"I'm not just out to get married to the first [suitor] that comes along. I mean, sometimes it can be tempting. It's like, 'Oh I really want to be married.' [Especially] in those moments where your siblings, who are married and have little ones, are going out on dates and doing their things," Jana explained.
While she hasn't found the man of her dreams yet, she does have a good idea of what she's looking for in a potential suitor. In a preview of this episode of 'Counting On', which was eventually cut from the broadcast, Jana explained to her sister-in-law, Anna Duggar, that she's interested in "a hard-working guy versus an office job guy."
"She prefers a guy that gets his hands dirty," Jana's sister, Jessa Seewald, chimed in.
"I want dirt under the nails," Jana added with a smile.
It’s clear from this week's episode that Jana not only appreciates a hands-on work ethic, but she has one herself. Jana spent most of the episode helping Jessa with a complex home-lighting project.
And she's not afraid to get dirt under her own nails either. Jana's twin brother, John David Duggar, related a story about Jana's prowess in dealing with the messy, difficult situations that can pop up on a farm.
"Jana has delivered a calf before. She did the full thing," John David boasted. "We finally got it out, but she was the one that was getting with it. I think that some of those midwife training classes helped out."
It appears that Jana, who infrequently appeared on the family's previous TLC docuseries, 19 Kids and Counting, will play a bigger role in this new series, focused primarily on her sisters, and it seems that the eldest Duggar daughter's love life could be the focus of upcoming episodes. Maybe we'll see if she finds the "right one" for her.
Jill & Jessa: Counting On airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
