Almost 10 Years of Filming 2 Hit Reality Shows Made Jill Duggar Dillard $175K (Exclusive).

The "19 Kids and Counting" and "Counting On" star confesses in her new book that she wasn't paid until she insisted on.

It from her father, and she now tells PEOPLE: "I was so conditioned to this belief that we were benefiting from it."

Jill Duggar Dillard is disclosing some facts regarding the economics of her family's popular television programs 19 Kids and Counting.

And its offshoot Counting On, six years after quitting her career as a reality star.

Jill explains that she was not paid in any way for filming the episodes, which she claims might take up.

To 20 hours each week, if not more, in her debut memoir, Counting the Cost, which will be released on September 12.

The cause? She and her siblings followed orders from her father, Jim Bob Duggar, who handled all the finances and negotiations with the network.

Jill claims that she didn't even consider receiving compensation for a very long time.

In this week's edition of PEOPLE, she says, "I think I was so conditioned to this belief that we were benefiting from it, from going on this trip or that trip or whatever."

"It was like, well, now that [TLC] is covering these things, we can purchase frozen pizzas instead of beans and rice. Being gratitude was actually so entrenched in me.
