Jana Duggar: 19 Kids and Counting Fans Angry About Eldest Daughter's Mistreatment

by at .  Updated at .

Earlier this week, we reported on the rumored possibility of the surprisingly single Jana Duggar breaking free from her famous family.

Now it seems we're not the only ones who have noticed that the eldest Duggar daughter, 24, might be much better off on her own.

A recent episode of 19 Kids and Counting showed the family prepping for the wedding of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, which took place in June.

More specifically, it showed the maligned Jana Duggar working feverishly to perfect every detail in time for her sister's nuptials.

Jana was made to hem all nine bridesmaids and flower girl dresses, and in a rare moment of self interest, she complained about being stuck with the task.

Several of her sisters are also proficient at sewing, after all.

While Jana was tirelessly put to work, the rest of the Duggar offspring enjoyed pre-wedding festivities such as an afternoon tea party.

To make matters worse, TLC cameras closed on Jana's face when she was asked about the possibility of getting married herself.

Looking as though she was choking back tears, Jana stopped short of exploding, but the emotion was obvious as she gloomily replied:

"I'm okay with just waiting for now."

On more than a few Duggar-related comment boards across the Internet, fans likened Jana's obvious suffering to the story of Cinderella.

The perception is that she's being exploited by her family and is simply too kind to say no, while her family knows she's too kind to and the cycle continues.

Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Jim Bob hasn't been actively seeking a spouse for Jana as he did for Jill and Jessa, as the family relies too heavily on her help around the house.

Diabolical if so. You can watch 19 Kids and Counting online and decide for yourself if Jana is a happily helpful daughter or a sad victim of circumstance.
