Without a doubt, Jon & Kate plus 8 is a huge hit that so many people have fallen in love with, including myself. I started thinking about why I gravitated towards this show. The obvious is the adorable and incredibly cute 8 children, but upon closer inspection I realized that the personalities of Jon and Kate are just as fascinating. I find Kate to be the most interesting of the two of them and here is my top 8 reasons why:
To me, she is superwoman. She has 3x5 cards posted everywhere with detailed instructions for everything. There is a system and plan in place at all times.
I am into health and nutrition but do not cook organic food from scratch all of the time, much less for a family of ten! This is amazing.
I must say her haircut is quite unusual but it definitely is stylish and suits her very well. Short and sassy.
Like Kate, I am all about creating wonderful memories for me and my family. She's mentioned that she wants her kids to have many experiences in which to fondly look back upon and that is admirable.
Not necessarily her own personal style, even though she is a nice dresser, but the fact that her children always look so cute and well put together. Adorable dresses for the girls and nice matching outfits for the boys.
Her honesty in portraying how difficult it can be in raising multiples is what makes her seem so real and approachable.
I have burst out laughing so many times at some of the funny things she has said about so many different topics. She has a sense of humor that is quite appealing.

In the opening credits she mentions that her and Jon are in this interesting situation together. By the end of each episode you realize that she is perfectly suited for the task of raising multiples in a fun and loving manner.
Kate Gosselin, with all of her quirky tendencies, has managed to give America a glimpse into what it is like to raise twins and sextuplets. Any mother knows the ups and downs of raising kids but the love you get back is always worth it, in her case it's love times 8!
