‘Alaskan Bush People’: Bear Brown Speaks Out on Whether He’d Do His Own Show

by Jon D. B.

Fans curious as to whether Bear Brown would ever leave ‘Alaskan Bush People’ for his own show now have their answer – courtesy of the “King of Extreme” himself.

Want to ask Bear Brown a question? Quick, head to Instagram! The ‘Alaskan Bush People’ star has put up his own Q&A for followers on the social media platform Monday. The prompt? “Ask me a question!!!”

Simple. We like it! He’s been good to his word so far, too, as Bear Brown has been answering replies for several hours now. One of the top questions comes from follower sharp589, who asks:

“Hi! Have you ever thought about having your own show?” the fan asks. “And if yes, what would it be like? Maybe you and Matt ’cause he is so funny!”

It’s a common question for fans of ‘Alaskan Bush People’s breakout star. And as it turns out, Bear himself says this isn’t the first time the topic has come up:

“I’ve been asked that before!” Bear replies. “It’d be cool to explore all the extreme and cool places in the world!”

His answer shouldn’t come as a shock to ‘Alaskan Bush People’ fans. Firstly, Bear is, after all, the self-professed “King of Extreme.” Exploring “extreme” locations would be perfectly on-brand for the wild man. Secondly, Outsider would argue that Bear is, without a doubt, the second-most popular star of the hit Discovery show – only behind his late father, Billy Brown.

Would Bear Brown Ever Leave ‘Alaskan Bush People’?

Chances are, however, that Bear will continue to lead ‘Alaskan Bush People’ alongside his siblings. With their patriarch gone, Discovery needs big personalities like Bear’s for the show now more than ever.

And if you’re curious as to why Bear’s Instagram post isn’t embedded here, there’s a simple answer for that. Outsiders will know – as we cover the Brown family often – that Bear’s Instagram is set to max privacy settings. No embedding allowed! As such, if you want to see his posts for yourself, you can follow Bear Brown on Instagram here. Be warned, however, that the star has become fond of posting photos of his six-pack abs.

Honestly, we’re not sure exactly who that deters – but consider the warning made.

While an odd fellow at times, Bear is a great ambassador for the show. Even when answering thorny questions from followers during the same Q&A, the young man replies with a level-head. And despite all the flack the show gets, Bear remains a positive voice and kind soul for viewers of the show. When it comes to television and/or celebrities, should we ask for more than that?
