The hit show Alaska: The Last Frontier is back once again, and fans can’t get enough. The fact that Jewel is back in Alaska and on the show with her family makes it even better this season. Now Starcasm is revealing what the stars of Alaska: The Last Frontier are getting paid to do this reality show, and it isn’t small pay either. On Season 6 of Alaska: The Last Frontier the Kilcher family is going to be making big money
First off, the Kilcher family of Alaska: The Last Frontier is worth a lot of money and not just because of their show. If you include the value of the family homestead outside of Homer, AK, they are worth an estimated $16 million dollars. Of course, that number doesn’t even include what Jewel is worth at all.
It turns out that if you are on a reality show and not really famous, then you make about $1,500 per episode or about $19,500 for a standard 13-episode season. That would not be the stars of Alaska: The Last Frontier, though, because they are more popular than that price tag. They aren’t as big as some reality stars like the Kardashians, but someone on a show like Alaska: The Last Frontier makes about $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. That is a pretty good paycheck when you consider that is for every single family member on the show.
The show Alaska: The Last Frontier is huge for Discovery. The Kilchers have a huge fanbase and the fact that that they were able to get Jewel on this season is huge. You can easily assume they probably make this much money per episode of the show. The way that they live, they don’t spend a ton of that money either. It is unknown if they do pay them as a family instead of individually, but if they do that, then they might make even more money.
The Kilcher family is making money in ways other than just their reality show, though. Eivin and Eve just released a cookbook called Homestead Kitchen. You know that they are making great money from this as well. Right now, it doesn’t look like there is any reason that Alaska: The Last Frontier will be ending anytime soon. This income should be enough to get them by for a while, especially if they are being smart with it.
TV Ruckus shared a bit about what you can expect tonight on the new episode of Alaska: The Last Frontier. Jane and Eve actually end up getting stuck out to seas. They are out to catch salmon, and it works out for them, but then they have issues where the engine dies. This is going to leave them stuck out at sea. Atz and Atz Lee will be working on building a new cabin and also fixing things that the earthquake messed up.
As the Inquisitr already shared, Atz Lee is doing a lot better with his health. The fans are glad to see him back on his feet and able to do things. At one time, it looked like he might never be able to live the life on the frontier that he is so used to living.
Are you shocked to see how much you get paid to be on a show like Alaska: The Last Frontier? Do you think that the Kilchers get paid too much? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts, and don’t miss new episodes of Alaska: The Last Frontier on Sunday nights on Discovery. This is going to be a great season with Jewel back with her family again and on the show for the first time.
