No matter if they’re wearing a flannel or sporting a mullet, redneck celebrities always manage to bring laughs. From Jeff Foxworthy’s divorced parents and Aileen Wuornos’ country charmer ways, these country bad boys will forever be remembered for their offbeat humor.
Hollywood has long demonized rednecks as inbreeds and morons; but recently we’re starting to see more redneck celebrities emerge in mainstream culture.
Early Life and Education
Robbie Redneck rose above poverty by working hard and becoming well known in his community and beyond. For his efforts he received numerous awards and recognitions.
Foxworthy is known for writing several books including You Might Be a Redneck If as well as producing popular comedy albums. He regularly appears on Space Ghost Coast to Coast as well as numerous movies and TV shows.
Redneck reality television has seen a boom in recent years. Shows featuring redneck characters can be found across A&E, Animal Planet, CMT, Discovery, History and TLC networks such as Duck Dynasty on A&E (which chronicles a family that makes millions selling duck calls), Swamp People on History (30-day alligator hunting season in Louisiana) and Cajun Pawn Stars on History (backwoods ways and southern cliches aplenty).
Achievement and Honors
Hollywood has long depicted rednecks as bigots and inbreeds; recent TV shows like Duck Dynasty and Swamp People demonstrate this stereotype’s falsity. Even before these new television stars emerged, rednecks made an impactful statement about America through movies, music videos and sports: Forrest Gump perfectly personified these characteristics of redneck culture: dumb yet smart yet loyal with unfailing support – characteristics associated with being redneck.
Below is a list of some of the most renowned redneck celebrities. Some have reached celebrity status through acting while others have achieved prominence as stand-up comedians or MMA fighters; many of these individuals have even won various accolades and awards during their careers. Some celebrities have even gone on to become entrepreneurs or philanthropists themselves!
Rednecks provide an effective balance to celebrity gossip: their stories resonate with middle-class America and make us feel less alone about our experiences.
Reality television is full of rural-themed shows such as Buckwild, Hillybilly Handfishin’ on Animal Planet and Swamp People on History Channel; TLC also hosts Here Comes Honey Boo Boo with its tiny beauty queen protagonist and her boisterous family from South Carolina.
Stand-up comedians such as Brent Terhune are another form of comedy entertainment; since he was 16, his videos about being a redneck have gone viral, convincing many commenters they are watching an actual comedy show rather than something silly like YouTube videos.
