'Bering Sea Gold Kelly's Fireworks Extravaganza': Fourth of July for the Kellys involves barbeque and games
After all the intensity 'Bering Sea Gold' brings, today's special was the time to stop, smell the roses (or the meat), some cordite from the fireworks and have a good time with the Kellys. Kris Kelly, father, Brad, and brother, Andy take the viewers on a trip to their farm and have some Fourth of July fun. There's the typical Kelly fights, some heartburn providing lip-smacking burgers, fireworks and some games to help unwind what has been a rather mixed season for the family.
The Kellys have had quite the ride. Their scrimmage with the Eroica's skipper, Emily Riedel was the start. They had a bad day out at sea with Bree Savage, a diver who was a disappointment. Couple this with a storm that saw them beat a hasty retreat, nothing much really went right for the trio. However, they're close to achieving their gold quota this summer. Coming back to their R and R time, the episode starts with Andy's special Reaper burgers— Two patties, dollops of ketchup, mayo, mustard, pickles held together by the buns.
Enough to slam the cholesterol levels up to the stratosphere? That's just the start as they wrestle, an event that ends with Kelly dislocating his knee, the water balloon challenge is another fun activity where they lock and load water balloons and the aim is to hit the target. The only condition, the target must be a sitting duck. Mike Rowe, in his narration, makes it doubly clear— "Do not try this at home."
They top it off with some epic fireworks display and while the farm is beautifully lit up, Kris talks about being part of the family. It's cheesy really, but sometimes it's okay. He talks about being part of a rather "strange" family who's known for their constant squabbling. "But that's love," he says. "I know that Andy and my dad have my back no matter what," he says confidently and that is something that comes across as true. With summer mining season coming to an end, the Kellys will be keen to make a mark.
Perhaps, this much-needed rest day will be the start of something great for this weird, but lovable family.
'Bering Sea Gold' airs 8 pm ET on Discovery.
