Just the other day I made mention that a Texas based reality show would have to have guys featured with redneck/racecar names and of course they all would be goat roping and driving huge pick ups. Now of course I must add that driving a huge pick up can be a necessity in some parts of Texas and only if employed in some type work where some such monstrosity has a work advantage. Many in Texas, and perhaps other places, drive these things as some sort of gas guzzling status symbol. OK if you can afford it I suppose, just not my cup of tea. Sorry to get sidetracked right off the bat. It happens.
Now the Texas based reality show I just watched was called, I think, Rattlesnake Republic. It was pretty interesting. It was a good deal like the Swamp People show and in fact I believe it has the same narrator. These guys pretty much just run around in the arid regions of Texas catching rattlers. There are some real crazy characters and while I am not sure it will reach the popularity of the aforementioned Louisiana based show, it might. Some fool keeps a cobra as a pet and actually kissed the thing on top of the head.
That kind of thing draws a crowd.
