Storyline

Buying Alaska proves that forgoing basic amenities is a reasonable tradeoff when it comes to breathtaking views and stunning wild surroundings that you can't find anywhere in the lower 48 states. Offering much more than living quarters, these properties are so in tune with the extraordinary landscape that it's often what's beyond the house that proves to be the main attraction, from the ability to hunt and fish from your back deck, to extreme seclusion on your own private island, to self-sustaining features such as smokehouses and greenhouses. However, there are also dangers that come with all the beauty, and living in this rugged and remote terrain can lead to animal attacks and brutal winters that cut you off from society.

Show is fake, good show but fake
24 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I love this show. Thought it was real. That was until I spoke with one of the couples from season two, I asked them how they liked the house they chose, they told me that they didn't buy anything. It was all for the show. That their actual house was used for another episode. They said that all the properties on the show are actually for sale but that the people on the show are not buying the houses. It's all for entertainment. The show is always been very interesting but it sucks knowing it's not real. Was also told that they don't show the really bad stuff of the property like the couple told me that one of the houses they saw on the show has all the wood on the property was rotten and poor condition, they won't show the real condition of it because they are for sale.
