What happened to Gene Cheeseman?
The work Gene put on is a thing of admiration he is the man who sees the bigger picture than to achieve success for a short while. Gene appeared in few episodes of Gold Rush with Tony Beets and his crew in 2017. However, he was absent for the most of the seventh season. Again in 2018, Gene has not appeared in Gold Rush. There is no official explanation about Gene not being in the show one thing that we can tell; he is content with his family and two kids. Those concerned about his well being, Gene is in good shape as a normal healthy person.
He had some impressive Gold mining memory with Parker Schnabel who regarded him an MVP employee. Gene worked with Parker as a foreman from 2013 to 2016. He was the heart of everything from moving dirt, fixing things, to even raising the productivity of people around him. After working for years, he fell out with Parker and left the crew.
