However, Derick doesn’t hesitate to bring the matter to the public eye even if it means people bad mouthing members of his family. Now, he thinks that the Duggar kids deserve their own TLC show. Let’s take a detailed look at this.
Counting On: Feud Between Derick and Jim Gets More Intense
Things just don’t seem to cool off between Jib Bob and Derick. Since Derick accused him of scamming his kids, they haven’t been on excellent terms. According to Derick, Jim made deals with TLC and made profits without even informing his the Duggar kids. A fan once questioned about the manipulative tendencies of Jim. To that, Derick replied that all the contracts are under Jim’s name.
Derick has also claimed that Jim told his kids that they were doing the show for free with the sole aim of spreading their religious message. They were under the impression that none of the family members made money via the show. They thought that they were doing it as a ministry that TLC reimbursed in the form of travel, restaurants, and gas.
Of course, the fans were shocked when they found out that the Duggar kids never received any compensation for appearing on the show. One of the followers sided with Derick and stated that they could see how Jim controls the money. Another asked why Jim is still on the show even after hiding what Josh Duggar did.

After that, when the other siblings got more involved, the show was back to the name Counting On.
