Some Counting On fans want Jim Bob Duggar banished, gone, exited from the TLC show. Now, after they saw him being a donkey in the family’s Christmas pagaent, their strong feelings revealed they never change their minds. In fact, they slammed him as an odd-ball.
Counting On – Jim Bob acts the part of a donkey with daughter Johannah
In Tuesday’s episode of Counting On, fans grew really irritated with Jim Bob Duggar. Already, so many of them want him gone, that seeing him acting like a donkey didn’t improve matters. He allowed his daughter Johannah to ride on his back down the aisle. The big problem with fans seems to be because Counting On replaced 19 Kid & Counting. We noted in mid-July, that many fans criticized TLC for showing so much of him.
The issue revolves around the fact that the eldest son Josh apparently got intimate with his sisters. The show got canceled because of that. But more and more, he creeps back into the episodes. One fan complained, “I thought Counting On was to focus on the kids. It’s now gone back to the 19 kids format. I don’t feel comfortable watching him bob and Michelle so much as they did not seek to help the girls to what Josh did but made it acceptable.”
Fans slam Jim Bob as very odd in donkey scene
The Sun US reminds readers what down in the last episode. The older kids got together and produced a play about the birth of Jesus. Johannah, aged 14, rode down the aisle sitting astride her father. She’s not a little girl anymore, so fans felt it rather inappropriate. Actually, some of them felt it looked like downright odd behavior.
Jim Bob the donkey crawled quite a long way with his daughter on top of him. She kept falling off. On Twitter, plenty of people found something to say about it. One Counting On critic wrote, “Jim Bob is the jackass.” Another one commented, “Starting to realize that Johannah might not like her own father.” That probably referred to the bit where she nearly ripped Jim Bob’s shirt off as she struggled to balance on his back.

Others sound upset because Jim Bob dominated the show. A fan wrote, “So the Duggars are just gon highjack the whole play, huh?” Then, commenting on the odd act, a critic noted, “That….that’s so odd to ride him. I hate it so much.”

Then, others complained again about Jim Bob and Michelle in the Counting On show. They noted, “So we just pretending everyone is ok with mom and dad Duggar taking over this show?”
Well, it certainly looks like the TLC production crew seems more than happy with that. What did you think about Johannah riding on her dad, the donkey? Did you think it seemed a bit odd? After all, she’s not a little girl anymore. Sound off in the comments below.
