Billy Brown, Ami, and their children have been documenting their unusual lifestyle in the Alaskan tropical forest for seven seasons already. The clan decided to recoil from the concrete jungle and live a humbler life surrounded by trees and undergrowth. This distinctive concept was enough to draw many viewers around the globe. However, rumors are rife that “Alaskan Bush People” could possibly be fake after some locals reportedly sighted the brood living a comfortable life in Hoonah, Alaska.

Is the series fake and scripted?

Radar Online reported that “Alaskan Bush Peoplemight be fictitious and scripted.

Billy Brown previously claimed that his family has lived in the boondocks for 30 years. The patriarch even stated that his seven children – Matt, Bam, Gabe, Bear, Noah, Bird and Rainy – were all born and raised in the bush.

However, two insiders told the news outlet that the Brown family might have been deceiving fans for years as they have, allegedly, lived in a luxurious hotel in Hoonah, Alaska, when not filming. Jay Erickson and Becky Hunnicutt divulged to Radar Online that Billy, Ami, and their children have been going back and forth between the Icy Strait Lodge. The sources even claimed that all of the boys have their own rooms.

Becky added that Matt lived with some “Alaskan Bush People” crew and staff at the Misty Bay Lodge, which is near the supposed secret home of the Brown family.

The tipsters even said the reality stars only spent a few nights in the Browntown while the cameras were rolling. Adding fuel to the fire is an In Touch Weekly report claiming that the family is now living in a million-dollar mansion in Los Angeles.

Billy and his children decided to shut down their homestead after learning that Ami has a stage-4 lung cancer.

While these speculations could possibly be true, Discovery Channel has yet to confirm or deny these claims. Therefore, devoted followers of the popular reality series should take these reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

Is Ami’s deteriorating health overly dramatized?

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Life reported that Ami Brown’s lung cancer diagnosis might affect the fate of the “Alaskan Bush People” series.

The matriarch herself admitted that she might be in her last days. However, the 53-year-old reality star refused to give up and succumb to her fatal disease.

"Worrying about it only makes it worse. There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up,” Billy’s wife previously told People. “I tell people be happy. Just be happy,” she went on. Ami added she‘d fight for her life until her last breath.

However, some fans are claiming that the show is overly dramatizing the health condition of Ami Brown to win the hearts of many and boost its viewership. A number of viewers have even emphasized that Dr. Ann Raldow, the matriarch’s doctor from UCLA Medical Center, specialized in gastrointestinal malignancies.

Because of this, fans got confused if the diagnosis is valid or not.

It remains unclear how much time the Brown matriarch has left. In addition, no official cancellation nor renewal announcement has been made up to this writing. Stay tuned for more news and updates about the “Alaskan Bush People” show!
