LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Over the weekend, hundreds made it out to the Central Gulf Coast Boat, Sport and RV Show in Lake Charles.

Outside, people walked up and down the rows of new RVs. Inside the Lake Charles Civic Center, people lined up to see the boats, but that wasn't the only thing drawing guests to the show.

Gator Queen Liz Cavalier Choates, from the reality show "Swamp People," and her daughter, Jessica, were in town Saturday. They spent time signing autographs and taking pictures for some very excited fans.

"One guy came up earlier and he was trembling," Liz said.

"He had tears in his eyes and he almost started crying," Jessica said.

And while she's on a very popular television show, Gator Liz said the fame is something she may never get used to.

"It tries to grow on you, but it just doesn't stick with me," she said.

Jessica is now joining her mom on the show for Season 4. They both agree they make a good team.

"You don't think that little thing right there can pull in a 12-footer but she can," Liz said of Jessica.

"My mom was proud of me and that made me feel good," Jessica said.
