Willie Robertson’s Big Tip

Willie and Korie Robertson aren’t so tight with the money they have been making off of the Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty brands.  While the couple was in Washington, DC for President Obama’s State of the Union address, they had dinner at the Washington Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse with Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich and his wife, Senator Ted Cruz,  and talk radio host Mark Levin.   Apparently a good time was had, because the group stayed until 2 AM, long past the restaurant’s normal closing time of 11 PM.   The bill for the night?  $5,000!    Willie grabbed the check and paid the bill, while leaving an additional $5,000 for the wait staff.  

Most of us feel generous leaving our 20 percent.  Willie’s tip is a whopping 100%.  You can’t accuse him of being cheap.

Season Five Kicks Off With Rebecca Robertson

The fifth season of Duck Dynasty kicks off tonight with the addition of a new cast member.  Rebecca Robertson, one of Willie and Korie’s adopted children, will join the show along with another unnamed “bearded member”.  Rebecca was originally an exchange student from Taiwan who Willie and Korie accepted as a foster child and eventually adopted.  Rebecca’s siblings, John Luke and Sadie have been regulars on the show for several seasons, and Will, the Robertson’s other adopted child, has made appearances on camera.  Bella, the Robertson’s youngest daughter, has remained relatively unknown.

Rebecca and her mom Korie own Duck & Dressing, a clothing boutique.  Rebecca is currently in LA buying clothing for the store’s spring and summer line.  She also posts on her Duck & Dressing Blog .

Duck Dynasty a Marketing Powerhouse

Duck Dynasty related merchandise will reach over $400 million in sales this year according to marketing studies. This makes the Duck Dynasty “brand” one of the most successful in TV history. In case you haven’t noticed, Duck Dynasty merchandise is everywhere. You can find T-shirts, DVDs, books, mugs, headbands and more bearing the Duck Dynasty logo. Si Robertson seems to be one of the bigger hits with his “Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle” on most of the non-fiction best seller lists. Replicas of Si’s famous teacup are a best seller on Amazon. Don’t forget the Si bobble-head dolls, talking plush doll and, believe it or not, Si Robertson Chia pet planters that grow plants that form a beard ( see Duck Dynasty Chia Uncle Si Decorative Chia Pet Planter ).

Si Robertson Behind the Scenes

In a new video on Youtube from Billboard magazine, Si Robertson talks about his reading of the “Night Before Christmas” for the “Duck the Halls” Christmas album.  Si says that he lately finds himself mistaking Willie for Santa.  “I don’t always see or hear things as well as I used to, and it is easy to mistake Willie for Santa. That is the basis for my new rendition of this holiday classic.  I mean, come on Jack! Willie needs to lose a few pounds and get the white out of his beard.”  In the video, Si sounds like he didn’t really agree with Willie’s interpretation of the poem. “Leave that up to the audience once they get it, whether it’s better or not.”

Jep Nails It!

Wednesday night’s Duck Dynasty Christmas special had the Robertson clan preparing for a Nativity scene for their local church. During the rehearsal, Jep Robertson obsesses over his single line and worries that he may not get it right. His fellow cast members are no help. They ridicule him and tell him that his part, the Innkeeper, is irrelevant and there is no reason to worry about it. Martin, seconds before Jep is to make his debut, attempts to confuse Jep by telling him that his line is “There’s plenty of room at the inn”. Despite all of the harassment, Jep steps up and delivers. He NAILS his line. I never had any doubt.

Some memorable lines from the show:

  • “These things are swollen like watermelons.” – Willie “I love watermelon? You got watermelon?” – Godwin
  • “A wise man would say satche...

Willie Robertson’s Beard Maintenance Tips

If you’ve grown a beard for No Shave November and have become so accustomed to it that you’re going to keep it, Willie Robertson has some beard maintenance advice for you.  In an interview with Parade magazine earlier this year, Willie offered up this jewel:

Willie Robertson – Without and With Beard

“I just run my fingers through it, stick my head out the window to dry it off after showering, and roll with it. I condition my hair, so whatever ends up dripping down into it is conditioned. It’s softer than you would think.”

So there you have it.  Apparently it works too.  Jennifer Nettles, at the CMA Country Christmas show, after sniffing Willie’s beard,  said that it smelled lovely.

Jennifer is not the only woman fond of Willie’s beard...

Willie Robertson Performs at CMA Country Christmas

ON the CMA Country Christmas show on ABC last night, Willie Robertson paired up with Luke Bryan to sing “Hairy Christmas”. Before the performance, Bryan joked that the Robertson men had nice smelling beards and Jennifer Nettles sniffed Willie’s beard and confirmed that it did indeed smell like “Febreeze”.

Bryan appears as a guest vocalist on the Robertson’s “Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas”. I guess Willie figured he’d better repay the favor and appear with Luke at the CMA Country Christmas. Willie doesn’t sound too bad, although I bet he never would have been on that stage if it weren’t for the huge popularity of his show.

Here’s an audio clip of Willie and his family explaining how they were invited to the show:

Everything’s Better with a Beard Book Coming

It seems the Robertson clan can’t stop writing.  They’ve already penned 5 books and had 3 more in the queue for 2014.  Now it has been revealed that they are writing a kid’s books.   The book,  written by Si, Willie, Phil, Jase, Jep and Alan Robertson, will be a photographic picture book with the message that everything – including rubber ducks and trucks – is better with a little facial hair.  Its called “Everything’s Better with a Beard”.

everything-better-with-beardWillie Robertson said  “We’re proud to now have books with our names on them to add to the collection, and we’re happy to promote beards any time we get a chance.”  The book is scheduled to be release by Simon and Schuster in March of 2014.

This has the potential to be bigger than Dr. Seuss!
