'Swamp People': Who's Ready To Fight Two Gators At Once?

It's a dangerous enough job when hunting one alligator at a time. On the latest " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History), Austyn and Blake were startled to find two alligators hooked on the lines on one tree. That comes to about 1,000 pounds of thrashing teeth and muscle. The line wasn't prepared to handle that kind of strain, threatening to break, and the guys weren't quite sure at first what their best approach was as the two behemoths were flailing about against one another, creating even more potential for uncertainty and injury. Finally, they managed to shoot one of the creatures, which made taking out the other one a matter of routine, albeit still incredibly dangerous. Still, for all the drama, getting two gators for the price of one is surely worth it every time. Follow "Swamp People" every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on History.

'Swamp People': R.J. Wants To Catch 50 Gators For His 50th Birthday

The 50th birthday is certainly a big one, but most people settle for a memorable trip or a big party. R.J. Molinere Jr. challenged himself to catch 50 alligators on his 50th birthday on the latest episode of " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History). It was a lofty challenge, especially when considering that each gator is a dangerous beast that could kill him with one snap of its jaws. It's hard to stay poised and on one's toes for the length of time that such an ambitious goal requires, and R.J. did indeed get lax in his concentration. At one point, he put his foot on the side of the boat, and quickly had a gator snap onto his toes. Luckily, he was wearing steel-toed boots, but it was a sobering reminder to stay -- ahem -- on his toes. They made it to 49 alligators, so Jay Paul got him a gator cake to make number 50. It's that mixture of danger and heart that has turned "Swamp People" into an unparalleled success. As pointed out on the Miami Herald, History's reality series is drawing more viewers than " Community " or " 30 Rock " and besting the entire NBC lineup in the coveted 18-49 demographic, and it absolutely kills in the young male demo. The runaway success of "Swamp People" continues Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on History.

'Swamp People' Save An Orphaned Fawn

Most of the time on " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History), the drama comes from hunting and killing dangerous prey like alligators. But this week, a softer side as Jay Paul came upon a weakened fawn. He speculated that it had been orphaned in a recent tropical storm. "When I got to it, I could see it was skin and bones, probably hadn’t eaten in a couple of days. He’s helpless," Paul said. "If he dies, at least I know I tried. But if I leave him out here, he’s just gonna die." Ultimately, he took the fawn to a game warden where it would have its best chance of survival. In the wild, it had no chance at all. Keep up with all the excitement on "Swamp People," Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on History.

'Swamp People' Catch Boatload Of Gators During Feeding Frenzy

Alligator hunters had a bumper catch on " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) Thursday night. The local gators were so busy gorging themselves before a huge storm hit that the hunters made out like bandits during the feeding franzy. Two hunters alone caught 35 gators, including a massive 800-lber. While the mass carnage may not have been to everyone's tastes, " Real Housewives " star Kim Zolciak tweeted her love for the show. Could she be gunning for her own swamp-set spin-off show? "Swamp People" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on History.

Monster Gator Loose In Troy's Yard On 'Swamp People'

When the swamp is in one's backyard, it's too for of a stretch to expect alligators to make it their home as well from time to time. But it's no less frightening when one is encountered so close, as Troy found out the hard way on " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. EST on History). The gator was none too happy to be disturbed, but they were none too happy to have the uninvited guest. And getting rid of a pest like an alligator is a far more dangerous task than fending off raccoons or squirrels. This job took Troy, his two sons, plenty of equipment and a loaded shotgun. And still, the gator was nearly getting the best of them. The beast is at home in the swamps, while they were stuck on their boats and incredibly wary of those sharp teeth and powerful jaw. The first time Jacob got the animal in his sights, he tried to take aim, but a quick snap of the alligators jaws and it began wrestling with Jacob over control of the gun. Unfortunately, there's no way to fire a kill shot from that vantage. After several tense moments, as the alligator went on the offensive, snapping at the guys in the boats, Jacob finally got his shot and the excitement was over. Enough excitement to work up an appetite. Good thing they'd just taken out something that was both a threat and a bona fide feast. Watch "Swamp People" on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on History.
