Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas are cruising toward the Dancing With the Stars finals, as the Duck Dynasty star has emerged as a bona fide contender.

One that might not be stopped, given the 17-year-old's talent and the groundswell of support coming from her family and fans in West Monroe, La.

The paso doble dance she performed Monday earned 30 of 40 points from the show’s four judges, the duo’s worst score this season. Not that you'd know it.

Fans enthusiastically cheered the Quack Attack on social media, as one of the likable cast members on one of the biggest cable shows ever gained support.

While millions watch Duck Dynasty online and on A&E, the show has been criticized for perpetuating stereotypes of the south and for the family's conservative beliefs.

Clearly Dancing With the Stars was savvy enough to weave the popular show into the competition’s narrative this season, however, and its ratings prove it.

Sadie Robertson's Dancing With the Stars costumes and performances have come as a surprise to the Duck Dynasty star's famous family as much as fans.

We've heard Willie Robertson approves her outfits to ensure that his 17-year-old daughter covers up and wear things that are in keeping with her conservative values.

Sadie's 19-year-old brother, John Luke Robertson, says this rumor is true.

John Luke, the author of the Be Your Own Duck Commander book series, says Sadie has "been doing really well" in the dancing competition thus far.

"We're so proud of her," he said of the Duck Dynasty family.

Sadie's DWTS performances have, as John Luke put it, "surprised us all" from the start, but he's bullish on her winning it all this fall and for good reason.

She's yet to be in jeopardy on a Dancing With the Stars results show, and is consistently in the top tier. With eight stars left on the show, who knows.

The 17-year-old admits she's having a tough time dealing with her decision to preserve her virginity, even though it's a choice she is sure is right for her.

One of this fall's best Dancing with the Stars competitors discussed what that means for Blake Coward, whom she has been dating for 10 months.

“People are like, ‘It must be easy for you because you’re Christian.’ That doesn’t make it any easier for me,” Sadie Robertson tells Us Weekly magazine.

“It’s something a couple really has to decide together.”

Fortunately for the daughter of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson, her beau shares her beliefs when it comes to pre-marital sex.

Sadie Robertson stuck to her Christian values while performing the rumba on Dancing With the Stars, proving that those two aren't mutually exclusive.

Check out the stunning 17-year-old's elegant performance on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 8 Monday night and see what we mean:

A dance style known for its sometimes sexual nature, the rumba from the Duck Dynasty youngster brought her judges, fans and family to tears.

In a good way.

Before the dance, Robertson was seen during rehearsals expressing her concerns, noting that she didn’t want the performance to “come off as sexy.”

“I hope this week, it doesn’t come off as sexy, but it comes off as sweet,” she said. “It’s just so awkward to me, and when I get awkward, I laugh a lot.”

Aww.

Dancing With the Stars cast member Sadie Robertson might not be quite as conservative as, say, Jill and Jessa Duggar, but there are some similarities for sure.

Her father, Duck Dynasty star and executive producer Willie Robertson, gives the final approval to all of the 17-year-old's Dancing With the Stars costumes!

So far, Boss Hog hasn't had any problems with Sadie's looks, including a jungle-inspired feathered frock, a sophisticated gown and a fun fringed number last week.

Will her Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 8 look change that trend this evening? We're not sure, but it sounds like she's going to be stunning.

"I feel like a ballerina in it," Sadie says. "It's so beautiful. I love it."

Designed by costume designer Daniela Gschwendtner, Sadie will wear the dress during her Rumba to "Diamonds" by Rihanna with partner Mark Ballas.

Sounds like that could be a mildly sensual number ... hmm.

Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson has been making quite a name for herself on a different show this season, surging to the top tier on Dancing With the Stars.

The 17-year-old high school student has had plenty of support from father Willie, uncles Jase and Jep, and newly-engaged brother John Luke Robertson.

Last week, a duck call-inspired samba earned Sadie and pro partner Mark Ballas a nearly perfect score of 37 out of 40, putting her near the lead on Season 19.

The routine, like everything in her life, was centered around family and faith.

Sadie says her life has been turned upside down since Duck Dynasty debuted on A&E, and while it's given her a lot of new opportunities, it has its drawbacks.

"I was 14 and didn't realize how big it was going to be," she said of the last few years. "But there's definitely been some bad things about being in the public eye."

Alfonso Ribeiro looked to his past for inspiration last night, and what came of it was the best score among all of Monday's Dancing With the Stars results.

Ribeiro, who starred from 1990-96 as Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, performed his self-styled dance from that show, “The Carlton.”

With the theme of Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 6 being "Most Memorable Year," he couldn't put it off any longer, even if it's bittersweet.

Rebeiro feels Carlton halted, rather than helped, his career development.

“I was pigeon-holed as an actor based on that character,” he lamented.

“There were years," he added, "when casting directors wouldn't call me because they felt like, ‘Oh, well, he’s Carlton, and that’s not right for this role.’”

But Ribeiro says he has learned to embrace Carlton, dance and all.
