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
