'Duck Dynasty' contest searching for look-alikes

Posted: March 29, 2013 - 7:54pm

VILONIA — You don’t have to be a mirror image to enter a Duck Dynasty cast look-alike contest sponsored by the Museum of Veterans and Military History in Vilonia.

The contest, said Sherry Clements of the Veterans Museum, is a family event “just like the (television) show is family-oriented.” Duck Dynasty airs at 9 p.m., Wednesdays on A&E, showcasing the Robertson family from West Monroe, Louisiana who became wealthy in their family business, making and selling duck calls.

“We have Vietnam Veterans who volunteer and come to the museum who especially get a kick out of Si and his antics,” said Sherry Clements of the Museum. “The show is just a good family show, so we just tied the two together for a fundraiser.”

Set for May 11 at the Senior Citizens building in Vilonia, the event will begin at 5:30 p.m., including a Family Supper of catfish and the fixings prepared by D&L Catering at a cost of $13 each. To enter the look-alike contest, the cost is $20 per person. That event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Wigs and beards are permitted and you may opt to enter looking like any member of the cast including the women folks, Clements said. There will be three categories of judging including clothes, hair and general appearance. Each contestant will also be asked a question regarding the show.

To round out the event, the judges will be dressed in similar costumes. Mayor James aka “Mountain Man” Firestone will emcee the event. While the evening is all about having fun, the winner of the Look-A-Like contest will take home $300; second place, $100 and third place, $50, Clements said. The proceeds from the event will go to the museum. The deadline for entering is May 6. For information, call 501-796-8181 or 501-690-1193.

Have you seen the pictures of

Have you seen the pictures of the guys before the beards? What a shame, they all used to be so good looking.

But I gotta admit, the show does make me chuckle on occasion.

I have to admit

I caught an episode where they showed some younger pictures of a couple of them and I was shocked. I would not have recognized them from the pictures I saw.
