One of the stars of a successful reality show died Monday after falling while loading items into his boat in Louisiana, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker. Mitchell Guist of “Swamp People” would have turned 48 later this week.
Guist appeared on "Swamp People" with his brother Glenn, with the two so close in appearance that some people believed them to be twins. The History series focuses on their activities as alligator hunters.
"Swamp People" drew a series-high 5.5 million total viewers to its second-season finale, and is part of History’s programming shift to docu-series about people doing tough jobs, the piece adds.
