Duck Dynasty and Dancing With the Stars cast member Sadie Robertson isn't shying away from media reports comparing her to the Duggar family members.

If anything, she welcomes being talked about in the same sentence.

The 17-year-old survived this week's Dancing With the Stars results show and is on to the final four, where she will battle for the Mirror Ball trophy.

Given her upbringing and somewhat unorthodox road to stardom, Sadie Robertson is also sparking a great deal of media interest beyond her dancing abilities.

Specifically, some people want to compare her to the Duggar family.

If you watch Duck Dynasty or watch 19 Kids and Counting online, you know that both popular reality shows center around a conservative Christian family.

Both family patriarchs have sparked some controversy, as well.

The Robertsons are back and better than ever on A&E, and Wednesday's Duck Dynasty Season 7 Episode 1 saw them embark on a truly epic journey.

To Scotland! Duck Commander CEO, Duck Dynasty Executive Producer, Father of Five and Certified Boss Hog Willie Robertson had to go there on business.

What's the point of having a TV show if you can't bring the family along, as they've shown fans before and you know if you watch Duck Dynasty online?

Exactly. And Scotland offered the added intrigue of helping the Louisiana family reconnect with its ancestral roots in Duck Dynasty Season 7 Episode 1.

The one-hour installment was titled “Glory Is the Reward of Mallard," an ode to the both the clan's Scottish lineage and its current Louisiana lifestyle.

There is some culture shock, predictably. Scotland features much colder weather than the Duck Commander crew is used to back in West Monroe.

As expected, the family dons kilts, which leads to some memorable exchanges, and partakes in fishing and golfing as well as their area of expertise.

Team Quack Attack is on its way to the Dancing With the Stars finals!

Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson had never danced outside of her bedroom prior to joining the cast, but she and Mark Ballas have made it to the end of Season 19.

A lot of people are rooting for the A&E reality star to take the Mirror Ball title, which certainly helps, along with Mark's amazing choreography this season.

The teenager still gets plenty of credit, though, and no one is more proud (albeit a little surprised) than her adoring parents, Willie and Korie Robertson.

"I definitely got overwhelmed there," Duck Dynasty star Willie says of watching 17-year-old Sadie take the floor on the ABC show. "There was a tear or two."

Korie is surprised that she's even taking part, let alone so brilliantly, as she showcased once again Monday on the Dancing With the Stars semifinals.

A Duck Dynasty musical has been given the green light.

No... really!

The Robertson Family

Titled The Duck Commander Family Musical, the play will reportedly be based on "The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty," a book by Willie and Korie Robertson.

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.

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.

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.
