Alaskan Bush People star Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown is building alongside his siblings on the Brown family mountain but what is Bam building? Sure, he’s erecting a house with lots of windows planned for its southern exposure. But Why?
The real question is, who will occupy the dwelling when and if he completes this project? It probably won’t be Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown anytime soon, he has other plans. Billy Brown’s Alaskan Bush People narration comes off like a proud father with his flock gathering.
Billy boasts how his Alaskan Bush People kids don’t have to build on the mountain. Instead, they’ve made the choice on their own to do so. But maybe Discovery Channel contracts have a bit to do with this as well.
Alaskan Bush People: Part-Time New Yorker Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown Looks for Southern Exposure
While Bam Bam Brown clears some of the land for the start of his build, he shares a few thoughts about the house. But other than the windows soaking in the sun and the view they offer, that’s it so far. Maybe he’s not invested when it comes to his Alaskan Bush People house.
He’s building a house on North Star Ranch with his siblings. He described it as a “forever home”. But the chances of this being a place Bam Brown will truly live don’t look too promising. Is these just staged scenes for Alaskan Bush People with no intent behind them?
Although all the Brown kids – aside from Matt Brown – seem to be planning or actively working on homes on the mountain, only a few truly live there. So, a few of the adult kids won’t make this ranch their home – including Bam Bam Brown. Reportedly, he divides his time between New York and South Carolina.
Along Came Allison Kagan
Bam Bam Brown has a long-time girlfriend, described as his soulmate, who hasn’t shown up on the show as of yet this season. From what reports indicate, fans probably won’t see Allison Kagan on the mountain anytime soon.
Allison once worked as a field producer for the Alaskan Bush People show. That is how Bam met Ali, as he calls her. It’s been reported that doesn’t like how his parents treat Allison. This may be why Bam Bam Brown’s solo on the show with no mention of Ali.
A few years back, Allison and her ABP man bought a ferry boat and are refurbishing it into their home on the water. Those who consider themselves die-hard Bam Bam Brown followers know how much he loves the water. When the vessel is complete, the two plan to set sail.
So, it doesn’t look as if this Alaskan Bush People son plans to live on the mountain. The ferry named “Fathom This” seems to be his dream home with and Allison. Along with plans to ship out to the Bahamas. That’s a far cry from rural Washington.
Alaskan Bush People: Staged Scenes – Bam Bam Won’t Drop Anchor on Mountain?
While filming this season, Bam joined his family on the mountain and talks about his build plan. He’s said he doesn’t want a treehouse, birdhouse, or castle as his sisters and one brother want. But, he may have an equally eccentric home in mind for TV filming purposes.
So once this season ends, where do they go from here? It seems there’s a reason the older son returned to film another season. That is other than building a home that he probably won’t occupy at least in the foreseeable future.
Reportedly, Bam Bam Brown’s still under a Discovery Channel contract so he had to return to the mountain for scenes. But the question as to why he says he’s building a home on the mountain when his plans are to live on the water persists.
But, who knows, maybe his “forever” house will be a vacation home for him and Allison. For now, these home building scenes with Billy and Bam Brown may be just for TV and he won’t build anything since he doesn’t really live on the mountain top ranch with the clan.
New episodes roll out Wednesday nights at 8 pm on the Discovery Channel.
