I've seen some people talk about the latest Roloff episode and refer to the home they stayed in Orlando as the place the Roloffs "rented".
I think most people that watch Little People Big World realize the Roloffs don't pay for very much. TLC arranges it. This is an interesting article explaining how the Roloffs vacation home we saw came about.
"I was approached by a marketing firm from one of our associations to host the Roloff family as they were coming to Orlando to film a segment of their show “Little People, Big World”. I must admit, I have not seen a lot of episodes, however, the ones I’ve caught were very interesting and I hugely appreciate the integrity, drive and tenacity of Amy and Matt – the mom and dad.
The marketing firm told me that the show draws about 7 million viewers per week on TLC (The Learning Channel). They also said “TLC is dedicated to high-quality, intelligent and relatable non-fiction entertainment that inspires, engages, informs and unites the audience in the spirit of life’s possibilities. TLC intimately connects more than 94 million homes in North America. TLC is currently one of the largest cable television networks in the United States, producing more than 800 hours of award-winning original programming.” After hearing this, I thought that it might give us a great opportunity to show the country what a vacation home from Global Resort Homes is all about."
Follow the link to read the rest of the article. It's interesting to learn how things come together on the show. I wonder if there are still any viewers that still believe that the Roloffs, like most families, actually pay for their vacation spots? I'm not knocking them for their free spots, but I do wonder how many viewers are rather naive in what they believe about the show. This is the note Amy left the owners in the Guest book. That was nice gesture on Amy's behalf.
“Thanks so much for opening your home to us. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The pool, hot tub, air hockey & pool table were the perfect compliment to our daily excursions in and around Orlando. Staying in a house gave a new dimension to our vacation, and my family will enjoy the memories of our stay for many years to come.”
