Counting On fans have several theories as to why oldest Duggar daughter, Jana, is still single at the age of 28, but one fan on Reddit thinks they have finally cracked the case on her love life. Could it all be part of an elaborate Jim Bob Duggar long con to create huge ratings for a wedding special?
The latest conspiracy theory about Jana’s single status does make some sense.
“Does anyone think Jim Bob is holding off on marrying Jana to create tension and just when people are getting sick of Counting On, he will marry her off in a royal wedding-type, hyped spectacle?” wrote the Reddit user.
Despite the theory being possible, most Redditors disagreed with the idea. One wrote that Jim Bob runs the risk of losing Jana’s value if she reached her thirties, while another said that – even though they disagree with the Duggar’s religion – they didn’t think the family patriarch would pimp out his own children to make some cash.
Many people don’t want to accept the fact that Jana’s single status is probably just because she hasn’t met the right guy yet, instead believing that it surely must be more complicated than that. But, by her own admission, Jana is waiting around for Mr. Perfect.
She does admit that waiting has not been easy, but for the reality star, it is better than settling for someone that isn’t right for her.
On the family’s recent trip to Australia, one fan had the chance to meet Jana and said that she is shocked that the stunning beauty is still single.
In the past, tabloids have linked Jana to everyone from former NFL player Tim Tebow to family friend Caleb Williams. But none of the rumors turned out to be true, and fans just can’t seem to wrap their minds around the fact that Jana isn’t courting, especially since all of her younger sisters (who are over 18) are married and starting families.
Joy-Anna, 20, married Austin Forsyth last year and just gave birth to her first child. Jinger, 24, married Jeremy Vuolo in 2016 and is expecting her first baby this July.
Jessa, 25, married Ben Seewald in 2014 and already has two boys. Finally, there is Jill Duggar, 26, who married Derick Dillard four years ago and also has two sons.
Jim Bob can’t seem to believe the state of Jana’s love life either and admitted last month in front of a crowd that his daughter continues to pray about finding the right guy.
In the meantime, the “Cinderella Duggar” continues to live with her parents – because that is the rule of the house – and takes care of her younger siblings while waiting for Prince Charming to arrive.
New episodes of Counting On premiere tonight on TLC.
