Hello Folks! It’s time for another Duggar recap! Please forgive me for the lower quality images, I screen shot my images and due to the fact I stream online I have to find an episode that is legit and often times its not the best picture quality. I try to get the recaps out for you guys asap and sometimes the images are not always perfect. Thank you for staying tuned with me through the past few weeks 🙂
Lets do this!
Season 2 Episode 6: The Big Event (it should be called All about Ben!)
This week Jinger announces she has been courting Jeremy for a whole month! They haven’t seen each other in 3 weeks! Which means the last time these two lovebirds hung out in person they were only courting for a week. The Duggar math never adds up because last episode she claimed they had been courting for 3 weeks… Wouldnt that mean they should be at 6 weeks now? Anyways. Jinger is on skype with Jeremy talking about their upcoming trip to New York and surrounding areas. Jeremy is Italian and tells Jinger she will help his Grandma prepare a real Italian feast. Putting the girl to work and testing out her kitchen skills before you propose.. very smart! Jinger says that her Mom wants to come because she wants to meet his family, we all know Michelle just wants camera time and attention so this is perfect for her to attend. Jessa, Ben and Spurgeon will also tag along for moral support and I’m quite positive a side of Ben embarrassment to add some flavor to this trip. The clan hints heavily that Jinger will be receiving her proposal for marriage and everyone knows except her! Stay tuned next week for when they go to New York. Also what makes Jinger so special that mom and dad Duggar aren’t hovering around and monitoring her skype sessions? They did that with all the other couples? Is this TLC trying to make it seem like the parents’ aren’t total control freaks and do trust their adult kids? I am wondering if this causes jealousy amongst the other couples’ who had mommy and daddy monitor their entire courtship convos!?
Ben hosts a Youth Outreach Football Clinic with some former pro football athletes helping him coach. Ben is wanting to reach the Youth and wants to touch the lives of others through ministry and figures football is a great way to connect with kids and mentor them and spread the Gospel. Ben is a little nervous because no one RSVP’d so they are going into this not knowing the number of kids attending. Ben enlists the help of the Duggar children and utilizes the free child labour and has them form into an assembly line to assemble some goodie bags for the attendees, the items were a free CD from his Rapper buddy Flame (glad to see they are still friends after the embarrassment of last weeks episode) a water bottle, a t shirt and some bracelets.
The Football Outreach gets underway and it turns out 70 kids showed up, I am sure much to Ben’s relief. The teams get divided up and each team visits a station to learn some skills and to listen to the coaches give their testimony about their career as a football player and what lead them to God. The teams start playing each other and it looks like the event was successful. I am wondering who funded this whole thing?! Touch dowwwwwwn TLC!
Lets not forget the existence of the other non married kids! This week Jana is putting on her interior decorator hat and decorating the guest mansion.. I mean house for the return of the Dillard’s from their mission trip. This house is huge and I am wondering why Jill gets another Mansion while Jessa lives in that tiny house by the Duggars’? Jana says Daddy gave her a budget so she must be frugal. Her and Joy go through the house deciding what colors of paint to use. Flash to talking heads of the producers asking the kids “If Jana was a paint color, what color would she be?” Some of the answers were “maroon”, “practical” and “a color you could go back and paint over if needed” Very endearing. I am sure Home Depot has that exact match “Practical” and “Paint over if needed” it is all apart of their Unmarried Adult line. I swear the kids’ who aren’t married or courting are painted as boring and almost not worth mentioning when the family talks about them it is kinda sad. I totally think Jana is the most beautiful and sweet Duggar and I feel for her. I feel like her life is reduced to doing everything for everyone else and putting on a smile and behaving as if she is totally loving it. Side note a weird bug flew into my hair just now and I am now having anxiety because I don’t know where it is and I’ve shaken my head around in hopes it would go away. Send help!
The Duggar’s “modest” guest house
Jinger, Michelle, Jessa and Ben are up at the crack of dawn getting ready to head to the airport to depart for New York. Ben is getting hyper controlling and hovering over Jinger as she does her hair in the bathroom. Her dilemma is her hair is a mess and shes trying to use a curling iron to fix it, she claims she used the wrong size so it doesn’t look good. Ben is telling her to hurry up and asks if she will be ready in 5 minutes! Damn Ben if you have to go number 2 please use one of the other bathrooms, I am sure there is at least one more you could unleash on. Jinger and her mom prepare some to go breakfasts and we get to see Momma Michelle look like a caring mom preparing what looks like eggs sandwiches for her darling children. Honestly I am so put off by this woman and I have my reasons but the fact her and Jim Bob are even allowed on the show about their kids is just ridiculous. The group heads to Ben and Jessa’s van to go to the airport with their egg sandwiches in tow. Jinger complains again about her hair and Jessa assures her it looks great. Lying is a sin Jessa! We see a few clips about the upcoming episode and Jeremy asks Jessa and Ben if Jinger has any clue he is about to propose and they all chuckle and say she has no clue and Ben says “Ya.. shes clueless” pot meet kettle Ben.
Hurry up Jinger! Ben needs to unleash some sins!
Well guys that was another bland episode where TLC tried hard to make a story line and fill about an hour of time. Honestly knowing after 1 month of courting this couple is set to be engaged is a little concerning. I am willing to bet Jinger will get preggo right away too. The one gleam of hope about this fast track relationship is Jinger will move away from the Duggar compound and potentially can live a more colorful life and experience more things, but if the last 3 couples to marry have shown us, people wind up back living under Jim Bob’s thumb. Maybe Jim Bob will buy a church for Jeremy to be a pastor at in Arkansas! What do you guys think? Again thanks for not hating on my blurry screen shots I am trying to find a way to get you the perfect images without having to use official images from the TLC website, I do enjoy screen shooting on my own. But damn streaming sites often have low quality on the uploaded shows.
I hope you enjoyed the recap and hope you all have a great rest of your week! Til next time!
