Pickle Wheat, hailing from Poydras, Louisiana, is no stranger to the art of alligator hunting. Raised in a family with deep swamp roots, she draws wisdom from generations of swampers, including her great-grandfather, an original alligator hunter.
However, before her relationship with Joshua, Pickle dated fellow alligator hunter Chase Landry. Their public relationship sparked intrigue among fans, but the details of their split remain a well-guarded secret.
So, join us as we embark on a journey through the extraordinary life of Cheyenne “Pickle” Wheat, an alligator-hunting sensation who has not only conquered the swamps but also found love and family amidst the wild and untamed world of Swamp People.
What are Swamp People?
The American reality television program Swamp People debuted on History on August 22, 2010.
The show chronicles the daily lives of professional alligator hunters who make their living by hunting American alligators in the marshes of the Atchafalaya River Basin.
In Louisiana, the first Wednesday of September marks the start of the 30-day alligator season.
At this time, many of the alligator hunters, following a tradition dating back about 300 years, earn most of their yearly income in a high-risk vocation dependent on experience and the whims of weather within strict regulations by wildlife laws.
Once a hunter “tags out,” their season is over and they are not allowed to kill any more alligators for the remainder of the season. Each hunter is given a set number of tags that must be attached to their kills.
Who is Pickle on Swamp People?
Swamp People star Pickle Wheat’s real name is Cheyenne Wheat. She may be one of the youngest members of the show, but she has proven herself to be a formidable hand at the trade, all while quickly becoming a fan favorite.
She was raised in Poydras, Louisiana, with her brother by Swampers after being born on September 21, 1995, to Eddie and Missie Wheat.
Her biography on the History website notes that she depends on the knowledge gathered from her long family history of swampers. Wheat penned a piece once.
Her granddad’s unmistakable shooting strategy permitted him to take care of and safeguard his kin for a long time, notwithstanding society’s growing dismissal of them. She had first been acquainted with gator hunting by her granddad.
For my family and me, it is critical to stick to the grain and pass on the lessons we have learned from our ancestors. It keeps us rooted and happy.”
At the point when Wheat joined Swamp People in Season 12, which appeared on History on February 4, 2021, she put her gator-hunting ability under a magnifying glass and attempted to do right by her loved ones.
Since then, she has made an appearance in the spinoff series Serpent Invasion of Swamp People. Wheat works at the family company, Wheats and Custom Calls, when she is not out in the swamp gator hunting.
The gun shop is run by her parents and her brother, James Wheat, and she can occasionally be found making duck and turkey calls.
Aside from her position at Cameo, she brings in cash by making recordings for her fans on Cameo and selling clothing on her authority site. Her genuine name is Cheyenne Wheat, yet her fans realize she is best known as Pickle Wheat.
She previously revealed to the Louisiana Sportsman that she was gifted the unique nickname by her father.
How is Pickle’s love life?
Joshua Kippes and Cheyenne “Pickle” Wheat are romantically involved. In New Orleans, Louisiana, Joshua works as an emergency medical technician.
In November 2022, the couple declared their pregnancy, and in April 2023, they invited their little girl Maemi into the world. From a past relationship, Joshua has a child.
The actor from Swamp People once dated Chase Landry, Troy Landry’s son and an alligator hunter. After dating since October 2020, they made their relationship official on October 25, 2020. It is still unclear when and why the two broke apart.
Joshua, in the meantime, has a confidential Instagram account, so except if you count his profile picture, which shows the EMT with the Truth star and his child, he has not posted any photos of the child or of his notable sweetheart.
