Counting On‘s Jeremiah Duggar just made a major career achievement. And it looks like he is passing up his parents, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar. His mom said he is, for sure, passing her up.
Counting On: Jeremiah Duggar Moves Out
Jeremiah Duggar of Counting On recently moved out of the big house. Many of the children live at home for years after becoming adults to save money. But Jeremiah and his twin brother Jedidiah thought it was time to leave Jim Bob and Michelle’s nest at 21.
Viewers of Counting On watched Jeremiah Duggar host the “dadchular” for John David Duggar. And everyone gave him grief because they only had steak to eat. Michelle Duggar shared her shock that Jim Bob Duggar and the boys only had steak – without salad or sides.
It seems like he is ready to get out on his own. With his twin running for state representative, it seems like Jeremiah is ready to make a career move. And he’s following in dad Jim Bob and mom Michelle’s footsteps.
Jeremiah Makes His Mark
Being the 11th out of 19 kids, Jeremiah Duggar had to do something to make his mark. Counting On star, Jeremiah got his real estate license just like Jim Bob Duggar and matriarch Michelle Duggar. His brother, TLC’s Joseph Duggar, also has his license.
Many of the Duggar boys have their own businesses at a young age. Some work with Counting On patriarch Jim Bob primarily and others have their own businesses without their dad. But most of them do something related to land development or building, and it looks like Jeremiah is following suit. In fact, his mom, Michelle said he’s passing her up with his business prowess.
Jeremiah took his GED at age 17, and the family celebrated the event. Now he’s 21, and he’s ready to step out in his own career. Many fans of Counting On shared their surprise that he isn’t courting someone yet.
Counting On: This Big Family Sticks Together
It’s not uncommon for the Counting On family to do deals and work together. The fact that Jeremiah moved out of Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar’s house with his brother before courting was a little odd for the family. Despite moving out, it looks like he’s still close with his father Jim Bob, and his mother Michelle.
Jeremiah has experience with real estate and building homes. In fact, the family built most of the big house they have in Springdale, Arkansas. When the Counting On crew realized they were in over their head, they opted to bring in some professionals to help.
The home is a refuge for the family, and they have a great time having big events. Jeremiah Duggar and his siblings that don’t live there still spend a lot of time there visiting Michelle and Jim Bob.
