Rick Ness has maintained a close friendship with his co-star Ann Charton, which fueled speculation that the two were dating in real life. However, Ness has denied these claims and countered by posting photos of himself with his girlfriend Leese Marie on social media platforms. The two are seen looking happy together and seem to be in a loving relationship.
According to Rick, his girlfriend Leese Marie is a Wisconsin native and she loves everything that comes with being from the midwest, including hiking, camping, and mudding. She is also quite active and keeps a very fit image. She is a nurse by profession and worked in the nursing department for a while before she joined Gold Rush as part of Parker Schnabel’s team. She is an alumnus of a local college and has also completed a master’s degree in nursing.
Despite her impressive resume, she hasn’t managed to gain a lot of weight, mainly due to her condition. She suffers from a chronic illness, which prevents her from gaining more than a few pounds, so she has to exercise and eat a healthy diet in order to maintain her figure. She is quite tall and seems to be in her late 30s or early 40s, but other details about her aren’t available.
She has recently started an account on TikTok under the username lil_hurricane and has gained more than 2,000 followers. She is likely to make an appearance on the upcoming season of Gold Rush.
