Matthew Brown, the eldest of the Alaskan Bush People siblings, has been on fan’s minds ever since he left the show.
He left the Discovery+ series, which follows the Brown family as they live with little electricity in an isolated environment, in season eight.
We explored Matt’s net worth in 2021, and what he’s up to today…

Matthew Brown: Net worth in 2021
Matthew does not currently have much of a net worth. When he was reportedly cut from the show, so was his pay check.
He claimed in an Instagram video posted on April 11, 2021, that he does not have any money, along with “hardly anything to eat”.
Matt alleged: “We made a lot of money off the show, and because my dad controlled everything, all the money went to him.”
He went on to say that the family kept over $300,000 from him, but this is unconfirmed by the Browns themselves.
Will Matt be returning this season?
No, there are no confirmations from Matt or Discovery+ that he could be returning to Alaskan Bush People.
Several fans have questioned the eldest son on whether he attended his father Billy Brown’s funeral, and why he hasn’t returned to his family since.
However, he cut ties from his family several seasons ago.
Since his exit, Matt claimed that production pitched the show to Discovery with a false perception of how the family actually lived their lives.
They allegedly left out that the family had a generator, television, and used electricity occasionally.

Updates on the Alaskan Bush star
Matt has been sharing regular updates with his Instagram followers.
His latest venture is preparing to go up the Chopaka Mountain in Washington, where he will be camping by himself soon.
It appears that Matt is getting ready to move up the mountain for winter.
Another recent project on his page has involved building a sled to use when going up the mountain in winter.
He is now thought to be living alone in the Golden State. As he grew up living with barely any electricity, Matt seems to be used to that lifestyle.
In March 2021, the former Alaskan Bush star said he was one year sober.
