Duck Dynasty's Si Robertson, fondly called "Uncle Si" by viewers, makes it to the semifinals in Yahoo TV's Greatest Reality TV Personalities. He was picked as the winner for the category Best Comic Relief, and now he is pitted against winners from seven other categories for the championship.
Yahoo TV initiated the Greatest Reality TV Personalities to celebrate the stars of various reality shows that people have come to love over the years. It is also meant to celebrate the 15th anniversary of "Survivor," which many consider to have propelled reality TV shows into the mainstream.
The winners of the "competiton" will be determined by poll voting. As of Tuesday, Uncle Si falls into third place with 18 percent votes. Gordon Ramsay leads the poll with 48 percent votes followed by Spencer Pratt with 26 percent votes. Kim Kardashian lands at fourth place with 8 percent votes.
According to Yahoo TV, Uncle Si makes the cut because of his witty remarks that viewers enjoy. He is known to have so much wisdom, and the way he tackles ideas and pours out his unpredicatably comedic quotes has given birth to a new term - "Si-cology."
Among the characters in "Duck Dynasty," Uncle Si is arguably the most hilarious. His funny comments are adored by viewers who delight in the show's clean humor, which is a breath of fresh air in reality TV.
Some of his remarks on TV have become popular quotes, such as "Calling your girlfriend your 'lady friend' is a great way to let everyone know you both met on Craigslist."
"I am the MacGyver of cooking. If you bring me a piece of bread, cabbage, coconut, mustard greens, pigs feet, pine cones ... and a woodpecker, I'll make you a good chicken pot pie," he also said in an old episode.
In a more recent episode, he gave a comment about 50 shades of grey.
"Hey, last week we spent 3 hours talkin' about fifty shades of grey. Myself, i like charcoal grey. Martin, he's into slate grey."
Whatever needs to be done, Uncle Si has made it clear that he is not the person to ask for advice when he said one of his famous lines.
"Hey, you want something done right, don't ask me."
He also put cheese in its proper place.
"Hey, if ya ask me, cheese has no business being in a turkey sandwich."
Whatever new antics or quips he may surprise viewers with in the future, one thing is sure: Uncle Si has won a spot in the hearts of many, whether or not he gets to be champion in Yahoo TV's Greatest Reality TV Personalities. And that's a fact, Jack!
