Sarah Palin’s Alaska wrapped up its first and final season with two hours of Palin-mania: Our Sarah and her family went gold-prospecting, kayaking, blueberry-picking, and moose-kissing. (You do it by putting a banana in your mouth and extending it to the moose’s mouth. No kidding.) Palin also offered her own critique of the infamous Kate Gosselin episode. Really two episodes shown back-to-back, Sarah Palin’s Alaska spent much of the first hour in Nome, “on a quest for gold,” Palin said, and in Valdez, “where the original Gold Rush began.”
She rode a four-wheeled ATV in Nome to a stretch of beach where gold might be found. Palin’s goal was to find enough for a present for her mother: “a piece of jewelry with [some] gold we found ourselves.” She and various members of her family, including husband Todd, daughter Piper, and her father Chuck, did the contemporary version of panning for gold. Later, her brother Chuck, Jr., and another diver plunged into the ocean to gather gold on the bottom of the sea. Sarah helped supply the air and hot water being pumped down to the divers, leading Chuck to exclaim, “Our life is in your hands, Sarah!”
Palin and her family found more than an ounce of gold — worth, the clan was told, “more than $1,150.” “We were blessed,” said Sarah. The gold was melted down and made into a ring for Sarah’s mom and a plaque for her dad, for their 50th anniversary — the golden anniversary, appropriately enough.
