What makes this show different?

Sort of but not really. Bush People is fake. They don't live in the wilderness. They don't even live in Alaska. That remote place where their new home is located is actually on an island with 1500 other residents. They don't even sleep on the island. They stay in a motel in town. Several of the cast just got convicted of falsifying lying on state documents about living in Alaska so they could collect the yearly check Alaskan residents get from oil. The oldest boy was the only one that actually lives in Alaska.

No, I don't watch that shït. My MIL does. I thought it was fake and did a little digging.
I don't watch it now, but I caught a few episodes when it started and they did live in the bush then and then built a home. But when they left the home for a few days bears broke in and ransacked it - they did not build it bear-proof. Considering the family started a business and who knows how much money they make doing the show, is it any wonder they would change their lifestyle to a more comfortable one?

Actually, their first home was in a subdivision with 5 acre plots. There was a pizza place just down the road. Even the episode where someone was "shooting" at them in the middle of the night and "ran them away" from their home was faked. In fact, one of their neighbors who was fed up with them filming the show went outside and fired some fireworks at the helicopter that was hovering above his house filming that episode. If I remember correctly they left that house because so many complaints were filed against them for filming.

Their new wilderness paradise in actually on other side of the same island as the first home.

Don't mean to keep on about it. I just hate scripted and fake "reality" tv. I equate it to fraud.

I will give it to them, the crew is masters at making it look like they are really in the remote wilderness.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
