Matt Brown from "Alaskan Bush People" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Matt Brown broke his first tooth chewing on a beaver rib as his parents, Billy Bryan Brown and Ami Brown, rowed their canoe down a remote river in the bush country of Northern Alaska. From an early age Matt was one of those kids that could make a friend in a matter of minutes and keep them as a friend for life.

Matt started fishing, you could say, at the age of four or five where he would watch the radar and help steer the boat sitting in his das' lap. By the time Matt was ten he was already an avid hunter and fisherman. By thirteen he was as good a first mate as any grown man in the fleet and could read a trail through the deepest forest. Electronics and navigation came easy for him as well. He had grown to love the ocean and had a knack for finding fish. At about ten he started drawing pictures for his das' books and found he had a talent for that as well.

When something breaks on the family boat or around the cabin, it's usually Matt that figures out how to fix it, mainly without the right part or most of the time having to make a part out of something else with which to fit it. The normal way of doing things bores him quickly. He can read Egyptian petroglyphs and Sanskrit. He also has a quick mind for the mechanical.

His personality befits his being a first-born child; he tries to look after everyone else, putting their feelings above his own. He prides himself in being able to solve any problem that he encounters.

Onboard the boat Matt runs the deck. He's first mate to the crew, trusted to keep everyone safe, and he's in charge of all of the gear. While the gear soaks, Matt juggles. He can juggle anything, bouyes, lures — it doesn't matter.

I think everything about this man is exceptional. I love everything about his way of life, I love hunting, fishing and the wilderness. If only I were younger.

Who is he dating? What do you think of him?
