So, is Alaskan Bush People scripted? Find out everything we know here!

Is 'Alaskan Bush People' scripted?

Although Alaskan Bush People markets itself as an unscripted reality show, the series has faced a lot of criticism over the years for being fake or scripted. I mean, can you blame them? 

Billy Brown, the patriarch of the family, once denied the rumors that the show isn't legit, however. "What can you say to people like that?" he told Radar Online. "We call them ‘bobs in the basement.’ That’s just what we call the people who sit behind the computers and don’t have a life. I actually feel sorry for those people when they don’t have anything else to do."
