Former Little People, Big World star, Jacob Roloff, may no longer be a part of his family's popular TLC reality series, but that doesn't mean the 21-year-old isn't close to them! Although Jacob's taken some time away from the spotlight, he still hangs out with his fam on the reg — and especially enjoys bonding with Jackson — Zach and Tori's little one!
The youngest sibling famously refused to renew his contract with the network after he turned 18, and he's been living his life off-camera ever since — at least until recently. Jacob has taken some time to travel with his fiancée, Isabel Rock, and vlogs about his road trips.
"I saw a comment on something and somebody was asking why I don't just do a show since I'm filming myself right now," Jacob said. "There's two ways to do the filming thing — one way is through the show, maybe and the other way is through myself and vlogs. It's just more free doing it myself, I can do anything, I can say anything, I can talk about anything — I can show whatever I want."
Isabel chimed in and said Jacob will be able to do all of that and not have to worry about his words or thoughts being misconstrued. She said the way that they've been recording their vlogs is more natural since they don't plan out the topics they'll be talking about.
Jacob compared filming with TLC vs. filming by himself to living in a city with air pollution vs. living in the countryside. He also said that he doesn't want to be recognized as Jacob from Little People, Big World because he would rather be recognized for one of his own projects — or he would just prefer not to be recognized in public at all.
"I don't want people to think that I'm living in a resentful sort of way towards the show — I've moved on from it," he explained. "It's just a natural progression of leaving the place you came from, moving on away from home, traveling away from home. Just getting away."
Little People, Big World premieres tonight at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
