The Duggars have said before that even though they have 4,598,874 mouths to feed, they are debt-free and have never needed TLC’s checks to support their army. Jim Bob Duggar claimed he supported his family through real estate shit and Michelle Duggar has forever claimed that they live on the cheap by making their own laundry detergent, etc… Well, both Radar and OK! Magazine seem to think that the Duggars are broke, because they have put their empty hands out on YouTube and are asking their followers for coins. I guess tater tot casserole just isn’t the same when you can’t afford tater tots and have to instead use dirty Styrofoam peanuts you found while dumpster diving.
OK! claims that since 19 Kids and Counting was dropped into the trash because of Josh Duggar’s child touching ways, the family is out millions of dollars. They were reportedly making $45,000 per episode and also made a mountain of cash from sponsorships and royalties. Radar says that the Duggars are trying to make up for some of that lost money by peddling for donations on YouTube. The Duggar’s YouTube channel is barely updated and most of their videos look like they cost a total of zero dollars to make. But recently, they shat up a donation button on their channel:
After they were called out on Twitter for trying to get some easy money, the donation button came down. But they’re still selling $20 t-shirts and Jill Duggar and her zombie Aaron Rodgers-looking ass husband are also asking people to fund their missionary trip to El Salvador. (My relatives in El Salvador have already been through enough!)
I’m not sure if I’m buying the whole “the Duggars are going broke” thing. My guess is that they just don’t want to get actual jobs. But there’s many other less shameless ways for them to make some cash. The Duggars have approximately 3 million internal organs (and counting) between them, so they can easily start their own underground black market organ ring and make millions! Or Josh Duggar can set up a “$1 to punch me in the face” booth on the street and make billions! Or Michelle Duggar can launch her own holy water hairspray that keeps your mane looking as crunchy as overcooked Fritos pie and also holds in all of your secrets. And if none of that works for them, Josh Duggar can go work for Subway, because we all know they’re looking for a new spokesperson.
