Revisiting 2019 Predictions & More for 2020!


Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again! I've gone through all of our predictions from last December and I'm reposting them now for y'all to take a gander at! Another long year, but fundies are always here producing both babies and bullshit.

It's now my 7th year on the prediction beat somehow, and I've been less active on FJ over the last few. I've still kept up even if I'm not posting, but I was unsure about some predictions and I'm sure I've gotten a few wrong. This is my favorite part of the year and I love giving back to this community in this weird way. Predict away and I'll be back again next year :)

You can find last year's thread here:


I didn't tally up winners this year because I'm pregnant and irritable. Sorry.

Just FYI, but the Corrals didn't have an 8th daughter, but they did have their 1st son. Didn't announce the name, for some reason. 


I think I might wait a bit to make my predictions. Things can come up closer to Christmas.

I think I'll do mine now, too.


  • Pregnancies for Jinger, Joy, Kendra and Lauren. 
  • Jedidiah loses his run for office, maybe starts a courtship. 
  • Jeremiah starts a courtship.
  • Derick makes vague comments about the rift with TLC and JB, and hints at a tell all books, but otherwise nothing major will happen for him and Jill.
  • Jana will continue to be single.
  • Not much else will change, and I don't think much will come from the investigation at the car dealership. 


  • Pregnancies for Alyssa, Josie and Tori. 
  • Traces becomes engaged to Chaney and they marry by the end of the year. 
  • Katie starts courting. 
  • Carlin finds having a baby super overwhelming. 


  • Pregnancy for Chelsy
  • No courtships, engagements or marriages for Sarah, Anna or Mary.
  • They do go on trips, though, most likely with mysterious destinations. 
  • If Jesse courts, we won't know until the wedding picture is put on the blog. 
  • Steve is going to have some sort of health issue come up.
  • He will gloat about his diet.


  • Jill will do something so over the top that we all wonder whether she can outdo herself ever again.
  • She, of course, will.
  • Nurie and Nathan will be married, and the wedding will be all about Jill.
  • Jill will desperately try to be pregnant at Nurie's wedding.
  • Jill will have a funeral for Nurie after the wedding. 
  • Nurie will be pregnant by the end of the year.
  • Timothy will have issues at school and will be "persecuted" for "being a Christian". 
  • David will continue to be lazy
  • Plexus will feature prominently in all things. 

PP and Zoo

  • Something happens with Solomon. Not sure what, but I have a sense something is coming. 
  • Zoo will go back and forth about how great she feels because of something pseudosciency and complaining about how crappy she feels because of something psudeosciency.
  • She'll talk about being pregnant again, but won't get pregnant this year.
  • PP will be kicked out of another country.

  • Pregnancy for Carolina Bontrager.

Time to make my predictions for next year. Trying to keep it simple.


Jinger and Joy both pregnant and delivering babies in the latter half of 2020.

Courtship for either Jed or Jer.

Derick continues with law school; no pregnancy for Jill.  Derick will hint at moving significant distance away from JB but still in Arkansas.



Alyssa pregnant.

Trace and Chaney engaged and married by end of 2020.

Nathan hints at a new relationship.

Lawson's musical aspirations fizzle.

No baby for Michaela.

Erin and Chad find a larger fixer upper home for their ever growing brood.



There will be fewer pictures of Jesse demonstrating his future husbandly/fatherly potentials leading us to suspect a courtship in the works.

Sarah will be busy providing chaperone duty to Jesse in the form of random trips. She will write yet another insipid book.

Uneventful deliveries of healthy babies to NR Anna and Elissa. Hardcore biblical name for NR Anna's child and Elissa will continue to use biblical name only for the middle name.  We may notice a C and or K pattern with her children's names.

None of the Maxwell daughters will court. They are all needed at home to tend to all the "littles", Gigi, Steve and Teri.

Chelsy will be pregnant and deliver in the latter half of 2020.  They will continue to give cringeworthy first names to their offspring.



Josh will, for the time being, be Marlin's right hand man in managing the farm but will hint at political aspirations.

Carson/Lina will announce another pregnancy by Easter 2020.

Mitch and Bryn will announce another pregnancy by Labor Day 2020.

Allison will be engaged but not until near the end of the year to a man not on FJ radar.

This may be the last year the Bontrager Singers do any extensive touring.



Nurie/Nathan's wedding will be fraught with drama beyond my ability to predict. Both fathers will officiate and vie for the most fundilicious preaching award. 


Pecan/Pris and related Wallers:

Baby boy Waller will also suffer his newborn picture in an awkward and marginal receptacle complete with khaki pants and polo shirt.

Another of Pecan's brothers will court and announce an engagement by the end of the year.

Sarah Waller will remain single.

Adam and Valerie will be pregnant but not announce until baby is born in 2021.


The Rest:

Elizabeth Frazer Staddon and her sister Sarah Frazer Rheaume will both be pregnant and give birth by the end of the year.  Another Frazer brother courts.

Solomon Anderson courts again.

Tom Mills marries shortly after the first anniversary of Andrea's death.

No Staddon courtships.

Muellers (Waller adjacents)-- carrying over my prediction that David will marry; Kimberly will be pregnant and deliver by the end of the year.

Bonnie Engstrom (A Knotted Life) announces a pregnancy.


And finally, Lord please no girl babies for any of our fundies....

Some sort of scandal, probably involving either Josh or Derick. 

Courtship for Jana. FJ speculates that it's meant to be a distraction from the scandals.

Abbie has her baby on JD's birthday and names her Amelia Jane.

Jill and Derick continue to act less fundy. No new pregnancy/baby. 

Nothing new for Jessa and Ben.

Pregnancy for Jinger.

Joe/Kendra: announce another pregnancy in 2020.

Josiah/Lauren: also expecting again in 2020 but don't announce until 2021.

Joy/Austin: said they were giving her body time to heal so I guess no new pregnancy. 

Jed: wins whatever political thing he's running for (sorry, don't really follow him).

No new courtships for younger boys.



Zach and Whitney: nothing new. Whitney homeschools and doesn't work anymore. 

Michael and Brandon: I hate to say it, because I'm rooting for them, but I don't see their family growing this year. She'll throw herself into nursing school instead. 

Erin I could see announcing another pregnancy in 2020.

Lawson, Nathan, Alyssa: nothing new.

Tori and Carlin have their babies, Trace gets engaged, Josie pregnant again, Katie courting.



Another courtship for Solomon. No new baby.



Baby girls for Elissa and Anna Marie within a week of each other. Jesse gets married. Chelsy pregnant again.

At least two babies born in 2020; three pregnancies due in 2021.

JD and Abbie: will actually try to be decent parents. Might try methods other than the Pearls or blanket training. JD might be reluctant to let Josh the Perv anywhere near his kids.

The Show: if the legal problems are directly related to the Duggars, the show might be dropped. If so, fingers will start being pointed about whose fault it REALLY is -- especially if finances are suddenly less abundant. 

Derick will hint around on social media but won't actually say anything of substance. 



The Nurthan wedding will be an absolute shitshow. Jilly Dearest will be visibly pregnant and in full attention-whore mode. Nathan and Nurie will be visibly overwhelmed. Nurie will spend their watered-down punch and stale snack foods (grifted, of course) reception speaking at octaves that not even dogs can hear. 

Renee will be the next on the courtship list. Kaylee will realize that she's going to be stuck with her horrid mother forever if she doesn't find a way to change her life and will run away with Snuggles. Jilly Dearest will have a few tantrums on social media, mostly because this means she has to raise her own children.

No M7 but Anna will continue to post more and more.

Healthy vaginal delivery in a hospital for Abbie. No pregnancy announcement in 2020.

Jana courts and marries. No pregnancy announcement. 

Jill is preggo.  Another failed homebirth. She has another boy which will disappoint her and the family since all her sisters and in laws each consecutively had a girl.

No pregnancy for Jessa. They build the addition on to their house.

Jinger gets pregnant.  Delivers at the end of the year. Another girl. They magically stay in the house that was only supposed to be theirs for 1 yr.

Joe and Kendra expect #3 before the year is out.

Joy has another boy. VBAC. The will flip their house and live in the trailer with both kids.

Josiah and Lauren's marriage will continue to show cracks. But they will have another kid. Due in 2021.

Jed doesn't win. No new courtships for the boys. 

Tyler quietly disappears from the show. We find out on a random comment that his mom is married and having a kid and he lives with her again.

They won't have any scandals or legal troubles. 


Whitney doesn't mention that she ever worked. No new pregnancy for her.

Michael continues in her nursing degree and she and Brandon continue their side businesses.  No pregnancy announcement. 

Erin is pregnant again before the year is up. She and Chad find a fixer upper.  They make a lot of videos about their work. He eventually puts out a book about wood working. 

Lawson continues traveling about and being a musician.  No courtship for him.

Nathaniel courts.

Alyssa announces a pregnancy and has a boy.

Carlin has a healthy girl via hospital birth. No new pregnancy announcement. 

Trace gets engaged. 

Tori has a healthy boy. Hospital birth. Pregnancy announcement next holiday season.

Josie gets pregnant with another girl. Born in the fall.

Katie is officially courting. No engagement. 

JillRod: I try to stay away but I can't resist a prediction.  She will do everything in her power to upstage her daughter's wedding. She will announce a pregnancy at the shower and do a gender reveal at the wedding after catching the bouquet and deep kissing David.  Nurie will be pregnant before the end of the year. The wedding with be live streamed and cringe worthy AF.


No courtship for Addie but there will be for her younger brother.  (I can't keep their names straight but I believe it's Edwin?)

Rachel will be pregnant as will Kressant. Both hospital births in Paraguay.  

Alyssa will be visibly pregnant again before the year is out.

Martha will announce early and claim it's due to plexus. And jesus.

Campbell will announce a pregnancy in a coy way on IG.

No pregnancy for Dorothy. 

Courtney will have a baby but not until late fall and won't be able to post #irishtwins for this pregnancy and won't be able to post #11under11. It will be a boy. She will need to buy all new boy clothes and baby gear for the baby.

We find out from a family picture at a Paine family event that Tabitha had a baby. 

There will be one major shock. A Maxwell girl will get married or one of the Arndt boys or both!

Some kind of new Josh scandal. Anna will stay and his parents will support him.

Twins for Joy, but no other pregnancy announcements. After this year’s babypalooza it’s time for a drought.

A courtship for Jana.

JB lashes out at Derick.


Wedding and pregnancy for Nurie.

No real updates for Tim, we’ll hear less and less about him.

David will have some kind of serious health crisis.


PP will completely lose his wits and go off the deep end when he is prosecuted for something. 

Another pregnancy.

Okay! Guessing time!


Babies for Abbie (girl) and Jinger (boy-August-ish)-Hospital births, no complications. Pregnancy announcements but 2021 deliveries for Joy and Kendra. Nothing from Lauren, Anna, Jessa, Jill. 

Courtship and Engagement for Jedidiah. Nothing in that regards for the rest of the over 18's. 

Jill puts Israel in Kindergarten. 



Babies for Carlin and Tori. Pregnancy announcements but 2021 delivers for Josie and Erin. Nothing from Whitney, Michaela or Alyssa. 

Engagement and Wedding for Trace and Chaney. Maybe a panicked we need to get rid of him thing for Nathan with some family friend they've "known forever but recently re-connected with." Lawson stays single. 

Erin and Chad move to a slightly bigger house. 


Bontragers: Boy for Josh and Cassidy, Girl for Chelsey and John, Carolina announces and also has a boy.

No Maxwell weddings. No baby for Melanie. 

Courtney Rogers has #11 (Boy) but not until like Sept/October. She's crushed it's not another set of Irish twins.

No Nurie pregnancy. Her wedding is live-streamed. Priscilla is a bridesmaid, Anna is not.

The Plaths TV show does not continue.  

Karissa Collins will announce #9, but not give birth till 2021

Michaela Keilen will get another niece or nephew through Brandon's side via his sister Becky.

Another seven sister engagement. Cassia maybe?

Jana - finally announces a courtship. Gets married by the end of the year. Marries an Austin type guy and stays in NWA at first. Starts a blog or Youtube channel. 

John and Abbie - has baby girl and her name is Skylar Amelia Duggar. Continues to remind everyone that John is a pilot. Abbie starts a part time nursing job during the second half of the year. 


Jill and Derrick - Derrick continues to spill half of the tea on his Instagram. Starts year 3 (final year) of law school. Jill continues to be the most rebellious Duggar. Gets a better hair dye job than Jinger (goes blonde? Maybe. Maybe a different color). Puts her kids in some type of daycare and starts online community college classes. Becomes a wine mom. Makes an announcement saying that they are waiting for Derrick to finish law school to have kid number 3, and everyone takes that as proof that they are using birth control. 


Jessa and Ben - Jessa will keep up her mediocre Youtube channel. Becomes a family youtube channel and posts old Duggar footage from time to time. Ben starts a podcast with Jeremy. Announces baby number 4 towards the second half of the year, delivers in 2021. 


Jinger and Jeremy - announces baby number 2 (a boy) during the first half of the year and delivers during the second half of the year. hospital birth. Jeremy starts a podcast with Ben. Jeremy will try to be friend Kayne West and get him on the podcast. Jinger and Jeremy will start a Youtube channel that is way better than Jessa's and Jessa is jealous. 


Joe and Kendra - announce baby number 3 towards the second half of the year. 


Josiah and Lauren - Lauren will complain on Instagram how being a first time mom is just the hardest thing she has ever gone through. Makes posts about how most days are hard but they are worth it. Josiah looks like he has aged by another 20 years. 


Joy and Austin - won't announce a new baby is on the way but will probably get some type of pet. Probably will get a dog since they have the room for it. Austin will continue to flip houses and hopefully won't get sued again. 


Jed Duggar - will not win the Arkansas State House seat. 


Jer - starts a courtship and gets married by the end of the year. 


Jason - starts a courtship with Kendra's sister Lauren but won't get engaged until 2021.

Doug Phillips will remain hidden while Beall pretends their marriage is just fine.


Mariah Campana and Josiah Thomas will get married on Leap Day. Many Campanas, Thomases, Mortons, Robertses, Johnstons, and other abortion protesting fundies will be in attendance.

Sometimes I have to play the devil's advocate.  Sometimes I think of it as being the torchbearer of hope.  So, just to keep hope alive, I will predict for 2020:

Anna Maxwell courts.

Not one, but two Arndt brothers marry!  In a double wedding, natch.  Possibly they marry sisters but not necessarily.  The wedding includes penguins (stuffed) and drones (real).

I did that once. I said John David Duggar and Sarah Maxwell would marry and FJ would implode. 

I was obviously very wrong.

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      I’ve had to evacuate due to all the aggressive wildfires,  Mr Kool is evacuated to the hospital because of his non mobility, hopefully they find him a bed in the local care home.  Fire sucks.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
      Picture included for something cool to look at.
