One of the best things about reality TV is how seemingly normal people become stars overnight. Joseph Lott is one of those people. A Virginian native, Joseph led a normal life before being injected into Mountain Monsters. The reality series revolves around the Alapachain mountains and its mysterious sightings. The series airs on the Destination America network and is one of their premium offerings. Over the years, the show has gathered a massive number of viewers and remains the most-watched show on the network. The show follows the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings as they try to get to the bottom of the mysterious sightings. In this article, we will take a closer look at one of the first six members of the series, Joseph Lott.
Similar to most of his co-stars, there is very little information about Joseph Lott. The man is believed to be around his early 50s or so and has lived in Virginia most of his life. Joseph is a retired US Marine and with the experience from the time, no wonder he is good at handling gunpowder and guns.
If you have been watching Mountain monsters for a while, you will be well-aware of Joseph’s nickname, Huckleberry. While most fans seem to take it as a form of codename, it refers to Jopseh’s characters. During the early 19th century, Huckleberry was used for denoting a person who was right for the job. His experience with gunpowder and guns made Joseph a perfect fit for the job. Joseph works as the head of security for Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS). As a retired US Marine, Joseph is well versed in survival techniques and is often seen helping out fellow hunters.
An actor in disguise:
One of the weird things about Mountain Monsters is that only three of the original six cast members knew each other beforehand. John Tice, Jeff Headlee, and Willy McQuillian had been friends for a long time. On the other hand, the remaining three were brought into the series. Given Jacob‘s background as an actor, fans started speculating that the remaining three including Joseph, were actors in disguise. While there is no evidence to prove the claims, there is none to refute it either. As the series is heavily scripted, fans are often left wondering if the series has any truth to it at all.
Brushing with the law:
While Joseph seems to be a man of mellow nature, he did brush with the law in March of 2018. A report issued by the Ritchie County Sheriff’s Department revealed that Joseph was caught with a bag of marijuana, six bags of methamphetamine, and a bag of fentanyl. After the run-in with the cops, Joseph threw the bags into the woods but with no avail. Even though he did resist the arrest, Joseph was brought to the station for further questioning. His fate was never revealed to the public, but from his appearances in Mountains Monsters, it is safe to say he got out of the hook.
Personal Life: Joseph Lott wife and kids
While much remains to be discovered about Joseph, he has revealed that he is a married man. There is little information about his wife, but the pair do have children. Joseph often talks that his little boy takes after him.
