Discovery Channel has yet to announce if Alaskan Bush People Season 8 is really happening. Ami Brown and her family have been documenting their lives for almost four years now. The clan caught the attention of many television viewers around the world after they decided to take themselves off from the higher stage of civilization and chose to live a plain and basic life in the middle of the woods.

The Alaskan Bush People series has been hounded with a lot of controversies since it started airing on May 6, 2014. As a matter of fact, In Touch Weekly previously shared that Ami Brown and her family drew flak after an unnamed source revealed that the clan lives in a hotel when the camera is not rolling. It was claimed that the reality stars were sighted having a good time in Icy Strait Lodge.

There were even reports claiming that Ami Brown and her family did not build the Browntown on their own. A Facebook user stated that the locals of Hoonah, Alaska were the ones who erected the clan's new cabin. Because of this, some followers of the show have speculated that Alaskan Bush People could be fake.

"They are portraying themselves as something that they are not. They do not live in the bush – they only go there to film scenes. They have been living in Hoonah with the Discovery crew. Locals are building their cabin."
"Family is NOT Blood, family is made up of the people who act like family, people who treat you like family, and people who you choose as family; and when people have none of this, then Blood does not make them family…it makes them a Relative."
"Noah was in the parking lot at Beyers Market in Tonasket, Washington, on Tuesday and was showing off his scar from having his gall bladder removed. Right in the parking lot! When a fan went to go shake his hand, he apologized for the weak handshake and told him that it was due to the surgery."

"Discovery Channel's May schedule lists a rotting, sinking boatload of 'new' ABP episodes. Of course, even the new episodes of ABP contain about 90 percent regurgitated content, so take that with a giant pile of salt."
