‘Counting On’ Spoilers find that rumors about the oldest Duggar daughter, Jana have been running rampant, ever since the family had 17 kids and counting. Jana is still unmarried and living at home with Mom, Michelle and Dad, Jim Bob Duggar something that’s pretty much unheard of in Christian fundamentalist circles when you are at the ancient age of 31!
But fans haven’t given up on the “old maid” yet and are delighted to see that Jana may secretly be courting someone right under their noses.
The man in question is Stephen Wissmann, a 27 year old Nebraskan pilot from another large fundamentalist family. Stephen has 12 siblings. His parents are Loren and Gloria Wissmann and, as is the case with tons of uber religious families, they have a family band.
‘Counting On’ Spoilers: So, how did this rumor start?
A photo has surfaced of Jana Duggar and Stephen celebrating a Wissman family Christmas. While the entire Wissman brood is there, eagle-eyed fans spotted Jana and Stephen sitting pretty closely on a couch- some would say too close for a non-courting single man and woman.
The image has since been deleted from the Wissmann family blog, but it seems the damage is done. What is on the family blog is a bio about their son, — the fundamentalist version of his Tinder profile—describing him as a “man of many talents.”
“He enjoys being a pilot, assistant manager of Wissmann Enterprises, Inc., making small furniture, and being physically active through workouts and sports. He is gifted in initiating conversations that encourage and challenge, and he has a heart for ministry. He directs a lot of our music arrangements, plays mandolin and guitar, and sings lead and bass.”
‘Counting On’ Spoilers: No long walks on the beach?
None of the Stephen/Jana rumors have been substantiated by anyone in the Duggar or Wissman families and Jana has never formally courted. She was, however linked to family friend Lawson Bates and to Caleb Williams. It was a good thing Jana didn’t get in too deep with Caleb- he has since been arrested and charged with sexually abusing a minor.
Jim Bob would NOT sign off on that- one sexual abuser per family is the limit, thanks!
Because of Jana’s long standing single status, rumors of her sexuality have swirled, as have rumors that her parents forbade her to marry, using her as a nanny for their younger children. Maybe it’s just that Jana is marching to the beat of her own drum and will marry when she’s good and ready- if at all.
You do you, Jana, don’t let anyone else tell you how to live your life!
Counting on airs on TLC and looks to be returning to screens in April.
