Glenn Guist is a professional gator hunter and cast member of the reality show Swamp People. Unlike most, who want to get out of the swamp after making a fortune, Glenn wants to stay in the swamp forever. Glen and his late brother Mitchell Guist who was also part of Swamp People come from a generation of gator hunters. The brothers were so close to each other that they merged their names and decided to call themselves Glenmitchell. In this article, we take a closer look at one of the brothers, Glenn Guist.
Glenn Guist was born to Hubert Guist and Bonnie Albritton and is one of the five siblings of the family. Born in 1958 he celebrates his birthday on the 8th of February. Amongst his siblings Hubert Guist Jr., Mitchell Guist, Tonya Guist, and Daniel Guist, Glenn was closest to Mitchell. Growing up, Glenn would often follow his father to gator hunting expeditions and wanted to learn tricks of the trade.
A talented hunter, Glenn depends on the swamp for his livelihood. Glenn has been a gator hunter all his life. Way before he made an appearance in Swamp People, Glenn worked with his family in the Conway Bayou in Louisiana. Glenn has spent all of his life on the swamp and doesn’t want a life elsewhere. Glenn is one of the regular cast members of the reality series, Swamp People. He has been around since the second season of the series and is still going strong. Glenn is one of the few people who survived the management change in 2016. Alongside his work on Swamp people, Glenn also has his personalized merchandise store.
Losing family members:
Over the years, Glenn has suffered from a lot of personal tragedies. He has lost all of his family members save for his sister, Tonya Guist. But the death that hit him the hardest was the death of his partner and brother, Mitchell Guist. Mitchell fainted while he was loading off items from his boat and was quickly rushed to the Morgan City Hospital. He was pronounced dead on the spot and after an autopsy, it was revealed that Mitchell had suffered from a heart attack. Since then, Glenn has been alone in his hunting endeavors and is very much dependent on the swamp for his livelihood.
Glenn has never gotten married to anybody or even dated someone. He spent all his life on the swamp with his family and plans to do so until his final days. On the other hand, Glenn likes to keep his comings and goings private and hasn’t revealed much to media. But as of now, Glenn is a single man who has never dated anyone or gotten married.
An all-around proficient hunter, Glen is often seen scouring for rabbits, raccoons, and squirrels. He loves fishing, which has transformed into one of his daily routines. As of 2020, Glenn’s net worth is estimated to be around USD 300,000.
