Jessa just exchanged vows and Jill is about to give birth to her first child — but when it comes to the ladies on 19 Kids and Counting, Jana Duggar seems to be the daughter that everyone is fixated on!
Information from her past may shed some light on the 25-year-old’s love life — as a new report claims family friend Zach Bates was interested in Jana before he tied the knot to Whitney Perkins in 2013!

According to a family insider, the 25-year-old Duggar family friend and star of ‘United Bates of America,’ who has 18 siblings of his own, took Jana on several dates before officially asking Duggar family patriarch, Jim Bob, to court his oldest daughter.
“Jana just wasn’t interested,” the source explains. “She wasn’t attracted to him and [she] just didn’t see it working out.”

Despite rumors she was being set up with NFL pro Tim Tebow, Jana is still very much single and loving the role she plays in her big family by taking care of her younger siblings.
And we doubt she sees Zach as “the one who got away” — especially since she has several men chasing after her!
“Jana has been pursued by several guys,” another source tells 'Radar Online.' “The problem is that Jana’s extremely picky. She wants the real deal and won’t settle for less.”
