Default Swamp People Question

This show was mentioned on THT a few weeks ago. I've enjoyed watching every episode including last night. A new guy was introduced along with his two sons. However, no mention was made of Troy. Anyone have the inside scoop on what happened to Troy?

Another real life TV Soap Opera type broadcast in prime time on cable for a broader audience.

I am surprised they have not started a show called "Walmart People".

I have to think of an angle for a show called "Retired People" so I can be in it.

They found out he was dating his sister and they figured that was only good for the rating in west Virginia.

Must ratch off an awful lot of French people.

At the beginning of the show he says the Cajuns were French rejects from Canada.

Apparently gator fishing requires very little sensitivity.

What is the story with the redneck named Tmike. Why is there a T before Mike in his name?

Actually his father is pretty talented, that boat he built was impressive being built with absolutely no plans or drawings.

That's easy. Nap competitions. I'll win every time -- on speed to fall off, recliner position, and both open and closed mouth snoring.

I agree, I was super impressed with that boat. A rather odd design but functional for what it will be used for. I never figured out just how much he got paid for that thing?

and I agree about the Tmike thing...what's up with the T anyway?

also, troy's "hired gun" clint can't shoot worth $*&^!! it's funny b/c i think he's an idiot and troy always brags about how good he is. I think that's a love/hate relationship haha fun to watch

overall i like the show. Good down to earth people making a living doing something they have been doing all their lives. I like how they name some of the big gators and make it a game to catch em'.

The "T" is "silent" when spelled, but pronounced when the name is "spoken".

Example: MY real name is "TBruce", but I only use the "T" when I spell it - it's still pronounced "Bruce".

Regards,

Regarding the "T" thing names....Bobby Hebert's son (remember Bobby played for the Saints and the Falcons) anyway, his son plays tackle for LSU and his name is T-Bob. So does that mean Tiny Bob? I've heard it quite often in South Louisiana, but don't know the real story. Anybody? And I didn't bring this up to poke fun at the show or the people on it. They make an honest living doing what they can and asking for no slack from anybody. More than I can say for a lot of folks these days. I would rather have them at my party than a snake like Bernie Madoff even if Bernie would let me ride on his boat.

I thought it was TMikes Uncle that built the boat [ Long hair in the Bibs ] and he built the boat for $4000.00 , the ol'boy gave him $1200.00 to start it.

You better look at a map!

Last time I checked Nova Scotia was a part of Canada, right!

The Acadians were expelled from Acadia (pronounced a-ca-dee), because they would not convert to Church of England.

One of the world's first cases of genocide, history and studies have concluded that the actual Cajun population is only 10% of what it would be had they been left alone in Acadia. (Seen that on a public broadcast TV show a few years ago)

For what it's worth. Being of Acadian blood myself, I have asked the Britsh goverment and the Queen for reparations. No response yet, but I have high hopes!!!!!!!!!!

Russ I personally know the Klieberts very well I met them when I went to college at South Louisiana University and I worked at the alligator farm. I also hunted and fished with Mike and Bruce for years. TMike is for Tiny Mike from when he was born not so Tiny any longer.

Mike Sr is quite the guy he has a very high IQ and I can tell you that I have seen him do some amazing things. He is the one that designed the boats that you see them running for Warren Coco from GoDevil. I'm not sure if he is still building them but did at one time. Mike Sr has also built his own house and all of the buildings that you see on their compound without any drawings.

It is kind of cool seeing people you know on TV and having done all of what they are doing on this show brings back some fond memories.

I thought sure someone would have answered this by now. The "T" before the name is just a shortened version of "petite" which is a reference to "small" or a younger person. In cajun french you rarely hear the entire word and it mostly sounds like "T". It's fading, but most families had a T'boy, a T Jean, a T bob, or something.

David,
Not to bust your chops, but where is South Louisiana University?
