With 19 siblings in the Duggar family, it can be hard to figure out who is the favorite. But one thing is for sure, Counting On fans have some strong opinions on the subject. Recently, people took to Reddit to talk about their favorite Duggar and to decide once and for all who reigns supreme.
“My favorite is probably Jana,” one user wrote. “She’s just so soft-spoken and nice, and she takes on the responsibility of all the other kids.” Another fan agreed. “My favorite is Jana also, she just seems like a genuinely nice person,” they explained.
There was a disagreement when it came to Jessa. One user wrote that she was their least favorite because “her bossiness irritates the hell out of me.” But, others thought that Ben Seewald’s wife was the coolest Duggar because she can turn the family name into an income and is clearly not a pushover.
Another popular Duggar is Jinger, who people like because she is “cute and funny.” Other fans mentioned that they have a soft spot for Jill, with one user writing that she thinks they would be a lot alike if the reality star would have had “real parents” and gone to college. It appears that Jill wants things outside of a fundamental Christian life – she has a nose ring, likes to travel, and is pursuing a career in healthcare – but she doesn’t really know how to grasp those things.
While there are a lot of opinions about who is the most popular Duggar, fans pretty much unanimously agreed who their least-favorite was – Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard.
The 29-year-old has faced a lot of backlash after his controversial tweets last month about Nate Berkus and his husband Jeremiah Brent, stars of the TLC show Nate & Berkus by Design. Dillard wrote that the couple was “a travesty of family,” and went on to say that it is sad how blatant the liberal agenda is because it highlights a lifestyle “so degrading to children.”

As Counting On fans know, this wasn’t the first time the former reality star shared unpopular opinions about the LGBTQ community on Twitter. Last fall, he went on a rant about transgender teen Jazz Jennings, and it led to TLC firing him.
Some fans even think that Dillard’s in-laws aren’t happy with his behavior, and they believe that Jinger recently threw some shade with a social media post. Last month, she posted a pic of herself holding the book She’s Got The Wrong Guy, and some saw it as a dig at her brother-in-law.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC later this summer.
