Jacob Roloff Quits Little People Big World, Exposes Fakery in EPIC Parting Shot

Jacob Roloff will never return to Little People, Big World. 

The 19-year-old has not appeared on the show for two-years, but he made it crystal clear that he is not interesting in returning in any capacity

He took to Instagram to hit out at how fake the show really is.

"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," he wrote.

"I'm posting this to say that that will never happen."

This all seems to have come out of nowhere considering he patched things up with his mother after not talking to her for quite some time. 

He then delved deeper into his reasons for not wanting to participate on the show. 

Reality TV shows are constantly under scrutiny about how real they actually are, but it's rare for the stars of the show to brand them as fake. 

To wit, Roloff opened up about a recent camping trip on the show and just how manipulated the whole charade was. 

"For the sake of 'the episode' and ratings I've seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives," he said.

"And when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn't stop laughing."

"Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are."

He wasn't done there, either, taking things one step further by slamming the family as they appear on the show. 

"The family that is filmed is not my family," he said.

"They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself."


Doesn't leave much room for interpretation there, does he?

Guy is clearly bitter and venting a lot of deep-seated resentment - both at the network and perhaps, on some level, his own family.

Jacob is the son of Matt and Amy Roloff, whose life journey has been chronicled for years on the popular reality program.

Along with siblings Jeremy, Molly and Zachary, Jacob has long played a role (a character, as he puts it) in the show's success.

Sounds like those days have come to an end, however.

He sure seems like his decision is final, but might his family be able to talk him into appearing on the show once more?

Could this have an affect on the show's ratings - or might it have the opposite effect, driving curious viewers to watch more intently?

Will his family address his claims in an upcoming episode?
