Teen alligator wrangler to join "Swamp People"

HOUMA, La. (AP) - A young alligator wrangler from Kraemer is stepping back into the public eye.

Sixteen-year-old Zamariah "ZZ" Loupe will join the cast of the History Channel's hit reality TV show "Swamp People."

The Courier reports Loupe first appeared on national television with his parents on Country Music Television's "Trading Spouses" in 2004. The show took two families with radically different lifestyles and outlooks on life and switched the moms for a week, keeping the cameras rolling to watch what happens. There, he won audiences over with his charming "ZZ-isms," and fearless attitude.

"Swamp People," which debuted fall 2011 to 4.4 million viewers, features hunters from Pierre Part, Port Sulphur, Bayou Sorrel and Lake Pontchartrain's North Shore. Its fourth season premiered last week.
