Season 14 has featured several storylines thus far, but Noah, Rain, and Bird’s trip to Alaska has been a main focus. The latest episode, titled “No Sleep Till Petersburg,” follows the family on a boat trip to a town where a beautiful piece of land is being sold to the highest bidder. Even though there are a few technical difficulties, the siblings take the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery. However, this is “Alaskan Bush People,” so things can only be serene for so long. As they’re setting up crab traps, Bird decides to do a little something special for good luck and bites the head off of a dead fish to use as bait. Even as her sister gags beside her, Bird continues munching on fish heads until the traps are full.
Fans of the series were caught between amusement and disgust. “Umm… they surely have knives,” wrote Twitter user @Delta61556942, while another user simply said, “Eww.” On the other hand, some viewers couldn’t help but appreciate the scene for its comedic value. “I liked the look of horror on your nephew’s face when you did that,” said Twitter user @LittleGirlShine, pointing out that Noah’s son clearly enjoyed his aunt’s antics. “Later that evening: YO BIRDY OPEN UP THIS CANNED MEAT,” joked user @ogmadslick4. Even though the moment was pretty gross, Bird’s unorthodox skills have definitely served her well in the Alaskan wilderness.
