According to the official biography on Discovery Channel's website, Tickle is the only name used, similar to the way in which some actors and musicians use only a single name. We were however, able to find references to a first name from unofficial sources which strongly suggest his first name is Steve, specifically Steve Tickle of Virginia.
Things get a little cloudy when trying to dig up real details as it came to light last year that this reality show, Moonshiners, is not exactly "reality," but is rather a dramatization of what they claim are accurate portrayals of the secret lives of moonshiners.
Season 2 of Moonshiners ended with three special episodes. No news yet on the launch date of a third season.
Of interest, stars from the Discovery channel hit show made an appearance at Screwie Louie's Porpoise Pub in Seminole, Florida for a recent fundraising event. All the money raised went towards a young woman's medical bills. She was hit by a car in a crosswalk coming home from high school.
