Leaving the show

While Molly’s reason for leaving the show was always assumed to be the distance that kept her away from the spotlight, she is not the only Roloff who left. Her brother, Jacob Roloff also parted ways with the show.

He has been outspoken about his reasons for leaving. Jacob took to Instagram to explain that he left because he felt the producers were forcing the show in a direction which was not true to the essence of their family.

“For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn’t work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able,” explained Jacob Roloff.
