Well, we weren’t going to watch Swamp People anymore because there got to be too many people we didn’t enjoy watching or listening to. Then we heard that this was the last season and also that a few of the people we didn’t like were not invited back on this year.

So… you guessed it. We are watching the final season of Swamp People and even though we’re starting late, we’ll be caught up before long.

The first episode was entitled “High Water Hell” because the water in the swamp was a lot higher than normal at the beginning of the season. This was bad because the big gators had a lot more space to roam around in looking for things to eat.

Anyway, not much happening in this show besides more theatrics. Ron got a new puppy and this threw Bruce into a tizzy because he was still feeling bad about losing Tyler. The natives were annoying as usual with their mumbo-jumbo “praying” and superstition. They decided to go into Troy’s territory and catch the large gators Troy couldn’t because they had an airboat. They caught 40 gators in one day and think they stole the title of “King of the Swamp” away from Troy, but no, they didn’t. They did, however, win the “Most Annoying and Nauseating Swampers of The Year” award.

Liz & company were kicked off the show, thank goodness. David & Jeromy were not invited back as well.

Not sure why some of us felt compelled to watch the show. Once upon a time we liked it, but after all, it’s pretty boring after 6 seasons 🙂

That’s right! Swamp People season 6 began last night with “Bounty on the Bayou”. I’m not even going to put a link to the articles we’ve written about it, because we have so many. Just search, “Swamp People,” on our home page, and you will be bombarded. Anyway, Swamp People has been a show that we’ve watched for a long time, and that we do enjoy. It’s about people in Louisiana who hunt alligators, basically. Over the years, they’ve added people to their cast as well as little things to the show that we don’t like, but in general, we still enjoy watching it. So today, we watched the Season 6 Premier!

Season 6 begins with the narrator announcing that a local alligator buyer put a $10,000 bounty on the biggest gator caught in the 1st 21 days of the season. So everybody was trying to catch big alligators from the beginning. I’m wondering if History Channel came up with that or if the buyer actually did that of his own accord. In any case, there is a reward for the hunter who can catch the biggest alligator.

All of the old hunters are still there, such as Bruce, Junior, and Troy. Last year, Troy was talking about quitting, but I guess he changed his mind. Junior is hunting with his wife, and Troy is hunting with his nephew, Holden. People were already entering gators to win the prize, and so far Junior has the biggest one. R.J. and Jay Paul brought a 10′ 5″ gator in, Troy came in with one that was 10′ 10″, and Junior had an 11′ 6.5″ alligator.

The cool thing about Troy’s gator is that Holden fought with it and Troy shot it. It was the 1st gator Holden pulled up and kept up until it was killed. It was a pretty amazing alligator to be one’s first. Junior went all out to get his. He did a great job; he also looks like he lost a lot of weight.

Anyway, so Junior is in the lead so far, but the contest isn’t over yet!

Swamp People airs on Mondays on History Channel at 9/8 central, if you have any interest in watching. Last year they always had the episodes locked which was a bummer. This year it isn’t locked, but you have to wait for a lot of annoying commercials during the show.

UPDATE: They are locking the episodes again much to our dismay. If we find a good source to watch for free, we’ll let you know!
