The show also features the homesteaders who live nearby and interact with the Kilchers. Written by
This show is a load of staged nonsense, it shows nothing about real Alaska. The reality of Alaska is that nobody lives like this, much less these people. Source: I live five miles from these people, in Homer. Otto owns a machine shop, Atz is a wealthy musician, the show is just designed to make it look like they fight for survival when there's a paved road and a grocery store just a few miles away. These people are a laughing stock in my town, and nobody likes the way they misrepresent Alaska. Stop buying this garbage and don't think we're all like this, nobody is. It seriously bothers me to see how many people totally buy this. We hunt, we fish, we do rough it, but it's not a survival situation 24/7 like the kilchers would have you believe.
