'Bering Sea Gold'

Bearded Fist Fight

on Reunion Show

3/16/2012 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0316_bering_sea_videoReunion show fights are usually reserved for "Real Housewives" and "Bachelor" wannabes -- but a fracas broke out this week between two of the cast members from the show "Bering Sea Gold" over allegations of stealing.

During the taping, a red-faced Vernon Atkinson accused his captain, Scott Meisterheim, of lying, cheating and stealing from him. That didn't sit well with Scott, and after he threw a drink at Vernon ... the two went to blows. 

According to our sources, paramedics and police were called to the scene. Both guys suffered cuts and bruises, but no charges were filed. 

The reunion specials air March 23 and 30 at 10:00 PM on Discovery.

But in all seriousness... what a waste of a perfectly good beer

This type of fakery happens when the ratings are low. Now why didn't this fight shena****n happen when there were no cameras?? Hmmmmm? Because it's fake! Now if he whipped out a gold Desert Eagle, this would be good television and great ratings.

And of course the fight will be played on the show. They wouldn't dare keep it out since it is all staged for ratings. Nice to let everyone know that a huge fight is going to happen so everyone watches to see who gets beat up.

I actually like the show. Too bad it is lost in the effort to make drama. No longer reality. It was a good show. Hope it turns back around.

Punch and Judy. Alaska is the last frontier and you're going to have that occasional shootout.

The clowns crying fake obviously havent seen the show. That was clearly a real connection to the face and the young guy had serious anger issues. Stop watching Jersey Shore and get a clue what scripted is dbags
