The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

Recommended Posts

I wonder how JB is feeling right now. He is probably working on a spin off show for Jinger and Jeremy. And please...God is directing them to Los Angeles. No Jeremy, your ego and self importance is sending the three of you to LA. And yes, the baby is cute.

Not unexpected. We talked about this a couple of weeks ago.

My guess is Jessa, Jim Bob, and Michelle. The desperate famewhore contingent--piggybacking on fellow famewhore Jeremy.

Jana might also tag along to babysit. But I could also seenl her being left behind to run the asylum.

I was slightly scared that her “big announcement” would be a new baby.  Pleasantly surprised that it’s not!  Good for Jinger, getting her big city!

Jeremy couldn't run away fast enough from Laredo. I predicted Jeremy would move them there when Jinger was still pregnant. Maybe they'll get their own spin off, Jinger in the Big City.

Honestly, I can't see how they'll afford it without the show, since neither of them have a real job.

I think this move to l.a. is going to end up being a "careful what you wish for" type thing.

I wonder which Duggar will be visiting her first. Any bets?

I don’t know about visiting, but I’m sure she’s getting a call from Jill. Jill will be telling her how she can audit classes while dumping Felicity with some random daycare or babysitter. Thinking that way, maybe Jana will have to move there to sit while Jinger goes to classes. Ok. Final answer is Jana.

Yup....

I wonder how Jeremy, who for sure considers himself to be a grand intellectual, will feel when his degree becomes essentially worthless paper to anyone outside a small insular circle when Master's Seminary inevitably looses it's regional accreditation? 

From wikipedia: "As of July 18, 2018, The Master's University and Seminary was placed under probation by its accrediting institution, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.[2] According to the letter sent by WASC to its president John F. MacArthur, WASC found TMUS in violation of multiple standards of accreditation, including competing loyalties among its board of directors, a lack of operational integrity, and a pattern of unethical treatment among faculty and staff. In addition, WASC's visiting team observed and received reports of a climate of fear, intimidation, bullying, and uncertainty among significant numbers of faculty and staff.[3] Furthermore, WASC released a statement stating its "extreme concern" that TMUS may be in violation of required reporting responsibilities under the Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.[4] TMUS has less than two years to take action to fix the problems WASC discovered, otherwise TMUS' accreditation will be withdrawn. [5]"

I work in and study higher ed. Most schools are put on probation for financial issues or certain academic issues, and many of those find it hard to address the issues that put them on probation. Most are NOT put on probation for things like this. This is a big deal. There is no way they can "fix" these issues in less than two years. 

Also, why does the MDiv there take 3-4 years???

She is also going to get big city prices.  It will be a huge shock coming out here after being in Arkansas and Texas.

The sad part is the only reason why she is getting her big city is because she was allowed to get married, and her lordship err... Jeremy wants to spread his five minutes of fame to Los Angeles. I bet Deredick is jealous of all the evil heathens Jeremy can attempt to save.

Maybe Jeremy can pull a Gil Bates take over the school/church after he gets his Masters. (The same way Gil Bates took over IBLP.)

I am interested in how God wants them to pay for this move.  Attending Grace whatever is not going to buy Felicty diapers or headbands.  I worked full-time while working on my masters--no reason one of them cannot get a full-time job with benefits.

So they will ATTEND Grace Community mega church. The show can't be paying them enough to live on, the money pie being so divided. Jeremy will definitely have to get a job.

The announcement was all about what church they will be attending and that Jeremy is in school.  Nothing about how they will be paying for this move and to support a family of 3.  There is no way that their cut will pay for them to live in LA even a run-down studio apartment.

Since God seems to like them so much (trying not to gag while typing,) I guess God would help him find a way to support his little family. Yes, I was able to type the sentences without laughing out loud or banging my head against the keyboard.

Oh, I doubt that Jinger will be glued to Jeremy's side when he has to attend class. I can't see Jeremy putting up with that little act for a hot minute.

Aw, testing her stance... what a sweetie full of innocent joy.  I remember doing that with a friend's child in a restaurant, until all of a sudden I realized that I had very little to do with the process and was pretty much simply "spotting him" by keeping my hands under his little squeezed fists.  I love visibly seeing "learning".  It was a magical moment.

I'm pretty sure all the dugger kids come to the marriage with trust funds from being on the show forever!  I wonder if the girls turn them over to their masters, sorry husbands when they marry?  Would that be the dugger way?

I don't think women are allowed in the program, so Jinger auditing anything is moot.

For REAL. I  grew up in southern California and about 10 years ago, the family and I booked it out of state because of the insane prices, taxes, housing costs, etc., and it's only getting worse. It is really no joke. You need to be making a very, very good living to live well in California, to say nothing of Los Angeles. Hope they've saved that show money.

California is surprisingly pretty conservative in a lot of areas, but LA, not so much. Anything that gets them further out of their bigot bubble is a good thing.

So John MacArthur and his relatives can rake in more cash (and so JM can conduct a more effective program of browbeating to ensure that grads follow his exact dicta as slavishly as possible, thus raking in more recruits and converts so JM and his relatives can rake in more cash....ad infinitum). 

This is the misogynistic, racist, homophobic, anti-Catholic, overprivileged gravy train Jer is dead set on riding. (but you won't hear any of those facts from him)

We'll see .... I guess he realizes he's got get to ground zero so he can cozy up to old John and get his foot farther in the door than his many rivals (many of whom are probably quite a bit smarter and more eloquent than Jer..... so sucking up most effectively will be key.) ....

Well, that, and being the one who promises MacArthur and company the most and best mass and social media exposure. ...

So, they're downsizing from a four bedroom home toooo what?  A two bedroom apartment? Where will Jinger's piano and all of Jeremy's clothes fit? This seems kind of irresponsible of Jeremy, unless he already had a sweet job and a home waiting for him.

This would make a lot of sense, however, I don't think the Duggar kids/girls do have trust funds.

Oh for sure.  They won't have the 4 bedroom 2 bath house with yard.  Maybe a tiny two bedroom rental somewhere.

I don't think she'd actually be allowed in the door of any of Jer's classes anyway. They have some separate "I'm a pastor's wife!" classes for women.

Maybe the spinoff is already signed, sealed and ready to be delivered.

They'd obviously have to pay these two more if they wanted them in an LA-based show. 

For some reason, Jer seems popular, even with a lot of hatewatchers, and Jingle's always been intriguing to many. And Felicity is cute as a bug. 

Wouldn't surprise me if this is the future of the Duggarlings on TeeVee -- and maybe the reason everybody now has to join affiliate marketing programs? -- because Counting On is on life support unless it proves they have something to beat Felicity, Jingle and Jer Do LA?

I wonder if they’ll be selling or renting out the Laredo house. Renting a similar place (forget buying) in So Cal is going to be a whole lot more expensive. I can’t wait for their reaction the first time they pay California prices for gas! (My car takes premium and it’s about 4.00 per gallon). 

On the plus side, I can so see Jinger checking out the clothing resale shops on Melrose. I wonder if they’ll live in LA proper orsonewhere in the valley.

Are they in for a big old shock...talk about heathens, gays, liberals, and wrong-kind-of-Christians...

Not to mention just a couple of tiny little famewhore fish in an extremely large pond.

Unfortunately true of any profession where you can get major ego strokes from having people listen to you or being allowed to push people around or being in the public eye in any way ... . or all of the above. Unfortunately a lot of these professions are ones where good performers should be thinking more of others than of themselves, like clergy, teachers, coaches, public officials, and so on. 

With Jer, I don't necessarily get the impression he wants to actually manipulate people and change them necessarily. Frankly, he doesn't seem interested enough in other people to want to do that. With him, it's the showing off that mostly seems to matter -- as you say, an Instagram Preacher -- so, on the bright side, I guess if my impression is accurate he's less of a problem than some other people who aspire to the job. He's just a show-off. Not necessarily a manipulative show-off. ;  )

BBM, this is such an excellent description I had to bump it. It is a distinction we lose sight of when observing a show-off vs. manipulative show-off.

Relative cost of living of Laredo, TX, and San Fernando Valley, CA

If U.S. average housing cost is taken as the benchmark  100 -- 

Then Laredo's cost is 90.7

And San Fernando Valley's cost is 251

Alrighty, then....

Could be worse, though. Housing in my neighborhood -- DC -- clocks in at 303 in this calculator.

These folks have been around the world, including New York, LA, Sydney and other major world cities.  They haven't been living under rocks, they know what things cost.  They haven't appeared to do a single thing so far without a plan.  They seem to understand financial & economic concepts.  To me, they appear to deliberately act, not simply drift along and react to what happens TO them. 

Nobody has the slightest idea what kind of situation Jing & Jerm have set up for themselves in LA, just as they have no idea how much money they have, where they will live, or who they will associate with.  That's actually nobody's business.  

I find it pretty fascinating to watch them, and despite not agreeing with much of their religious beliefs, I'm not one that's just waiting for them to fail.  YMMV.
