Jacob Roloff is best known for being one of the stars of the TLC hit show – Little People, Big World. The show began airing in 2006 and has been on the air ever since. Jacob Roloff’s family is the focus of the show, and it tells the story of a family with most of its members affected by Dwarfism. Jacob has been an integral part of the show since its debut.
Jacob Roloff’s Early life & Age
Jacob Roloff was born on the 17th of January, 1997 to Amy and Mathew Roloff in Oregon, United States. His father – Matthew Roloff is an author, a motivational speaker, business entrepreneur, and an actor. His mother, Amy, is also a television personality. He has three siblings, a sister – Molly, and two brothers – Jeremy and Zachary. Both his parents and one of his siblings are affected by Dwarfism.
Like most of his family members, Jacob is a fan of soccer and is an amazing player like his siblings.
Jacob later dropped out of high school after he chose to study independently from home but he eventually completed his formal high school education. Presently, he has no plans of going to university.
The young lad is currently very active on social media, especially Instagram and Twitter. He currently has over 28,000 followers on Twitter and more than 220,000 followers on Instagram. Presently, he does not have a facebook account.
Salary and Net Worth
Jacob currently has a total net worth of $300,000. This is as a result of his career as a reality television star. He was previously a main cast member on Little People, Big World, which focuses on the dwarfism in his family.
Jacob’s family owns a farm where many vegetables are grown but they are most famous for their pumpkins. The farm also doubles as a tourist destination.
He eventually left the show in its ninth season as he never liked the fact that he was on a reality show, especially from the tender age of nine.
While his net worth is a modest amount, no one can say he didn’t earn it.
The family frequently used a trebuchet on the family farm during pumpkin season to launch pumpkins as part of a promotion. Jacob and Mike got injured when the family trebuchet launch was prematurely triggered on the 28th of October, 2006.
Jacob was taken to Portland’s Legacy Emanuel Medical Center where underwent an important surgery to remove a small piece of his skull which had pushed into his brain. The surgery helped relieve a swelling in his head. By the 30th of October, just a few days later, Jacob and Mike recovered from their injuries and were released from the hospital.
Though the camera crew for their show was on the farm during the accident, they were not around the area where the accident occurred and as such there is no footage of the accident. The family later included footage taken just after the accident on their show where Jacob can be seen lying on the floor near the Trebuchet after the accident.
Jacob’s parents – Amy and Matt – released a brief segment before their new episodes, thanking everyone for their support after the accident. The next time Jacob was shown on the show – there was an injury around his right eye.
Is He Gay Or Straight?
Through his activity on social media, footage on his family’s reality show and his dating history, there is no indication that Jacob Roloff is a gay man. All the evidence, in fact, points to him being straight.
He is currently in a relationship with a woman and all indications point to the fact that he is very happy, content and most importantly, in love.
Jacob Roloff’s Girlfriend
