The LA Duggars

Jinger Vuolo, Jeremy Vuolo, Felicity Vuolo

The Vuolos have been in Los Angeles for two months and have been exploring the city in their free time. Their new location has a lot of diverse restaurants, so Jinger and Jeremy have become "foodies" as they seek to try all the new flavors. According to Jinger, her favorite has been Mediterranean.

  2. It seems like they’re going against what Jim Bob taught Jinger about finances. They’re living in a high cost of living area, with one source of income, and going out to eat often. I hope they talk about how they’re able to afford all this on the upcoming season. It seems unrealistic for any viewers wanting to follow in their footsteps.

    1. Well they should do what they WANT to do, not what JB says they should. There are many small ethnic restaurants that are not expensive and there's no reason they can't enjoy trying new things. The rest of the Duggars eat out often and no one seems to worry about how much it costs to go to Marketplace Grill, etc.

    2. Are there any second generation married Duggars that have the wife working? Each of the married couples have one source of income, outside of TLC money. The others do live in low cost areas which save money, but at least Jeremy has career plans and is using his time in LA going to school to further his goals.

      Viewers should realize that the Duggars' situation is unique. Those watching don't come from a family of 21 people who have had their lives filmed for 15+ years. Their finances are enhanced by the show.

    3. I agree. Also their life seems to perfect through their photos ( prideful IMO). It’d be nice to see real everyday life. At least Jessa, Jill and Joy show us their real everyday life. Not just of shopping, eating and outfits.

    4. Things are not always as they seem. I feel certain that Jinger saved much of the money she earned from "19 Kids" and "Counting On" as she always lived frugally and probably had little or no "overhead". You go girl! Love y'all. Ruth

    5. They didn't say how often they go out. Maybe they eat eggs and beans and tuna the rest of the time so they can afford to go out once every week or two. Budgeting is a lot easier with a smaller family. I do not expect them to spend time on the show explaining their budget. Viewers are just not going to get enough information from them to use as examples. Her parents gave a lot of frugal living advice in the earlier shows and in their books. They also have been vocal about the financial freedom resource that they used. There is information available for those who are truly wanting to live a frugal life, far beyond a couple of people on a reality TV show.

    6. Jim Bob did not raise Jeremy. So how are "they" going against it?? Jinger is a grown adult woman now and can make her own choices. They don't need to talk about how they afford it. It is no one's business. Viewers should follow in their own footsteps not other people's footsteps.

    7. 1. We don't know how often Jinger and Jeremy go out to eat. 2. The rest of the Duggar family go out to eat and no one seems to care about what it costs them. Stop nit picking.

    8. I’m sure they can afford it from filming the TLC show. I doubt Jeremy allows for the filming to occur without being compensated. There is more than one income coming into that household.

  3. Do U know what is crazy, is when Anna's sister Priscilla was getting married, and the girls all sat in their room pondering of who they were going to marry. WOW, it looks like it came true, cause Jinger got to live in a big city, and have a city lifestyle!!!! I love U 3!!!!!

    1. She's living in suburbia with citrus trees in her back yard. She's eating out instead of cooking. I don't see how that's fulfilling any "big city" dream she had as a teenager.

  4. Yay! I am a fellow “foodie”!!!! Hope y’all are having fun there!!!

  5. So, so happy for Jinger! She has a husband whom loves her, a beautiful child; and no competitive need to reproduce as fast as possible with as many children as possible, is living her dream of a big city, and enjoying freedom to live her life her way. While I have no doubt Jinger loves her family very much she is truly the only one who married and “cleaved and leaved”. She has her own life with Jeremy, Felicity and Jake! Beautiful Family!

    1. I think it's great. I wish some of the others would break off and live in other places and try new things.

    2. How is life different? Has she changed her voter registration party? Joined the local Unitarian church? Signed up to work on the Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders campaign? Denounced Styrofoam? I don't see a single life change, other than getting blond streaks.

  7. Diverse restaurants? How is food diverse? What exactly are you trying to say?

    1. Anonymous @ 8:39, Diverse is showing a wide variety...foods from several places in the world. What exactly are you getting at?

    2. Ellie means that they are trying different types of cuisine ex. Mexican, Mediterranean, Chinese,Vietnamese, Japanese, French, Ethiopian, southern style BBQ (though BBQ has multi-cultural roots), etc. The Los Angeles area is racially and ethnically diverse and with that comes a variety of foods to chose from. There are great Korean restaurants too. They can even go to a British pub though that isn't really their scene.

    3. They mean culturally diverse!! There are so many ethnic groups in LA that you can sample cuisines from all over the world!! I know - I live in the same area. I love Mediterranean food- which encompasses many nationalities. These are not prevalent in Arkansas as much as here.

    4. By definition, diverse means "showing a great deal of variety". There are many different restaurants with many different types of foods. It it not strictly an ethnic term, if that's what you were getting at, although I'm sure the diversity is due in part to many different ethnic cuisines.

    5. I think you know exactly what they are saying.

    7. They're saying that there are a lot of different ethnic and cultural restaurants serving food from all over the world.

    8. "Diverse" for Jinger is anything other than a fried chicken sandwich from a place not open on Sundays, or a Chocolate Mess.

    9. ellie is exactly saying that jinger is trying diverse foods from diverse restaurants. diverse means different. if you want to try greek food, you'd go to a greek restaurant, thai to a thai restaurant, chinese to a chinese, etc. tonitown, arkansas is not exactly known for the diverse restaurants los angeles is. growing up jinger was brought up on what is considered more 'southern' foods and didnt go out to eat much unless it was a special occasion. the only times they tried something out of their 'comfort zone' was when they were out of country and tried something new. i also dont think arkansas is known for their fresh seafood like maine is. that is also considered diverse. i never really see them eating much of it. now that jinger is living in an area where more diverse foods are available, she is trying all kinds of different things and thoroughly enjoying doing so! hope this helps answer your questions

  8. I'm so glad they're trying new things. Southern California is something called the ethnic food capital of the world as there are so many different groups there each with their own food. If you want spicy, try Thai food. It's yummy.

    1. LA is not "the ethnic food capital of the world." Try any of the big cities in SE Asia, South America, the Middle East, Australia, Italy, or France. Try London or New York City. LA can't hold a candle to them food-wise. Anthony Bourdain didn't pack his backpack and head to California to tape his shows, for good reason. Land of Starbucks and McDonald's and KFC.

  9. What is really fun is when food from two cultures meet and get "married" Then you end up with things like lamb tacos in a Mexican restaurant run by a Greek family. My sister loves the tacos. lol

  10. I want to see Jinger’s cat in LA with them. The Duggar pets need to be life long members, not cute kittens that are left when things change. Where is the kitty?!

  11. Jinger's smile looks forced. I hope she is OK.
