Gloria is an entrepreneur in everything she does. She has figured out that people who live near the Everglades like to eat gator eggs. So, she has created a very fine gator egg business with her groom Gary and their workers Garth, Garrett, Gabby, Gus, and Gavin. But, she has also found that not all gator eggs are turned into scrambled eggs; some hatched. And that's the catch, but not for Gloria. She just started another business -- that of returns!
