Did Emily Riedel Quit Singing?
Growing up, Emily never thought she would grow up to pursue gold mining professionally. In fact, her first career choice was singing opera. She even went to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Music.
Upon graduation, she needed some money to pursue a career in opera. Since Emily did not have sufficient money to pursue a career in opera, she had no choice but to drop her plan.
As Emily was in desperate need of a job, when her friend Zeke Tenhoff offered her a job in Nome, Alaska, she immediately took the job. Since then, Emily has been involved in the gold mining business.
As of 2021, we had no idea if Emily had quit singing altogether.

Other than Bering Sea Gold, she has appeared in TV shows like Gold Divers, Gold Rush: The Dirt, Expedition Unknown, The Insider, among others.
Emily Riedel Husband, Fiance, Alex
Coming to Emily Riedel’s love life, we know that she dated her fellow cast member Zeke Tenhoff in the past.
Emily knew Zeke since her childhood and was a very good friend. As she closely worked on his dredge as a deckhand, the two got the chance to know each other clearly. In the summer of 2011, the lovebirds officially began dating.
But, as they got to know each other better, they realized their differences outnumbered their similarities. Plus, their professional life was also hampered a lot due to their relationship.
Therefore, the pair called it quits and stayed as friends thereafter.
For years after her split with her then-boyfriend Zeke, Emily remained mum about her relationship life. It was only on January 21, 2021, that we got to know that she was dating a man named Alex.
Not only were the couple dating, but they were already engaged too. Posting a picture of her and her fiance Alex, Emily captioned, “Blessed to be marrying a fine gentleman.” As the caption suggested, their wedding plans were not too far away.
Furthermore, Emily Riedel again made an Instagram post about her future husband, Alex on April 8, 2021. Through that Instagram post, she revealed that the pair first began dating in April 2020 and were matched by her brother Paul. She also revealed that their first date was at her Homer cabin.
While there was still some time left for Emily to welcome Alex as a husband in her life, she was already a mother to her adorable pet, Kiska, a dog.
