We know him best as a star of TLC’s Little People, Big World, but Matt Roloff has worn a lot of hats over the years. And with his many jobs, he has also racked up a sizable nest egg. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the reality TV star is worth a cool $6 million! Here’s a complete breakdown of how he’s amassed his wealth.
TV and Movies:
How’d he get that rich? His career started in the 1980s, when he worked as a computer programmer in Silicon Valley. (He also had a brief acting career during that decade, appearing in the film Under the Rainbow and the Star Wars TV movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor.) After a friend convinced Matt to take a job with a computer company in Oregon, he and then-wife Amy Roloff bought a 34-acre farm in the community of Helvetia, just outside of Portland.
Transforming Roloff Farms:
Matt has transformed the family farm into an amusement park filled with rides and attractions, as we’ve seen on the TLC reality show. Every year, he and his family welcome about 30,000 visitors to the property.
Becoming an Author:
Matt has also capitalized on his fame by writing three books: Against Tall Odds: Being a David in a Goliath World in 1999, Little Family, Big Values: Lessons in Love, Respect and Understanding for Families of Any Size in 2007 and the children’s book Little Lucy, Big Race in 2018.
Before coronavirus led to nationwide lockdowns across the various states of the U.S., Matt toured the country as a motivational speaker. So no, his TV gig isn’t his only source of income!
Owning the Entirety of Roloff Farms:
Matt is also the sole owner of Roloff farms. After his divorce from ex-wife Amy in 2016, Matt, who has since moved on with girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, bought the majority of her stake in Roloff farms in 2019. He later purchased the remaining acres from his ex in 2020 for $975,000, The Sun reported at the time.
However, there is no bad blood between Matt and Amy. In fact, Amy and her husband, Chris Marek, got married at Roloff farms and celebrated their big day on August 28, 2021, in a barn that Matt built just for the occasion.
