Billy Nungesser Set to Appear on A&E’s “Statue Flippers”

BATON ROUGE — Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser’s office announced today that Louisiana’s second in command will appear on an upcoming episode of the A&E network’s reality show Statue Flippers.

Buoyed by the recent surge of Confederate monument removals in cities across the South, Statue Flippers chronicles attempts by conservative politicians and citizens committees to buy back the deposed statues, overhaul them, and sell them for a profit.

Given the former Plaquemines Parish president’s eBay savvy, knack for running side hustles, and post as pre-eminent tourism ambassador for the state, the role seems like a rare perfect fit.

A preview screening of the episode showed Nungesser drafting a bid for the P.G.T. Beauregard monument, thinking through upgraded accessories such as an authentically crafted military saber and a live chestnut bay horse. The Republican also is seen setting up an American Express vendor account under the pseudonym “Dilly Fungesser.”

In between bites of a meatball Parmesan po-boy, Nungesser said, “Thanks to A&E, I am happy to carry on the proud tradition, begun by Duck Dynasty, of accurately and positively representing Louisiana people and Louisiana values to the [gratuitous burping] … world.”
