‘Duck Dynasty’ To Feature New, Beardless Robertson Brother

Duck Dynasty Getting New Robertson Brother

Duck Dynasty is getting a little less hairy.

Alan Robertson, the oldest son of Phil and Kay, is joining the hit reality show starting in August. He looks a bit — actually, a lot — different than his younger siblings, who all sport a scraggly, long-bearded look. Instead Alan is clean-shaven and tends to dress in nice business attire rather than the hunting camo his brothers seem to prefer.

Joining Duck Dynasty will destroy a bit of the anonymity that Alan Robertson has built up. Still, he seems ready to join the hit A&E show and start working at the family’s multi-million dollar company, Duck Commander.

“The beards are so iconic,” he told the New York Post, “All this time I’ve been flying under the radar; I can go to Starbucks and get Mama coffee.”

Robertson is a 47-year-old minister who has been preaching full-time at his Louisiana church rather than joining his family on the show. But on Duck Dynasty Alan sees a chance to share his faith with the show’s scores of viewers — 9.6 million tuned in for the season finale.

“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,” he said.

It will mark the beginning of a busy few months for the Robertson family. The new season debuts in August, and in November the family will be releasing a Christmas album. The album, Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, will be released through Universal Music Group Nashville.

Alan Robertson said he had to put a lot of thought into whether he would join Duck Dynasty, but ultimately decided that because his children were grown it wouldn’t invade on their privacy.

    Well, if the show's going to go all religious on us I'll be watching something else.

    And I have to add, he's not joining the show to "spread the word". It's just occurred to him how much money he's been missing out on. Let's be real.

    I hope the show doesn't focus on him "ministering" to people, or I'll be changing the channel.

    Sounds to me like he finally realized that he has been making peanuts comparing to his family doing the reality show. He is leaving the church for $$$$$ not to minister. Ministry does not belong to reality shows. He could have been honest and said hey! I want to make big bucks, not come up with a lame excuse of ministering to the fans. Is he doing it for free? What a load of garbage…..
