late neither updated their social media accounts for a while. For these reasons, it is hard to gauge if they are still together or not.
