According to one of our sources, Steve Riedel was born on 1 October 1954 and thus he was 66 years of age, as of May 2021. Furthermore, since he celebrated his birthday every year on the 1st of October, his zodiac sign was Libra.
His Family, Hometown
We do not know much about Steve’s family before his marriage. We do not know the names of her parents or any siblings–if there were any.
However, we do know a little about his hometown though, and tiny bits of his life in his hometown. Steve was born and grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. He spent all way to his college days in his hometown. He went to Dimond High School, Anchorage. And for his college, he went to the University of Alaska, also in his hometown of Anchorage.
Another interesting bit about his childhood was the fact that when he was 9, he had encountered the Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964, which remains the most powerful recorded earthquake in the Northern hemisphere. It was of magnitude 9.2.
Steve Riedel Height
Steve Riedel stands at a modest, or slightly below average, the height of 5 ft 9 inches. He has brown hair which he wore short. Similarly, he has light blue eyes. And he always wears his brown beard.
His Instagram, Facebook
We could not find Steve on Instagram. However, he was featured a couple of times on his daughter’s Instagram. His daughter, Emily (read about her in the next two sections), had a massive following of 32.3k on Instagram.
Steve was present on Twitter and Facebook but did not really have any significant following. On Twitter, he entertained 2.7k followers as of May 2021. Similarly, he had a regular Facebook account with almost 4k friends.
Steve Riedel Net Worth
As of 2021, Steve Riedel had accumulated a net worth of about $1 million. In comparison, Emily’s net worth was assumed to be around $250 thousand.
Well, we do not know much about jobs and occupations that Steve had had in the past. We peeked into his LinkedIn profile, but there was nothing about his employment. There was the mention of where he went for his college, which we have already discussed.
And there were a couple of humorous remarks regarding his job experience. One entry was Unemployed at Nome, Alaska. And the other was Home and stuck there at Homer, Alaska. Similarly, on the work section of his Facebook profile, he had written “too much work, not enough play”.
To be honest, Steve was most likely self-employed. That is when he was not working for gold-digging with his daughter Emily and appearing on TV shows. So far, he has three TV credits, all for different renditions for Bering Sea Gold.
Steve first appeared in Bering Sea Gold in 2012. At that time, they had just arrived at Nome, Alaska wanting to dredge the sea gold. While Emily was one of the mainstays of the show, Steve remained only a recurring character in the show.
In the last season, i.e. 9th season of the show, Steve was part of Emily’s crew. However, the reports are coming that Steve might be leading his own dredging team in the 10th season.
Back in 2012, Steve also appeared in a couple of episodes of another spinoff of the show called Bering Sea Gold: After the Dredge. He was also a part of Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice, a documentary about the making of the show.
Steve Riedel Wife, Kids
We know a lot about his kids, especially a lot about one of his kids. We know nothing about his wife, except that she is probably his ex-wife by now. Whoever his wife was once upon a time, she is no longer. And Steve was most likely single at this point.
With his former wife, Steve had four kids: two sons, Nathan and Paul, and two daughters, Emily and Liz. You have read a little about his daughter Emily already. She is a pioneer, a lone woman working in a job full of men and proving that women can do whatever men can.
His other daughter, Liz, was married to a guy called Josh and just had had a baby in 2019. Emily, meanwhile, had previously dated the fellow cast of Bering Sea Gold Zeke Tenhoff.
Both of his sons were also married. Paul was married to a woman called Crystal Riedel and they lived in Homer, Alaska. And Nathan was married to Natalie Riedel and currently lived in Seattle, Washington.
From his three married children, Steve had a total of 14 grandchildren.
As evidenced by numerous of Emily’s IG posts, the Riedel kids had a very good bond with each other.
