'Life Below Zero' Star Andy Bassich Brings His New Girlfriend to Alaska

By Anna Quintana

There is one good thing that came out of Andy Bassich's hip injury — he was able to spend more time with his new girlfriend while recuperating in Florida. 

Denise Becker is a trauma nurse who recently made the move to Alaska with the Life Below Zero star, who is determined to get his home and dogs ready for the upcoming winter. 

However, that is going to be tough, seeing as now Andy is dependent on crutches. "I ended up with two infections — one in the muscle, one in the bone — and it almost killed me," he explained on the show. "It's time to get back to my home in Calico Bluff, play a little bit of catch up this summer with getting my dogs back down there, getting my house back in order... It's been unmanned and unguarded for six months so I have no idea what kind of conditions I'm going to be walking into. It's going to be challenging to get everything done using [crutches]."  

Luckily, he has Denise by his side.
