Posts Tagged ‘Swamp People Season 5’


Well, for all of you Swamp People fans out there, we collected a few quotes from David and Jeromy from Episode 3 called “Gator Jacked” (called so because thieves were cashing in on the swampers’ gators) just in case you missed it.

Before we get to those quotes though, Troy (called “Nunky” by Holden) and Holden had a great day. We think it’s so funny when Troy catches so many big gators that his boat looks like it is going to sink any minute. That was the case this time again and as they drove to the buyer’s at the end of the day, Troy was going real slow so as to stay above water.

Anyway, in this episode, Jeromy and David were on again and this time, it seems like they’re trying a little bit too hard with the weird quotes. It is possible that the television station is asking them to do that. In any case, here  are the quotes:

Jeromy: I’m fired up like a Tonka truck ready to get it.

Jeromy: Man, it is unbearable hot our here. I ain’t sweated this much since I said, “I do.”

Jeromy (after seeing a dead alligator going to waste in the water): That’s somebody that…didn’t have their mom and daddy whip their butt when they was growing up. That’s what that is.

Jeromy (getting to what he thought was way in the back Mr. Jimmy’s property): Alligator paradise. These alligators ain’t even never seen a person. I feel a little more confident. I’m startin’ to grin like a possum eatin’ cow crap.

Some of Jeromy’s efforts worked, and some of them didn’t…

Episode 4 was called “Gravedigger” (a gator was named Gravedigger by Roger Rivers because according to him, he had dug his own grave by being a cannibal gator who had also bent one of his No. 14 hooks). Roger Rivers is really annoying. He thinks way too much of himself and way too much about what he is doing. After all, he is just hunting alligators. History Channel must be trying to find the dumbest swampers so that their audience can laugh at how stupid they are. Troy was too smart. Willie and Junior were too smart. Bruce was too smart, etc. So they are having to find people who will bring them all down. Roger Rivers would be just the person to do that.

Junior’s new partner, at least until Theresa heals up, is named Dougie. He is pretty weird and Junior made a lot of funny faces, but in the end, they made a good team and Dougie did a great job. Willie came over to Junior’s house to check him out and they met again at the end of the day at the buyer’s. Willie, who has struck out on his own, only got 2 gators so Junior was happy since Dougie and he got 12.

Bruce had a bad day, forgetting his tags and having to go back home to retrieve them. Then, when he got back on the water, the tide had gone out and his bait was hanging too high. He was all alone because Ron was hung up with some family business and Tyler, his dog, is getting too old to go out with Bruce.

Swamp People is still a great show (for people who like this sort of thing), but some of the people make us kind of sick. Just give us Troy, Junior and Willie, Glenn, Bruce – all of the old people. They were the best. If you want to watch videos of Swamp People, here is a link to History.com.


Tonight we watched the second episode from the fifth season of Swamp People. These first two episodes have shown most of the swamper’s starting day of the season. It looks like Bruce and Ron, Glenn, and Willie are among the only hunters who haven’t appeared yet. Maybe they’ll be in the next episode.

The first two episodes were good. We saw some of the old people like Junior and Troy, but we also saw some new people. Theresa is Junior’s wife and she is his hunting partner this season as Willie has struck out on his own. Junior & Theresa were doing well until Theresa got bitten by a gator they were pulling into the boat. The gator was shot, but it was still alive. Even though we never saw any blood, Junior said that it had bit clear through her left ring finger. Theresa might not be able to continue hunting and if she has to quit, Junior will have to find a new hunting partner.

Terrell is back from we think the second season. He is not one of our favorites. This season he has a hunting partner named Johnny. Johnny reminds us of a mothball and we are wondering if he has any teeth. Troy is partnering with his nephew Holden, 15. They look like they’re going to have a good season together. Jacob is hunting with Miss Marie until Chase gets back from a job in California. Miss Marie is a really good shot.

Then there is a new native American named Roger Rivers.We can’t remember his partner’s name. Before Roger starts hunting for alligators, he first gets a loggerhead turtle to do some Native American rituals to keep him safe for the season. We didn’t think too much about that and his partner didn’t look very impressed either. We hope he just sticks to alligator hunting in future shows.

RJ and Jay Paul are back, saying “bro” a lot and giving each other fist bumps. Liz and her daughter are partners again since Kristi got married and is apparently having a baby.

David and Jeromy are back as well, and as always, they are in a league of their own. On the 2nd episode, Jeromy was driving a motor house as they were going to drive south to Raceland, LA. Here is how Jeromy described it :

“We’re fixing to hit the road with this forty year old motor home, and I’m hoping it’s gonna make it. Can’t get in the bathroom cause the door’s broke right there. Have to go out in the woods. It don’t have no shocks on it so it bounces a lot. The refrigerator don’t work in there. It’s not a pretty sight, and it’s got a little smell. It ain’t got no air condition. You burn up. It’s hot. But it’s something for us to sleep in, keep us out of the rain.”

The 1st thing the boys did when they got to Raceland was to get an alligator out of a lake so that the owner of the lake would give them the 30 tags they went down there for in the 1st place. It was a cheap thing for that owner to do, but David and Jeromy got it eventually, after trying to bait it with sausage (David’s supper) and Cheetos.

The 1st two episodes were pretty good with some old with some new. As usual, we don’t like the new people very much. They have to grow on us for a season and some we never will like as much as others.

If you’ve never seen Swamp People, you can check it out here. It’s just one of the things we watch, even though they do the same thing week after week. It’s the same, but it’s different 🙂
