TLC Contracts Seen By Fans For First Time

In the series, Jill Dillard opened up about issues with filming births for TLC. She’s been vocal about not being paid for her time on the show. Now, we know more about the TLC agreements.

At one point in the docuseries, fans got a good look at the actual contract the Duggar family signed prior to filming with TLC. It’s dated May 18, 2012.

This brought awareness of a number of issues with this important legal agreement. Interestingly, there are a few problems with the names on the contract. Rather than “Joy-Anna Duggar,” it reads, “Joy Anna Duggar.” It also lists Johannah’s first, middle, and last names, despite not doing that for the rest of the names. Her name is also missing a letter. Jordyn’s name is missing entirely, despite her being born and participating in the show with her family.

The photo also shows that Michelle and Jim Bob were signing on behalf of their “minor children.” At the time, Jill was 21 years old and was still listed. Jessa was 19, and Jinger was 18. Below, you can see a photo of the signatures.

  1. Jim Bob and his wife didn’t care about any errors in the contract as long as they were getting paid, period. Such a disgrace and the way they raised their children was awful 😞
