Swamp people is a History Channel TV series that started airing from 2010. The first episode of this show premiered on August 22, 2010. This show revolves around the peoples living in the Atchafalaya River Basin swamp area. Moving around the hunting of alligators, which is a yearly source of income for the people living in the swamp, this show gives an insight into life in a swamp.
Similarly, this show also teaches about the culture of peoples living in a swamp. They hunt American alligators, which is one of their primary sources of income. Alligator hunting season starts in September and lasts for 30 days, the rest of the year. So, the hunters do their own thing during the non-hunting season.
Because of the nature of the show, we can expect some casualties as well. Because alligator isn’t precisely a docile creature, and the hunter’s life is also at risk. Some of the cast members have even died while the production of the show was going on.

Ashley Jones Net Worth & Bio
Not to be mistaken with the actress Ashley Jones, this Ashley from Swamp People has earned a nickname ‘Deadeye.’ Jones won a gator tag in a lottery and invited her friend Ronnie Adams who is one of the best alligator hunters in the swamps of Louisiana. Impressed by her marksmanship, Ronnie invited Ashley in the hunting season.
Eager at the chance, Ashley joined the boat along with Ronnie to hunt some alligators. Along with Ronnie, Ashley hunted alligators and proved her nickname. While there have been some rumors about Ashley and Ronnie being a thing in real life, it couldn’t be more untrue.
Ashley is a married woman and a mother, and she is devoted to her family. Once she was fighting against depression and now alligators. Hunting took her away from depression; at first, she was hunting wild hogs, where she learned about her marksmanship skill. She joined Ronnie’s boat as a guest hunter.
Ashley joined Swamp People in 2018, hence the lack of information on anything related to her. Nothing is known about her husband or how many children she has. We do know that she suffered a miscarriage in the past. Also, since Jones just recently joined the Swamp People as cast, her net worth probably isn’t as impressive as the rest of the actors.
Ronnie Adams Net Worth & Bio
Ronnie Adams is the large chunk of the show. Standing tall at the height of 6ft and 5 inches, Ronnie probably looks pretty intimidating in person. He is a Louisiana local and got into alligator hunting from a young age. While he was just a kid, he used to join his grandfather in alligator hunting.
Being a professional hunter with a lot of experience, Ronnie brought in his friend Ashley Jones who is new to alligator hunting. But she has a fantastic aim and is nicknamed ‘Deadeye,’ with his friend Ronnie set out to hunt alligators in the 2018 season of the Swamp People.
There has been no information about Ronnie except for his weight, which is a staggering 265 pounds. It is unknown if Ronnie is married or single, but fans of the show speculate him to be single. As, the fans are pairing him up with his friend Ashley, who is already married.
Ronnie was previously in the US Army, so his net worth might be in the five digits, creeping towards six figures. But, the exact net worth for Ronnie is unknown as any financial information about him is unavailable. We know that Ronnie owns the boat, which he uses in hunting the alligators so, we know he isn’t poor in the least.
Junior Edwards Net Worth & Bio
Junior Edwards is one of the most impressive men in the whole show. His courage is genuinely commendable, even fighting against such a fierce creature as an alligator. His date of birth is unknown, hence is unknown age. But we can assume that he is in his 50s.
Junior has a son Wille who appeared in the show alongside him. Wielding the Treble Hook, which Junior makes, his son would go up against alligator as well. The father-son duo is so adept in hunting alligators that they make the whole process look easy, like hunting a rabbit or an antelope. But any other person in their situation wouldn’t be able to perform like them for sure.
Junior is a married man, Theresa Edwards is Junior’s wife and Willie’s mother. Theresa and Junior have two sons together, Willie and Randy, of which we can see Willie in the show alongside his father. The couple has been together for over 30 years, and their love is still going strong.
As for Junior’s net worth, he has the same net worth as his son Willie, who works alongside him in the show Swamp People. Both father and son have $500k in net worth each. Their ancestral job of hunting has led them to make a fortune thanks to the reality TV show Swamp People.

- Portraying alligators as bad, big mean animals which a lot of animal right activist are against.
