Josh Duggar Upsets Fans With Brief Appearance on 'Counting On'


He's been back home with the family for awhile now, but thus far, Josh Duggar has managed to stay clear of TLC cameras. Until now, at least. It looks as though Josh was caught on film at Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo's wedding.


After it came out that Josh Duggar had molested four of his own sisters and an underage babysitter as an early teen, TLC cancelled the long-running show 19 Kids and Counting. The network later brought it back as a spin-off, Counting On, with the understanding that the disgraced eldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar would never appear on camera.

They made it through almost two complete seasons before Josh was sighted on the cable network, during the finale of Season 2. The episode was a special for Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo's wedding, and while it looks like TLC took as much care as possible to leave Josh on the cutting room floor, he did manage to make it into a scene or two.

In all fairness, it looks like Josh did his best to stay out of the way. While he sat with his family near the front, when the cameras panned his direction, he held his toddler son Marcus in front of his face. The powers that be also made sure that Josh was seated far from the aisle, so he wouldn't accidentally show up in any passing shots.

Some viewers were upset that Josh made it onscreen in some capacity, but given that his family members have decided to include him in their daily lives again, TLC did the best job they could.

As long as the Duggars remain on TV, and as long as Anna continues to stand by her man's side no matter how horribly he treats her, there's going to be a chance we see Josh in some capacity, for better or for worse.
