A beardless brother on Duck Dynasty? What is this world coming to? A&E recently confirmed the rumors revolving around the addition of another family member, and yes, he is clean-shaven. Any other surprises in store for the show’s fourth season?
A&E’s Duck Dynasty has proven a huge hit these last few years, garnering an impressive ten million viewers for its season three finale. This upward swing in viewership is sure to continue, for, the addition of a fourth brother is sure to add an additional element of conflict to the show.
The latest family member to join the Duck Dynasty cast is Alan Robertson. Originally a pastor, Alan has dropped his profession in hopes of joining in on the television hit that has made his brothers so popular. But it’s not all about personal fame, as Alan explained to the New York Post in a recent interview. “What I do for our church — you see, it’s a pretty good-sized church — impacts a lot of people, but because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people.” Alan adds that, as an evangelist, it’s only natural to spread the word of God to as many people as possible and that being on television puts him in a great position to do just that.
Of course, the big question is, will Alan wind up joining his brothers in all their bearded glory? The pastor won’t spoil that surprise just yet, but he does admit, “The beards are so iconic.” And he has donned a beard during hunting season in the past, so who knows?
