JED Duggar has moved out of his bachelor pad and back into his parents’ home after his loss in the Arkansas State Representative race.
Jed, 22, began renting a three bedroom, two bathroom Springdale, Arkansas home with his twin brother, Jeremiah, in September 2019 for $950 a month.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Jim Bob and Michelle’s son moved out of the home after his landslide loss in the Arkansas State Representative race, as the home was listed for rent in December 2020.
Jed’s former neighbor told The Sun: “He moved out after he lost the election. He was a quiet guy and not around here for very long. He went back to the family home.”
It is unclear if Jeremiah also moved back to the family compound.
In November, Jed lost his bid for State Representative of District 89 to Democrat incumbent Megan Godfrey.
Jed lost by almost 700 votes, with the reality star getting 43 percent to Megan’s 57 percent.
Jed’s campaign was controversial, as he was accused of “accepting illegal donations.”
He accepted $8,400 from a single donor in Louisiana, which is triple the legal amount in Arkansas, as the maximum a single donor can donate is $2,400 in Arkansas.
Jed was also slammed for “name-calling” after he branded rival Megan a “liberal princess.”
He announced he was running for State Representative in November 2019.
On a July 2020 episode of Counting On, Jed and Jeremiah showed off their bachelor pad.
The brothers started off with the “most important room in the house,” their living room that featured only a ping pong table.
They then brought cameras into their kitchen that boasted wood cabinets and tile floors.
They said they would buy a kitchen table for the “married ones” when they visit, as the dining area is small.
Despite the three-bedroom home, the brothers have twin beds directly next to each other.
Jed explained: “We are both twins so really our beds are next to each other at the big house so I was like well if we can fit two mattresses in there it would be great.”
Jeremiah added: “We’re twins so might as well fit twin mattresses.”
A producer asked the brothers if they’re the first siblings to move out of the family compound before marriage, as all of the daughters have moved out after tying the knot.
The brothers explained the only other siblings to move out before marriage were John-David and Joseph.
Jed said: “All of the older kids, they have their own choice if they want to move out or stay at home. It’s up to them. A lot of us, we love being at home, this is just the next spot in my life to go.
“I love my parents and they were actually on board with it as well. We’re excited.”
Jim Bob said his children over 18 years old have the “freedom to move out,” though he said many choose to remain home to save money.
