‘LPBW’: Matt Roloff Clarified That Jacob Roloff Isn’t Actually Getting Married on Roloff Farms
Little People, Big World has been on television for years — and we’ve watched Matt and Amy Roloff’s kids grow up fast. While Jeremy, Zach, Molly, and Jacob all started the show as children, they’re all well into adulthood now — and Jacob is the last of the Roloff kids to get married. There’s a reason the show centers on Matt, Amy, and Zach now, however — and that’s because Jeremy, Molly, and Jacob have all chosen to take a step away from production.
Out of all the Roloffs, Jacob has stirred the pot the most over the years. And now, he’s getting married. While everyone assumed Jacob would be tying the knot with his fiancee, Isabel Rock, on Roloff Farms, Matt just clarified that that’s not exactly the case. Here’s what he said.
All of the Roloff kids have had their weddings on Roloff Farms
Fans of LPBW are as familiar with Roloff Farms as they are with the family. When the show first began, Matt and Amy were living and working on the farm together, as it’s particularly well-known for its lucrative pumpkin season. Unfortunately, after Matt and Amy’s divorce, their happy life on the farm needed to be divided. This past season showed Amy making the decision to sell her half of Roloff Farms to Matt so she could find a new home.
Amy stated in a Facebook Live video more recently that there is one reason she’s waiting to completely move off of the farm property, however — and that’s so that Jacob can have his wedding there. Amy explained that Matt didn’t think Jacob would be tying the knot on the property, but she’s staying to ensure she’s there and he’s able to do that. “All of the three kids got married on the farm. And I said, oh, for me to make sure that this happens, November 1 — they’re getting married this September. … These are certain things that I wanted to make sure in my decision making because this is at least what I could do for Jacob,” she said.
Matt Roloff just said Jacob isn’t actually tying the knot on the farm property
Amy verified that all of her children married on the farm, but Jacob seems to be doing things differently. He’s been the black sheep of the family since the beginning, as he infamously left the show after claiming production turned his family into the “Roloff characters” who he doesn’t have anything in common with. Since then, he’s been documenting his life on social media with his fiancee — but he has yet to return to the small screen.
As for the wedding, while Amy said in her Facebook Live video that Jacob would be having his wedding on the farm, Matt begs to differ. In this recent video of Matt cleaning up the farm, he explains what’s really going on for the big day.
“We are certainly working and laboring away here getting ready for Jacob and Izzy’s big day,” Matt says in the video. “They are having their wedding reception here on the farm … Jacob and Izzy are actually getting married at the beach. I know a lot of people don’t understand all the process, but they’re getting married at the beach, very exciting for them, that’s their favorite spot. … And then they’re going to come back to the farm, and at that point, we’ll have a big party!”
Jacob won’t have his wedding televised, either
LPBW fans are hopeful they’ll be able to see Jacob’s wedding on TV, but unfortunately, that’s highly unlikely to happen. While fans would love for Jacob and his soon-to-be wife to put their nuptials on the show, he stated in this Instagram post that he would never return. “I get comments on here all the time about how people ‘miss me on the show’ or telling me I should ‘do a few more episodes’ with the family; I’m posting this to say that that will never happen,” he wrote.
We’re still hopeful Matt and Amy will get plenty of photos to share with their followers, however. And even without opting to put the wedding on TV (or opting to have the ceremony on the farm), everyone’s still happy for Jacob and Isabel Rock.
