Last night marked the season four premiere of A&E hit Duck Dynasty…and with it, the much-anticipated debut of beardless brother Alan Robertson. Who knew that a clean-shaven face could have such an impact?!
Weddings are no anomaly in reality television, but no show does a ceremony quite like Duck Dynasty. This was, in no way, your standard wedding. For starters, there’s the fact that Phil Robertson and Miss Kay have already been married for several decades. But attaching a ceremony to the renewal of vows is fairly commonplace. Less so is a ceremony in which every member of the wedding party manages to screw up the formal wardrobe. But when it comes to the Duck Dynasty clan, wardrobe malfunctions are to be expected.
Serving as sharp contrast to our ill-disguised redneck heroes was Alan Robertson, the final family member to join the cast. Alan is a pastor with a notable lack of facial hair. He’s also the perfect candidate for officiating Phil and Kay’s wedding.
The main men of Duck Dynasty really do love Alan, but they’re quick to highlight the many ways in which he differs from his brothers. As Willie noted during last night’s premiere, “It may be odd to call a pastor the black sheep of the family, but that’s what he is. The perfectly-shorn black sheep of the Robertsons.”
Of course, with the returned influence of his “bearded brethren,” Alan’s clean-cut approach might give way just a bit. Apparently, he hasn’t always played the role of nice guy pastor. As a youngster, Alan was an expert in sibling torture, and, as Willie explained, his current look might be a bit deceiving. “That smooth-faced man of God has a black belt in purple nurples.”
