It’s not a huge surprise that Moonshiners fans would think Mark Ramsay and Digger Manes are more than business partners. The Appalachian Mountains natives have been brewing their illegal alcohol for years — and even teamed up to get even after fellow moonshiner, Mike, blew up their still last season.
“People that grow up in this region, that’s in this culture, they understand that the way this happened and went down was total disrespect of our rules and traditions,” Mark said of the betrayal on the Discovery Channel series. “It’s up to us as traditional moonshiners to try to instill in him the proper way to do business.”
That’s not stopping viewers from shipping the overall-wearing pals. “Mark and Digger from Moonshiners are my gay OTP,” one fan tweeted.
Despite rumors, it’s safe to say Mark and Digger are not together romantically — and are bound only by their shared interest in revenge and brewing the best blended apple rye brandy.
Mark is married — but his wife remains out of the spotlight.
While Mark and Digger have no problem putting their illegal business in front of cameras, the same can’t be said for their personal life. It is well-known that Mark is married – his wife has been spotted by fans at moonshine-related events — but very little is known about his real-life partner.
