The "Alaskan Bush People" controversy continues despite this show being dissected and put under a microscope recently in an attempt to point out just who these folks really are. While the "Alaskan Bush People" Reality Show is extremely popular, it seems the time has come to take the Brown family for one just offering entertainment rather than accurately depicting their lifestyle for the cameras. According to latest reports they are not necessarily the best representation of a family living off the grid honing in on survival tactics.

Victims, no they are not victims!

According to the Inquisitr, one of the more disturbing facts is how Billy Brown and his family are seen as victims of the Alaskan court system for being sentenced to 30 days of incarceration.

The story from the "Alaskan Bush People" family was that they collected checks as residents of Alaska and were wrongly accused of not being residents of that state during that time.    

Dividend checks from the oil production in that state are sent to every Alaskan family on a yearly basis. The Browns did admit that they had left the state for close to a period of three years. In October of 2009 they left Alaska and didn't return until August of 2012. During that time, they continued collecting those checks despite the law saying you must live in the state for the majority of the calendar year to be eligible for this dividend.      

Who built Browntown?

Folks feel sorry for this family who are roughing it in the wilderness with little to nothing to call their own, but this is just a setting created for this reality show.

Still, they continue to send the family money! It looks as if the Browntown site wasn't even built by the family, it was part of the production crew's work along with some outside help. 

Paychecks do not indicate this is a destitute family

The Inquistr also invites their readers to take a good look at some of the clothes this family is sporting while being "poor" and living in the bush. Some of the labels on their attire are not economical purchases! According to the website Reality Stars Net Worth, Billy Brown has a net worth of about $500,000. Each of his kids are paid per episode of the "Alaskan Bush People" show, leaving their net worth each of $40,000 to $60,000. Add all this money together and the Brown's seem to be doing alright financially on paper anyway!

Survival of the fittest, no not here!

One of the most disturbing aspects of this reality show is that people believe they are watching the "Alaskan Bush People" using their survival skills to live off the grid. Because the show is mostly scripted and they go back to a hotel to sleep after a day of filming, the Brown family members are probably not the best "teachers" of how to survive in the wilderness.

So taking tips from them might not be your best course of action if you should decide to try your hand at living off the grid. They do a good job at portraying children of the wild by dubbing themselves a "wolf pack" and howling at each other, but is this all for the show?

Alaska not represented properly?

Apparently the "Alaskan Bush People" have not accurately represented the state of Alaska, which was pointed out by quite a few of the folks who actually live in the state. Apparently the critics see the Brown family as not showing the more positive aspects of Alaska as a state. You can go out in the woods and live just about anywhere in the nation and find the gloom and hardship shown on "Alaskan Bush People."

Season 6 on the way?

While the Discovery Channel hasn't posted official word of a season 6 of the "Alaskan Bush People" Matt Brown did say that his family was working with the crew on a new season, which is due to come out sometime in November. Considering November is just a few weeks away, it seems a bit strange that nothing official has been announced about a new season of this reality show as of yet. Have we seen the last of the "Alaskan Bush People?"
