Becky Broderick On Life Below Zero: Northern Territories
National Geographic’s Life Below Zero: Northern Territories returned for its second installment in June 2022, and as always it saw 5 faces including its retuning star Becky Broderick, ready for a brand new adventure in the freezing temperature of the Northwest Territories in Canada.
On the show, Becky was often spotted with her collection of sled dogs and pieces of bait fish, all just to provide a warm meal for her family. But it wasn’t just a “meal” that Becky wanted. In the previous season, we’ve seen her craving for animals like Musk Ox, and we’re sure, this season, her craving will even be greater. Meaning, more adventures for us to see.
Furthermore, Becky wasn’t even afraid to take her infant with her to care for her dogs, and this was just the kind of courage the viewers had signed up for. However, she did face some backlash for raising her daughter in the north, but the ones who praised her for it labeled her “the Sue Aikens of Canada”
This survival expert once also had a chat with the Life Below Zero icon Susan Aikens where they talked about breaking gender stereotypes, managing fame, and their close encounters with death.
Joining Becky for the second season of Life Below Zero: Northern Territories were her co-stars Bentley Kakekayash, “Pike” Mike Harrison, Kim Pasche, and Pierre-Yves Duc
The last we checked, Becky had already graced over 16 episodes of Life Below Zero.
Did you know: Becky’s sled dogs, Sadie (black and white, blue eyes) and Max (brown) retired in 2019. She was looking for a new home for her retired dogs then.

Becky Broderick Spouse
Becky Broderick worked hard, and it was for her spouse Dene Dzen, and their daughter Thi (born in 2018). This survival expert married Dene back in January 2016, even before they could celebrate their first dating anniversary i.e. on September 3, 2016.
Talking more about her husband, Dene Dzen’s real name could be Jake Basil. He did his schooling up to Grade 11 in Lutselk’e and did grade 12 in Yellowknife. After graduating and feeling like he was disconnecting from his homeland, living in Whitehorse, Dene and Becky then moved back to Lutselk’e.
According to Becky, it was also because she wanted to raise her daughter to be “a self-sufficient badass” that she chose to come back to Lutselk’e. But the hardest thing about living there was darkness. “It’s dark all the time. So I had to learn to do everything in the dark. Get water in the dark. Chop wood in the dark. Travel in the dark,” she explained.
