Duck Dynasty’s Willie, Jep and Si Robertson stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Monday and shared which Robertson didn’t have faith in their future.
“We always thought there may be something there,” Willie Robertson said of the enthusiasm he and his brothers had about the family business making it on the boob tube one day.
“We just got an email out of the blue that said, <<Hey, I think you guys may have a big show>>. So I went to talk to dad. I said, <<Dad, we could do a big show on a network>>.”
Willie Robertson revealed his father responded: “Nah. That won’t work.”
“I remind him of that every week,” Willie Robertson said with a laugh.
But if anyone deserves credit for the show’s success, it’s Uncle Si Robertson.
“I’m the most important part of this whole thing!” he insisted.
Si Robertson proved how important he is elsewhere in New York on Monday when he and his nephews sat in the front row at the Sherri Hill Fashion Week runway show.
The show also featured another Roberston, Si Robertson’s model niece Sadie.
Duck Dynasty airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on A&E.
