Is Jim Bob Duggar going broke after his family’s TLC show, Counting On, was cancelled? The Duggar dad recently made a financial decision that may hint at how his family is doing without their TLC income.
TLC announced that they were cancelling Counting On shortly after Josh Duggar was arrested in the spring of 2021. He’s since gone to trial and was found guilty of child porn charges.
Before the show was cancelled, the Duggars had been relying on the network for income for years. Their shows 17 Kids & Counting, 18 Kids & Counting, and 19 Kids & Counting were on for a total of seven years. Then, Counting On began airing as a spin-off.
A source previously revealed to The Sun that the family was losing over $850,000 per year with their show being canceled. So, it’s safe to say that the cancellation has affected them in a huge way.
The source also revealed that Jim Bob received it all and could then divvy it up. The source notes that he “invested some of it for the family, and handed the rest out.”
In addition to the show being cancelled, fans assume that Josh Duggar’s legal battle is being paid for by his father. There’s been speculation that the defense has officially run Jim Bob dry.
Now, Jim Bob Duggar might be trying to bring in more money to replace some of that lost income.
Counting On Cancelled: Is Jim Bob Duggar Going Broke?
According to The Sun, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar sold a piece of their property on January 28. The large family lives on over 97 acres of land in Tontitown, Arkansas. The property records reveal that 5.80 acres of one of the 20-acre parcels were sold.
One of the family’s neighbors bought the land for $46,400. It was filed as a “property line adjustment” a few days before the sale.
There’s no way to know what’s actually going behind the scenes with Jim Bob Duggar and his family. However, the timing of this sale after the TLC show was cancelled may raise some questions. The Duggar patriarch owns several properties and he’s also sold real estate in the past.
