Yep, we knew it- now a Jill-flask back episode.

Lisa mcginess said...

tic makes this season ending like it is so big. people are waiting for some big announcement from them. what can it be nothing. maybe a courting? or jill or jesse having another baby? i am very sure jesse will not be adopting a child. they talk but they will not because no one would give them a child and they want a perfect child and most children you adopt will have problems and will be older?

Lydia said...

Stop the presses 2 cousins meet each other. The only cousins in the USA to meet according to the absurd & moronic lifestyles if the clueless Gothard worshipping Duggars.

Esther said...

Lol! Lydia, that is funny!

Ellyn said...

I recall when Jessa mentioned that Ben wants 15 sons & still plan to adopt. Most adoption agencies require one or both parents have a JOB - Duh! These two morons should open a business entitled "idiots are us" perhaps it would draw customers to see what stupid comments about life & the holocaust flow from the uneducated brains of Jessa. Even though Ben attendedi or graduated community college, when he speaks there's is zero evidence that he got through 6th grade. Very Unimpressed with these two who exhibit the manners of a Pig.

Here are the two little guys on Israel's birthday:

How careless to bring Spurg to a Zika infested area. It's bad enough Dillard allows his family to live there. Zika can cause painful muscle problems long after the initial attack. Also, aren't these girls trying to do as daddy says and get pregnant again? If so, why are then risking bring a child into the world with serious birth defects if that can be avoided. Well, maybe they are secretly avoiding pregnancy after going through the long, drugfree painful labor, C section and the dangerous home birthing of a huge baby without medical help. Seems like they would be pregnant again my now. The Duggars will risk their children for TLC ratings. It would be in the best interest of everyone if TLC cancelled this boring show.

Natasha said...

My guess: Jinger is courting and Jill and Derrick are coming home because she's expecting again. Maybe Jessa and Ben stay in their place to work on adopting?

Bertha said...

They must be desperate for material, we have seen this old tired story time and time again. I think TLC is scraping the pot with the last 2 episodes. Next they will be showing a down memory lane with JB and Michelle. I don't understand how they get any viewers with these rehash episodes.

CatMom said...

Does anyone else think that Jessa is the Nellie Olson of the Duggar Family? :)

CatMom said...

LOL! Denisean, I love that you said "flask-back." It made me think that we all need a flask of alcohol to watch this show! :)

Denisean said...

LOL, Catmom- I didn't even realize I did that.

Lydia said...

Yes Jessa is definitely the Nellie Olsen of the Duggars. I am sure she's quite proud of this comparison

Jamison said...

Since the Duggars supposedly now attend Cross Church. How do they reconcile time of the service. I am confident the minister & board of directors to not schedule service around "Duggar time". Jim Bob not that powerful, clever or intelligent. JB is a Bafoon.

As a matter of a fact... said...

Catmom honestly no, I can see Jill fulfilling that role!

lisa mcginess said...

yes i do and I think Jessa is a bully telling everyone what to do all the time. she runs her family just like jim bod?

Billie Jean said...

I think Jill is socially backwards. I about choked when she was talking about their wedding and Derick's moms illness. She loved being on camera and would interrupt her poor husband to finish what he was saying. She comes across as one of those people who are so dumb that they don't know how dumb they are.

life of their own.. said...

I use to watched Little House, but it has been so long ago, wasn't it Nellie who would snitch on everyone? I know she was stuck up,right? Just trying to remember correctly, to make an accurate comparison.

Ruby said...

Vain Jessa has a receding hairline like some of her brothers.

Ashleigh said...

Stop the presses Ben and jessa completing paperwork and a home study. why because they are adopting what crazy agency would ever give them a child.

Chloe said...

Jill, Jess & Michelle such nasty housekeepers. Everytime I've seen their homes, it's inspirational to me to always maintain a Clean Home, especially my kitchen & bathrooms.

Ellyn said...

OMG what is wrong with Deicks teeth? At one tie hchad a nice smile. What happened?

Cat said...

What has happened to Derick? Not just his teeth, but his whole body and so much facial hair,there was a comment that Jill likes a beard, but he looks like Teen Wolf, talking with gauze in his mouth

Ellyn said...

Sorry typed too fast several words misspelled.

Cedric said...

This J&J episode was unusually boring. I found the Roloff interaction with fans far more honest & interesting happy they are back. Please TLC, Cancel the entire Duggar family PLEASE!!

Liza J said...

Looking forward to one day the truth coming out about Jill and Derrick. Why did they suddenly run off to their "missionary work" while Derrick was in the middle of his jaw and teeth realignment? .Why did he suddenly give up his job? Didn't Jill feel badly about leaving the nice big house full of all the begged for wedding gifts? (remember the published list??). Why has Derrick morphed into an unkempt and dirty dirty looking man? What is keeping them among the Zika virus outbreak with a baby and the ever present gang kidnapping threat? Why are they posting no photos of any missionary work and hosting the constant stream of family visitors? None of this makes any sense, even their phony donation scam to fund their expenses doesn't make sense if they have to live down there. One thing I notice is that honeymoon baby Israel does not look a bit like Derrick, who is so different in looks from the Duggars. Israel so strongly looks like Jimbob and the brothers.

mrs. clean said...

Does he even have a toothbrush? His teeth looked as though he had not brushed them since he has been in CA!! And that beard! Get back to the states, get a professional tooth scaling, take a shower and get back to Walmart. Maybe this is "natural birth control." I wouldn't jump in bed with the bum!

Susie said...

Conducting a women's conference for SOS and singing a song to them in English is wrong. It would have been easy to sing it in their native language. They did not.

Reading to the women from a workbook in English is wrong. She could have read from a Spanish version of the workbook.

Please do not try and tell us they are learning Spanish. I heard them say Hola, Andale and a short 4 word phrase that I could not understand.

Lazy, Lazy, Lazy.

RR said...

When Jilly Muffin said it would be a long, long time before they see each other again, I thought how absurd that statement was. They visit frequently. More than most missionaries that I know. They skype. They need to leave Central America for Derick's facial alignment checkups. And every Duggar event.

KimmieH said...

This last episode the J&J "LIKE" fest wasn't as prevalent as in the past. Still the episode was a huge snooze fest. Derick's teeth are a mess. I don't know what happened. Perhaps now he has TMJ? Anyway his terth really distort his facial structure. No wonder he now has a full beard.

Lydia said...

The adoption: Jessa & Ben are pipe dreaming. You are correct no reputable agency would give a child to them at least not in the USA.

Cedric said...

Ruby, Jessas receding hairline now that's too funny. I wonder if self proposed perfect Jessa is aware?

Ellyn said...

Billie Jean, Jill Dillard is dumb & uneducated as well as zero manners & clueless when speaking. Jill has zero social abilities as is evident with her need to continually interrupt Derick & others when they speak. Jill is extremely annoying & a mess.

nightmomma said...

That is one hour I will not get back. This is the first Counting On show I have watched...I was bored and waiting for my kids to fall asleep.

I few things I noticed: Jill and Derick cannot speak Spanish yet?! They have been down there for a few months and can only say maybe 5-10 words?! Plus that singing...while I understanding wanting to sing it would have been very easy to translate. Jessa and Ben seemed distant against each other. No interaction between them was shown, during the drive to the house they didn't hold hands, didn't speak, didn't even look at each other.

All the old footage...my goodness. That was 45 minutes of the show! Someone said they have to do something fun, well no. Jill and Derick are on vacation (they have a much bigger house than me and that view!!), Jessa and Ben's infatuation with each other has worn off and the babies are interesting but again they don't do anything!

I noticed a lot of crying going on. From the orphange to "we won't see you for five months". Come on! Don't tell me that you guys won't visit again, plus you have Skpye weekly (which further points to them not being truly missionaries).

People are drawn to this family and they are boring. They will be back, Jinger may have a courtship so we need to have a second season to find out. So far the married girls are not pregnant YET but could be.

PS Loved the eye roll from Jill when talking about "people cannot calculate due dates..."

Jac&Jil said...

Let's see, now the girls are 'walking through' pregnancy. Then there's the ever present mention of how dangerous CA is. And could someone please instruct the Duggars on the use of 'when' instead of the word 'whenever.'

Ruby said...

So Josh was seen at a mini golf place. Of all the places for them to go! All I can think of is Jim Slob's performance at mini golf as he dry humped Michelle. These people are clueless. Get a job, Josh, and quit posing for the cameras! What a foolish man.

Whose your daddy? said...

Liza j,

There is a picture of Izzy on his birthday next to a piicture of Derick on his first. Many people thought it was Derick.

Cedric said...

Ruby, love the "Jim Slob" description iota definitely true & hilarious. Wonder what Jim Slob will do now that Trump as all but seen up the Republican nomination. Jim Slob believes he controls the Republican Party & their voters what a foolish & delusional jerk.

Ginger said...

Re: Jessa & Ben & this "adoption talk." First of all, they have only been married approximately 18 months & they already have a biological baby, that needs their care & attention. What type of job does Ben have? Believe me whatever he is doing for Jim Bob, is nothing more than being an errand boy. I had neighbors who adopted & they had to "walk through," a very difficult process, even though they both had good jobs, a nice home & the wife was also willing to either give up her job or only work part-time to be a stay at home mom, because she had waited so long for a child. However, one of the requisites was,that their extended family members, also go through a process to establish that the child would be surrounded by loving grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. In other words, a truly loving caring family. That would take this child into their hearts & home. Something doesn't smell right with their constant "Adoption Talk." I don't believe they will get a baby or small child in this country,unless they do it illegally, i.e.buying the baby/child. Of course, if they go to a 3rd. world country it might be possible, but it will be extremely costly what with transportation to & from whatever country they chose, as well as pay off's to officials in whatever country they are dealing with. I belive it's all talk, trying to get viwers to watch.

amy kahan said...

Fast Forward! How many times have we seen Jill running out of the airport in Nepal for a side hug, etc? Boring and doesn't count as a new episode.

mickey said...

There are countries that give babies away to anyone with enough cash. No home study, just transfer the funds, here is your new brown/black baby.

I don't see JB really wanting a brown grandbaby. I don't see it happening. They want to just have something to talk about because their lives are so incredibly dull. Talk about a show about absolutely nothing!

Lisa J said...

It is not easy to adopt a child from foreign country. I did that and we had to have a home study completed by social worker which asked our interests, hobbies, activities we enjoyed, etc. We had to show records of income sufficient to care for the child,educational background, a stable work history and a bedroom for the child plus it was costly. How do they qualify on any of these demands? Ben & Jessa seem overwhelmed, like two teenage kids (well, Ben is barely out of his teens) suddenly given a baby to raise. Jana has been there to cook, clean, care for the baby, install a ceiling fixture (a man's job....HEllo Ben!!) while Jessa sits on the sofa, so tired from her busy life applying makeup, nursing the baby and taking selfies. Ben has no job, Jessa has no job, Jessa is not educated. They have no interests. Plus they have a child molester in the family. This talk must be for ratings only.

Yeah, right! said...

Maybe one of Jessa's adoring fans will give her a baby. Imagine how precious to see a child you gave birth to grow up in such a sweet and loving family. ;)

Maybe they can adopt a family of kids said...

The foolish talk about adopting is to keep dweebs watching. Is Ben even of legal age? I tried to rent a car at 20, even thought I had been employed with a well known company for 2 yrs and couldn't.

I'd think a baby for 18 years is a bigger responsibility than a car.

Jessa was not nice to her sister children. Why the heck does she think anyone believes she would be able to love something that didn'tcome out of her body.


Just Wondering said...

There was a repeat of this weeks episode yesterday in my area. I too think Derick looks like he is extremely ill. I couldn't help but think about all the comments about Derick's beard. It brought back memories of when the Duggars took part (supposedly at a last minute request) to be in the Passion Play. There was another one too but I don't remember the name. The Duggars show up to see a play & end up, as a surprise to them (enter sarcasm) being invited to take part in the play. I distinctly remember how many times Michelle has said over the yrs. that Jim Bob could never grow facial hair. He had to wear a fake beard in the play & little Jenny was frightened because she didn't recognize her father with a beard. So Jim Bob cannot grow facial hair & now Derick looks like a cave man. Doesn't Derick realize that even though he's in CA, he's still a member of Jim Bob's kingdom? Growing that beard, was probaply just to cover up all the dental work he had done but the added benefit is, he's socking it to the old man.

Willow said...

I just saw the photo of Jim Bob and Josh at the mini golf. You have got to be kidding!! Jim Bob at a mini golf again?? This man has no class, no pride, no manners, no humility! Doesn't Jim Bob know about all the bad publicity he received while at a mini golf? This is where they introduce Josh back to the public?

Does anyone know for sure if Josh actually attended the open-invitation graduation party?? I guess the attendees would not be all that surprised (?)

CatMom said...

Willow - Haha! Yes, you are right. I had almost forgotten about the Jim-Bob "loving on" Michelle episode at the mini-golf course. Barf!

Babytalk said...

If it is only money that would keep Benessa from adopting I would imagine TLC would be willing to pay the money to buy one. Anything for ratings! TLC pays for the whole family to take a vacation....oops! I mean mission trip, so why not just buy a baby?

HELP! said...

And one more thought that I forgot to mention in my comment: This thought has to do with Josh. I'm not sure how an adoption agency will feel when they discover that one of the adopted baby's/child's uncles has recently gone through a scandal that revealed he molested his sisters & then admitted to adulterous behavior with God knows how many women. No respected adoption agency would approve a family that has all of this going on.

Allison said...

There are plenty of conservative Christian adoption agencies. I really have no doubt that Jessa and Ben would be able to find an agency that would let them adopt.

Cindy said...

Some mentioned that Josh should get a job. In all honesty, who would hire him? Anna's pay from TLC would be their only income...unless JimPerv is controlling it too.

I wonder if the Duggars talked Derrik into the oral surgery. Anna's teeth were corrected after she married Slob. Their modestly sure focuses on their vanity of looks. Poor Derrik, I think the surgery wasn't successful.

Both Ben and Derrik are checked out. They need to pack Izzy and Spurg and run!

Chloe said...

Did a Duggar graduate? Probably got a GED. That's not a real graduation.

Mrs. Darcy said...

The Duggars appear to be a family that is not clean. TLC cameras show the home as not very clean or well kept. The girls room appears as a disaster. How disgusting.

He's Baaaaaack said...

Waiting for TLC to have an interview will Smugly after his rehab. He will claim to be cured and sooooo sorry. Then he can be back full time.

Disgusting Duggars said...

I too think Jana is being punished for not jumping all over the dork Jim Bob had picked out for her.

Ever wonder why Jim Blob skipped her and
gave Jill to Derick? And Jessa, The next in
line got her man ( her words, not mine).

I 'd be terrified to be in Jinger's shoes. If
you don't take whatever Pa throws your way and be willing to make yourself joyfully available anytime then you get stuck living with/taking care of Ma and Pa and all the younger sins at home.

It is just plain wrong.

Disgusting Duggars said...

NO, not sins....sibs. Thanks a lot stupid Spellcheck!

Goodie said...

I do thank Jim Bob for sharing his Christianity with us. And I thank God that I'm smart enough not to believe the nonsense of his so-called religion. I can't believe not one of his children have made a run for it to escape that house of horrors!

Stephanie said...

In Nepal Jimbob told a story to Jill that Michelle could have had any good looking man she wanted but she picked him because he had a good heart on the inside. The way it sounded Jimbob doesn't think Derick is good looking and if Jill is the Number four of four in the looks department that is why he thought they matched up looks wise and the truth is, I think he was right. They are equally attractive and a good match as far as looks go.

Ben and Derick didn't seem to grow up in the extreme quiver life and I feel certain they have had a kiss from a girl before their weddings. At least I hope derick at his age had kissed a girl in high school or certainly college. Ben was young but cute I think plenty girls liked him even though he can hardly utter a complete sentence.

Never once during all the wedding prep did the boys say it was their first kiss, they always said OUR first kiss. And I still think Jessa and Ben had kissed before the wedding, they were very physically attracted to one another. I don't think they wanted to lie during their wedding ceremony with the big first kiss proclamation. Also remember right before the wedding when at dinner with their parents they held hands and Michelle and Jimbob were dying to scold them, I'm glad the stood up to them and held hands. For goodness sakes they were days away from being engaged, and three months away from marriage.

I'm talking about the same ole stuff because TLC is showing the same ole stuff.



LIz J said...

The no kiss, no holding hands, no hug rule is so sick. How traumatic it must be on the wedding night for the girls. It almost sounds like a strange rape situation they must endure with a guy they've never been alone with.

Washed my brain said...

Oh, good grief. I guess I had forgotten that about Jim Bob saying that Michelle had chosen him because he had a good heart. Not buying his story for a moment because she was a new Christian and she thought, with him having been one for awhile he could be trusted. Been there, done that. Guy was creepy and ugly and telling me that he was hearing from God that I was to marry him. I was not happy about it but thought he had this real connection so maybe I'd better listen. Thankfully, I realized after awhile that I
was being manipulated by someone who realized I was just learning.

To have gone through with it and had to make myself joyfully available EVER......ewwwwww, it gives me chills even years later.

Knowing what I know about how some of those guys are ( he wasn't the only one I ran into like that.... Just the one who reminds me most of Jim Bob) I can't help But wonder if naive
Michelle fell for his line. When she realized what a jerk he is she was too far in with several kids, no education, no money to get away, and too much brainwashing.

"Safe Guards" in place said...

Stephanie,

I would love it if Ben had kissed Jessa before the wedding but with hawk eyes always watching when do you think it might have happened?

Another thought....since they seem to want to keep fans and unfans away and even parked an old police car out by the gate......does anyone else wonder if they have security cameras?
I mean, afterall that might be one thing that might help to keep Josh's hands to himself when he visits.


They should just "bell the cat" so they know where he is at all times.

Just Me said...

Just exactly what was that "Women's Conference all about? It didn't show much except for the singing in English. I didn't see them passing out any food, just some pamphlets, which were probably in English.

MR said...

Glad that the ratings are going down in general for the show. I foresee, though, that if Jess & Jill Counting On is not successful that TLC will try to reboot 19 Kids and Counting next year. At least, I think they will try it if they think they won't get a bunch of backlash. Fortunately, the advertisers have stood their ground. I am still extremely angry at the Today Show for suggesting that 19 K & C stay on the air so the older girls could address how to move forward after the molestation scandal. Does anyone remember that?
I do troll the Duggars' facebook site and even their loyal fan base is making comments such as "I really love you guys, but the last few shows were boring"
I have only seen bits and clips of the episodes posted online, but I think it is funny how they are trying to "sweetly" go about addressing the complaints about their family. They are trying too hard to address all the issues (i.e. The kids not having any jobs, Joy Anna being bossy, the kids not having any freedom, Jim Bob and Michelle not spending time with their youngest kids or grandkids) Has anyone noticed the subtle things they try to throw in? I find it comical.

Glad that I wasn't there said...

Women's conference...pamphlets.....
1.make yourself joyfully available at all times
2.stay sweet at all times
3. Do exactlywhat your husband tells you to do
4. At all times gaze at him like you did on your honeymoon.

Joyful said...

I don't want to watch this mess but would love to know What BS their PR team is spinning to make them sound better. Not going to watch and give them better ratings .

So how did they address no jobs and Bossy Joy?

Ellyn said...

Points 1 through 4 make me want to hurl! Just so disgusting.

Roo Doo said...

In my house, we call that a Freudian Slip. :-D

Pam Phlet Maker said...

More for the women's conference pamphlets

~Keep your hair long. A washing schedule doesn't matter as long as it isn't cut.
~Don't worry about the housekeeping. "Anyone can make him a sandwich...but only you can....", oh,you know. ;)
~Bare feet are beautiful, but once you get gnarly bunions (and also varicose veins from birthing your share of the Tribe of Duggar) you must wear black stockings and ugly black shoes (like Grandma Walton does on The Waltons)
~Talk as childlike as possible as it makes you appear sweet and innocent.
~Attempt to learn some of your kids names. (The younger ones you might forget, which is ok since you might not even remember who they are or that they are in your family.)
~You will want to start popping kids out as fast and furious as possible. The sooner you get some to walking the sooner you can holler from the bedroom (where you are joyfully available) for one of them to bring you the jar of pickles after they get through changing a round of diapers.
~Remember the more kids you have the more you get to rule over. And you always have someone to watch your kids when you and Daddy want to have a date night.
~Write an online cookbook with scrumptious recipes that you are sure everyone is dying to have and then make it more special by putting "All recipes are valid for non-commercial use otherwise written permission must be obtained from the The Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Family"...because you know some fancy restaurant is just dying to put Tater Tot Casserole on the menu.
~Puff sleeves are so youthful, especially on a woman "scaring 50", right Michelle?
~Wear the same hairstyle you were wearing when you met your husband, no matter if it was hideous then and was never "in style".


Anyone else want to add some things you think must be in the pamphlets, since we see them following these.

Fingers in my ears when Jill Duggar Dillard starts rambling said...

Adding to the list:

Put a chart on the fridge for everyone to see when your period is due and if you have it. (I wonder if there is a chart to let everyone know when she is ovulating.)

These people are so modest about some things and not with others.

I didn't care to see Jill's and Jessa's inverted belly buttons through the skin tight tops. Or ME-chelle on a float breastfeeding. Don't care about Jill and Derick falling right into intimacy....or to hear about her mucus plug (oh, goodness. I just pulled up BIRTH PLUG in google images and I have dry heaves)and she talks about MECONIUM (yes, I looked at google images to see what it was wonder who in their right mind shares stories like that? Poor Derick!

Ellyn said...

Jill & Jessa. When class was passed out they said did you say glass & like can we have like ours like filled like?

Roo Doo said...

In Re: the fertility chart...this is clearly a sign of their bucking the whole "we will take as many kids as the lord feels right to give us" thing. If they were TRULY leaving it up to God, there would be no tracking of cycles, aside from having a general knowledge of when MeChelle's period was due. But then again, at her age she should KNOW when her period is due...to know the signs and rhythms of her own body without putting it on display for the world to see. Additionally, there would be no trips to the fertility doctor. Which there clearly were. What if God was like, "no more, you are shut off" and MeChelle and Jim Bob were forcing God's hand by trying for #20? That's what makes me believe they have no intentions of "leaving it up to God". Too much publicity money to be made!!! And don't forget MeChelle's infant addiction!

Chloe said...

Women's Conf TLC made for TV. It's all a huge FACADE as are the entire Duggars

Only Me said...

For all the Duggars talk about "modesty", "modern modesty," don't let the video show Michelle' knees, save the tape for her many breast feedings done in public, on a float in a parade, in an elementary school classroom, while reading to young students. Trying to balance a book, her "breast friend pillow," & a baby at the same time. The chart hung where all can see her cycle. They are about the most immodest people I've seen. I wish someone would buy them a dictionary. Modesty:" Showing a moderate or humble estimate of one's merits or importance.

Just crazy said...

Just what was the "Woman's Conference all about? I didn't seen them do anything special for those women. All I saw was that they handed out bottles of water. Didn't they even feed them anything.. just bottles of water & a song??

Jamison said...

The Women's conference in CA hosted by St. Jill was a ruse & made for TLC TV. Know intelligent person believed this stupid facade.

Liza J said...

Yeah, the Women's conference was just a way to have TLC pay for the latest Duggar holiday.
The people in that CA town must be wondering what the heck is going one with these people.
There are no building projects, clean water project (except for the free bottle of water the Duggars so generously gave out!!, no education except for Jill and Dillard and their Spanish classes. (Didn't Dillard have to learn a language in high school and college with Spanish being the most common one to study as it's almost a 2nd language in the USA?). There are no photos of anything except personal pics and the continual visiting guests. Who ever heard of missionaries hosting their family every month? It's a TLC?Duggar scam, I tell you !!!

KatieP said...

Women's Conf comparable to a pyramid sales scam. Not buying Duggar & TLC stupidity.

Aimee said...

I think the Dillards will stay as long as the show is on. Then when the show is over they will hurry home from CA. -- I have friends who are REAL missionaries (they have been in Asia for over 6 years) They live in a tiny apartment and never have time to post pictures of themselves doing "fun" things. Also, in those 6 years they have only returned to the states 2 times, not every 6 months. They do not have company constantly flying in and have mastered 3 Asian languages while there. Their children also speak both English and the Asian languages. Come on Jill and Derick, you don't fool me.

Kathy said...

If it is true that Derick was messed up by the doctor Jim Bob took him to he might have been self conscious at WALMART and wanted to get away from Jim Bob and his hair brained ideas. CA might have been the only thing he cox think of to get away from the constant filming where people could see his problem. I feel sorry for him. Can you imagine being pleasant looking one day and messed up the next because your idiot father in law wanted you to look even better but got the surgeon who was thrilled to get the business and maybe was willing to do it for free?

There is a reason you have to sign something before they do any work on you. So he probably can't sue the doctor.

Eva K. said...

How awful it would be if Derick did endure the surgery by a "thrifty" doctor friend of Jimbob. Perhaps Derick grew out his hair and beard trying to detract from the unfortunate surgery that cannot be corrected. Derick looked okay before. How shallow and insulting of Jimbob, if this is true. What is he going to do about his rapidly balding boys? It's gotta bother Jimbob since he's so into hairstyles, not letting his girls cut their hair and forcing Michelle to keep her old teenage hairstyle. Will he be looking into cheap hair plugs for the boys?

Denisean said...

JimBob never cared all these years about the kids' awful skin and receding hair, and being overweight... but Derrick needed to look better for him? Please.

Barbara N. said...

I do not understand why Jimbob is so afraid of his children entering the outside world through education and working. If he has done a good job of teaching them right from wrong, why can he not trust them to live in a decent way? Why does he anticipate immorality? Could it be because his own simple mind is always on sex? He is frustrating the boys into the situation Josh is in. I believe if Josh, and the other boys, were permitted to date, even kiss and be normal boys, and I don't mean sexually promiscuous, Josh and perhaps the others would not be so curious as to touch their sisters private parts and delve into pornography. What is so horrible about seeing the anatomy of the opposite sex through education? They speak so much of periods & childbirth, why not teach about the "birds & bees" so the boys won't have to touch sisters to find out the difference. Jimbob has created "freakish adult children" who are terrified of the outside world and feel they will go to hell so they scream "NIKE" if they see a sexy lady. I doubt Jimbob going to find mates for those boys who are jobless, non-educated, older and getting balder by the minute. Jimbob certainly has no faith in his own teachings or his children. It's such a sad family that TLC is promoting. I feel this show has turned people off from religion.

Hairdo said...

Jim Bob likes to buy used and save the difference. Maybe he could transplant hair from some of the other kids to the ones who need them.

Michelle is wearing that hillbilly hairstyle and has plenty to go around. Wonder if she would be willing to give up a few plugs to some of the boys.

Wonder how devastated ol Jim Blob would be if he started losing some hair. Maybe he is hiding something and that is why he gets it just right and glues it in place with cheap hairspray.

I think at this point, Jimbob is coloring his hair. Most men his age have at least some grey at their temples. He also could be channeling a mild variation of the Trump comb over, hence the need for major hair spraying.

Here's a link to this week's People Magazine "exclusive" about Jill:
http://www.people.com/article/jill-duggar-dillard-celebrates-25th-birthday-central-america

But, my question is why do People Magazine and other media outlets tip-toe around the fact that Josh molested four of his sisters? This People article says that the last year has been tough on Jill, starting with the revelation that Josh molested five young women when he was a teenager. It has not been a tough year because of this revelation, it has been a tough 12 years for Jill and her sisters because of the molestation!

People magazine is thrilled when someone posts a link because then they know how popular the Duggars are when so many who see it click on it.

It will help Counting On return since more lame stories will be written about this bunch of backward hillbillies.

I for one boycott the purchase of People magazine as well as boycott Counting or driveling on. I find the Seewalds & Dullards very Boring & just refuse listening to horrible grammar or "like fest" just disgusting.

Grandma Duggar once predicted that Derick and Jill would be "quite the couple." Well, they are certainly a disappointment IMO.

Jill leads Derick around by the nose as he oompa-loompas behind her. Where did that good-looking, independent, young missionary go? Right into Jimbob's back pocket, that's where. He's grifting with the best of them as the Duggar blood runs through his veins. He and Jill are slumming it up in CA, aren't they? Letting the housework go, neglecting personal hygiene and being lazy Duggars - why get into a rush to learn Spanish? Duggar time extends all the way to CA, don't cha know. Ah well, they're having a good time. Quite the couple.

And don't even get me started on Benessa. Young Ben just found himself somewhere between the clouds and the ground and he doesn't remember yet how he got here. His wife packed his chute and hit him over the head, so she thinks she's in charge of his best interests. I don't think anyone expected greatness from these two - something tells me that no one ever said that Benessa would be "quite the couple." They will just reproduce and look good in family photos.

So welcome to your kingdom, Jimmy, hope it's all you planned for and wanted. All these generations living off of you.......er, I mean.......living near to you. (Don't worry, Jill and Derick will be home real soon, the free missionary ride won't last much longer). And of course Josh and Anna are a SURE THING, what with the scandals and all. They aren't going ANYWHERE. Yippeeeee!

Oh, yest, they are "quite the couple", but that isn't how she meant it, I'm sure.
