What is Kris Kelly's net worth? 'Bering Sea Gold' miner to captain his largest vessel in Season 13
For captain Kris Kelly, maintaining a family business has been far from easy but with his eyes set on a new mining ground, Kris is all set to lead the largest vessel he's ever captained in hope of striking gold
Mining for gold has the potential to make miners extremely rich, but as with everything, it comes at a steep price. And if anyone can vouch for that, it would Kris Kelly.
The captain of the Reaper has dealt with his fair share of trying times on 'Bearing Sea Gold', as fans have seen him deal with it all -- from his fights with his father to shoddy equipment, Kris has braved nearly every storm in the book.
Who are the Kelly family?
The world was first introduced to the Kellys when Brad Kelly, the patriarch made his way onto the show during season 2, back in 2012. Fans were soon introduced to his two sons, Andrew, known as Andy, and Kris and also came to know of Brad's wife and the boys' mother, Wendy.
Wendy and Brad were not on amicable terms and seemed to have a feud that lasted well over 30 years. Andy and Kris soon found themselves taking over the Reaper, the family dredge, with Kris taking on the role of the captain.
Their father had seen considerable success as a miner and the boys were hoping to ride that lucky wave to the bank. His relationship with his father took a toll for the worse when Brad stole gold from his sons to help with the money issues he was facing after having a child with his baby mama, Courtney.
As reported by Distractify, he took nearly $13,000 worth of gold from the pair and justified his actions by saying that he set up Andy and Kris with their mining careers. More drama ensued when in season 9, he tried to reunite his family by bringing Wendy to Nome.
This plan backfired badly, seeing that Brad and Wendy were at each other's throats. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned that entire season -- from shoddy machinery to emotional meltdowns, Kris found it harder than ever to make things work in his favor.
This season could possibly change all of that. With his eyes set on a new mining ground, Kris is all set to lead the largest vessel he's ever captained in hope of striking gold. Maybe this season, Kris's luck steers itself in the right direction.
What is Kris Kelly's net worth?
As reported by TV Show Casts, Kris's current net worth stands at $200,000, with his primary source of income being his mining work and starring on the show. Interestingly enough, his father, Brad Kelly, has a net worth of $2.2 million.
Is Kris in a relationship?
It's no secret that Kris is very private when it comes to his personal life. While his family drama has unfolded on the show, Kelly has ensured that his private life outside the silver screen stays private.
He doesn't seem to have any social media, save for an Instagram profile under the handle @reaperdredging, however, it looks like he also has another handle @bearingseagoldthe. Neither gives out any information about Kelly's love life though, so not much is known about the same.
