‘Alaskan Bush People’: Noah Brown’s Personal Hygiene Questioned by Wife Rhain

Alaskan Bush People star Noah Brown still talks about growing up in the bush where baths just didn’t exist so bathing was improvised. Now with a wife (Rhain Alisha Brown) and new baby son he’s working hard at getting his mountain home ready for the day they can move in.

While bathing may not be a concern for Noah, Rhain Brown makes it clear it is for her. This new wife joining the Alaskan Bush People needs more than a bucket of water from the stream to clean up. It look as if Rhain gently reminds her husband Noah Brown that he does too.

Alaskan Bush People: Noah Brown Amps It Up for Rhain Alisha Brown

Besides the rather lop-sided attempt at bear-proofing his tent for safety, Noah Brown attempts to give his little family more space. So he builds an addition. Another room the size of the original tent goes up next to his Alaskan Bush People dwelling. Instead of canvas, Noah constructs this addition with wood.

It looks like Noah Brown has it all figured out. The new dad makes it small enough to fly under the radar of the zoning rules. But if it this house was just for him, walls and a roof would be enough for Noah Brown. Except it’s not, the dwelling is for his wife Rhain Brown and son, Elijah Brown.

While Rhain tells the Alaskan Bush People camera that even though she’s now a bush woman she still needs water. Noah seems to understand this and designs an outside shower with a water heater for his wife.

Shower for Two – It Sounds Like That Won’t Happen

Since this is a reality show, you don’t know how much of what you see and hear is added on for drama. With the shower almost done, Rhain Brown attempts to address Noah’s lack of bathing.

She tries to entice her Alaskan Bush People husband into taking a shower at least once a week. That doesn’t seem to fly with Noah Brown.

The new papa makes a reference to only bathing on Saturday night. For that, he uses just the amount H20 that a water bottle holds. He tells Rhain that’s fine for him.

In the past, the siblings from the Alaskan Bush People demonstrated their bathing rituals on the show. They use a shampoo made with stuff found on the forest floor. Bear Brown once gave a demonstration that looks like it left him dirtier than when he started his bathing ritual.

Alaskan Bush People: Don’t Get Down Wind?

It’s not known if Rhain was hinting at romance when mentioning her Alaskan Bush People hubby that he might want to attempt a shower. Or if Rhain Brown’s nose told her Noah Brown may need more than a weekly splash of water.

But in last week’s episode, you see Bear Brown moving in for a hug with Noah. But Bear quickly stops and waves his hands before the hug takes place.

It looks as if he attempts to wave away the air. He motions his hands like someone might do when attempting to clear the room from an evasive odor. That was short-lived as the two brothers quickly jump into a conversation about Noah’s gall bladder. He had Bear’s ear with how the doctors took it out through his belly button.

Then they hugged it out like brothers. Still, Noah seems to think that washing up in a stream once a week is still good hygiene for him today.

Even though the shower wasn’t ready yet, Rhain Brown was already trying to get Noah Brown used to the idea of taking a shower. Rhain also tells the Alaskan Bush People cameras that this is something she can’t do without for herself.

Alaskan Bush People went from their traditional Sunday night time slot to Wednesday nights on the Discovery Channel. A new season rolled out a few weeks ago. New episodes air on Wednesday nights at 8 pm EST.
