For those of us who have been watching Little People, Big World since the Roloffs first arrived on the scene in the mid-2000s, you may have noticed there have been a few, uh, “casting changes.” While much of the show focuses on life-after-divorce for Amy and Matt, there are also entire storylines dedicated to Zach and Jeremy as they navigate the new worlds of marriage and parenthood — but noticeably absent are the twin’s younger siblings, Molly and Jacob Roloff.
Jacob, 22, has been pretty candid about why he no longer does the show — while 26-year old Molly’s absence has been a lot more mysterious! So what do we know about Molly?
Is Molly Roloff Married?
Yes! Molly’s now-husband, Joel Silvius, popped the question just days before Christmas in 2016, and it was clear from social media that the entire family was absolutely elated for Molly and her husband-to-be, who exchanged vows in August 2017.
What Does Molly Roloff Do?
According to LinkedIn, the former reality star studied accounting in Spokane, WA — far from her family’s farm in Oregon — and decided to settle in Spokane with her new hubby. Unlike Jacob, Molly does make some (albeit infrequent) appearances on the show.
Is Molly Roloff Estranged From Her Family?
Not at all. In fact, Molly pops up pretty often on her mom’s Instagram profile. She was definitely around for Jacob’s wedding to Isabel Rock, too. She couldn’t attend Isabel’s bachelorette party, but there were no hard feelings — as Amy explained, “She would have loved to be there. But she lives in Spokane and wasn’t able to make it.”
Jacob, on the other hand, once explained why he no longer appears on the TLC show. In his book, Out to See, he wrote, “Among so many things, I simply did not want this ridiculous reality TV to use up so much of my time, lest it leave too deep an imprint on my ability to influence the world otherwise … I did not want this imposition to become my identity, and so I rebelled in the manner that I did, and eventually exited the show.” Instead, he and Isabel focus on traveling, and often give updates on their journey with their dog over on Instagram.
Well, to each their own! Jacob may have distanced himself a bit more from the show, but we hope Molly shows up now and then so fans can get an update on how she and her husband are doing these days.
