Derick Dillard says he and Jill were ‘volunteers’ for TLC, so which Duggars get paid and which don’t?!
Derick Dillard is claiming that he and his wife Jill Dillard “were volunteers and hadn’t been paid anything” for their appearances on 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On. As preposterous as that may sound, a source with an understanding of TLC and Discovery contracts argues that it is completely feasible that all of the payments are set up to go through family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar. That sort of arrangement could explain a lot, including The Dilllards’ falling out with TLC as well as Derick and Jill continuing to ask for donations to help pay for his enrollment in a missionary program.
