Jana's Thoughts on Joe and Kendra

"Joe, growing up, you would fall asleep just wherever, many times when you were eating."
-Jana Duggar

Jana may not be married, but life as the oldest daughter in a family of 19 kids has given her a maturity that exceeds well beyond her 27 years. In this video, she shares stories and insight about younger brother Joseph Duggar, her first interactions with Kendra Caldwell, and what she admires most about Joe and Kendra as a couple.

Josiah's Wedding Prank

Many episodes of Counting On are still available for free on TLC GO (either via the website or app). As we shared on Monday, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell's two-part wedding preview is also up. Although it is "locked," we encourage you to try signing in via your internet/cable provider.

We have to ask: What do you think of the prank that best man Josiah Duggar pulls during the ceremony? When Pastor Caldwell requests the rings, maid of honor Lauren Caldwell passes Joe's to Kendra, but Josiah doesn't seem to have Kendra's. Suddenly, a man rappels from the ceiling and delivers it to Josiah, who jokingly pays him. The audience claps, and Kendra bursts out laughing.

A Few of Their Favorite Things

Joseph: "My favorite food is probably lasagna. I can't do olives. She loves olives."
Kendra: "I'm not super picky, except for when it comes to vegetables. Oh and mushrooms, too. Those are bad.

Last week, we posted two videos of Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell (now Kendra Duggar) featuring get-to-know-you games hosted by Jana Duggar. We have another clip to share, in which Joe and Kendra discuss some of their favorite things.

Joe and Kendra Rollerblade

"I think I rollerbladed once, but I was really not very good at it. I think my mom said I looked like giraffe on wheels."
-Kendra Caldwell

On last night's episode of Counting On, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell go to a local park for a rollerblading date (see video below). James Duggar is their primary chaperone, and Jackson Duggar is their "chaperone in training." At the end of the date, the couple jokingly gives Jackson a mediocre rating, as he is only present about half the time.
