7 Little Johnstons Family Faking Money Problems To Be More Relatable To Audiences?

Some 7 Little Johnstons fans think Trent and Amber fake their money worries in TLC scenes in order to be more relatable to audiences. Despite their money in the bank, many fans believe they are purposely trying to portray a blue-collar image to get a bigger demographic in terms of viewers.

They certainly shoot for the image of the typical American family. Appearing like that, and checking that specific box could certainly be strategic. Most American families don’t have $2.5 to $4M just sitting in a bank account, especially not while also raising five kids to adulthood.

  • One 7 Little Johnstons fan said: “I feel like it’s just part of the whole plot line. Let’s make everybody think we’re the average struggling family who work hard.”

There have been some holes in this narrative, as one fan spotted Jonah with a $20k watch. Or the fact that Anna Johnston was already able to buy her own home in her early 20s.

Still, the blue-collar image that Trent and Amber portray seems to be working for them. When you’re on Season 14 of your family reality show after almost ten years, you must be doing something right.
