In a clip from Counting On, Ben invites his fellow football coaches over to his house to discuss strategy before an upcoming game. Jessa puts a massive spread of food from the family’s favorite fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, out for the men.
DuggarFamilyBlog.com posted the video, and it got a strong reaction from fans — who were more fixated on what Jessa served up than Ben’s foray into a football coaching career.
“Jessa's home all day. How hard is it to put something in the oven or the crock pot and have a homemade meal ready for guests?” one fan asked. “She didn't have to serve a 5-course meal, just some good hearty food for those men.”
“Jessa really went all out picking up that chick-fil-a party platter,” mocked another. Some accused Jessa of spending unwisely: “Wow..Chick-fil-a is expensive to feed all those guests. They must not be on a budget anymore.”
Other fans felt the haters needed to take it down a notch. “Kudos to Jessa for hostessing in a less-stress way. Moms with several littles should look for efficient ways to go about life, and a yummy Chick-fil-A platter for a bunch of football players seems like a smart move,” praised a fan.
Another fan slammed the comments as being a little too old-fashioned. “Maybe Ben chose the meal. Why is it always assumed that the woman is behind, and should be responsible for, any meal??” they asked.
