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.
