'Gold Rush' Star Parker Schnabel Blames Himself for Split With Ashley Youle

By Anna Quintana

Last year, it was revealed that Gold Rush star Parker Schnabel had split from his girlfriend, Ashley Youle — and he took the blame for the breakup. 

Along with revealing that he did not make their relationship "a priority," Parker also suggested during the episode "Win Big or Die Trying" that Ashley "could do better" than him thanks to her "sweet" personality. He ended the confession by calling the split a "failure."

Why Ashley left Parker — in a nutshell: 

"As successful as our season was, there was, for me personally, one pretty big failure," he said on the show. "Ashley and I broke up. I just never really made the relationship a priority, didn't make her a priority, and she deserves a lot better than that. At the end of the day, I do think she is doing what's best for her and that's the hardest part of it... it's a real shame."
