Drop a camera crew into the Alaskan wilderness and film Billy Brown, his wife Ami, and their seven children as they fight to survive in the bush.

Sounds like a great idea for a reality TV show, right?

Well, Alaskan Bush People has attracted a major fan following, but the Brown family's life in the wild isn't as real as the show makes out.

In fact, fans have poked holes in the family's wild image for years, and we have the scoop.

How isolated are the Brown family from the rest of civilization?

Well, apparently their neighbors live close enough to complain about their camera crew.

The family's neighbor, Jason Hoke, took offense at a camera helicopter that kept buzzing his house while his own family was eating dinner.

Hoke reportedly fired fireworks at the chopper, which lead to the local police being called.

In the end, Hoke was not arrested, but he did get a $500 fine by the FAA - and probably ticked off the Browns.

2. Nice digs

The Browns boast that they built their rural cabin which they built with their own two hands, but they may not actually call the shack their home sweet home.

Locals have spotted the family in and around the Icy Straight Lodge in nearby Hoonah, Alaska while filming the show.

Hoonah is a little out of the way, to be sure, but it's also a prime destination for cruise ships.

And the Lodge is nothing to sneeze at either. It seems the Browns are actually very comfy once the cameras turn off.

When Ami Brown's cancer battle was serious, the family even moved into a luxurious L.A. mansion valued at $2.7 million.

Not bad for some "bush people."

But there are even more secrets about the Browns...
