With such a close-knit family, it was a huge surprise to find out that Josh took the job offer in Washington D.C.! Read on for the full ’19 Kids & Counting’ recap, including who won the final weight-loss challenge!

Before Jim Bob Duggar and Josh Duggar‘s final weight loss was revealed, the family had to participate in a relay race. Plus, Josh and his wife Anna Duggar made the decision to actually leave the family nest.

The Duggars were divided into two teams — the Jim Bob team and the Josh team. The two teams had to go through a crazy, complicated relay race, which included rock climbing, eating pickles, tire rolling, diaper changing and water jug racing.

So who won? Jim Bob! “It was such a thrill of victory!” He said, and tried to make Josh and his team feel better when he announced, “we are all winners!”

Jim Bob & Josh’s Final Weigh In

Even though Jim Bob won the obstacle course, Josh lost more weight in their final weigh-in. Jim Bob originally weighed 211lbs, and lost 13 pounds in the weight loss challenge. Meanwhile, Josh originally weighed 216lbs and lost 14 pounds!

Because Jim Bob won the obstacle course  Josh had to serve him breakfast in bed the following morning. So what did he serve? Turkey bacon, eggs, dry toast and his “world-famous smoothie” — a healthy meal option!

“This is a meal fit for a king!” a still sleeping Jim Bob said, and added that he is committed to staying on a healthy way of living and eating.

“In the next month, I want to loss another 10-15lbs,” he revealed.

Josh & Anna Are Moving To Washington D.C.

In a surprising twist, Josh had all the family members sit down for his ultra-special announcement — he and Anna are for sure relocating to Washington D.C. in the next couple of months! And the other part of their big news is the reveal of their baby’s gender — they are having a boy!

After hearing the news, Jim Bob asked all the family members to pray for Josh and Anna, and their decision. It will be a big change for them, but they are good, strong people — we’re sure they’ll love D.C.!

What do YOU think HollyMoms, is Josh making the right choice to move to Washington D.C.? Do you think he is being disloyal to his family?
