Although the series is dramatic on its own rights, the most dramatic thing happened when the cameras weren't rolling.
The show took a dramatic turn recently with matriarch Ami Brown’s cancer, but fans were wondering about another member of the Brown family.
According to eCelebrity Facts, Matt Brown was MIA from Alaskan Bush People for a good few episodes, but things are now cleared.
The same outlet revealed that the most hardcore part of the show's fanbase already knows that Brown had a serious accident in his homestead in March.
According to People, Matt was injured and was evacuated out of Alaska after being in an explosion in the family homestead.
The 34-year-old was alone in Brownton, approximately two months ago, when an explosion raised red flags for the show’s production team, who went gone home for the day hours earlier.
“We got a medic on the way. We’re on the way right now,” a production member is heard saying on the latest episode of Alaskan Bush People.
According to TMZ, Brown was injured after an improvised bear deterrent exploded in his fridge, as he reportedly mixed several hazardous components.
He supposedly mixed gunpowder and cannon fuse in a mason jar and placed it in his refrigerator. In the explosion, the refrigerator door flew off its hinges and hit Matt on the head.
He is currently recovering from his terrifying accident, but he had to get nine stitches on his head and was in an intensive care unit for a few days.
In Southern California, the rest of the family expresses concern for Matt, who revealed he’d entered rehab for alcohol abuse in 2016.
