‘Bering Sea Gold’: Emily Riedel on Zeke Tenhoff, the new dredge and life on the edge
To earn money to continue studying opera in Vienna, Austria, 24-year-old mezzo-soprano Emily Riedel returned to her home state of Alaska to follow in her eccentric father’s footsteps and take to the Bering Sea as a deckhand on a dredge seeking gold on the ocean floor.
Little did she know that she would wind up as one of the personalities on Discovery Channel’s Friday hit “Bering Sea Gold” — returning with a preview episode on Dec. 28, and its second season on Jan. 4 — and that her on-again, off-again relationship with childhood friend and boss, Capt. Zeke Tenhoff, would fascinate the viewing public.
