Back in 2012, “Swamp People” cast member Mitchell Guist died of natural causes at only 47 years old while working on building his houseboat. Guist was one of the favorites on the series at the time, along with his brother and fellow cast member Glenn Guist. “The two were inseparable,” Brian Catalina, executive producer of “Swamp People,” told CNN. “These guys were born in the same house that they both still lived in, up until yesterday. They were two peas in a pod for sure. Neither had ever married. They were just as brothers as you could be.”
Aside from Guist, several other cast members have left an indelible mark on “Swamp People” viewers. Though the cast members change throughout each season of the show, those likely to make an appearance on the 13th season, which is set to premiere on January 27 on the History Channel, include Troy Landry, Chase Landry, Jacob Landry, Pickle Wheat, Willie Edwards, “Little Willie” Edwards, Ronnie Adams, Ashley Jones, Holden Landry, and many more, according to Meaww.
Prior to landing a spot on the show, Jones was struggling to overcome depression caused by a miscarriage. She felt as though she was missing something in her life until her husband took her hunting. “My advice to any guy who dates someone who doesn’t hunt — take them,” Jones told the Clarion Ledger. “It may bring something out in them they didn’t know about. It changed my life. It saved my life. It really did.”
