Allison Kagan is not only Joshua Bam-Bam Brown’s long-time girlfriend, but she’s also a director and producer on Alaskan Bush People. That’s where the two are rumored to have met.
Alaskan Bush People premiered on the Discovery Channel on May 6, 2014. It was once filmed in Alaska, but these days, the show is shot on location in Okanogan County, Washington.
Brown and Kagan have been dating for a few years now, and seem to be smitten with one another, although they certainly keep the details of their relationship under wraps. The Sun quotes Brown as saying on the Discovery series that he fell “head over heels” for Kagan, and she “stirred something inside me and made my soul wake up.”
