Matt and Amy Roloff's youngest son finally opened up about why he really left Little People, Big World two years ago. In a video blog, Jacob expressed his thoughts about growing up in front of the media and why he chose to put that life behind. At one point, he also admitted to being rebellious against his family by leaving the show and even their religion.
Jacob, 20, poured out his thoughts through his YouTube channel Rock and Roloff, where he posts videos of his travels with girlfriend Izzy. He is currently taking a road trip which he previously described as a journey to self-discovery. Based on Jacob's photos on social media, he has since been to amazing places such as Yellowstone, Multnomah Falls in Oregon, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
The video's tone turned a little serious halfway through, in the scene where Jacob was driving. He started talking to his girlfriend Izzy about how people have a fixed image of him because he has such an online presence. Fans have seen Jacob on Little People, Big World since he was 9-years-old and now that he's 20, some are surprised to see that he's not the same young boy anymore.
"People reference things that I said, like, two years ago—even more than two years ago… And I remember at that time, I was very inflammatory. I said inflammatory things."
