Jinger Duggar’s relationship with Jeremy Vuolo will be a MAJOR focus of Season 2’s ‘Jill & Jessa: Counting On,’ but in the latest promo for the TLC reality series, it seems like Jinger’s fam is NOT super thrilled with their courtship! Watch here as Jeremy asks Jinger’s dad for his permission to date her!
During season 2 of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, viewers will get to see the moment Jeremy Vuolo, 28, asks Jinger Duggar‘s, 22, father, Jim Bob Duggar, 51, for permission to court his 6th oldest child. And honestly, Jim Bob doesn’t look TOO excited about the prospect of the soccer player courting his little girl. WATCH THE NEW COUNTING ON TRAILER HERE!
“I just wanted to speak with you about having the opportunity to court your daughter,” Jeremy tells Jim Bob during a coffee shop visit in the new trailer for the reality show’s second season. And, as Us Weekly pointed out, Jinger’s dad “does not appear to be thrilled about the news.” But in all fairness, maybe his neutral expression was due to the fact he was being interrupted from biting into a delicious-looking brownie?
Either way, we don’t totally blame Jim Bob — or the rest of the Duggar fam — for having reservations about the athlete. After all, Jeremy does have a bit of a wild past. He was apparently even arrested once for getting drunk and harassing a police officer, AND he has hinted that he’s not a virgin, according to The Inquisitr.
And Jim Bob wasn’t the only family member of Jinger’s to voice some concerns about Jeremy early on. In the clip, Jessa Duggar, 23, is shown telling the cameras that she was actually worried about Jeremy initially because she assumed he probably had a girlfriend already. “I thought, ‘This guy—surely he has another girl already,’” she said. “But we found out that he didn’t!”
Sure enough — it was Jessa, and her husband Ben Seewald, who then introduced Jeremy and Jinger! Jeremy became a preacher after he failed to make it big as a professional soccer player, and he got to know Jessa and Ben at a church fellowship at his home in San Antonio. And Jeremy became SUCH good friends with the couple that they invited him to visit them in Arkansas, which is how he met Jinger. Pretty sweet, right?
We also get to see Jeremy pop the question in the new season of Counting On, which occurred just last month in July. “We’re thinking fast track is always better,” Jinger said in the promo. TLC viewers can watch Jeremy and Jinger’s romance blossom when Counting On returns Tuesday, August 23, at 8 p.m. E.T.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you psyched to watch Jinger and Jeremy’s courtship unfold during season 2? Are you totally going to tune in?
