Just because you’re a famous celebrity doesn’t mean you can’t encounter hardship, disasters, and SHTF. Some movie stars, world-class athletes, and business giants know this and choose to be die-hard survivalists and preppers. Sure, there are plenty of survivalist celebrities out there but the surprising ones are not Bear Grylls or Les Stroud. There are plenty more celebrity preppers that choose to be less outspoken than the ones below.
Maybe it isn’t a surprise that Captain Malcolm Reynolds of the cult classic “Firefly” is a zombie prepper. He also stars on the TV show “Castle”. He went on Conan Tonight and talked about how he is a self-taught welder so he can armor up his SUV for the zombie apocalypse:
Rousey, known for beating faces in the UFC octagon and as an Olympic medalist, is a prepper that lives with her husband on a homestead in Southern California. She may no longer be duking it out in the octagon but she is ready for SHTF. The millions she made in her career could not hurt her chances, and she’s chosen to spend it on a mostly-independent homestead and a lot of goats.
Zooey usually plays the ditsy, fun-loving character in her TV and movie roles but the planning she talks about for disasters shows how sensible she really is. Although it’s highlighted as a unique fact about her, around 4.5% of people in the US claim to be preppers when asked anonymously.
Roseanne, the popular comedian/actress from, well… Roseanne is a very active advocate for prepping. She has tweeted: “In America: be prepared by organizing with your neighbors to grow wholesome food/store water/vitamins/guns.”
She was very critical of former president Obama by stating that he “has no ideas, no plan, and nothing to add other than the cynical pacification of the masses with bedtime stories about hope.”
Jamie Lee Curtis
Curtis is the type of prepper that believes the more people are prepped; the better it is for everyone. She is a Red Cross advocate and has consistently supported them in their mission to teach the importance of preparedness.
It is hard to feel sorry for the fella, but it is pretty lame when you get outed as a prepper when you don’t intend to share that you are prepared for a wide variety of situations. The National Enquirer obviously doesn’t care, and outed Seacrest as a prepper in late 2017. They said he’s hoarding protein bars for an ‘overdue earthquake’, which I’m sure is simplifying his endeavors to make light of them, as they called it a ‘weird obsession’.
Kim Kardashian has a few properties along with her ex-husband Kanye West. Clyde Scott outted her as one of his clients for his bunkers and built one for the couple before they spit. While many of the Hollywood elite and uber-rich are the clientele that invests in bunker solutions, it is odd that he chose to single the couple (at the time) out.
She is the most well-known celebrity prepper on this list with millions of social media fans. She constantly has issues with the paparazzi and stalkers, so it’s not surprising that she would want to keep her family safe from any societal disruption.
Post Malone moved out of LA for a Utah mansion that he has dubbed ‘apocalypse proof’. The singer/songwriter with over 30 awards has always enjoyed castles so it is fitting that he would make one of his own to survive whatever comes up.
The “Circles” and “Sunflower” singer is a down-to-earth guy by most accounts. He will be happy to hole up in his mansion with his supplies and ride out the apocalypse just ‘kicking it’.
Joe Rogan, a comedian, podcast host, and mixed martial arts commentator has let people know he’s into prepping. He has discussed prepping on his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” and advocates self-sufficiency and emergency preparedness. Joe also has spoken about owning firearms and storing food and other supplies. He also says he has an ‘apocalypse vehicle’ and would obviously prefer it over his Tesla:
Mike Rowe, host of the TV show “Dirty Jobs” and an advocate for skilled labor and self-sufficiency, has spoken publicly about his interest in preparedness and survivalism. He has advocated for being self-sufficient and has spoken on his show and in interviews about the importance of having the skills and knowledge to take care of yourself and your family in an emergency.
He is a down-to-earth guy, so it is no surprise that he is a celebrity prepper in his own right.
