Life Below Zero: Port Protection, is a spin-off or technically a continuation of Port Protection Alaska, a NatGeo series that first premiered in 2015 and has aired ever since in several installments. The executive producer, Joseph Litzinger, promised the show will be a fresh take on the much loved first season, with an added Life Below Zero edge.
Now, with the being said, let us take you through a tell-all about one of its cast members, Stuart Andrews,
Is Stuart Andrews Still On Port Protection?
Yes. Stuart Andrews is still on Port Protection for a 2022 season.
For the first time, Stuart was specially thanked for the first episode of “Out of Luck’ of the TV series in 2015. Then between that year and 2021, he rather started making recurring appearances. He did a total of 13 episodes as of 2021.
So, Stuart, as we see in Port Protection is a fisherman who takes pride in doing things his way. Viewers have also witnessed Stuart’s entrepreneurial streak run strong.
When he is not hiring out his fishing vessel, the Donna Mae, or making resupply runs for the community, he’s looking for ways to better himself.
Given the place he inhabits in, fans however have been a bit worried for him because of his laid-back attitude. And in past few years, as Stuart puts in a recent Port Protection episode, his hands have taken it hard and he is slowly losing his abilities to be out there fishing, hunting, and shrimping. “Old man disease gets us all”, David Squibb, who stands next to him, says his voice filled with pure empathy. Looking at David, Stuart then says to the camera “It’s always good to have somebody around to help at.”
David has been living in Port Protection for more than 17 years.
Joining Stuart and David in the new season are OGs of the show Mary Miller, Timothy “Curly” Leech, Matt Carlson, Sam Carlson, and newcomers Morgan Turcott and Carl Hernandez. The rest, Breanna Miethe, and Oliver Johnson are not as much of newbies.
So far in this journey of the Alaskan wilderness, the show also lost some of its truest gems.
One of them is Gary Muehlberger who breathed his last year back in March 2021. He was no stranger to ultimate survival and had been thriving out in the wild in Alaska for more than 39 years.
Stuart Andrews Age
The year 2021 turned Stuart Andrew into 56 years old.
Stuart Andrews Net Worth
Stuart Andrews reportedly acquired almost $200K as net worth as of March 2022.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for the year 2017, had reported that the commercial fisherman pay was $28,530/year on average. The figure may have been different over a couple of years but one thing that is always true for Alaskan fishing jobs is that it pays well considering its nature of toughness.
Anyway, Stewart’s most recent ventures have been seaweed and oyster farming. (Of course) he also served as Port Protection’s volunteer Fire Chief. So, you can say Stuart is the fire chief of the Point Baker Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department. (The fire department is located on the northern tip of Prince of Whales Island in Southeast Alaska and it boasts 4 firefighters and 2 EMS personnel.)
Now, let us give you a hint on how much Stuart made in cheques for his appearance on the National Geographic show.
Reportedly, the Life Below Zero cast member Sue Aiken got paid $4,500 per episode and $200,000 per year to star in the show. Another alum Glenn Villeneuve was also said to make $200,000 a year.
So, Stuart also must have been paid alike to these co-stars.
