Duck Dynasty enjoyed a run of 11 seasons on the network A&E. If you ask us, this is enough evidence we need to figure out that the reality TV program was beloved by many. Without it, none of us would have been able to keep up with the Louisiana family called the Robertsons. The clan is known for their religious faith and duck hunting business empire. Some people simply dismissed them as the new Beverly Hillbillies, but we think that their beards are enough reason to go wild! One of the Robertsons recently decided it was time for the big shave… what could have led to this?
Jase is one of the Robertson brothers and a fan favorite on the show. He is best known for his bushy beard and clever comments. He recently informed his fans that he would finally be waving goodbye to his incredible beard. No one could have foreseen what would come from the transformation. Even Missy, his wife, was shocked by the result!
The Robertson Patriarch
The patriarch of the Robertson clan would be none other than Phil Robertson. He was the one who founded the incredibly successful duck calling company. A talented footballer when he was still a student at Louisiana Tech, he was even offered a roster spot on the NFL. Isn’t it amazing that he turned down the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity because he wanted to focus on the duck hunting season instead? In 1973, he started his very own duck call company. Who knew it was the right decision?
Fame By Facial Hair
Most of the men in the Robertson family had long but very distinctive beards. At some point, it became a part of their lifestyle. The facial feature ended up becoming the trademark of the family, although it was a useful tool when it comes to hunting as well. The beards became so popular that it is hard to imagine they would willingly part with it. That is why fans could not believe the pledge that Jase made.
The Robertson Family
The show focuses on a number of members from the tight-knight family. Miss Kay and Phil Robertson, the matriarch and patriarch of the clan, tied the knot when she was just 15 years old! The two of them have four sons together: Alan, Willie, Jep, and Jase. All of the kids have since started their own families, but they are all part of the duck hunting business in their own ways. Many of the grandkids also went on to play huge parts on the show. Willie’s daughter even went on Dancing With The Stars at one point. Even though they are all close with one another, we can only wager a guess as to how they felt about Jase’s plan.
Duck Dynasty Dilemma
Would you say you are a big fan of Duck Dynasty? If that’s the case, you must know everything there is to know about the scandal. There was a time when Phil said something offensive when he talked to a certain magazine. After the comments came out, the series was suspended. Some people believe that it was this moment that started the ratings decline of the show, which led to its cancelation. Was this the reason Jase opted to get rid of his beard?
The Funny And Good-Looking One
Jase Robertson is the second kid among the progenies of Phil and Kay Robertson. Nowadays, he works as the COO of the family business. If you tuned in to Duck Dynasty, there is a good chance you think of him as the funniest and best looking of the boys. What could have made him decide to shave at last?
A Good Reason
Even though just about every Robertson man has a long and bushy beard, there is simply something fascinating about the one on Jase. It is one more reason a lot of his fans and relatives felt shocked after he made his announcement to get rid of it. However, people changed their mind after hearing that he was doing this for a worthy cause. We hope you are ready to hear all about it.
A Sad Day
One of the four homes not occupied by the boys go to John and Chrys Howard. They are the parents of Korie Robertson. They have become an important part of the clan and even showed up on Duck Dynasty a few times when the show was still running. Many fans of the show know them to be good parents as well as loving grandparents. When one of their cousins succumbed to cancer, the rest of the Robertson clan was there to provide them with the support and love they needed.
As we have said earlier, Korie and Willie Robertson were just kids when they met at summer camp. In fact, Chrys was working at Camp Ch-To-Ca at the time. She has always been a friend of the Robertsons. When her relative died, she posted a photo to honor her late cousin. The caption said, “This past week one of my cousins, Glenn Durham, lost his battle with cancer and gained his heavenly reward.” Let’s hope that the Robertsons have since come to terms with their loss. The only thing to do now is to move forward!
