Most people would love to live their lives and get paid for it. This is the case with reality television star’s and particularly Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar.


Despite their religion disagreeing with it, the Duggars are earning big money and living it up. Blasting News reported how much the pair earns for doing the show.

In 2008 19 Kids and Counting started in 2008 and was a huge success for 7 years. The show ended more than 2 years ago but its stars are still living off reality show money.

The Duggars created Counting On and that’s how the family is being supported. Participating in reality shows earns people a lot of money to expose their lives and the Duggar family is no different.


The new show stars the Duggar's oldest children and it’s about how their own families have been built up. Currently, it’s estimated that Jill Duggar Dillard is worth nearly half a million dollars.

At the same time, both her and her husband, Derick Dillard, are unemployed. They are literally living off of the Counting On money.

It’s been alleged that they are making 25,000 dollars per episode. This has come as a shock to a lot of people because Jill is a millionaire with no education and at such a young age.


But this seems to be an on-going reality that all the children from the Duggar family have grown up with. They’re quite content with being unemployed and making money off fame.


This has generated a lot of controversies since their reality show was supposed to show a big family, who had vowed to live in poverty or simple living. To add salt to the wound, the family has been living lavish lifestyles.

Their lives have led a lot of fans to criticize their faith.
