Why Jacob Roloff Is No Longer A Part Of Little People; Big World?

Jacob Roloff is a television personality best known for appearing in the long-running TLC reality series ‘Little People; Big World.’ However, he called the show fake and harmful and even publicly feuded with his family for years over the show.

Jacob, who was very vocal about the show’s problem, left the show during the ninth season. 

However, after leaving the show, he made his own identity and wrote a book named “Verbing,” which is available on Amazon, and moved on to become a content maker on YouTube.

Why Jacob Left The Show?

Jacob had starred in the spin-off of Little People, Big World called Little People. The show is an American reality television series that chronicles the lives of the six-member Roloff family farm near Portland, Oregon, premiered on March 4, 2006, and airs on TLC.

Jacob, who no longer appeared on the show, made his followers questioned his disappearance from the show. 

Back in 2016, Jacob came forward and revealed the truth behind leaving the show. He slammed the show saying all the scenes are made up for drama, and said that his family life is totally different from what is shown on television. 

Producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points,” he 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.

Moreover, in 2020, Jacob also revealed that Chris Cardamone, a former producer for TLC's Little People, Big World molested him.

He also took his Instagram account to share his pain and said now; he has emptied his heart and can continue to heal.

Despite bowing out of the show, Jacob still has maintained a good relationship with his family. To support him, his family members came forward and shared supporting messages for him.

On the other hand, Chris has not addressed the allegation. 

Son Of Matt Roloff & Amy Roloff

Jacob was born on 17th January 1997 as the youngest child of Matt and Amy. His other siblings are named Jeremy Roloff, Molly Roloff, and Zachary Roloff. His parents and sibling Zachary have achondroplasia (a genetic disorder whose primary feature is dwarfism), while the remaining three have an average height. Moreover, Jacob’s parents are no longer together (m., 1987--2016). 

In 2006, Jacob was seriously injured in an accident on the family farm when trebuchet (which they use to launch pumpkins as part of the pumpkin season promotion) was prematurely triggered. In the accident, Jacob’s friend Mike Detjen was also badly injured. 

Jacob underwent surgery in his head caused by a small piece of skull pushed into his brain, and after the recovery, he and his friend were discharged on 30th October 2006.

After his recovery, he was back to the show before departing from it. Now, he has his own YouTube channel where he records his day to day life.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jacob has an estimated net worth of $300K.

Jacob is married to his long-time girlfriend Isabel Rock.

His wife Isabel is a photographer, storyteller, and artist and operates a website linktr.ee/Isabelrock. Isabel, who lost her mother in 2014 to breast cancer, wrote a book for her. 

Jacob’s wife has a very open mind and never hesitates to stand for the right. Her down-to-earth personality drew Jacob to fall for her. 

The couple first met in 2011 on the school bus. Isabel, then a sophomore, thought Jacob, a freshman, and felt Jacob was charming. They talked every day throughout the year but never got a chance to hang out much. 

During high school, they dated different people but stayed in touch. Eventually, in 2014, they finally realized their feelings for each other and started dating. Three years of dating turned their relationship status into engaged. 

Finally, their big day came in 2019 when they exchanged their I'dos in front of their friends and family. Their wedding ceremony was held in a rustic, farmhouse ceremony.
