How the Show “Swamp People” Has Lasted This Long

Swamp People is a reality TV show on History. As its name suggests, it is centered around people who live in the swamps that can be found in the state of Louisiana as well as in other places in the United States. To be exact, it is centered around people who hunt American alligators for most of their annual income, which is a rather risky profession to say the least. As a result, while some people might wonder about how Swamp People has managed to last eight seasons and counting in spite of its limited premise, this is perhaps not as surprising as it should be. Simply put, alligator hunting is a high-risk endeavor, which in turn, means that there is a ready-made base of potential viewers who are interested in indulging themselves in vicarious risk-taking. For proof, look no further than the sheer number of other reality TV shows that are about risky professions, with examples ranging from gold mining to Alaskan sea fishing. As a result, so long as Swamp People continues to be filmed, it seems probable that it will continue to be watched. READ MORE...

'Swamp People': Gator Uproots Tree It Was Tied To

"If you see a gator tied to a tree, that's gotta be him." -- Bruce, " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) It's probably one of the most memorable lines in "Swamp People" history, made even more so by the fact that it was true. Bruce and Ron had a gator caught on their line, which was anchored to at tree. But when they went to fetch the creature, it was nowhere to be found. Neither was the tree. So Bruce uttered the hilariously accurate line above as the two men set off to find their alligator, their line and the tree dragging behind him. And after a while, they did just that, and they got their kill. That's one gator, though, that they'll probably remember for a long while.

'Swamp People': Catching An 'Obese' Alligator

Obese is a term usually associated with overweight people who reach a certain body mass index. However, the boys on " Swamp People " (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) used it to describe Gourmand, a gourmet eater of a gator in the swamp. At 11-feet long, Gourmand was clocking in at a similar weight to his 13-foot brethren. And at over 1,000 pounds of roly-poly strength and gnashing teeth, Gourmand proved a difficult catch as well. Those extra pounds didn't slow him down at all, nor did they make him any less deadly. Nevertheless, R.J. and Jay Paul manage to wrangle him in the boat, where they marvel at his girth. The gator had become a problem when he started eating crabs out of the cages of local fishermen. At least, he's a big problem that won't be a problem any longer. Keep up with the excitement on "Swamp People" every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on History.

'Swamp People': Don't Pull The Gator On The Boat Until It's Dead

Fans of "Swamp People" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) mourned the loss of Mitchell Guist alongside the latest episode, which kicked off with a tribute to the series star. Guist passed away Monday after reportedly suffering a seizure while out on the waters. The official cause of death for the 47-year old was natural causes, according to CNN . But while fans mourned his passing, the adventure continued on the muddy waters. Troy was out on the waters with his son Chase for some quality father-son time, but that time quickly became dangerous when they hauled on board an alligator that wasn't nearly as dead as they'd first thought. The beast started moving its mouth open and closed, and then moving across the floor of the boat, while Chase jumped out of the way. To make matters worse, Chase was out of bullets, so he had to quickly reload while keeping an eye on the animal before he could finally put it down.
