Chris Doumitt is a guy who gets things done. Born and raised on a farm, the term working hours don’t apply to Chris. He is the kind of guy who is ready to pull an all-nighter on the job. And while Chris’s skills are nothing to sneer at, his work ethic is what brought him such acclaimed success. A part of the reality series Gold Rush, Chris joined the cast as part of the Hoffman Crew. He stayed with Hoffman throughout seasons 2 and 3. In season 4, Chris switched over to Parker’s crew and has been with them ever since. His legendary work ethic is slowly rubbing off on his crewmates, and everyone is grateful for it.
Chris Doumitt was born in the city of Portland, Oregan. Born into a farming family, Chris spent much of his early days on the farm. He would often help his father with machinery, which allowed Chris to pick up some basic skills for mining as well. During his early years, Chris also wanted to try his hands in carpeting. Besides, Chris is also a firearms expert and used to teach firearm safety to the Sandy Police Department.
For the longest time, Chris employed his skills as a master carpenter and marksmen. Little is known about Chris’s life before the reality TV series, Gold Rush. In the first seasons of the show, Chris was contracted to build a cabin for his friend Greg Remsburg and his family. Chris started working in 2010 and took ten days to finish the cabin. Impressed by Chris’s skills, Hoffman invited Chris to be a part of his crew. This was his first introduction in the world of reality TV. Chris stayed with the Hoffman crew for three seasons before making the switch to Parker’s crew.
In the fourth season of the series, Chris parted ways with the Hoffmans and began working for Parker Schnabel at Scribner Creek Claim. And while Chris hadn’t thought of joining Parker’s crew for the long term, he is now an invaluable asset to the team. He is not only good at what he does but is also good at inspiring others to do their job. As a result, Parker’s crew have been able to meet their seasonal goals and have been able to establish their dominance on the scene.
Why did he leave Hoffman’s crew?
Although he did leave Hoffman crew there is no official statement regarding his departure. Funnily during the same time frame, at the end of the third season of the show, Chris had all his stuff stolen. His truck was stolen in 2016 which was equipped with his passports, cards, credit cards, and credentials. Chris was stranded and couldn’t make the journey back home. While he did recover his passport, his wife Sharon bought him a new truck and drove up with Justin to deliver it.
Chris is currently enjoying a happy married life with Sharon Doumitt. The pair have been together for more than 40 years and have a son, Justin. Sharon has always been supportive of Chris and his career. In the seventh season of the show, Sharon suffered from a bout of two forms of cancer. She underwent treatment from February through July of 2017 and has currently recovered from her surgery. A professional vlogger, Sharon took a break from vlogging after her surgery but is back at it.
A carpenter, a gold miner, a tv actor, and a businessman Chris is not the one to lay all the eggs on one basket. His transition from a carpenter to a gold miner in 2010 came a bit as a surprise but it is well justified now. He earns about $25000 per episode from appearing in the TV show Gold Rush. He also bags in money as the crew member of Parker Schnabel. He also has a “Doumitt” cigar brand and can be seen promoting in the TV show with a cigar in between his teeth in Gold Rush. As of 2020, Chris has a net worth estimated to be around $600,000.
Nationality, Ethnicity, Relationship status
Chris is American by nationality and if ethnicity is concerned he is of Arab descent. Since he is married to long-time wife Sharon, it is safe to put him off the market for the ladies who have their eyes on him for quite some time.
