Danger rises for George, Scott on Jungle Gold tonight with desperate deal

Mechele R. Dillard's picture

Tonight's season finale of Jungle Gold finds Scott and George in more danger than usual, deep in the Ghana bush.

Gold mining continues on Discovery Channel’s Jungle Gold, although the so-called miners, Scott Lomu and George Wright VI, are not getting very good—well, any, really—results.

This week on Jungle Gold, George and Scott find themselves without a site to dig, and must step it up in order to have a chance to change their finances. According to the Discovery Channel, on tonight’s “Armed Robbery” season finale episode:

Scott and George have been kicked off their gold mine in Ghana and need to buy a new claim to keep their mining dreams alive. But raising the cash involves a desperate and dangerous gold deal with life threatening consequences deep in the bush.

Turning Mining Failures into Broadcast Millions

Scott and George are having even less success than their counterparts in Alaska and the Klondike, but Jungle Gold continues to be a ratings winner for the Discovery Channel. Gold Rush and Jungle Gold were the top two programs in cable on Nov. 30 in cable among P/M/W25-54 and P/M18-49 delivery. Second only to Gold Rush, Jungle Gold was the #2 cable program (no exclusions) among P/M/W25-54 and P/M18-49 delivery on Friday night. Jungle Gold also out-delivered most broadcast programs among Men on Friday night, achieving the #4 spot in ALL OF TELEVISION in 18-49 delivery. Earning a 1.74 HH/1.54 P25-54 rating, Jungle Gold delivered 2.64 million viewers P2+, making it the highest rated telecast of the season in the P25-54 demo.

So, regardless of whether or not they are on the gold—and as fans of the show know, they definitely are NOT on the gold so far—people are watching Scott and George plunder their way through Ghana each week, making a mess and having nothing to show for it.

Stay tuned for this week’s season finale, “Armed Robbery,” when Scott and George risk their lives to turn their luck around with a shady gold deal in the bush.

Jungle Gold airs on the Discovery Channel on Friday nights at 10/9c, following Gold Rush at 9/8c.

UPDATED: Fans wonder, "Is this show fake?"

Seriously, these guys didn't see this coming? First thing I would have done was switch the gold into a different bag or hid it in the truck (and brought weapons or armed body guards) that's a ton of $...wow, if these guys go back, they'll be killed because they're really not very bright...

Please, guys, don't go back. You are painful to watch and you will be killed (Unless the whole show if FAKE, which I think it is)

These guys are the stupidest two morons I've ever seen. A ten year boy has more common sense. GO BACK TO AFRICA MAN! Because your life insurance is worth more to your family than you guys are. Funny coincidence how they are robbed when they have no other outlets to obtain money for the new claim. And how they seem like there will be no problems with money as they are returning home. Could it be they have a little 35k stash somewhere waiting to be picked up. 5K for the robbery setup and 15k each leftover. Hmm??????? Real stupid or a real good setup. Either way, stupid makes for good TV.

I would never have stopped for a road block that wasn't there 10 minutes earlier. The only thing these guys know about the criminal element is what they have in a video game at home. They were advertising, "Please Rob Us."

Im watching this and being a trained military police man, combat vet, opfor trained weapons expert - there was noting right about this situation. First no situational awareness or gut instinct these 2 used. I would guess that they end up more broke than when they started. I would question who would be stupid enough to walk around with that kind of cash - tv crews without armed personnel ......... No very wise!

WHAT KIND OF ABSOLUTE NAIVE DESPERATE RETARD WOULD HAPPILY GIVE AWAY EVERY SINGLE PENNY , THAT HE HAD ALREADY SWINDLED OUT OF INVESTORS WHO HE MOST LIKELY LIED AND BEGGED . AWNSER = SCOTT LOMO AND GEORGE WRIGHT . TWO COMPLETE IDIOTS IN THIS WORLD . THESE GUYS SHOULD PROBABLY BE ON SUICIDE WATCH , I MEAN EVERYONE IN AMERICA JUST SAW ONLY A FEW OF THEIR MORE RECENT SHAMEFUL MOMENTS . THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAN NOT BE PROUD OF THESE TOO

Where is all the equipment they purchased, other idiots kept it because they spent money digging holes for nothing on their claim when it wasn't their equipment,, doesn't add up. How about the 2 rock crushers they paid $5000.00 for each one, where did they go. Who would pay someone $50,000 for a claim when that person had several hundred thousands dollars of gold in a house. Why would that person need $50,000 when they had so much gold in a house, why wouldn't they mine it themselves or higher cheep labor. The dark haired guy has drug problems, always sniffing and you can see it in his eyes. If this show isn't fake someone needs to admit these two guys into a addiction program or asylum.

The comment above is so true. No mention of tieing up loose ends to anything such as their debtors, fixing the claim sites as required, where their equipment is. The producers just left everyone hanging. Will they be back next week/season, hmmm.
