Jinger Duggar Talks First Kiss in New Counting On Preview!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you're a fan of the Duggar clan, you know that Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo in front of a few hundred of their closest friends back in November.

Naturally, Jinger and Jeremy's wedding was televised, but one got the feeling watching the rather slapdash TV special that the entire story wasn't being told.

Now, TLC is taking viewers back in time in an effort to connect the dots and get still more mileage out of a single wedding.

Yes, producers are throwing a middle finger at narrative conventions and structuring Counting On Season 3 like the first family-friendly Tarantino movie. 

According to the latest preview for the third season of the Duggar kids' spin-off series, the show will offer viewers an extended flashback.

In order to fill us in on the run-up to Jinger's wedding, what kinds of watershed moments did we miss the first time around?

In the trailer above, we get to see the bride-to-be's first-kiss jitters, as she receives advice from her sisters who have been there.

("Either her initiates, or you initiate it," Jill Duggar offers, somewhat un-helpfully ... yes Jill, those are the two options.)

“It’s like, this is happening,” Jessa Seewald says (playfully ... we think) at one point while recounting her own experiences.

“Jeremy’s stealing her. What are we gonna do with ourselves?”

Some fans will no doubt be entertained by all of this.

After all, wedding planning is always stressful, and the Duggars throw massive receptions on just a few months' notice.

Beyond that, there are the Duggar-only twists ...

On top of the usual pressures of being the centers of attention, newlywed Duggars experience their first kiss in front of basically their entire town.

And a few million TV viewers for good measure.

Basically, the whole thing starts to take on the feeling of some lucid dream, or adolescent nightmare, playing out in real life.

Of course, none of this changes the fact that the show has already squeezed an entire season of television out of Jinger's nuptials.

Producers teased the Vuolo wedding for weeks, plural.

Not only that, they even went so far as to pull a bait-and-switch - offering viewers a hastily-edited clip show when they believed they were tuning into the wedding special.

Yeah. You see why some fans are eager to move on.

At this point, we know just about everything about Jinger and Jeremy's relationship, from where they honeymooned to why Jinger's wedding dress train was so long.

Does the network really need to go full Pulp Fiction on us just to have Jill offer the most half-hearted make-out advice in history?

Then again, maybe we're selling them short.

Maybe if in this version we get to see Jinger and Jeremy winning the Jack-Rabbit Slim's twist contest, it will all be worth while.

But hopefully, their magical evening at the Cathedral of the Ozarks will end somewhat more peacefully than Mia and Vincent's.

Regardless of whether or not you get these references, you can watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for the Jinger wedding special.
