The Absolute Best Photos of Jana Duggar’s Quiet Desperation

Though I try to keep my relationship with the Duggars strictly professional (i.e. nonexistent after 5:30 p.m.) I have a soft spot for Jana Duggar, the Cinderella Duggar with sad eyes and so much wasted potential. Like, I know most of you have Jinger and her "rebellious" pants-wearing ways as a favorite, or feel the deepest empathy for perpetually neglected Jordyn-Grace, whatever. I'm just saying that at the end of the day, nobody has suffered hardest in this family than Jana, confined to the Duggar compound with marriage seemingly as her only escape route. And though her soft-spoken nature keeps her from flipping out on camera or, you know, getting the hell out of there ASAP, I can see the extent of her pain in the tiniest glances.

And look, this girl is boldly unappreciated by everyone from her absentee parent Michelle to Jill, who had her big sis sew all of her stupid bridesmaids dresses. Oh, and don't even get us started on Jessa and her passive-aggressive torture. But I see you, Jana. I see you trapped in the tallest Duggar tower. And if you look at just about any episode of Counting On, you start to see it too. Scroll down to see some of the greatest moments of Jana screaming internally.
