With all the new additions to Little People, Big World, countless fans are asking — what happened to Jacob Roloff? And why isn't he on the show? And we finally have an answer — he's not on the reality series because he’s off on his own adventure!
Fans of the hit TLC series love tuning in to catch up with the Roloff family — but many of them are wondering why the family’s youngest son has been missing on the series for the past two years. When the rebellious Roloff son turned 18, he decided not to renew his contract with TLC — and he’s been doing his own thing ever since.
But it looks like the 20-year-old couldn’t stay away from the camera for too long. He recently launched a YouTube channel with his 21-year-old girlfriend, Isabel Rock, and the young couple set off to explore the Pacific North West on a three-week road trip during the summer — and they documented it on their video blog.
Over the summer, they posted their first-ever episode, and they teased what viewers can expect from their miniseries. “All these places have a lot to offer, we’ve probably driven through them on road trips but never really appreciated their beauty so I’m really excited to be able to do that,” Isabel said.
“These videos are going to be kind of a mix of dog life, travel life, just talking and stuff. We’ll pretty much just show you scenery and tell you what we’re doing that day or something and then also talks and stuff while we’re driving,” Jacob added, and Isabel revealed that her favorite part about road tripping are the talks they have on the long drives.
But it seems like they were struggling without the TLC camera crew because they kept reminding each other to look at the camera and not themselves. They also revealed that they’ll be editing and filming with their smartphones. At about halfway through their first episode, the camera phone they were using fell and Isabel had to pause to pick it up. “Lord help us all,” she said.
