How Much Family Members Get Paid To Do The Show
While the Brown family isn’t synonymous with luxury and glamour, fans of the show love watching the famous clan on Alaskan Bush People, and it’s time to discuss their collective net worth. From family drama to tragedy and heartbreak, the Browns have entertained viewers for several years. Fans of the Discovery series would like to know how much the family members get paid to do the show, and live their lives on camera.
Alaskan Bush People season 14 is currently airing, and the family continues to rough it in the wild, at their mountain homestead in Washington State. The Browns claim that they live off their land, by hunting, fishing, and foraging. The clan consists of 57-year-old matriarch Ami Brown, the widow of patriarch Billy Brown, and their seven children: Matt, Joshua (also known as Bam Bam), Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird, and Rain Brown.
The Brown Family Is Reportedly Wealthy
The outwardly easygoing Brown family from Alaskan Bush People is believed to earn much more than many fans realize. Not only is the family earning a paycheck for each episode, but they also have money coming in from other sources. According to The Sun, the Alaskan Bush People family’s net worth is $60 million, and Billy reportedly had a personal estimated net worth of $6 million upon his passing, as per InTouch Weekly.
The success of the series has solidified big paychecks for the entire family unit. However, it is reported that they all make different amounts per episode, due to varying levels of participation. Most fans will note that Ami’s son Matt is no longer receiving a paycheck, as he was let go from the show. Fans may be surprised to learn that, when the family ventured to California for Ami’s cancer treatments, they could afford a $2.7 million dollar mansion, which is situated in Beverly Hills, as per InTouch Weekly.
The family has had some significant setbacks, thanks to a summer of wildfires that ruined their mountain retreat. They lost almost all their buildings, and had to set their livestock free. There have been numerous rumors that the family is feuding, and several siblings have chosen to distance themselves from their parents. Gabe mentioned that once he got married, he moved off the mountain to be with his wife and new daughter. Noah and his wife Rhain moved to Colorado, while Bam Bam, who lives with producer Allison Kagan, has nothing to do with his family.
Only time will tell if network higher-ups feel that this family and reality show is worth investing in for future seasons. While the show has progressed for many years, some feel that it is time for the series to end. Other fans think that it’s well worth the payout, as they can’t get enough of Alaskan Bush People.
