‘Alaskan Bush People’: Matt Brown Takes on Dare with Eyes Wide Open

Alaskan Bush People star Matt Brown learned a few new skills for self-entertainment these days, along with posting photos while doing so. Matt is one of the Alaskan Bush People children but he is no kid. He’s the oldest child of this wilderness family at 37-years-old.

While Matt hasn’t appeared on the Alaskan Bush People so far this season, he’s back in the good graces with his family. According to reports, Matt extended an olive branch to his father, Billy Brown. In turn, his dad welcomed him back onto the Northstar Ranch.

Alaskan Bush People: Matt Brown Just a Memory On the Show?

It seems Matt Brown is almost forgotten this season as his name is seldom mentioned on Alaskan Bush People. Although Rain Brown did mention him when talking about the stinky foot contest they once had. Feet came up when Rain got the task of giving Gabe Brown a pedicure before his mountain wedding.

So while Matt Brown might be on the back burner, it looks like his feet come through like a memory. Matt Brown and his siblings learned at an early age how to live in the wilderness by surviving on only the things Mother Nature provides.

Through the seasons of Alaskan Bush People, the siblings enjoyed playtime even as grown adults. While they’d get together to hunt and fish, they’d also play in the mud or participate in odd games they’d concoct in the bush.

Playtime – Out With the Old and In With the New

So it looks like that playtime still exists for Matt Brown whether he’s in the wilderness or not. It seems Matt is going to need something to do before returning to Alaskan Bush People. As he’s got a long wait according to reports.

The patriarch of the Brown family agreed to Matt Brown coming back to the show. But reports put that happening next season. So it looks like Matt has some time to waste before he’s gainfully employed by the Discovery Channel again.

The eldest son’s online post has to do with a dare. This dare also includes using an app. He introduced this new trend to his Alaskan Bush People followers.

The rules are pretty simple, you just count the amount of time that goes by while you don’t blink your eyes. So, you keep your eyes wide open for as long you can without blinking. Then you get online and reveal your results.

Alaskan Bush People: No Blinking For How Many Minutes?

As you’d expect, Matt found takers. His followers hopped online to share the amount of time they were able to keep their eyes open without interrupting this with a blink.

It’s not known just what Matt is doing these days while the rest of the family appears on Alaskan Bush People.

It appears Ami Brown and Billy Brown prepared their kids to live in the wilderness. Most of the time when you get a glimpse of Matt Brown working, it’s been at the family homestead in Alaska.

So did Billy and Ami prepare their kids for jobs in the real world? They did encourage them to be creative. As far as the dare goes, Matt’s time seems pretty impressive.

It appears that Matt Brown can keep his eyes open for 397.0 seconds without blinking. That’s approximately six and a half minutes if you do the math.

New episodes of Alaskan Bush People air on Wednesday nights at 8 pm EST.
