Reason Piper and Etienne Kilcher did not appear on the TV show

The Discovery show “Alaska The Last Frontier” follows the homestead life of the Kilcher family as they work hard to sustain a self-sufficient living in Homer, Alaska. Etienne and Piper are the fourth generation Kilchers after their great-grandparents Yule Kilcher and Ruth Weber pioneered their way to Homer, Alaska from Switzerland to escape the tension of the second world war. So, it only makes sense for Etienne and Piper to follow the legacy and appear in the show. Nonetheless, the children did not first appear on the there’s a reason behind it.

Like any other normal parents, Jane and Atz Lee have been protective of their kids and have taken a slow approach. In order to fend off internet trolls associated with fame Jane and Atz Lee kept their children away from the reality show Alaska The Last Frontier. On January 29, 2018, Jane came up with a Facebook post to explain the situation surrounding their kids and why they had not been on the show.

“I’ve been overwhelmed lately of people realizing we have children … that are not on the show… We are so proud of our kids, Piper 14 and Etienne 16, they are not a secret…we just keep their lives private and away from the AWFUL internet trollers ,ETC…but as they get older you may see them (on their own volition ) on an episode or two…. after I have made sure they can deal with all the craziness!!!!”

Once Etienne turned 18 Jane welcomed the idea of him appearing on the television show and left the decision to him. Both the kids have appeared in several episodes of Alaska the last frontier.

In 2022, Etienne left Homer, Alaska to find a career path of his own. He is currently pursuing education at a college in Southern California. With Etienne away from Homestead it is less likely for him to be part of the coming seasons of Alaska the Last Frontier.
