Alaska: The Last Frontier is loved by many. The way the Kilcher family lives outside of Homer, Alaska, surviving harsh weather conditions and running a home without essential modern appliances is simply fascinating and something many people have never tried, let alone tried for a short time. Atz Lee Kilcher is the son of the series’ main character and a familiar face to those watching the series on the Discovery Channel. He is also an interesting character that anyone who has heard of the show would love to see.
Born on August 26, 1977, in Alaska, the USA as the son of Atz Kilcher and Leandra Carroll, Atz Lee Kilcher is an American actor and reality show star, known for the reality TV show Alaska: The Last Frontier, in which he starred. The show tells how he and his family manage to survive without the basic comforts of life.
He grew up on the homestead and played guitar all over the country. Music runs in the Kilcher family, and Atz Lee is no exception to this gift. He spent a lot of time playing and enjoying music before heading back to Alaska. He can perform well on stage, although he has chosen to live in the wilderness to meet the needs of the family.
Atz Lee has always considered himself the black sheep of the family. Two decades ago he left the subsistence life on the homestead in search of a bigger and better life in a modern dwelling. His grandfather Yule in his own time followed this path when he left for Europe at a young age. With his great passion for music, Atz Lee roamed the country with his guitar, playing music and making friends.
The day came when it finally dawned on him that the homestead where he had grown up was really the last frontier, he could relate more to it than to what he longed for in an urban world. So he retraced his steps back to his homestead, built a hut by hand and has not walked since.
Not much is known about his education and other things that affect his life. Atz Lee is all about the show that made him popular and people have often wondered if he has a life outside the reality TV show at all.
Atz Lee Kilcher’s family, wife, son, children,
The family of Atz Lee Kilcher is large with many interesting personalities as family members. They all have one thing or another that keeps them in the limelight and that makes it all the more interesting to learn about them.
The celebrity family consists of Kilcher’s parents; Atz Kilcher and Lenedra Carroll Kilcher as his father and mother respectively. His uncle Otto Kilcher, who is also on the show, lives on the same estate with his wife and children. The Kilcher’s kept the famous singer Jewel Kilcher away from the public as a family member for a long time, until she was accidentally seen in an episode. Atz Lee also has a brother named Shane Kilcher.
Atz Lee Kilcher is married to Jane Kilcher, who is originally from Homer and in fact, lived not too far from Homestead. She was a professional fisherman before she met Atz through their shared love of music. She left fishing and moved to the Homestead to be with Atz. Their marriage produced two children; a son named Etienne and a daughter named Piper.
Atz keeps the lives of Etienne and Piper private and rarely shows them in the reality TV series. According to his wife, the reason for this is that the children are too young and can’t cope with the negative trolls that the audience sometimes gives them and she has also revealed that her son Piper is not willing to appear on the reality show. But this will probably be the case in the future.
There were rumors of a divorce between Atz and Jane in early 2017, and the rumor sellers described Jane only as a ‘bed warmer’ for Atz. Such rumors are typical for the many negative trolls the celebrity family gets. However, Jane has raised this issue in a long Facebook post. She described her husband in a positive way and made it clear that although they have problems, it certainly doesn’t point to divorce.
