14. The hosts travel in separate vehicles

Those doubters of the show’s “reality” claims also assert that, although the hosts are often seen driving together, Wolfe and Fritz actually travel in separate cars. Theorists allege that most of the duo’s car conversations are filmed before they set off on their quests for gold. It’s claimed that they then jump into separate vehicles before making their way towards their destinations along with a truck convoy containing all the necessary equipment.
