You might be shocked to find out what the Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" earns from reality TV. It's estimated, for example, that Jill Duggar Dillard is worth nearly half a million despite the fact that both she and her husband Derick Dillard are unemployed. The new parents aren't even qualified and lack sponsorship for the mission work they claimed to do. When you hear what Jill Dillard makes per episode on reality television, you might be tempted to quit your day job too.

Jill and Derick Dillard make how much on reality TV?

It's been reported that "19 Kids and Counting" stars made $40,000 per episode. It isn't clear whether each child made that much or if it was a total that parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar distributed.

After a pedophilia and incest scandal involving Josh Duggar ended the first reality television show, TLC brought them back in "Counting On" (minus Josh and Anna Duggar). This show may be even more popular, and Jill Duggar Dillard is said to make $25,000 per episode. It's possible that Derick Dillard may earn his own salary as a cast member as well.

Unemployment suits Derick and Jill Dillard

Jill just gave birth to their second child and is a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom). None of the Duggar kids have much in college education. There is no mention of any of the "Counting On [VIDEO]" #Celebrities holding down any job. Facebook and Twitter and reality TV seems to be the bulk of their work. Derick Dillard styled himself as a missionary and moved the family to El Salvador after raising money on GoFundMe.

However, no church will sponsor their mission work, and they aren't properly certified or trained. So how do the new parents support themselves? Jim Bob Duggar owns their home, and family, including Jana Duggar, helps out a lot.

Jinger Duggar Vuolo worth $2 million

"19 Kids and Counting" fans were shocked to find that a very young uneducated, unemployed Jinger Duggar Vuolo is a millionaire. Her high-profile marriage to soccer player pastor Jeremy Vuolo sent "Counting On" ratings sky high. Jim Bob Duggar should be happy about this. He was worried that Vuolo wouldn't be able to support his wife in the manner to which she is accustomed to on a preacher's salary.

Whatever happened to Duggar unworldliness?

Just what is the high living that Jinger's used to? "19 Kids and Counting" was supposed to show a huge family living simply. But since then, the reality television celebrities seemed to have eschewed their vows of poverty and adopted the prosperity gospel. Minimalism has given way to lavish lifestyles and spending. Fans have begun to question how much of the Duggar message is preaching and how much is practicing. And the fact that they've earned their millions on a worldly reality show has many crying hypocrisy. #19KidsandCounting #Duggar Family
