For most women, being labeled a gold digger would be considered an appearance-based slur. Nothing says “greedy witch” quite like trying to marry for money, after all, but if you made that assumption about Tyler Mahoney, you’d be dead wrong and then some.
Mahoney is an attractive model, and she’s proud to be called a gold digger, but for entirely different reasons. She’s one of the stars of “Aussie Gold Hunters,” and the gold Mahoney is after is the shiny stuff you dig out of the ground.
So how did she get here? Let’s explore. Mahoney definitely has an intriguing story to tell, and to a large extent it’s really all about the gold.
The 21-year old Mahoney hails from Western Australia, and she grew up in the mining town of Kalgoorlie.
You could say that Mahoney has gold in her blood. Her entire family has been searching for the stuff for years, to the point where they started The Prospector’s Club, which offers real-life tricks of the trade.
She’s a fourth-generation gold digger, and historically there’s been plenty to find in Western Australia, dating back to an 1800s gold rush.
Given the combination of her savvy about all things gold, the history behind it and her stunning looks, it’s hardly surprising that Mahoney would turn up on the “Gold Rush” series. She gives the series both color and contrast, not to mention the fact that she’s serious eye candy.
Mahoney isn’t exactly unaware of her stunning looks, and she’s also aware that the modeling game can be summed up with the phrase “strike now while you’re young and hot.”
She certainly has that part under control, to the point where Mahoney is estimated to be worth over $1 million. Mahoney is something of a fitness addict, and she models her own swimwear on Instagram. She’s also been a part of Fashion week, so fans searching for flashy photos won’t run into a shortage of sources.
Mahoney is an outdoors buff as well, so the time she’s able to spend hiking and skiing is about as idyllic as it gets for someone with her skills and attributes.
She has the world by a string at the moment, but that’s not the part of Tyler Mahoney’s life that most of her fans are curious about.
Okay, now let’s get to the heart of the matter: Is Tyler Mahoney single, and if so, who’s she dating?
That question has been at the heart of “Gold Rush” for a while now. When Mahoney first appeared with the show’s main star, Parker Schnabel, fans were hoping that sparks would fly and they’d have plenty of juicy rumors to follow.
Unfortunately, the rumors are false. Tyler and Parker are not in a romantic relationship. According to her Instagram account she appears to be dating a guy named Jake Bennett.
