A “gruff, no-nonsense tough guy” Andrew “Andy” Kelly is none other than Kris Kelly‘s bigger little brother as seen on Discovery Channel’s Bering Sea Gold. Like his brother, younger Kelly is The Reaper’s resident gold hound and he is also responsible for the bulk of the gold recovered by the family so far.

In these gold mining series, besides the mining, there also has been a whole load of drama. And one of these also famously involved Andy. In the more recent (January 2023) episode “Brawl of Duty” viewers saw things get physical between Andy and Shawn Pomrenke as what first started as an argument escalated resulting in some fist fight.
So, Andy’s family contributed to the controversy of such kind time and time again.
Viewers also have seen Andy and his brother bicker like the best of them, enough times. Of course, Andy also has regularly butted heads with his father. In fact, both brothers occasionally have had issues with their dad. A while ago, the latter took nearly $13,000 worth of gold from his sons. When confronted, he justified his actions by saying that he set up the boys with their mining careers.
