Robert “Frenchy” Crochet Net Worth
When not hunting, Robert “Frenchy” Crochet manages beehives, harvests sinker Cyprus trees from the swamp, and raises cattle. All these and the Swamp People paycheque being his income sources, he pulled in under $750K net worth (before 2021).
Robert Crochet is a gator angler on Swamp People which is an American reality series that circles the everyday life of alligator hunters living in the swamps of the Atchafalaya River Basin.
Robert, now living in Terrebonne Parish, originally joined in 2016. He continued to appear for the show’s 7th to 10th Seasons and then left the show only to reappear for the 2021 series.
Like always, he returned to the water scene again alongside his best friend and co-star Gerard “Gee” Singleton. They have teamed up since the beginning (2016).
Initially, Robert had another friend in mind in place of Gee i.e. to be his fishing helper, but because that friend backed out at the last minute, Gee appeared on the scene.
Robert and Gee are buddies even when the camera is not rolling. Every time, the duo is on the series, their families get together to watch the episodes. There are even days when every table in the restaurant is packed with the family of Robert and Gee. Gee said, they usually gather at his cousin’s house.
Anyway, the lifelong commercial fisherman decided to come back as a result of the population growing uncontrollably.
Robert is also constantly on the lookout for a pesky bear that lives behind his house.
In 2018, he was exclusively and prominently profiled by the Country Roads Magazine.
