Early Life: Growing up in Alaska

Eivin was raised in his birthplace by his survival expert father Otto Kilcher, and his stepmother Charlotte Kilcher who also stars on the show, while his biological mother is Sharon Mackie, Otto’s second wife. He has two younger siblings, Atz Lee Kilcher and Jane Kilcher. Growing up in Homer, a relatively new settlement that his grandfather pioneered in populating, from an early age Eivin was used to performing all sorts of daily tasks in order to have a relatively normal life, something most people don’t have to experience because they live in a modern well-supplied environment. However, without any plumbing whatsoever, among other deficiences, Eivin was from the start used to doing what he had to do to survive, although Homer isn’t as harsh as the wilderness they survive off in the series. His father taught him all the skills that he needed to become a fully-fledged survival expert in his mid-teens. As for his education, it is known that he attended Homer High School, from where he matriculated in 2001. He didn’t pursue a college education.

Career: On the Big Screen

Eivin never had a job outside of his household, and once the contract with the Discovery Channel was made, he didn’t need one. The first episode of “Alaska: The Last Frontier” appeared on the TV screen on the 29th of December 2011. The first season contained only three episodes, however, it was a big success, and the next season had 15 episodes, starting on the 2nd of October 2012 and ending in June 2013. The third season had 23 episodes and aired from October 2014, while all of the subsequent four seasons have 20 episodes each. The show is still ongoing and the eighth season is in the making, with season 7 having ended on the 12th of February 2018. At the moment, the episodes are approximately 45 minutes long.

In the show, the family is situated in a house located 18 miles away from Homer. Eivin is an irreplaceable technology pundit, as well as an all-around contributor to the household. He hunts for food by fishing or shooting, he tends to the crops, he gathers edible plants and he fixes the family’s few machines when there’s a malfunction.

Love Life: Married to Eve Kilcher

As for Eivin’s romantic involvements, it is known that he spent his childhood growing up with Eve on a farm in Homer, and that they attended high school together. Having started their relationship quite early, they didn’t marry until in a private ceremony in August 2011, and have since produced a son named Findlay Farenorth Kilcher and a daughter named Sparrow Rose Kilcher. Together, they wrote the book entitled “Homestead Kitchen – Stories and Recipes from Our Health to Yours.” They live along with the rest of the Kilcher family, and Eve is quite active in front of the camera as well. There hasn’t been any controversy surrounding their union.

Rumors About the Show

It was alleged at an unspecified point in time that Shane Kilcher and Kelli Kilcher were close to leaving the show permanently, which caused unrest among a large number of fans. However, this turned out to be false. There is also speculation as to whether the family is actually in the wilderness all the time, or whether the entire impression they’re trying to leave is based on fake information, suggesting that they may not frequent the wilderness as they’d like their fans to think. However, this is also yet to be proved, and it is thus considered just speculation.
