Jill Duggar Dillard Reveals Shocking Reality TV Salary

We knew Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were part of some shady dealings, but we heard it Jill Duggars It’s damning how much money they allegedly withheld from them.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star has been on a journey of revelations in recent months. After the release of the Amazon documentary Shiny Happy People, the curtain was pulled back on the Duggar family and the truth was revealed – that they had a dynasty full of scandals like you wouldn’t believe.

Not only did they try to cover up their eldest son’s sexual abuse, but recent allegations that they didn’t pay their children for a decade’s worth of filming are outrageous. In her latest memoir, Counting the Cost, Jill wrote about how it didn’t initially occur to her to ask for money.

“I think I was so used to this belief that we benefited from this or that trip or whatever,” she said People. “It was like now we could buy frozen pizza instead of beans and rice because [TLC] covers these things. It was literally so ingrained in me to be grateful.”

You’ll never believe how much Jill made for ten years of filming

After learning more about the Duggar parents in the family documentary, it becomes understandable why the 19 children never considered getting paid for their time.

“I was talking to a friend about not getting paid and I was like, ‘Well, I mean, they did the grocery shopping…’ And they said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ They said, ‘No, that’s not normal.’ That’s not how you pay yourself.’ But it’s still so ingrained in me to always focus on the positive.”

The Amazon documentary and this interview reveal that Jim Bob handled all of the finances and contracts for their TLC show. When Jill had a chance to review the first contracts from 2014, she learned that her father had pocketed almost $8 million for ten years of filming. How much did the children see? ZERO.

However, he offered an $80,000 payout to each of his adult children, but ultimately paid them $175,000 after some hired personal attorneys.

The more that comes to light about this family, the sadder the story becomes. And if we’ve learned anything about reality TV stars in the last few years: where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED HOW MUCH THE FAMILY HAS EARNED OVER THE YEARS OF FILMING? Are you sad that the minor children did not have children?

This time it’s not what you think.


She frees herself.


Which is more immoral: the Duggars or Amazon?
