‘Counting On’: Which Duggar has the Highest Net Worth?

The Duggars have been on our television screens for years. And while that means that we have learned a lot about the family, there is one thing that the conservative crew doesn’t usually talk about. And that’s how much money they make.

Yesterday, we celebrated Grandma Duggar’s life with our family and our friends. We cried, we smiled, we laughed, we prayed, we hugged, we rejoiced. Death and loss bring the deepest of emotions to the surface. Yet, our emotions rest in the peace of knowing Christ. It is phenomenal to realize that none of us are perfect, we’ve all failed, yet a loving and redemptive God is willing to forgive our sins, be with us throughout life, and give us eternal life with Him IF we put our trust in Christ and follow Him. Grandma’s life was beautiful in so many ways. She was devoted to her family, she was a servant, she always put others before herself, she was feisty and funny, she was fashionable. She was ours and through the years we shared her with the world and she never minded. She was always thinking about others. She was bold, yet humble. Yesterday, as we gathered to honor her life we realized how deeply she’s impacted each of us. We recounted all she’s done for us and all she’s meant to us. We still can’t really process that she’s gone. We don’t want her to be gone. We want to hug her one more time. She will continue to inspire all of us with her faith and the life she lived. Our memories of her become a treasure, which we will hold tightly. Above all, we are so thankful that today she beholds the wonders of an eternal life that we cannot fully imagine and that some day, we too will be with her again. Thank you for your prayers and so many kind words. Our family can never fully express our gratitude for the love and support you’ve shown us.

When the show started, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar had to be making a considerable about of money to support their children. You can’t have 19 kids without a healthy bank account. But since their television show, spin-offs, and sponsorship deals, it’s safe to say that the family’s funds have significantly increased.

But all of the Duggars are not equally popular. So which one has the highest net worth?


Josh Duggar has had the most scandals connected to him of any Duggar. The family’s show even got canceled when it came out that Josh had molested several kids when he was a teenager, a couple of them being his siblings. Since then, TLC has refused to work with Josh.

Despite not being on television anymore, he still has a net worth of $200,000.

Joseph and Kendra Caldwell

As one of the youngest siblings, Joseph and his wife, Kendra Caldwell’s net worths are unknown. He is currently earning money by working with his dad in real estate. He also got his CDL license so he could drive trucks for money as well.


Jana Duggar is one of the children who stays out of the limelight as much as possible. She is unmarried and spends her time helping raise her younger siblings. She is currently worth $400,000.

Jill and Derick Dillard

Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick landed a spin-off show along with Jill’s sister Jessa, Jill & Jessa: Counting On. Some sources say that the couple’s net worth is around $400,000.

We had a wonderful 5yr. anniversary weekend in Branson, MO! We stayed at a bed and breakfast, then hung out at Silver Dollar City part of the time and saw our friends @southernraisedbandmusic perform. . . Derick surprised me with an amazing dinner (& lovely view!) @thekeetercenter at #collegeoftheozarks (highly recommend! Such a neat place! ) #hardworku @sierrasaffle . . . Thanks @datingdivas for the fun games and ideas! If you don’t know about them, check them out!! They’ve got lots of fun, clean, date/marriage tips and ideas! ❤️ . . We ended our trip with a fun afternoon at the movies watching #toystory4 lol . . Thanks @cldilla & Bawpaw for keeping the boys! . . ( Note: We are not recommending the Kama Sutra. We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical. The little book pictured is a modern, smaller, cleaner, edited version that doesn’t focus on spiritual aspects, homosexual, or other extramarital relationships, and again, we don’t take everything in there either as the truth. It is always good to be aware and careful of what we allow into our minds, hearts and marriages. We’ve not read the actual Kama Sutra and only promote biblical marriage (i.e. between a man and woman who are married). We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post.❤️)

Jessa and Ben Seewald

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have the same net worth as their Counting On costars, $400,000. Neither of them works normal day jobs and instead, the couple lives off the money from their reality show and sponsorships.

John David

John David has had notably fewer scandals than his brother Josh and because of that has a considerably higher net worth. After 19 Kids and Counting went under, John David was still able to appear on the spin-off Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

He is currently worth $1 million.

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo

Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo have the highest net worth of any of the Duggar kids.

Their $2 million net worth is largely made up of her husband’s money from his career as a professional soccer player. Jinger has also made money from the television show, as well as co-authoring some of the Duggar books.

Jim Bob and Michelle

Jim Bob and his wife Michelle claim that they were already debt-free before they even landed 19 Kids and Counting.

Though exact figures haven’t been released on how much they made from the show, according to E! News, reality producer Terence Michael has some guesses. He estimated that TLC budgeted around $250,000 to $400,000 for each episode of the series. Reality TV families typically earn 10% of the per-episode budget, which would mean that the Duggars were making between $25,000 and $40,000 per episode of the show.

They are worth $3.5 million.
