Denise Becker On Life Below Zero
We know Denise Becker from ‘Life Below Zero’ accompanying her partner Andy Bassich as they spend their time in Alaska. The couple lives together with their 16 huskies. National Geographic show documents their lives in the “below zero” temperature and their preparations to survive the cold as it escalates.
When Denise appeared on the show, she assured viewers that she was more than equipped to be in the cold Alaskan environment. She explained to the viewers that she grew up in Canada and had done some hard works during that time. Denise shared, “My family homesteaded up in northern Saskatchewan, a farm, which is still an active, hardworking farm. Calico Bluff is full of work, full of great work. Real work that counts at the end of the day.”
She harvests vegetables in their garden but the show didn’t hit the television in 2021.
Is Denise Becker Still With Andy Bassich?
Before we get to the question, let’s explore their relationship history. Denise and Andy met each other in 2017 while on a canoe trip in Florida. At the time Denise was escorting a Boy Scout troop on a canoe excursion. They got close after that but when Andy endured two infections, one in the muscle and one in the bone, it was then the pair got to spend a lot of time together.
Andy never thought that he would return to the unforgiving harsh climate of Alaska without a partner but with Denise by his side, he was able to bring himself to do that again. Andy explained, “If I didn’t have a partner to help me, there’s no way I could’ve come back here and accomplished what I need to do.”
He added further, “The big thing I’ve got to keep in mind is that I always try to do too much. I’ve got to make sure I don’t do something to hurt myself worse… Right now I just have to downsize my expectations a little bit.”
Before Denise, Andy was married to his ex-wife Kate Rourke. They met each other while Andy was working as a riverboat captain in Alaska in 2003 where Kate had arrived as a tourist. However, the couple divorced in 2015, the reason Andy is a psychologically and physically violent husband. They never had any kids together.
Back to the question are Denise and Andy still together?
There are no tell-tell signs that hint of them being separating. But, on Denise’s Facebook one of her follower named Nancy Yackle had asked, “I hope all is well for you, Andy, and your dogs during the breakup.” Whether it was about them not appearing on the show or breaking up with each other, it remained unclear because Denise never replied.
So, they might still be together considering Andy’s health condition.
