When speaking of “Swamp People” and Glenn Guist, it is impossible not to mention his brother – Mitchell Guist. Living together since their early adulthood in the bayous of Southern Louisiana, the Guist brothers were literally inseparable. Although contrary to popular opinion supported by an incredible resemblance, Glen and Mitchell are not twins. They gained huge popularity soon after they appeared for the first time on the “Swamp People” in the show’s second season in 2011, instantly becoming the show’s cover faces. This engagement provided the basis for Glenn Guist’s net worth.

Becoming instant stars, they managed to attract huge amount of audience attention to the small screens to watch their everyday struggle in the swamps, hunting for a living, not only alligators, but also catfish, rabbits, bullfrogs as well as rabbits and even turtles. All these endeavors helped Glenn Guist to add a rather steady amount of money to his overall revenues.

However, in 2012, during show’s third season and at the age of 47, Glenn’s brother Mitchell suddenly passed away suffering a seizure while building a houseboat on the Belle River. In May 2012, History Channel aired “The Voodoo Bayou”, a special episode dedicated to Mitchell. Although being shattered after his brother’s death, Glenn managed to finish building Mitchell’s houseboat, in memory of his late brother, which was later aired in the fourth season of “Swamp People”. It is certain that these appearances left a notable impact on the total size of Glenn Guist’s net worth.

Since his debut in 2011, Glen Guist has appeared in every episode of the following seven seasons, including the latest, eighth season which has been airing since February 2017. Doubtlessly, all these ventures have helped Glenn Guist to dramatically increase the total size of his wealth.

Currently, Glenn Guist dwells between Pecan Island and Gonzales in Indiana, still hunting various swamp animals, primarily alligators, for a living. There is no information available to the media as to Glenn’s marital status, although he is believed to still be single – no partner has appeared in the series.
