Youle’s life took a new turn in 2016 when she marked her screen debut on season 7 of the hit reality TV series Gold Rush. She was introduced as the girlfriend of one of the show’s regular characters Parker Schnabel, a young millionaire who made his fortune through his family’s gold mining business. Gold Rush basically follows the activities of different family-owned mining businesses.
Ashley Youle marked her television debut on the 7th season of Gold Rush which premiered in October 2016, starring as Parker Schnabel’s lover. She met Schnabel during the off-season when the latter had embarked on a trip to her home country of Australia.

Schnabel invited her over to the United States where they spent more time together and their relationship officially commenced.
Youle appeared in a total of 26 Gold Rush episodes from 2016 to 2018. While on the show, she helped out in a number of mining activities such as the washing of the gold and also driving the trucks. However, there were concerns from people in the Yukon Territory of Canada where the mining took place over the fact that Youle was not qualified to work there because she only had a tourist visa.
Despite these issues, Parker Schnabel has revealed that Youle’s contributions, coupled with her jovial personality helped him achieve his set goals on Gold Rush season 7. Their relationship remained blissful well into the 8th season of the show. However, Gold Rush fans were met with a rude shock in March 2018 when Schnabel announced that his relationship with Youle had come to an end. According to him, he was mainly to blame for their breakup as he had been too focused on his career and had relegated his relationship with Youle to the background.
