Jessa vs. Jana Duggar Feud Heats Up on Counting On!

by at .

The Duggars don't fight like other families.

That's not to say they always get along, but where you and your siblings might have gone to great lengths to inflict permanent injury and lasting psychological trauma on one another, the Duggars take a much more passive aggressive approach to conflict resolution.

Eventually, one of them will probably snap and bludgeon her brothers and sisters with a hardcover Bible, but until that time comes "Duggar feuds" will be like the Cold War but with more hugs and smiles.

Picture a Putin-Trump meeting, but with fewer sex workers in the room.

If you watch Counting On online, you know that despite the presence of 19 kids (and counting!) there have only been two over-arching storylines this season.

The one that's received the most screen time centers around Jinger Duggar's engagement to Jeremy Vuolo.

But the show has also made time to explore the challenges presented by Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's return home after ten months of performing missionary work in Central America.

The latter development has led to an unexpected feud between two of the show's most well-liked siblings, Jana and Jessa Duggar.

If you caught last week's episode, you know that Jana was put in charge of decorating her parents' guest house in preparation for Jill and Derick's return.

On Tuesday's episode, Jessa gets in on the planning, and it seems she's no fan of the progress Jana has made on the project.

“I just don’t think it has any connection to the rest of the house,” Jessa reportedly complains to Jana.

“There’s a disagreement,” Jana comments. “I like random.”

We don't know how ugly things get from there (probably not that ugly at all), but this is far from the first time that Jessa and Jinger have rubbed one another the wrong way.

In their 2014 memoir, which was was seriously titled Growing Up Duggar: It's All About Relationships, Jana describes having difficulty with younger sister Jessa, who challenged her position of authority in the house from a young age.

“I think as I started to get a little bit older, I also had a very strong personality so I would sometimes protest the ideas that she had," Jessa recently told TLC cameras.

She added:

"She’d be like we’re going to do this, and I’d be like, ‘No we’re not.'

“We clashed heads a little bit when we were younger; but now that we’re older, we work together well.”

Well, we're glad they learned how to get along.

Because based on phrases like "clashing heads," they didn't learn a whole lot else in that home-school!

Just kidding, Duggars!
