Tonight is the 2013 Miss USA pageant from the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada and one of the all-star judges is Duck Dynasty star Jessica Robertson, wife of the youngest Robertson brother, Jep. The announcement combined with Jessica’s BOOM POW good looks had us wondering if she herself was a pageant gal, so we asked her.
“Sadly I was not,” Jessica told us on Twitter. “Homecoming court was as close to a pageant as I got,” she adds.
Her statement got us a bit curious so we did a little research and came up with the above photos of Jessica Robertson from her high school homecoming court during her freshman and senior years! Jessica herself posted the photo on instagram soon after a homecoming-themed episode of Duck Dynasty along with the caption, “In honor of last nights homecoming court episode. My freshman and senior court pics back in the day at West Monroe high School. @sadierob, the styles have improved! #duckdynasty”
And here’s another photo of her participating in homecoming court on the football field!
As it turns out, Jessica never got into the pageant scene due in part to a characteristic she shares with most of the Robertson boys. “I was really big into athletics! she reveals.”
I dunno – I think Jessica could still pull it off, don’t you?
Despite not coming from a pageant background, Jessica is thrilled to be part of tonight’s Miss USA Pageant, exclaiming “I’m so excited!” about the opportunity.
Jessica will be at the Pageant alongside other all-star judges including The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes, eccentric fashion designer Betsey Johnson, and NFL Pro Bowl MVP receiver Larry Fitzgerald among many others.
