Default You still think Alaska Reality Shows are real?

I live here and have been saying it for years. They are all FAKE, SCRIPTED and STAGED. I even worked with a few of them writing filming permits. Now here's proof, in a lawsuit.

Yah most "reality" TV shows are fake. If I watch any at all it's just for entertainment value.

I find it hard to believe anyone would think they are unscripted and real as it happens drama.
Some are entertaining and anytime I can see that landscape on tv I'll watch it

I liked that show too.

She is the worst part of that show. Always a predator trying to kill her. The best, is the family of Chip Hailstone, who is also a regular poster on The High Road, posting as Caribou. His family are subsistence hunters and fishermen, his wife is an Inupac indian, who can also hunt aquatic mammals. He hunts almost exclusively with a mosin nagant.

About the only one I ever thought was real was Alone in the Wilderness. Guy was **** Proeneke (spelling??). Self filmed and just a pleasure to watch.


God bless and happy hunting.

Sure they are real but things are really embellished. They are loaded and aren't far at all from town.

I can promise you that the Alaskan Bush People are no fakes. They really are that dumb in real life.

When He hunts,it's with a muzzle loader. He is a convicted felon and barred by law from handling any cartridge fireing firearm. Now his wife hunts with a mosin nagant.....

Know a guy that was a buyer on "Buying Alaska". Was 100% fake. He already lived there and was not even looking for a house.

Just before Christmas a judge cleared him. Apparently the state police altered recorded evidence and he proved it. Took 5 years to get conviction reversed, and he spent several months in prison. He is back with high power now. He posted reversal papers on THR.

Of course the shows are scripted and staged, just like everything else Hollywood does.
