Gabe’s Thunder Thighs on Alaskan Bush People
In the exclusive clip below, Gabe asks Bam Bam and Rain what he should do. He says: “So, what do you think you want me to scale up this bad boy?”
Bam Bam says: “The easiest thing to do would be to get Noah’s poles off. There’s no reason to climb up there and try to hang on with your legs while you’re sawing.”
Assessing the task, Gabe adds: “Yeah, I can’t do that. I don’t have the leg muscles.”
Rain delivers the blow. She says: “You got them thunder thighs.”
Wounded and slightly fat-shamed, Gabe is back on his heels. He says: “Hey, that’s not a good thing.”
Rain debates that thunder thighs means muscular while Gabe counters with flabby thighs, and Bam Bam is completely out of the jargon loop. He says: “I’m not sure I’ve ever heard that expression before, so I don’t know…at this point, y’all could just be totally making this up.”
The new season of Alaskan Bush People
Following a devastating wildfire that swept through North Star Ranch last year, the Browns are back to assess the destruction.
Their father, Billy, inspires big, new adventures to keep their dream alive, including mining for gold and a voyage back to Alaska. In the weeks before the wildfire, the Brown family finds gold mine entrances on unexplored areas of their land, as Bird, Rain, and Bear explore more than 70 feet below ground.
Following the wildfire that swept through the mountain, the Wolfpack returns to their homestead for decisions to be made and to decide if the dream they’ve been building in Washington is worth it anymore.
But some of the Browns struggle and long for life back in Alaska.
As life is unpredictable and cruel timing, a sudden seizure takes the patriarch on February 7, 2021. Billy Brown was only 68 years old.
Now, the Brown family is dedicating this season to Billy Brown. The network said in a statement: “He was a trailblazer, and the family will strive to keep his dreams and sense of adventure alive for generations to come.”
Billy was the North Star to the wolfpack. He was a father, a husband, and a hero, and his loss created a seismic shift in the Brown family as they questioned the will to carry on. The dream Billy fought so hard to achieve is now in limbo.
