About Hugh Rowland
Canadian truck driver and reality television personality, Hugh Rowland has an estimated net worth of $2 million. Known as the “Polar Bear,” Hugh is the main driver chronicled on the popular series, “Ice Road Truckers” on the History Channel. The series premiere, which began as a stand-alone documentary as part of the History Channel’s “Suicide Mission” series, became one of the most watched debut programs in the network’s history. The show chronicles Mr. Rowland and his crew, as they navigate the ice roads that connect drilling and mining crews to mainland supplies in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The “ice roads” are actually frozen lakes that are only passable at certain times of the year, and must be navigated carefully. The men and women who drive the trucks with supplies, are often under extremely tight deadlines. The show is currently in its fifth season, and continues to garner strong ratings. It now airs in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, as well. For the past seasons Hugh run the Dalton, and proven himself as one of the best drivers on the ice. Hugh can drive all night, work all day and still have time to spout lots of opinions about those who fall short of his work ethic.
