He was initially the chief of the boat ‘Rose’ in the show which was later replaced by his personally owned boat, ‘Saga’. The dangers of the show are so high that even death does not surprise any and is never ruled out.
The show, which started in 2005, substantially helped Elliott Neese’s net worth to reach $500 thousand in 2016. Elliott grew up with fishing. At the tender age of 12, he was already on the fishing boats and by the time he reached 19, he was successfully managing his very own cod boat, his first. Growing up, he had the rare privilege of getting trained by various captains which eventually made him the pro that he is with the ways of the sea. His big break came when he joined the Discovery Channel show from its seventh season as the youngest of all captains of the show. Since then he had been scaling new heights and climbing the popularity charts.
Neese’s personal life has also been a roller coaster ride. With his ex-girlfriend, Valerie Gunderson, he had two kids. However, they got estranged because of Elliott’s fiery temper, as well as drinking and drug addiction. In 2012, she even lodged a case of harassment and physical abuse against him. He was finally given restraining orders. His problem and addiction grew to such an extent that he had to exit from the show and get himself into a rehab. It was here in the rehab that he met his current girlfriend, Erika Fridenbergs. As per his Tweets, he is gloriously happy with her. He would still be away from the show which is in its twelfth season. He spoke of needing a break before starting afresh and everybody is waiting to welcome him back.
