Who is Bonnie Dupree?
Bonnie Dupree was born on the 5th February 1954 in Saranac Lake, New York State USA, and is a reality TV star, best known to the world for her appearance in the series “Alaska: The Last Frontier”, alongside her husband Atz Kilcher and the extended Kilcher family. She is Atz Kilcher’s third wife.
Life Before Atz Kilcher
Bonnie grew up in her small village of Saranac Lake, but there are no further details about her early life, such as her parents identity and whether this reality star has any siblings or not, and her education, which may surface in the future.
Bonnie left New York following the end of her education, and moved from state to state with her boyfriend and later husband Doug Schwiesow, eventually settling in Alaska living in a tipi in the wilderness. The two welcomed their children, Hannah, and Karl, who are now all grown up. However, their happiness came to an end, when Doug was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, and died soon afterwards, with Bonnie left alone with her two children and having to find a job to support her children and herself. She soon found herself on the Kilcher farm.
Popularity Through Marriage
Bonnie is Atz Kilcher’s second wife; his first wife was the singer Lenedra Carroll with whom Atz has three children, Jewel, Shane, and Atz Lee Kilcher. The couple divorced in the early ‘80s when he was caught having an affair with a woman named Linda; this liaison gave Atz his fourth child, Nikos Kilcher.
There is no information about the exact date when Bonnie and Atz married. Bonnie and the entire Kilcher family became extremely popular when they were chosen as subjects of the new series “Alaska: The Last Frontier”, which showcases their life in the Alaskan wilderness, living without plumbing, electricity and most modern appliances.

Since the first episode aired on the 29th December 2011, Bonnie has become an extremely popular cast member, and women across the world are idolizing her. Luckily, Bonnie has remained a down to earth hard-working woman, despite fame and fortune. She and Atz don’t have any children together.
