Jana Duggar was recently edited out of an entire episode of 19 Kids and Counting. Is TLC editing the eldest of the Duggar daughters out of the entire show?

OK! points out that Jana Duggar was conspicuously absent from the November 11th episode of 19 Kids and Counting. The episode followed eldest son Josh Duggar, his wife Anna, and their children on an RV trip. And even though both Josh and Anna made mention of how proud they were to take this trip without the help of any family members, Jana Duggar accompanied them on this past summer's vacation.

It seems the producers wanted to 'showcase the way Josh and Anna interact with their kids.' Fans fear that this might indicate a slow phasing out of Jana from the entire show.

A source told OK! that Jana Duggar became an 'invisible babysitter' while on the road trip. She has previously been referred to as the 'Cinderella Duggar' because of all the things she does behind the scenes for the family and their show. Jana reportedly worked tirelessly, along with sisters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald, to plan both weddings--the first in June and the second in November.

24-year-old Jana Duggar is a midwife.

“I’ve been spending a lot of time working under a local midwife,” she said during a recent interview. “I am really enjoying learning about natural birth. I feel so blessed to be able to learn and grow in this area, and I plan on using the skills that I’ve developed through these experiences to help my family and friends now and in the future.”

Hopefully Jana Duggar isn't being edited out of 19 Kids and Counting for good. She's pretty, smart, and a hard worker, too. It would be sad to learn that TLC wants her gone because there's no wedding on her horizon.

A current rumor floating about regarding Jana, however, involves Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and Tim Tebow's mom. They are reportedly working on setting up Jana with Tim. While there is no confirmation on this, they certainly would make an adorable couple--don't you think? Would that be enough to keep Jana Duggar in the 19 Kids and Counting spotlight?
