Born the youngest child of Minnie and Tony Beets, Monica, along with her two older brothers Kevin and Mike, and her only sister Bianca, began working on her father’s mining exploration at age 12. By the age of 16, Monica was already operating heavy machinery and knew the family business well. It is known that Monica learned to drive when she was eight years old.
In 2017, Monsters and Critics asked her if she had ever considered taking a career path other than mining, to which Monica replied, “I was never given a choice.
Neither me or my brothers or my sister were. Once we were big enough to get to the pedals, we were on a machine.”
There is no information about Monica’s education, although she has taken several courses in Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and for Emergency Medical Services (EMS), as she is interested in becoming a paramedic in the future.
Monica Beets first appeared on the Discovery Channel’s reality series “Gold Rush” in the second season, when her father Tony joined the show with his mining team. Monica’s family soon became known as the Beets crew, based in Canada, where they ran mining operations across the country.
Monica and her family appeared in the following seasons of the show and successfully won millions of dollars in gold.
Despite Monica’s young age, her experience operating heavy machinery and knowledge of mining and crew management led her to become supervisor of her family’s Paradise Hill mine at the age of 18 and then also in charge of Eureka Creek.
Monica is an expert operator of a variety of machines such as loaders and graders. When asked about her favorite outfit to work with, she replied, “I’m most comfortable on a 988 charger. I walked there for the first four years that I worked for my father.
I just feel super comfortable in it. It’s fun. But what we normally do now, I really enjoy driving the excavator, loading trucks. I don’t like the plant – that’s the worst job in the world, feeding the plant.’
Her competitiveness has developed a rivalry between her and her brother Kevin. However, she maintains a friendly relationship with him: ‘I have a close relationship with both my brothers. And at work we just bully each other. How we show affection is that we just bully each other. We’re almost bullies, but it’s just how we show love.”
Monica has also spoken of her experience working in a predominantly male-dominated environment, citing her mother Minnie as her inspiration for how to cope: “Mom is a great role model.
She doesn’t take anything from anyone, which is great. You have to have that attitude, especially in a truly male-oriented workforce. You can’t let the shit get under your skin. You have to be strong, go with the blow, and know that no matter how shitty it is, you’ll always have to prove yourself, because you’re a woman in the field.’
She also wants to encourage young girls interested in gold mining to follow their dreams: ‘Don’t take no for an answer and go for it. If it’s what you want to do, just go for it. And don’t let what other people think of you get you down. Because it’s not what they think that matters, it’s what you think.’
Monica’s parents Tony and Minnie have been together for over 40 years. They met in the Netherlands when they were both children and started dating in 1979. They married shortly before moving to Canada in 1984 in search of new opportunities and starting their family there.
Tony grew up on a farm where he milked cows and operated machinery. Despite his humble origins, his family currently operates one of the most prominent mining operations in the Klondike, with the Tamarack Mine, Scribner Creek and Eureka Creek.
Monica is a fan of tattoos and piercings and has many on her body. When it comes to tattoos, she chooses to get inked with things that have meaning, or are important to her.
She is also a fan of punk music and named her husky dog after her favorite musician Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, of the legendary band The Misfits.
Monica married Taylor Mayes on August 11, 2018. Months before the wedding ceremony in Monica’s hometown of Dawson City, in Yukon, she appeared with her parents on TLC’s famous show “Say Yes to the Dress.” Monica and her mother tried to keep Tony at his best, though they couldn’t contain his foul language when choosing a wedding dress: “When I come here, Minnie and Monica, they made me watch a few episodes because they said: “You’ll have to behave.” So today I’m pretty much going to be on my best fucking demeanor” were Tony’s words.
Tony didn’t care about money, but about his daughter’s happiness on her special day, saying how generous the family’s budget for the wedding was: “I don’t give a damn about the costs.”
The process of choosing a wedding dress and the preparations for the ceremony were a success, and Monica tied the knot in a beautiful strapless dress. Even Monica’s dog attended the beautiful ceremony attended by her family and close friends, which aired on the ninth season of “Gold Rush” in an episode titled “Wedding Bells & Emergency Operations”.
As of 2020, Monica Beets’ net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, which is the result of her work as a miner and appearances on the hit show “Gold Rush”.
She considered Monica a beautiful woman of white descent, with blond hair and beautiful blue eyes. Her height is 1.62 m and her current weight is estimated at 62 kg.
Monica’s father Tony has been nicknamed “Tony Beeps” because of his colorful and coarse language. In an interview with Monsters and Critics, Monica explained this particular trait of her father: “He’s worked in pipelines, trucks over ice. He’s in the oil fields. He’s done a lot and when you’re in this workforce it’s just the language. Everyone is rude and rude.’

Parker Schnabel, who reportedly fell in love with Monica during the second season of “Gold Rush,” joked on Facebook about not receiving an invitation to her wedding. to this Monica replied:: ‘I said come to the reception and the party, but the ceremony was only for close friends and family. Already had their own film crew, no need for a duplicate!’.
Monica has stated that she doesn’t watch the show because she works mining seven months a year and doesn’t want to see that kind of content on her vacations.
When asked what she does in her spare time, she replied: ‘I go for a walk with the dog and I like to travel. I do cross stitch and native beadwork and things like that, crafty stuff. And do as little as possible.’

It has been speculated that her father has a forward-thinking mindset, as he doesn’t mind his daughter working in a mine — which is often considered a male-only work environment. Monica clarified the subject in an interview, saying that her father is both open-minded about some things, but old-fashioned in others: “Daddy is both. He doesn’t care what your gender is, when you’re on a device, girls can do just as well as men, sometimes even better. But whether it’s heavy lifting or shoveling or labor, it doesn’t matter if you have five girls, that one guy will be taken for that because “it’s not a girl’s job.” If something needs to be cleaned, we are apparently good for that. He is both.’
