The rumor mill has been swirling with reasons as to why the youngest Roloff, Jacob, decided to leave their TLC show, “Little People, Big World.”
There were a handful of reports saying Jacob didn’t get along with many of his family members. Meanwhile, Jacob said in a blog post that he thought the show, as a whole, was more fake than reality and that he didn’t necessarily agree with the religion his family practices.
But recent photos showed Jacob interacting with his family at his sister Molly Silvius’s wedding:

Jacob Roloff everybody. We've been in separate states for a good long while so it's been very nice to get some quality time with him again as he's been helping me a lot on our house renovations. I'm a DIY kinda guy so with a little brother and some YouTube, anything is possible. He's a smart dude with a good heart. My mom calls us the bookends, spend 10 minutes with us and you'll know why.
The photos have led people to wonder whether the 20-year-old made amends with his siblings and whether he would be coming around more often:
Some took the recent photos as an opportunity to praise Amy for staying strong during the years Jacob allegedly rebelled against his family:
However, according to Amy, that’s not necessarily the case.
Amy posted a photo of her playing with Jacob’s dog:
And when commenters pointed out Jacob’s resurgence in the family’s photos (and lives), Amy pointed out that he never left in the first place:
He’s always been around, except when he was living in Cali, just not on the show the last couple of seasons.
So, while it doesn’t seem like Jacob has any intention of becoming a regular on their show again, it does appear that all of the stories dragging Jacob through the dirt for rebelling against his family were just that, stories.
It looks like the Roloff family is as strong as ever, despite the bumps in the road they’ve hit along the way.
