The Duggar family – formerly of 19 Kids & Counting and now, Counting On – have been on TV for a decade. And since they reportedly earn approximately $25,000 to $40,000 per episode, the family has made millions over the past ten years.
But, after all of the scandals, courtships, marriages, and births, fans often wonder if the Duggars have any financial issues. The family often speaks of frugality, buying used, frequenting thrift shops, and living a debt-free life, so the actual net worth of the family may shock you.
According to Cheat Sheet, the family’s net worth ranked from lowest to highest starts with Josh and Anna Duggar. Before he found himself in the middle of a molestation and cheating scandal, the couple was worth approximately $200,000. It isn’t clear how much they lost as a result of the controversy that forced him out of his Washington D.C. lobbyist job, but they no longer appear on reality TV, and he currently works as a used car salesman in Arkansas.
Next up are twins Jana and John David Duggar, who are both still single at the age of 28 – something unheard of in the Duggar family – and no one knows how much either one is worth. Jana doesn’t have a job and still lives at home to help raise her younger siblings. Meanwhile, John David is a pilot and construction worker.
Newlyweds Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell who are currently expecting their first child this summer. Their net worth is unknown, but since they are stars of Counting On, they do get a portion of the $25,000-$40,000 per episode salary, plus Joseph also works with his dad in real estate, and he has his CDL license.
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are no longer on Counting On after his transphobic Twitter rant last fall, but the couple is reportedly worth $400,000. Jill was on TV for a long time, plus she also authored a book with her sisters titled Growing Up Duggar. However, the couple may have burned through that cash since they often solicit money from fans on GoFundMe.
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald also have a reported net worth of $400,000 despite neither of them having a real job. She is one of the more popular siblings in the Duggar family, so with their TV money plus the money she makes from Instagram marketing, the couple appears to be doing just fine.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth come in next with a net worth of $700,000, and this is based on her TV money plus his income from flipping houses and his family’s campsite. They appear to be sitting pretty for a couple in their early twenties.
The most successful Duggar sibling is Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo. The expectant parents are reportedly worth $2 million thanks to her TV and book money, plus his earnings from being a professional soccer player turned pastor.
Finally, there is Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar – the parents of the 19 children – who have a net worth of approximately $3.5 million after years of reality television, real estate earnings, book deals, and speaking fees. Despite having so many kids to feed, the couple has figured out how to take care of all of them while living in a 7,000 square foot house and owing money to no one.
Counting On returns to TLC later this summer.
