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.

Jep Robertson of Duck Dynasty suffered a seizure whole on a hunting trip over the weekend, but despite that health scare, he is expected to recover fully.

He was rushed to the hospital after the incident, according to insiders.

Jep Robertson Hospitalized

The youngest of Phil Robertson's four sons, 35-year-old Jep had his brother Willie Robertson by his side as he was taken in for treatment after collapsing.

He's currently being treated with antibiotics for possible infections that may have triggered the seizure as he remains hospitalized for further testing.

Says the Duck Dynasty cast member's rep in a statement Sunday:

"Jep was rushed to the hospital and received immediate treatment. He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital for additional tests and observation."

That doesn't mean it's an easy thing for her, though.

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."

The lovably awkward John Luke Robertson, eldest son of Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson, is engaged! To girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn!

Yes, John Luke is old enough to do so, although certainly younger than most people who pop the question: Robertson proposed on his 19th birthday!

  • John Luke Robertson, Fiancee

The youngster couldn't wait to share the happy news on Saturday.

"I am so excited to marry my best friend," John Luke says. "I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what 'could be' to me."

"Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us."

The reality star and his bride-to-be also celebrated on Instagram.

McEacharn posted a photo on her account flashing her new bling as her fiance held up the sign reading "Future Mrs. Robertson" with an arrow pointing to her.

When the Liam Payne nude photo scandal erupted earlier this week, the One Direction singer didn't exactly handle it in the smoothest fashion.

Liam's insistence that he's "100% NOT gay" struck some fans as a bit homophobic.

Now it looks like we should brace ourselves for more politically incorrect blame avoidance, as Liam is involved in yet another photo controversy, and this time, there's no denying that he's the one in the pic:

Liam Payne Gun Photo

Liam and a friend visited the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame this week and some fans did not react kindly to the sight of Liam holding a firearm.

"It's not funny to hold a gun, because every day thousands of people die by gunfire," tweeted one young fan.

"Thanks for glamorizing America's gun crisis that literally kills countless numbers of innocent people every day," wrote another.

Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame is at it yet again. Promoting his latest book unPHILtered this week, he weighed in on topics such as AIDS and sexual morality.

We can sense your collective cringing before you've even read the quotes.

The uproar last December over Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments to GQ has evidently not deterred him in the least from discussing all things homosexuality.

Speaking on Tony Perkins’ Christian-themed radio show, Phil mused:

“Is this coincidental that all of the immoral conduct America is now participating in ... Do you think it’s a coincidence that these debilitating - literally that can cause death - diseases follow that kind of conduct?"

"God says, ‘One woman, one man,’ and everyone says, ‘Oh, that’s old hat, that’s that old Bible stuff.' But I’m thinking, well let’s see now."

"A clean guy - a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman - they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them."

"They’re not going to get chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe."
