Hi.Goldone I watch very little reality crap.From what I can gather Tony beets may have got a start and may even have made some mining before he got a Discovery channel.Discovery is his gold mine.From the little I have watched.I have never seen Tony get his hands dirty.He is the most vulgarman and treats his family like dog shit.Still never seen Tony use a shovel or a pan.Soapy Smith comes to mind every time I see that has been hippy.Luck Mcbain.
You said you watch very little reality crap but did you take the time to open that link and read the story? As far as getting his hands dirty, I guess you missed seeing him with sledge hammers, welders, and operating some of the heavy equipment in a number of the episodes but with that said, you don't build up and manage a company just to stick around and do all the labor work for the television series. I think he's at the stage where he's done his time in the field and it's now time to manage the operation.
How can you possibly tell from the show that he's vulgar, as they constantly leave out sections of the subtitles for some reason and an annoying piece of heavy equipment keeps beeping while they're trying to record him while he's talking?
