Fred Lewis is a real-life Viking. Even though Fred doesn’t possess the fighting prowess of the ancient warriors, he does look the part. Handy in any medical situation, Fred is one of the best-trained medics in the world. A military man, Fred often recalls his time in the military and how they taught him everything from delivering babies to pulling teeth to even delivering cows. A man for stressful situations, Fred has traveled over the world and has worked in combat zones. This set him up nicely as the next cast member of the reality TV series, Gold Rush. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Fred Views.
Fred Lewis was born in 1977 in Dresden Mills, Maine. Raised in a small logging community in Maine, Fred and his brother Mike Lewis would spend early years in the family farm growing livestock and garden. Fred attended Wiscasset High School not far from his hometown. After high school, he joined the US Army Special Forces as a Medical Sergeant. In his stint at the army, he traveled around the world working in several high-stress situations. Fred also learned to become a linguist specializing in four languages English, German, Norwegian, and Korean.
A new lease at life:
Used to working in the heat of things, Fred had lost his edge after leaving the army. In 2008, he was shot in the helmet by a sniper. In the aftermath, he suffered from multiple seizures and short term memory loss. Fred was discharged in 2009 and turned to medications for several years.
He had a hard time connecting with the people. To fill the gap in real-world his brother Mike encouraged to engage in farming. Fred-Curtis majored in Agriculture with an emphasis in Livestock Production at Eastern Kentucky University. He ran multiple farms alongside his brother in North Caroline and Kentucky. He also did teaching in high school as a biology teacher.
Fred is finding his edge and is looking forward to his brand new adventure. Fred is one of the newest appearances in the reality TV series, Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail. He joined the series on the 5th of April 2019 and made his debut in the second episode of the third season. The episode entitled Dangerous Depths saw Fred listed as a medic for Parker’s team. As the season progressed, Fred’s ability to handle tough situations proved to be a plus point for all.
Getting in on the action
When asked about his remarks on the previous seasons of Gold Rush, Fred commented that he couldn’t believe Parker and Sam made it out alive. In an interview, Fred commented,
“I feel like, as a viewer of last season, watching it from home, I was shocked at how they made it out alive. I think, Parker and Sam, I would kind of compare to daycare? They seem to kind of go and do things without thinking about them and kind of hop around and do whatever they want and that’s kind of why they get into a lot of trouble. I’m just trying to be there being the neg mom and making sure they don’t do dumb things that they don’t think are dumb.”
Personal Relationships: Fred Lewis Married to Khara Lewis
Fred Lewis is a married man and has been for quite a while. He married Khara Lewis way back on May 27, 2006, just two months after dating each other. They tied the knot in Los, Angles which was meant for Khara’s sister wedding who called off at the last minute.
Fred and Khara met in the Army language school where Fred was learning German and she was for Tagalog. Like Fred, Khara comes from a military family. And growing up as a military brat rubbed off. She served in the Army in psychological operations for two years.
