Jana Duggar’s supporters are looking for the former “19 Kids and Counting” star to make a life-changing decision. A new photo of the 25-year-old reality star posted to the Duggar Family’s Facebook fan page has put viewers into a frenzy with many suggesting new life paths for the eldest Duggar daughter to take.
The Duggar’s post featuring Jana was innocent enough. The photo showed Jana arm wrestling her 14-year-old brother James. “It looks like Jana is going to win this one!” her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, captioned the shot. While the image showed Jana smiling and appearing to have fun, commenters used the update to share their opinions on Jana’s life, several suggesting she attend college or getting married.
“Such a pretty girl!” wrote one fan. “College would look great on her.” The comment, which comes nine months after Jana was rumored to be considering a stint at a Christian college, has since received over 80 likes from fellow Duggar Facebook fans.
While some supporters wanted to see Jana receive a higher education, others revealed their desire to see her settle down and get married. Their comments follow the recent marriages of two of Jana’s younger sisters, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald.
“Past time for her to marry,” one user wrote. “I’m sure she’ll be the next new one married and pregnant,” said another fan. “Jana is beautiful [and] so ready for her to move out and find a man and get married!” reads another comment.
Others stood up for Jana, who was most recently linked to former NFL star Tim Tebow, saying she would settle down when the time was right. “Didn’t know it was abnormal for folks of other lifestyles not be married at her age. Give her a break,” wrote one fan.
While marriage and college was on fans’ minds, other supporters revealed they simply want Jana to have a life outside of the Duggar household.
The Duggar's update on Jana follows multiples reports which have claimed she's working as a live-in babysitter for her famous family members, earning her the nickname “Cinderella Duggar.” In recent months, she has been documented caring for her sibling's offspring on several occasions. In September, Jana was spotted caring for her brother Josh Duggar and his wife Anna’s youngest, Meredith Grace, while attending her cousin Amy King’s wedding. “While the rest of the family enjoyed the celebration, Jana was tasked with caring for the newborn as well as her younger brothers,” OK! magazine reported of the images. But it didn’t stop there.

When Jana's sister Jill, 24, and brother-in-law Derick returned home from their mission trip, Jana was photographed giving her nephew Israel David a piano lesson. Her role in the Duggar family was most recently brought into question when Jessa, 23, posted an Instagram video of Jana holding Meredith while singing with the family over Thanksgiving.
While “19 Kids and Counting” is no longer on the air, Jana’s supporters might be able to catch a glimpse of her on TLC’s upcoming Duggar specials. Jill and Jessa will star alongside their husbands in “Jill & Jessa: Counting On,” which premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. EST. Jana was present for at least one event filmed for the show, Jessa’s baby shower.
