Season 6 of ‘Duck Dynasty’ kicked off on June 11 with a very special visit from the governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, who was on hand to give Duck Commander the very first Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence. What an honor!
The Robertsons were on their best behavior during the Season 6 premiere of Duck Dynasty, as they excitedly prepared for the arrival of Gov. Bobby Jindal! Willie was busy trying to wrangle his employees into cleaning up the warehouse, while his son John Luke wrote a “tight” intro for Gov. Jindal, and Miss Kay gave Phil a sexy fashion show as she searched for the perfect outfit for the big day.
‘Duck Dynasty’ Season 6 Premiere: Gov. Bobby Jindal Gives Willie An Award
In tonight’s episode, Gov. Bobby Jindal pays a visit to West Monroe, La. to meet the whole Duck Dynasty gang, and they couldn’t be more excited about it!
Willie, the CEO of Duck Commander, tries to get his employees to put on their Sunday best and clean up the warehouse before the governor’s arrival the next day but they’re not exactly getting with the program. “It’s a warehouse,” one of the guys argues as he makes himself comfortable on a box.
Not much luck there! Meanwhile, Willie’s oldest son, John Luke, is busy trying to write an amazing speech to introduce the governor at the awards ceremony. Willie doesn’t seem to have much faith in him — and who can blame him with John Luke testing out jokes like, “Why did the cow cross the road? To get to the udder side” — but John Luke promises his dad that he is “going to have the speech whipped in to shape by tomorrow.”
Back at Phil’s house, his wife, Miss Kay, is super excited to meet Gov. Jindal, and she models an outfit she picked out for the occasion for Phil. Phil hilariously says he’s “never heard of” the governor, and doesn’t seem to have any interest in Miss Kay’s fashion show either.
He gives her the thumbs up, but when she presses him for his real opinion, he says her top is “too shiny.” So Miss Kay goes shopping with Kori and Sadie and returns with a navy top with sheer polka dot sleeves and black slacks, among other exciting ensembles.
Miss Kay tries to get Phil’s attention but he just sits there in his arm chair, firing off thumbs ups, and saying, “That’s the one,” to every single outfit she tries on. She finally settles on a leopard blazer that Phil genuinely seems to like. “You’re like a tiger,” he says, making paw gestures. She replies that she’s going to “attack him later.” TMI, guys!
‘Duck Dynasty’ Season 6 Premiere: Gov. Bobby Jindal Shoots Hoops With The Robertsons
Gov. Jindal finally makes his grand entrance at the Duck Commander warehouse, and much to Willie’s surprise, the first thing he wants to do is play basketball with the guys.
“If you miss, I get a ride in Air Force One,” one of Willie’s employees bets Gov. Jindal as he aims for the basket. He doesn’t miss.
A little later, it’s time for the awards ceremony. John Luke steps up to the plate to introduce Bobby and makes an awkward joke — though not one that involves udders — but manages to deliver a pretty good intro about how his father has inspired him to work hard.
Gov. Jindal takes the stand and presents Willie with the Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence, saying, “This is a great family business.”
Yay for the Robertsons!
