Live Chat Video

Here's the video recording of the live chat that the Duggar girls (Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger Duggar) did with Ruth Dunley from Postmedia Digital this afternoon. The hair tutorial they mention is the one we filmed with them last week. It's also embedded below.

  2. hello
    i tried to ask a question this morning and it didnt work.
    it told me to click on the dialogue icon at the top left and when i did, a website came up and i didnt know what to do from there. next time the duggars do something like this could you make the instructions clearer?

  7. Why does Jill talk most of the talking?!

    1. Honestly, I think it was because the other girls were just really shy or didn't really know what all was left to say because Jill pretty much covered it. It looked to me that they all felt on the same page so.. I don't think they minded or were bothered by Jill taking the reigns.

  8. This is probably one of the better interviews. Wish that Jana could have answered the question about being single, but it is most likely not the easiest question to answer. But I think Jill can not help her self some times with answering these questions. Must see this video on TLC really cute at the end with the Jessa and Ben portion of the interview. http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/19-kids-and-counting

  9. Nice interview, just wish it was a little more of Jana and Jinger too.I'm sure there were a variety a questions to choose from,it seems like it was more of the same we have heard before.Did you notice Jingers face when they asked about engagements,she kinda gave that one away. Well, I'm counting down the hours till showtime,can't wait!!!!

  10. ok they are avoiding the question about jobs and college. if jill and jana go to college what is the name of the college. what jobs do these girls hold. why dont they move out on their own. why are they always avoiding these questions. Jessa says she went to college what did she study and where at?

    1. They answered the question. Jill is attending college to become a midwife. Google midwifery to understand this field of work. They have attended college online, from previous shows. Some of the sisters have worked as volunteer first responders, child birth assistants, and built marketable skills thru ministry to others, such as mission trips and community service. They haven't kept any of their endeavors very private. Why should they move out? Some young people choose to, others don't. Whether everyone agrees with their life choices is another topic.

  13. Wow, I love their chat. I was disappointed though that Jinger didn't say a word the whole time and that when Jana was about to speak Jill cut her off. I absolutely love how the girls are so enthusiastic but I wish they'd let the other girls also talk. I know, I have the same problem as Jill with getting so excited about things and want to talk a whole lot. I just thought I'd put this comment in so that maybe Jill will realize it if she hasn't already. Great work girls. I love hearing from you.
    Oh yes, I can tell the that one of the girls is engaged, most likely Jessa. The way they looked at each other is like the way my sister and I look at each other when we are hiding such an exciting secret. Can't wait to find out for sure.

  14. So if someone attends college via distance learning, thats not real college? Rubbish. Whats the big deal about college anyway? it does nothing to prepare you for life, largely it only exposes you to atheism. and co educational colleges are 10% education, 90% mucking around. And most graduates will probably tell you that even though they have several degrees they still are unable to find work. why? as i stated above. College doesnt prepare you for real life, they want people with real life experience. and moving out isnt everything. if anything, it is smart to stay home. why move out and pay rent etc when you can stay in the company of people you love and enjoy and live there for free? largely the reason for moving out is so you can do what you want behind your parents backs. And that is gutless behaviour. cannot understand that when society sees children in a tight knit family who enjoy being at home they are regarded as freaks, yet people wonder why the family unit is declining and crime rates etc are so high. We should see a lot more families like this one. The girls have a life, and its one they choose to live. you want to screw up your own life, go thru multiple dysfunctional relationships, and have rebellious, lazy kids and teens? be my guest. its your problem.

  15. Great interview, thanks for posting :-) I think it could have been just with Jill & Jessa though, poor Jinger looks so over it & not interested & Jana just gets talked over. Family dynamics are fun!

  17. @AnonymousNow a days there is such things as online courses, also she does on the job training and field work side by side with a licensed midwife and doula.

  18. I admire the real poise of Jana and Jinger who sit so patiently and allow Jill and Jessa to do all the talking without striving with them. I do not know why Jill is being the spokes person and Jessa is now vocal too. In the spirit of 'relationships' this seems less than good policy, to have one person doing all the talking while the other never speaks. So how does that represent their book theme all about relationships. In terms of the public, I am part of the public and I just wish Jill and now Jessa would allow for answers to come from Jana and Jinger, who I would love to hear talk too. This issue is so distracting to me that I don't really like watching these interviews.

    1. Jana and Jinger are shy and seem to prefer to let Jill do the talking. Jill is comfortable in these situations that's why she does most of the outtakes on the show.

  19. I really enjoy these girls, they are great role models in many ways. I was feeling a bit upset when Jana was cut off by Jill but I'm sure she was just trying to help her sister but sometimes we have to let each other grow. I really like Jana and think she is the sweetest, I suppose she seems the wisest because she says little, I wish I was more like her in that sense. I'm excited for all these girls and truly hope they seek to know who Jesus is more :) That is my hope for myself as well. Our doctrinal beliefs vary a bit and I would love to talk to them more about their beliefs. There is not to many young women or women in general that really know what they believe. I didn't come from a godly home but thankfully through God's mercy He revealed Himself to me :) Look forward to the next shows, although I don't have cable, so its hard to to watch them online.

    I don't think they are trying to hide anything. And def not lying. There motivations are simple, you don't need college, an education is good, but the best job is really serving God. An education can be acquired more ways then attending its the same seminary school does not make preachers, God does!

  21. Hi Ellie (I think it's you in the striped shirt! Sorry if I mixed up your names) I just wanted to tell you you're looking very nice in that shirt :) and it's really fun that you taped a hair tutorial, thanks and keep up the good work!

  22. My family home was sad because my mother talked very much and my father was always silent.

  23. @Unknown Just shows how some can keep secrets and others not so well. :} Seemed like she was a bit embarrassed her's did not say under wraps longer, but has moved on.

  24. Why could Josh and Anna hold hands while courting, but it is now against the rules for Jessa and Jill?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wish Ruth would have used her polished skill as a professional interviewer to draw out Jana and Jinger!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Annifer,I think Josh and Anna held hands after they became engaged, not during courtship? Does anyone else remember?

  27. Now that they've done a hair tutorial, do you think the Duggar girls will do a make up tutorial any time soon? :D I would really love to see how they do their make up!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would think by now; everyone would know the difference between normal dating and courtship! Why are people still asking??? Ugh! The Duggars must be sick of answering this question!

  29. @ Annifer, One if the parents was quoted as saying that the kids are the ones that decide what physical boundaries they want to set, then they keep their parents in the loop as a way if accountability

  30. Re: Anonymous 28 comment: When you have been isolated from other children while growing up like these children have been and the only rules and beliefs you hear are drilled into you and anything short of that is a sin, what other "choice" can you make? These kids, IMO, have not been exposed to their Ruark side of the family, those that date, dancing at wedding receptions, etc.and have never seen a more moderate, yet Godly life being lived. If they have attended Michelle's side of the family's occasions and have regular contact with them, they haven't stated that to my knowledge. These kids know no other choice for fear of being ostrascized by their parents and rightly so.. I'm sure they would do that, but they never address the possibility of their kids bringing another option to them and that they would go along with that... The kids have no real choice at all..

  31. When a group such as theirs the more grown up kids ALL want exactly the same thing out of life? Today show asked the kids what they wanted, if they maybe wanted smaller families, or to go to a real classroom for schooling or training of any nature, they all unanimously stated that they want large families and want to live just like their parents. The hosts were surprised at that. What does that tell you? These poor kids know of no other real options. If they are remotely aware of them their parents have discouraged those things and asked their kids to pray it away. JMO Would they address this and tell me that I was wrong? I hope so,, but doubt it. The odds that this would be their preference are low. Thank you.

  32. I love these girls! I just wish the interviewer would have asked each of them specific questions rather than letting Jill do all the talking. Jana and Jinger are two of my favorite Duggars so it was disappointing that they didn't say much. But I'm shy too, so I certainly understand. Maybe that's why I'm more drawn to them, as I can relate. I'm really happy for Jill and Jessa though! It looks like they both have great guys!

  33. this is a reply to the person who wrote at this time (April 3, 2014 at 7:46 AM)

    When you are raised in a big family you get used too it and these are kids who ENJOY IT!!! I think that a lot of parents out there want their kids to be happy, and that is what Jim Bob and Michelle ENCOURAGE.If you don't like it DON"T WATCH OR POST RUDE COMMENTS

  34. Anonymous 34: But they hang out with cousin Amy all the time. She dates, dances, wears pants, etc….living (as you called it) a more moderate Godly life.
