EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek : Christo Doyle Returning As Host Of THE DIRT

Big news for fans of Discovery’s Gold Rush. Christo Doyle is returning as host of The Dirt, premiering Friday at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Viewers will recognize Doyle from his time as host for three seasons of the popular Gold Rush pre-show. And there is no one possibly better suited for the job. Doyle has a way of connecting with the miners and getting the inside scoop like no one else. Perhaps it’s from his time once serving as executive producer for the first six seasons of Gold Rush, which still remains the network’s highest-rated program after 9 seasons on air beating everything in its path on Friday nights.

The Dirt will give the inside scoop on everything that went down this year. Fans will be given the opportunity to interact with the miners and get access to behind-the-scenes, cutting room floor material that never makes it into the show. Also, the show will give viewers an opportunity to check out the all-new competition series “Master of Arms,” which premieres after Gold Rush this Friday at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery. The miners will even put to the test when the expert judges from “Master of Arms” stops by the set.

There is no doubt Doyle will have a lot to discuss this season – as Gold Rush returned this season with new miners, new rivalries and brand-new claims. We know we’re excited to see him back and get the real scoop on the new season and all the behind-the-scenes drama. We know that we’re excited to see his big return!

Be sure to check it out this Friday, November 2 at 8 PM ET/PT, right before an all-new episode of Gold Rush at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery.
