Jindal Speaks on Appearance in 'Duck Dynasty' Premiere This Week

WEST MONROE -- New episodes of Duck Dynasty returned to television Wednesday night for its sixth season.

And Governor Bobby Jindal was featured in the very first episode this week.

It revolved around Jindal presenting the special state award to the Robertson family weeks ago in West Monroe.

He didn't show up until the very end of the episode, where the show featured Jindal giving a speech for that award.
We caught up with the governor on Thursday as he visited the ArkLaMiss --  he says his kids are huge Duck Dynasty fans.

"The family and I had a great time watching the show last night. I've got three young kids, especially the boys, they're 10 and 7. I joke that I've been governor for 6 and a half years, and I haven't really done a lot that has impressed them. This impressed them. They watch every episode multiple times, they memorize scenes."

Jindal says he feels like the Robertson family gives a good representation of Louisiana values to the rest of the country.

"I'm so proud of those guys, I think they exemplify Louisiana values. Great Louisiana family, great Louisiana  business. Sends the message out to millions of Americans that Louisiana is a great place to do business, a great place to raise a family, a great place to create jobs," he said.

Jindal added that he's been friends with the Roberstson family even before he was governor and even before the family had a show. 

"As the father of three young kids, I love the fact there's a show where you don't have to worry about the language, you don't have to worry about the images, you don't have to cover your kids eyes and ears when they watch the show, they can just enjoy it and the whole family can enjoy it," he said. "There's so much on TV today that's not appropriate for young kids. I'm glad there's at least this show where our kids can watch it with their parents."
