The fans are rallying around Jana Duggar! 19 Kids and Counting fans have taken to the Internet to express their anger over the way the eldest Duggar daughter is portrayed on her family’s hit reality show.
While Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar are preparing for weddings and babies, it seems their unmarried older sister has been forced into a reality TV version of Cinderella. In the “Duggar Girls Go Glam” episode that aired on Sept. 30, Jana was stuck hemming nine bridesmaid and flower girl dresses for Jill’s wedding, while the rest of the family enjoyed an afternoon tea party!
“I felt kind of sad for Jana being the one pushed into doing the alterations,” a blog commenter wrote. “I felt she is too sweet to say ‘no’ to Jill, like Cinderella.”
The 24-year-old herself even said she didn’t understand why she got the job of seamstress while many of her sisters can also sew. Then, to add insult to injury, the TLC cameras zoomed in on a tear-filled Jana’s face when a hairstylist asked her if she was seeing anyone special. “I’m good with just waiting for now,” she replied politely.
Recently, the courtships of Jill and Jessa have been ratings gold for the show, but fans are growing weary of the emphasis on getting the girls down the aisle while tossing Jana aside. “The title ’19 Kids and Counting’ doesn’t fit anymore,” another fan on the Duggar blog griped. “They should call it ‘Two down and counting’ or something like that since it seems mainly about those who are getting married.”
