‘Counting On’ Fans Can’t Figure Out How Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo Are Still Living In Their Swanky L.A. Home

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo moved to Los Angeles early last summer, and since then, they’ve been living their best lives. The two have explored various attractions and eateries in their new city, and each night, they’ve been coming home to a beautiful four-bedroom rental the church has allowed them to stay in.

Initially, the setup was meant to be a temporary home for a few months while the couple settled in. But now, nine months later, they’re still living there — and fans are asking how.

Duggar and Vuolo have adjusted to their new lifestyle with ease

Last spring, the two announced on their social media accounts that they would be uprooting their lives in Laredo, Texas, and heading West to California. Vuolo received an opportunity to take graduate classes at the master’s seminary in L.A., and the two didn’t want to miss the chance to check out a new city.

They road tripped across the country with their daughter, Felicity, in tow, and they’ve been having a great time ever since. The two are always checking out new restaurants and sightseeing the various neighborhoods in the L.A. area.

Duggar and Vuolo have been staying in a gorgeous rental home

When the couple first visited California to check out rental properties, most of the places in their budget were very small. California is an expensive state, and the two couldn’t find anything with a lot of square footage. Someone from Vuolo’s church offered the Duggars’ a newly remodeled, church-owned home for them to stay in while they continued their search.

Normally, the home would be completely outside their budget, since neither is actually working right now. But what was originally supposed to be a six-month stay has lasted much longer — and fans have questions about how they’re still able to live there.

Fans have questions about the couple’s living arrangements

Fans took to Reddit to discuss Duggar and Vuolo’s interesting living arrangement. “I might be completely wrong about this, but in the episode where they went looking for rentals in LA … They said that they could get that church rental for 6 months. It’s been 6 months already, they seem to still be living there?” one user posed in a Reddit thread.

“I kind of wonder if the house really belongs to the church or if TLC arranged it,” another user replied, though a third user chimed in that a property search showed the house does, in fact, belong to the church. “They probably weaseled their way into staying. ‘Look at all the publicity the church gets by letting ‘celebs’ live there,’” someone else wrote. “They [probably] make money with speaking engagements?” one person added, though nobody could definitely say why and how the two are still living there.

It’s unclear if Duggar and Vuolo will be able to stay in L.A. once he graduates  

Right now, it’s possible the church is allowing them to extend their rent-free stay in the home. But once Vuolo graduates, the church will likely kick them out. If that happens, Duggar and Vuolo will have to either downsize greatly or relocate out of L.A. if they want to continue living in a home that size. They seem to have made themselves quite comfortable there, but it doesn’t seem feasible that it will last.
