Filming for the upcoming season of Alaskan Bush People is well underway, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained first photos of drama on set. Click through shocking images of the Brown family fighting the floods that have ravaged the town of Tonasket, Washington, where rising waters caused mandatory evacuations!
According to a production insider, all nine members of the Brown family — including Billy, 65, and wife Ami, 54, as well as their children Matt, 35, Joshua aka "Bam Bam", 33, Bear, 30, Gabe, 28, Noah, 25, Birdy, 23, and Rain, 15 — are at their new property in Washington state filming for season 8 of The Discovery Channel’s hit show.
Prior to purchasing a multi-acre parcel of land in the area, the Brown family was staying in a lakefront lodge in Palmer Lake, which is located in Okanogan County. And although they are far removed from the frigid temperatures of Alaska, they now have a whole new set of weather conditions to endure!
Camera’s rolled as Bam Bam carried sandbags to help residents of Tonasket. “The area has endured significant flooding over the last few weeks and with all nine family members in town, they are helping however they can,” a show insider said.
Even Matt, who went MIA for a while as his mom Ami battled cancer, is back in action. “Several family members have already volunteered. They helped with sandbags in Tonasket, which has been devastated by the floods,” the source told Radar.
“Not only did they help with sandbags, but they also helped an elderly gentleman whose lawn was submerged underwater,” the insider added.
Rain, who has been extremely outspoken on social media, needed a little help from brother Gabe after getting stuck in a tree. The teen star posted this photo on her social media, along with a caption that read, “In a world where you can choose to be anything, choose to be kind.”
“Overall, filming is going well and the family is excited about the progress on their new property,” the source revealed. “It will be a great season with some really amazing triumphs and unexpected challenges.” We pay for juicy info!
