Duck Dynasty’s Jase Robertson revealed how he convinced wife Missy to eat frog.
“I’m not a trophy type hunter in any way. We were raised on the river bank, and we were extremely poor. We commercial-fished the river for money. We lived off the land. Ninety percent of the meals we had growing up were from the woods and the water,” Jase Robertson said.
“I only deer hunt for food. The big bucks that everybody’s after, they don’t taste near as good as some of the others.”
Jase Robertson has had fun with his wife Missy, who was not raised killing her own food. One time he brought home frog and convinced her to eat it by telling her it was chicken.
After eating the meal, Missy Robertson told Jase: “That was the greatest chicken I ever ate. What did you do to it?”
“Well, you just ate frog,” Jase Robertson replied.
Jase Robertson said that their newfound fame hasn’t changed how the family interacts with each other or their values.
“We’re not into things. What can you buy? What can you do? If you’re happy with the people you’re with, to me, that’s what matters,” he said.
“We’re enjoying the ride. It’s a good thing. We use [our fame] as a platform to share our faith. We go around and try to make a positive impact on our world and use our notoriety to do that.”
Duck Dynasty, a half-hour reality TV show, debuted in 2012 and follows the Robertson’s family’s lives in Louisiana.
