James Harness from "Gold Rush: Alaska" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

James Harness is irreplaceable. He is the team's only mechanic, and built most of the mining equipment from scratch. He's never mined for gold before but he prides himself on being able to fix any machine that he lays his hands on. In Alaska, his hands are full, because without round-the-clock maintenance and running repairs, the mining will grind to a halt. No one doubts James's ability or his commitment, but there are fears that his body will not be able to cope with the strain. A life led in the fast lane has taken its toll, particularly a car wreck that left him James with a severe spinal injury and an ankle held together with metal pins. James is determined not to let the team down, and is prepared to push himself to the limit at any cost.

James is my half brother, I didn't even know it till I saw this show. I felt a connection to him and thought he and me shared the same skills and smarts. I asked my mom one night if he was related to me. She said the minute she heard his voice on the TV she knew that was my step brother. I don't know him but know now that fixing things runs in the blood. GOOD LUCK JAMES
