Counting On dad Jim Bob Duggar likes to have everything under his control. In fact, TLC fans think he might go a little too far with his tracking and monitoring of his adult kids. But now, it appears like his teaching and plans may have backfired on him.
Counting On: Jim Bob Duggar Teaches Daughters to Obey
Jim Bob Duggar’s kids have all fallen in line with his teaching pretty well. Except for one particularly rebellious Duggar girl – Jill Duggar Dillard. Jill hadn’t has anything to do with her Counting On family now, and she and her husband, Derick Dillard, aren’t allowed at the big house without Jim Bob being there.
Counting On critics had a good laugh recently saying that Jim Bob Duggar did this to himself. He doesn’t like the things that Jill does, but he actually introduced her and Derick. Fans said they doubt he thought the quiet Derick Dillard would cause so much trouble.
Now, Jill Duggar is doing just what her father, Jim Bob, taught her to do. And that’s to obey her husband. Derick doesn’t think her family is a good influence on her. And they came together on the decision that they would no longer be on the TLC’s Counting On.
Jill Duggar Breaks Jim Bob’s Rules
After the Josh Duggar scandal, the network booted 19 and Counting. Not only that, they didn’t show Jim Bob Duggar much at all – if any. The new show, Counting On was started to be all about Jessa Duggar Seewald and Jill Duggar Dillard.
Now, since Jill left Counting On, it’s more about all of the family. And viewers say they notice Jim Bob sneaking his way into the show more and more. Fans said it almost like the scandal didn’t happen.
Even though Jill isn’t on the show anymore, people still pay attention to what she says. And she isn’t quiet about how her parents don’t like her wearing pants, her nose piercing, drinking alcohol, and other major no-nos. She said it is hard for her to go against her parents, but now she doesn’t let it bother her as much.
Counting On: Family Drama Sells
Some fans of Counting On think that the family drama is good for the Duggar’s finances. They think that both Jim Bob and Jill are making some money off of the rift. In fact, one fan said that Jill Duggar shares all of their dirty laundry in order to make money – and it seems like Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth agrees since she liked that post.
Counting On father Jim Bob even got a new toy not long ago that raised some eyebrows. After seeing the rather pricey Spyder, it had viewers thinking they are raking in the money. And as far as Jill, she had plenty of money to go on a trip to Florida not long ago.
Whatever the case, fans hope they can work it out. And if they can’t, it seems like both Jim Bob and daughter Jill are okay with not being okay again.
