R. J. and Jay Paul Molinere, from the History Channel’s “Swamp People” reality show, will be in Carrollton Nov. 12 to help raise money for the Central Middle School (located in West Georgia) athletic program.
The popular TV stars will appear from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Central Middle School gymnasium. Two types of tickets are available: A VIP ticket for $30 and an autograph-only ticket for $10.
“The VIP ticket will let you meet and greet R.J. and Jay Paul, and get photos taken with them,” said Mark T. Sullivan, local agent for the show. “They will talk about the show, gator hunting and what they do when they’re not hunting.”
Sullivan said autograph ticket holders can take photos while the Molineres sign pictures, but there will not be time for posed photos with the stars.
Tickets are available at the Central Middle School office or online at www.theconsumedagency.com.
According to the Molineres’ website, the men are Native Americans from Houma, La. R. J. is a four-time world
arm wrestling champion who has lived most of his life off the resources of the land by trapping, shrimping, crabbing and alligator hunting.
Jay Paul describes himself as an “adrenaline junky.” He is a two-time Golden Gloves boxing champion and an undefeated MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter. He loves to hunt, fish and do almost any outdoor activity.
Swamp People debuted on the History Channel last year on Aug. 22. The show follows the day-to-day
activities of several Cajuns living in the Atchafalaya River basin in Louisiana who hunt alligators for a living.
The second season started on March 31 and moved from a Sunday time slot to 9 p.m. on Thursday.
