Over the past decade, fans have watched seven of the nineteen Duggar kids get married and start their own families. And earlier this month, we found out that number eight, John David Duggar, is engaged to Abbie Grace Burnett. However, one of the adult children remains single and living at home — Jana Duggar.
The Counting On star is Jim Bob and Michelle’s oldest daughter, and she is John David’s twin sister. As viewers have watched her siblings enter into courtships, then get engaged and married, they have wondered why the 28-year-old is still unattached.
Jana’s love life — or lack thereof — has always been a popular talking point with fans, and John David’s engagement has intensified their interest. Is it possible that she will make a courtship announcement soon?

In an interview last year, Jana gave a little insight into being single in a family that focuses on getting married and having as many kids as possible.
“I know how it feels to wait for ‘Prince Charming’ to come along. I’m still waiting. Waiting is not always easy. Especially in those times when all the married siblings are getting together, and you can’t go along because you’re not part of ‘that’ group,” Jana said.
It is possible that Jana could be the next Duggar to court, but she does have three siblings of-age who could beat her to it. Her twin younger brothers Jeremiah and Jedidiah are 19 and Jason is 18, so one of them could have the next big announcement. However, as a rule, the Duggar boys don’t usually start courting until their early 20’s.
But fans are desperate for Jana to be next, especially after John David broke the Duggar record for shortest courtship. Some believe that Jana’s parents are holding onto her because they like having her as a nanny.
Leave poor Jana Duggar alone! Her guy is out there and he will find her.

Some fans have even suggested that Jana should be the next Bachelorette in order to find her Prince Charming, but others pointed out that a season of side hugs probably wouldn’t bring ratings.
Others have tried to link Jana with Jeremy Vuolo’s brother, but so far, she has failed to find Mr. Right. But, she has made it clear in the past that she wasn’t trying to hook up with the first guy who came along. She has had opportunities in the past to court, but when it comes down to it, Jana has yet to meet the right guy for her.
To catch up with Jana Duggar and the rest of her famous family, you can watch new episodes of Counting On which air Monday nights on TLC.
