Gold Rush’s Dave Turin exited program in 2017 after a rumored fistfight with Trey Poulson. He had appeared on the program for six seasons. He announced it a week after the fistfight happened-and thanked fans for their support. Dave thanked fans for being supportive of him and the program, but acknowledged that it is time to try something else. It is now known what the disagreement with Poulson was in regards to, and it is not something Dave seems to want to dwell on. The post continued to say that no amount of money is worth working with someone so disrespectful. One commenter said maybe Dave should consider a new career, to which Dave responded that anything is always possible, and he would look into a couple of different things. He had been a consultant at one point, so he says that is what people may see him in next. It could be something completely different. Even after leaving in season seven, Dave returned in season eight, but not as a full time cast member. He debuted his new truck, a customized Ford F550, in a Las Vegas truck show.
