Discovery Channel is home to a variety of reality TV shows ranging from the downright disappointing to the utterly amazing. One of these is the Alaskan Bush People - a show documenting the lives of the Brown family. The show debuted on May 6, 2014, and after 11 seasons, it is still showing no signs of slowing down.
Regardless of the success of the show, however, there are those (read: critics) who could not help but notice glaring irregularities in the show. While there are a lot of things proving that The Last Alaskans is not a sham, it seems that the casts of Alaskan Bush People have a lot of explaining to do.
Nevertheless, the show's stars are earning considerably with every roll of the camera. And to prove that each Brown family member has a fat paycheck, here's how much each cast of Alaskan Bush People is worth.
