The 'Alaskan Bush' Family Has Way More Money Than You Think

By Anna Quintana

This season on Alaskan Bush People, viewers will see the Browns attempt to convert their new home in Washington into a self-sustaining ranch that will decrease their need for the outside world to almost nothing. 

However, buying 400 acres of land in Washington does not come cheap, which is why many fans of the Discovery Channel show are wondering just how much the network pays Billy, Ami, and their seven kids to appear on television

"@Discovery you have great shows, but I wish you'd stop playing the people as poor..." one fan tweeted, before another jokingly added, "That moment in your life when you know you're never gonna make as much money as Alaskan Bush People and it hits hard."

So, how much does the Brown family get paid? 

Well, according to some outlets, Ami and Billy Brown are worth an estimated $500,000 — and each of their kids makes a handsome salary from filming. Rain Brown reportedly receives anywhere from $8,000 to $15,000 per episode while older sister Snowbird makes an estimated salary of $60,000 per year. Just a reminder, Rain and Snowbird are 16 and 24 years old, respectively.
