Alaska The Last Frontier Families Net Worth
When the Discovery Channel went looking for a real-life Alaska The Last Frontier Family for a new Reality Show, they couldn’t have picked a better Family than the Kilcher Homestead located outside of Homer, Alaska. The Kilcher’s Homestead dates back to 1936 when Yule and Ruth Kilcher immigrated from Switzerland to Alaska with a dream and 600 acres of raw, untamed land. Together they had eight children including Atz and Otto, who are now Reality Stars on The Alaskan Frontier Show.
The Kilcher Family’s lifestyle was exactly what the producers of Alaskan Frontier was searching for but what they didn’t know was one of the clan was already a Celebrity Star and Famous Musician. It seems some people believe the Kilcher’s got the part on Alaskan The Last Frontier because of Atz’s famous daughter and songwriter is known as “Jewel.” The fact is, the producers had no idea Jewel was a Kilcher and raised on the same Homestead featured in the Show.
Jewel wrote a fascinating article what it was like growing up on the Kilcher Homestead deep in the Alaskan Bush. Did you know the entire town of Homer, Alaska, helped raise money for Jewel to go to college before becoming a world famous singer/ songwriter? While she chooses not to be on the Reality Show, Jewel and her Dad, Atz, wrote and sang the Alaska The Last Frontier theme song.
Atz Kilcher’s Net Worth
Atz Kilcher was born and raised in Homer, Alaska his entire life. Reading about Atz’s childhood growing up with seven sibling’s almost magically takes you back in time to a simpler, but a harder working lifestyle. Atz, and his brother Otto lived their entire lives Homesteading the same land their parents acquired when they came to Alaska. Growing up in the middle of nowhere with no close neighbors in sight, the Kilcher’s kept themselves entertained singing songs and telling stories.
Atz’s love for telling stories in the form of songs evolved into four successful albums so far recorded. Atz’s artwork made on the Homestead is also becoming highly collectible and certainly helping add to his net worth. Did you know Atz also performs weddings on the Kilcher Homestead when not filming for The Alaskan Frontier Show? Atz Kilcher’s Net Worth along with his wife Bonnie Dupree estimated over $7 million including the Family’s priceless Alaskan Homestead.
Otto Kilcher’s Net Worth
Otto Kilcher is a master fixing just about anything imaginable on the Alaskan Frontier Homestead. If Otto can’t fix it, no problem, he’ll just improvise and create a new gadget that will work just fine. Otto and his wife Charlotte Kilcher got married and lived together on the homestead for over 20 years. One of their primary sources of income is from the cattle they raise and protect on their piece of the Alaskan Frontier Homestead.
Although Otto and Charlotte don’t have time for posting on FaceBook or anywhere on the internet, they do have a significant following of Fans interested in their unique lifestyle. You just never know what the heck Otto will create seemingly out of nothing. Otto and Charlotte Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated at $5 million. If you ask Otto, He’d probably say his pile of “stuff” is worth a million bucks alone.
Eivin and Eve Kilcher’s Net Worth
Eivin Kilcher is Otto’s oldest son who married Alaskan Native Eve Kilcher. Together they just had a son, Findlay, who’s helping start the fourth generation of Kilcher’s living near Homer, Alaska. Elvin, just like his dad Otto, has a unique way of fixing and building just about anything around the homestead. The new couple chose to start a Family much like Yule Kilcher did when first moving to Alaska. With a plot of untouched land a half a mile from Otto and Charlotte’s property, Elvin and Eve are slowly building their piece of paradise in The Alaskan Frontier. Elvin and Eve Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated over $2 million since becoming “real” Reality TV Stars.
Atz Lee and Jane Kilcher’s Net Worth
Atz Lee Kilcher and his native Alaskan wife, Jane, live a substance lifestyle mostly from hunting and fishing in Alaska The Last Frontier. While growing up in a musical family his entire life, Atz Lee, Jewel’s little brother, also has a gift for performing on stage. Watch some of Atz Lee’s videos on You-Tube performing on stage. O.K., maybe it’s best leaving the singing part to his big sister, Jewel.
When it comes to hunting and surviving in the Alaskan Bush, everyone can learn from Atz Lee Jr. Perhaps it’s because he takes the time explaining outdoor survival skills to his wife Janey, and to the growing audience watching Alaska The Last Frontier. Atz Lee doesn’t have time for the Internet, but his wife Jane frequently posts on FaceBook with over 40,000 Followers. Atz Lee and Jane Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated at $2+ million with very few monthly bills living on the Family Homestead.
Jewel Kilcher’s Net Worth
Jewel is the most famous Kelcher that’s not on the Alaska The Last Frontier Reality Show. When you see her nowadays, you’d never guess Jewel grew up on an Alaskan Homestead with no running lights or electricity. She might be a famous musician known around the world, but it’s easy to see Jewel’s still very close to the entire Kilcher Family in Homer, Alaska. Watching the famous singer getting picked on by her younger brother Atz Lee, shows how “real” the Alaska The Last Frontier Reality Show is in real life. Maybe, just maybe someday Jewel will make a guest appearance on Alaska The Last Frontier that would certainly rank high in the TV Ratings.
Like many episodes of Alaska The Last Frontier seen over the past few years, I never had any idea Jewel is part of the Kilcher Family until researching for this article. It makes you wonder how many more Fans this Show would attract if more people knew Jewel is Atz Lee’s Sister? Jewel Kilcher’s Net Worth is over $40 million, so it’ll take something more than just money for an appearance on the Show. Perhaps a challenge from Atz Lee to go Bear Hunting with his Famous Sister and see if she’s still up to the challenge after becoming rich and famous? Now that would be “priceless” watching Jewel spending time on Alaska The Last Frontier.
