Bering Sea Gold:

Scott Meisterheim was the first name on the list when plans for the reality TV series Bering Sea Gold were 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 Anchor Management 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 had 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, Veron 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.

Brushing with the law:

Following the divorce from his wife in 2006, Scott was ordered to pay $502.89 monthly in child support. He was yet to pay a sum of $10,000 by July 2011. However, once he joined the reality TV show “Bering Sea Gold,” the star was on time to pay child support. In 2013 his ex-wife lost her job and was making minimum wages. Meanwhile, Scott had a good source of revenue, as a result, the court agreed to increase child support to $879.53. However, after Scott was let go from the show things got out of hand. Scott’s last appearance came in Season 3 Episode 11 ” The Final Showdown” which aired on February 21, 2014.

In 2015, Scott Meisterheim was charged with one count each of failing to pay child support and desertion/ abandonment/ non-support. The charges originated from child support of $21,000, which Meisterheim owed 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 made the payments and the case was dismissed in 2018.
