LPBW Family Members Who Left the Show
Since "Little People, Big World" premiered on TLC in 2006, viewers followed the lives of little people Amy and Matt Roloff, and their four children, twins Zach and Jeremy, Molly, and their youngest son, Jacob.
However, fans had a front-row seat to the many ups and downs the Roloff family faced, and in recent years some of them left the reality show. Let's have a look at who chose to leave and why.
Now 22-years-old, Jacob left the show a few years ago after he disagreed about its content and general management.
In 2015, Jacob commented on Twitter that he missed out on earnings while still a minor on the show, and complained a year later that the show made up scenes for the sake of ratings and that it didn't portray the Roloffs on television the way they are in real life.
“Producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points,” Jacob wrote. “For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn’t work well with the health and happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I could not be a part of it as soon as I was able.”
Since leaving the show, Jacob became engaged to his girlfriend, Isabel Rock in January 2018. In videos Isabel posted about their road trips across the country, Jacob explained that he preferred filming himself because it allowed him the freedom to say and do whatever he wanted.
Later in the year, Jacob published his biography, "Verbing" wherein he said that the show made him anxious in dealing with his family because of the way the crew handled the show.
“This led to arguments and miscommunications with family, especially my parents, culminating in their decision to experiment having me see a therapist,” Jacob wrote.
Even though Jacob is no longer part of the reality show, he has a good relationship with his family and often posts pictures on social media enjoying time with them.
JEREMY AND AUDREY ROLOFF
When Audrey became pregnant the following year, Jeremy's thoughts turned to their future and the couple made the decision to concentrate on other projects after little Ember turned 1-year-old.
In July 2018, Jeremy announced that "the time has come" for them to leave the reality show as he wrote:
"A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride. We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward."
However, Jeremy assured fans that they won't be disappearing and that they plan on continuing the Lord's work with exciting new ventures for the future.
The couple owns a clothing company and has a blog that's been running for years, while they also published a book called "A Love Letter Life."
Back in 2017, Molly married Joel Silvius on the Roloff Farms, but shortly after the couple moved to Spokane, Washington.
Starting a new life with her husband led to Molly leaving the show, and although it's far away from her siblings in Oregon, Molly sees her family as often as she can.
In May 2019, Molly and mom Amy spent some quality time in the kitchen baking and Amy soon shared the "special time" with her followers on social media.
“I was so happy to see my daughter Molly over Easter. It was a very special time and she inspires me!” Amy captioned the post.
Before Father's Day, Molly also got together with her father and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, when they came to visit her in her new home.
“My sweet and beautiful daughter Molly and her husband Joel. We had the best time ever visiting them and seeing their new home in Spokane… what a wonderful early Father’s Day blessing,” Matt shared.
Even though Molly is often absent from family events since she moved to Washington, Amy assured fans that she is always missed.
Other members of the family agree as Jeremy commented on their annual family photo in 2017, shortly after his younger brother, Jacob, and Isabel became engaged.
“Cheers to the last day of pumpkin season 2017 here at @rolofffarms!? This is our annual family photo. Missing Molly and Joel this year though! But our tribe is growing, we’ve added two more!“ Jeremy wrote.
When pumpkin season came around in 2019, Amy shed some light on the subject that featured throughout the latest season of "LPBW" - Amy's living conditions.
After Amy and Matt split up, debates over the future of Roloff Farms became a constant that prompted many arguments between the two.
In mid-2019, Amy officially sold her portion of the family farm to Matt, and the reality star along with her boyfriend Chris Marek had been scouting for a place to call their own since.
However, in October 2019, Amy revealed that she and Chris may have found the next place to call home after a concerned fan asked for an update.
