On this week's episode of Little People, Big World, Zach Roloff and Jeremy Roloff appeared to be bond over their similar states in life.
At the time of filming, both Zach and Jeremy were expecting children, with the former welcoming a son into the world just a couple weeks ago.
The brothers laughed about how cute baby clothing is and Jeremy predicted that Zach and Tori would NOT have a little person.
This prediction proved false, however, as we now know little Jackson is a dwarf.
Watching the episode (which you can do down below), one would think Zach and Jeremy were the very best of friends.
One would think these siblings were very tight and got along awfully well.
But questions have arose over their relationship, as some fans of this TLC series think a major rivalry is afoot based on which brother will inherit the family farm.
And patriarch Matt Roloff appeared to play into this rumored feud on Tuesday night after Jeremy and wife Audrey learned they were having a daughter.
“A girl will be a better influence,” Zach said.
"Yeah, I think so. She’ll be sweet,” Matt agreed during this conversation, but he then added, sort of cryptically:
“Your little boy can be the king of the farm.”
Yes: King of the Farm.
This pretty random mention got viewers talking on message boards and on the official Little People, Big World Facebook page.
It sure sounds like Matt is planning to hand the farm over to Zach because he has a natural, male heir, doesn't it?
Is Zach Roloff really posing here with the future "King" of his family's farm?
Stated a Facebook follower in response to this remark:
“That little comment Matt said about Zach son being the king of the farm I did not like! I’m sorry but I know Many don’t like Jer and Aud but I think they are a unique couple."
Jeremy and Audrey just moved to Portland, Oregon in order to be closer to their family.
Did they make this decision with the farm in mind? Do they plan on spending a lot more time there now so that Jeremy can remain a contender to take it over some day?
Seems possible, doesn't it?
Commenting on the latest Little People, Big World episode, another viewers couldn't help but take note of Zach's response after he discovered that Jeremy was having a girl.
"Check out Zach laughing and rubbing it in on Jeremy after the gender reveals shows he and Andrey are having a girl,” this person wrote, adding:
“Zach has felt less than all his life now he knows his dad will favor his boy. Matt even told Zach last night the little boy will be king of the farm.”
Jeremy admitted on the series that he wanted to be the father to a boy, but not due to any kind of inheritance.
He simply said he hoped that he and Zach’s son could become best friends who “wrestle around on the farm."
Alas, it will now need to be a girl and a boy who do said wrestling, with Jackson Roloff already born and Jeremy's daughter due in September.
But will it someday be these same kids doing battle over ownership of the family estate?
THAT'S the question!
