Scott Meisterheim is a classic case of a TV star gone bad. Once a reality TV star, Scott is now a wanted man in Kalamazoo. Scott is charged with one count each of failing to pay child support and desertion/abandonment/non-support in a warrant. Scott rose to fame following his appearance in the reality TV series, Bering Sea Gold. However, Scott played the role of the villain in the series and was displayed clear displeasure as to how he was portrayed in the series. He was often involved in confrontations with the cast as well as the members of the production crew. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Scott Miesterheim.
Scott Meisterheim was born on the 8th of July 1967 in Alaska, USA. Born and raised in Alaska, Scott comes from humble beginnings. Little is known about Scott and his early life. He has not disclosed details about his parents and prefers to keep information about his personal life a secret. Way before Scott decided to venture into the sea, he worked as a builder in Alaska. He later moved to the oil industry before heading towards the Bering Sea in search of gold.
Bering Sea Gold:
Scott Meisterheim was the first name on the list when plans for the reality TV series Bering Sea Gold was drawn. One of the most talented miners in business, Scott was assigned to the Wild Ranger. He captained the ship in the first season but moved to Anchor Management during the second season. He captained the ship with the help of his best friend Todd Allen. However, things took a bad turn for Scott and Todd when Todd left the show mid-way through the season. Todd cited Scott’s drinking problem as a reason for leaving the show. As a result, Scott was checked into rehab and he spent the remaining of the season in rehab.
A bad turn:
Ever since Todd left the series during the second season, he has been on bad terms with the producers. Even while working on the series, Todd was constantly at the throat of his fellow cast members and would often fight with the crewmen. One of the most notable incidents of Scott’s temper was when he got in a fight with a fellow captain, Vern Adkison. As a result, Scott was viewed as a nuance by the cast and crew. His drinking habit added further problems and the series had no choice but to let Scott go.
Problems with the law:
Scott Meisterheim is a wanted man who was charged with one count each of failing to pay child support and desertion/ abandonment/ non-support in a warrant. The charges originated from child support Meisterheim owes his ex-wife for the care of their 17-year-old daughter. The warrant was issued by the court after Scott failed to pay the promised amount even after being in direct contact with the police. An official statement on the case read,
“(He) said he would be sending two large payments by the end of the month of September, but we haven’t heard from him since.”
But Scott seems to have learned his lesson. He is on-time with the child support and is now looking to open up a shop in Alaska.
