Alaskan Bush People Season 4 only has a few episodes left, and reports state that the show will soon tackle eldest son Matt?s troubles. It was previously reported that Matt secretly checked into rehab, and it was also revealed that he was charged with DUI back in 2013. With his drinking problems and other troubles, rumors suggest that Matt may soon leave the reality show in an attempt to get better. On the other hand, there?s also the possibility of the family leaving Browntown for good and moving into the city to be closer to Matt.
According to Inquisitr, the first option is more likely as Matt may not be able to get the help he needs if he continues filming for the show while in rehab. The report states that instead of the expected twist this season wherein Billy and his son Josh ?Bam Bam? go to jail for the fraud charges, Alaskan Bush People Season 4 may focus on Matt and his eventual departure from the reality series.
In fact, the show?s last episode has hinted of the show?s shift from the family?s woes to Matt?s story. According to Radar Online, the family?s patriarch Billy confronted Matt about ?going to town a lot and staying out longer? than he usually does. On camera, Billy said that something seems to be bothering his son and ?something just doesn?t seem right.?
Inquisitr reports that such confrontation seemed out of place in the show, and it?s reportedly possible that the Alaskan Bush People may be laying the groundwork for Matt?s confession about his inner demons in the coming episodes. It?s expected that the next episode may focus on Matt?s story, which could hint if he?ll indeed be leaving the show at the end of the season. Meanwhile, the report also states that the new episode may feature a minor time jump, supposedly after Billy and Bam serve their sentence but via electronic monitoring only.
Will Matt really leave the show? Or, will the family be forced to move to the city for him and abandon their ?life in the wild,? which apparently is fake anyway? Catch the?Alaskan Bush People Season 4 every Friday night on Discovery channel to find out.
