After facing several fake accusations from different critics, it seems like the truth behind Discovery Channel?s Alaskan Bush People is already revealed through a recent interview with the oldest son of Billy Brown, Matt.
The oldest son of Billy and Ami recently talked to People and revealed some important information about the truth on how his family came to be in Alaska. According to the interview, his parents sold their family truck in 1983 to travel to Alaska by ship.
Upon arriving, they spent the first 18 months in a trapper shack on an island. Matt?s parents then realized that living in the wilderness was really difficult to handle but they knew that they could definitely survive. ?After we realized we weren?t going to die, we fell in love with everything,? says Billy in a previous statement.
Billy then published his own book about their experiences in the Alaskan wilderness. The Discovery Channel approached him for a reality TV show, which as of now has already captured an audience of around 5 million people. However, it seems that the whole show has been scripted the whole time.
Earlier this year, Billy and Joshua, his second-oldest son, were sentenced to 30 days in jail after lying about the Permanent Fund with the state of Alaska. It can be recalled that ever since Alaskan Bush People started in 2014, Billy stated that he and his family have lived in the wilderness for the past 30 years. But documents of the case revealed that they had not lived in Alaska from 2009 to 2012. Also, when the verdict was handed down, the Browns was not even living in the state.
With that fact alone, it is pretty clear that not everything each character on the show says is true. Another statement that strengthen claims of the show being fake is the one that came from the locals near Browntown. Jay Erickson and Becky Hunnicutt told Radar Online that they have seen the Brown family come and go in a nearby hotel, Icy Strait Lodge, which is obviously contrary to Billy?s statement of living in the wilderness for 30 years.
If that is the case, then fans should really think about the authenticity of the show and if it is indeed a ?reality show.? How about you? Do you think that the Alaskan Bush People is fake? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
