‘Counting On’: Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald Let Kids Eat Grubs

Counting On‘s Jessa Duggar Seewald and Ben Seewald grossed out fans recently when she shared she let her kids eat grubs. Jessa’s little ones want to be like Bear Grylls on Man Vs. Wild.

Counting On: Jessa Duggar Seewald Offers Grubs

It seems like Jessa Duggar Seewald does not follow along with the beliefs of her parents on television. Since Jessa’s kids watch the British adventurer, it doesn’t seem like they have too many restrictions. When they were watching the show, Jessa Duggar from Counting On asked the kids if they’d like to eat a grub.

Henry Seewald looked at her wildly and didn’t look impressed. But Spurgeon Seewald said that he would eat it if they cooked them. Their Dad, Ben Seewald, hid some gummy worms he had dipped in chocolate powder. And he acted like he was eating a grab out of the dirt.

The kids did not want to eat it. And Ivy said, “Yuck.” When they saw Ben Seewald eating the “grub,” they didn’t want to have any part in it.

Henry Doesn’t Believe His Parents

Even after Counting On star Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald told the kids these grubs were really just gummies, TLC’s Henry didn’t believe them. He backed away when they offered to wash the worm off. Finally, they had to go get the bag out and show him it was really candy.

Spurgeon got the joke pretty quickly. But Henry didn’t trust the worm, and he didn’t want to try it out for himself. When he did get a candy worm, he was still looking at it like he wasn’t sure if he should eat it or not.

It’s likely that he’ll be checking out all of his candy in the future. In fact, Jessa of Counting On asked him if that was a good joke and didn’t want to answer. He still seemed like he was trying to figure out what was going on.

Counting On: Spurgeon Seewald Is Ready for More

On the other hand, Spurgeon thought the grub hunt was a lot of fun. Since he’s a little older, it made a lot more sense to him. He understood Ben of Counting On hid candy outside and pretended to eat a worm. Now it all made sense why Ben didn’t want to eat a snail he found outside.

Spurgeon Seewald showed the little trap he made outside. He said he was making a trap, so if a little animal got in there, he could get it. It does seem like he’s been watching a lot of survival television.

These little cuties had a fun adventure with Jessa and Ben. Everyone was glad Jessa Duggar let her kids know it was a joke. You can see more of Counting On Tuesday nights at 8 pm on TLC.
