An alligator hunter and reality TV star, Bruce Mitchell, is best known for his appearance on the TV series, Swamp People.

Born on July 13, 1960, as the oldest of five siblings, he grew up in Ponchatoula, Louisiana.

He met his wife, Janet Kliebert, when they were in junior high. They are parents to two daughters, Lorraine Michelle and Janice Marie.

Janet’s father owned and ran Kliebert’s Alligator & Turtle Farm, where Bruce had worked before marrying Janet.

However, after marrying her in 1980, he moved to the farm, becoming one of three main people.

After a number of prosperous years, the farm was opened for public visits, and then he was approached by the A&E Network.

Accompanied by his dog, Tyler, who passed away on April 28, 2014, he started on the show since its beginning on August 22, 2010. 

After the introduction of the war veteran, Ron Methvin, in season 3, Ron started hunting alligators in Hammond, Louisiana, along with him.

He is known for his trademark overalls and American flag bandana around the head.

Aside from fishing and collecting guns and knives, he is also a big motorcycle fan and often goes riding.

Through years of hard work and commitment, he has collected an estimated net worth around $400,000.
