Monica Beets is a gold miner and reality star famous for appearing in the fifth season of Gold Rush. She is 30 years old as of 2023, and her husband is Taylor Mayes. Beets has a net worth of $2 million.
Although she only became famous after her television appearance, Monica was already making waves on her own as a respectable female miner. Read on for more information on her.
How Old is Monica Beets?
Monica Beets is currently 30 years old as of 2023. She was born under the Scorpio star sign on November 7, 1993. Born in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada, Monica has Canadian nationality and is of Caucasian descent. Her parents’ names are Tony Beets and Minnie Beets.
Besides her, Monica’s parents had four other children together. Their names are Michale, Bianca, Kevin, and Jasmine. They grew up in Yukon, Canada.
Where did Monica Beets Grow Up?
Monica spent most of her childhood in her hometown, Dawson City, Yukon. Her father is a renowned gold producer who worked in Paradise Hills, while her mother was an accountant at the mining company. Growing up, Monica was surrounded by several gold machines. She developed a deep sense of love and curiosity towards these metal monsters and often followed her father to his mining sites.
When she was 12, Monica’s father tested her tenacity by leaving her in a front-end loader without assistance. Little Monica then proved that she had what it takes to be a miner by moving scoops of tailings all over the mine. She started working at the mine full-time when she was 16, and by 18, she was promoted to a supervisor role.
Like her, most of Monica’s siblings also share a love for gold mining. Her older brother, Kevin Beets, works as a mechanic at Paradise Hills, while Mike Beets once worked as a supervisor at the company as well. However, her sister Bianca appears to be a recluse. She prefers to stay away from the media and does not appear to be actively involved in the family business.
What Does Monica Beets Do For a Living?
Monica Beets is a professional gold miner and reality television star. Having shown a strong zeal for gold mining from a young age, Monica was able to garner more than enough knowledge to succeed in the trade. However, she did note that the climb to success was not an easy one, as she had to deal with a lot of older men at the Paradise Hills mine.
Being that these men were older than her and had been at the mine far longer than she, they looked down on her and felt reluctant to obey the orders she gave out. But, being more knowledgeable than they were, Monica was able to exercise her authority over them and gain their respect along the line.
Monica Beets’ Television Appearance
Monica Beets stepped into the limelight in 2014 after she, alongside her family members, starred in the Discovery Channel reality show Gold Rush. Although her family had been in the show since its premiere season aired in 2010, Monica only appeared in the fifth season. Since then, the formidable gold miner has been a part of the show, working alongside other crew members to provide a realistic view of the gold miners’ everyday life.
Some of the highlights of her stay in the show include rescuing her father from a fire that broke out in his dredge, taking charge of a dredge crew at 22, and dealing with other challenges such as bear invasions, rivalry with other miners, breakdowns, and floods.
Monica Beets’ Net Worth
Monica Beets’ net worth is estimated at about $2 million. Although the exact figure she earns from mining has not yet been released, it is supposed that the greater part of her net worth is from her television appearances. Perhaps when her income from mining gets revealed, she will be worth a lot more than has been currently estimated.
Is Monica Beets Married or in a Relationship?
Monica Beets is currently married to Taylor Mayes. The couple got married on August 11, 2018, and have been together for 5 years now. Their wedding was a lovely outdoor ceremony held in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada, with a few friends and families in attendance.
Taylor is a very reserved person who prefers to stay away from the paparazzi of being a celebrity spouse. The only available information on him is that he is a Canadian who was born and currently resides in Dawson City, Yukon.
The couple met while they were working together before kicking off a relationship that soon led to marriage. However, unlike her professional life, Monica prefers to keep details of her private life safely tucked away from the public, and there is no information on where or when she met her husband. But we can tell you that they are currently living happily together with their daughter in a house that they built together.
How Many Children Does Monica Beets Have?
Monica Beets only has one child with her husband. Unlike most celebrities, Monica and her husband have chosen not to pull their sweet daughter into their professional lives and are, instead, letting her enjoy a normal childhood.
However, a walk through Monica’s Instagram handle shows how much she adores her daughter, as cute pictures of the blonde-haired princess can be found everywhere. Besides their daughter, Monica and Taylor are also human parents to two lovely dogs named Doyle and Chester.
