There are people who got to know Korie and Willie Robertson better than their oldest son, John Luke Robertson. This is understandable since he basically became famous through the TV series Duck Dynasty in the glory of his family.
John Luke Robertson Bio, Age
The son of popular stars Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson, John Luke Robertson was born on October 11, 1995, in West Monroe, Louisiana. He grew up together with his 4 siblings Sadie, Bella, Lil Will, and Rebecca.
For his education, John Robertson attends Liberty University, a Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia. It is also the university that his wife Mary Kate Robertson attends. John began studying there after graduating from West Monroe Louisiana High School.
The duck dynasty star was a youth group leader in his church during his high school years. Now he is studying Camping Outdoor and Adventure Leadership at the university.
When he was 14 years old, he joined the Duck Dynasty on A&E. The show was created by his family in 2012 to portray the life of the Robertson family and their Duck Commander. The show rose to become one of the biggest reality TV shows in America. During the 4th season, it reached 11.8 million viewers. With this audience rating, Duck Dynasty earned its place as the most-watched non-fiction cable series and broke all previous records.
Interestingly, before breaking the record, the previous seasons of Duck Dynasty had also set a record of 9.6 million viewers, a record the station had never seen before. That means it could even beat shows like American Idol.
Although this is the family that John Luke Robertson comes from, he has stated that he is trying to live a life that is more than just making money. To that end, he decided to become a writer. His first book, “Be your own Duck Commander”, was published in 2014. The four-volume fiction series, which is aimed at young people, includes the following books: Willie’s Redneck Time Machine, Si in Space, Jase and The Deadliest Hunter, and Phil and the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca. He has also published another book, Young and Beardless: The Search for God, Meaning and Purpose, and a Meaningful Life.
Contrary to what you would expect from a 19-year-old celebrating his birthday, John Luke Robertson took the time on that day to propose to his then-girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn in 2014. The duo entered into the bond of marriage on June 27, 2015, when John was only 20 years old.
According to him, he only followed in the footsteps of his parents, who married when they were very young. Mary Kate McEacharn and the reality show star were together for 6 months before they decided to spend the rest of their lives together at an event on the family farm in Louisiana.
According to Radar Online, Mary Kate was not the first relationship he was in because he had dated someone before meeting and settling down with the woman he now called his best friend. However, for the beautiful woman, she stated that she had never had a relationship with anyone before her husband, because she had always been looking for someone with high standards, and she found that in young Robertson.
Net Worth and House
Thanks to his appearance in the reality TV series Duck Dynasty, John Luke Robertson has not only made a name for himself but also made a considerable fortune. He is said to have a net worth estimated at around 400,000 to 600,000 dollars. This considerable fortune is generated both by the exhibition and by his other undertakings, especially his book.
The exact payment he receives per episode of the series is not known, but it has been reported that after a salary dispute that nearly put the series out of business, over $200,000 per episode was paid, to be split among the cast of the series, which consists of 11 children and 9 adults.
The Robertson family, who made their fortune by making duck calls, has an estimated net worth of $400 million. It is expected that John will soon see a higher increase in his income.
For the future, John says he plans to build a house with his wife.
