NEW YORK -- If you're not one of the millions of people tuned into the A&E reality series "Duck Dynasty," each week, you might just work in a New York City hotel.
The stars of the humor-filled series about the family-run Duck Commander company in Monroe, La., were guests on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" while on a media tour this week. Jase Robertson explained that just as soon as they arrived in the Big Apple, a hotel employee had tossed him out because he mistook him for a homeless man.
“The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” the heavily bearded Robertson said, jokingly calling it a case of “facial profiling.”
He went on to explain: “I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice. He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.' So I circled back around and my wife said, ‘What happened?’ and I just said I just got kicked out.”
The show's popularity has also led to Internet buzz that brother Willie Robertson will be making a run for Congress. "I just heard that," he says of the rumor. "I actually just read that I'm leading in the polls as well."
During the visit to the "Live" set, the Robertsons also addressed which of them may be working on a singing career and talked about the upcoming holiday album, "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas," due out Oct. 29. With 11.8 million fans hearing the call of this week's season four premiere of the show, the episode became the most-watched nonfiction series telecast in the history of cable television.
