New video of the Roloffs and friends at LP conferences from years past

There is a brand new video featuring several of the Roloffs and their friends at the LP conferences over the years. Roloff fans will want to be sure to check it out; there are some good pictures in the video that you've probably never seen before of the Roloffs when they were younger.

There are several pictures of Zach and Jeremy. A few of Jacob Mueller, one of Dan Meichtry. Several of some of Zach's LP friends that have been seen on the show often, Bill and Casey. I spotted Molly in the background once, Jacob in a group picture, a couple of Amy with her team and perhaps the real gem, a picture of Matt from the LP conference in the mid 1980s! I can see how Matt was a wrestling champion back in the day.

Thanks, that was awesome! Those conferences look like so much fun.

Debbie said...

Wow, Matt was a stud! lol. For real! Now I know why Amy married him right away! :)

Jenny said...

What happened to Jeremy at 0:58? Was he hurt? I can't tell if he looks unconscious/hurt or if he's just passed out. lol.

Matt was hot when he was younger. I didn't realize Matt was so goodlooking. Thats where Jeremy and Jacob gets their good looks.

christine said...

Jeremy is/was gorgeous. That picture of him at 1:35 is best picture I've ever seen of him when he was younger. I like his short hair now that he's older, but the long hair looked great on him when he was younger.

Anonymous said...

It looks like a blast! I wish I was part of it. They had great times. This should be the LPAs promo video for their conferences.

Jordan said...

So thats what really happens at the LP conventions when the TLC cameras get turned off...all the fun happens then! :)

Vicky said...

I agree. That pic of Jer at 1:35 answers the debate about who was the best looking Roloff kid. Jake is cute, but Jeremy one up'd him! What a beautiful looking kid. The Roloffs are a very good looking family.

Cathy said...

This is the first time I've ever thought Matt was good looking. He really was! He's very handsome there. Ready to take the world by its tail! Young and full of vigor.

Emily said...

I can't decide who is the best looking guy in that video? Matt, Jeremy, or the kid with the dye red/purple hair? Why doesn't Zach hang out with that kid more??

Roxanne said...

Why doesn't Scott ever go to those LP conferences? lol. Dan, Mueller, but not Scott? I think Jeremy was cuter when he was young like the main picture.

Chris said...

Jenny, about Jer at 58 seconds, I think it was just too much fun for Jer to handle *wink*. I look like that after downing a bottle of vodka! Maybe they did shots and Jeremy lost! ;-)

Jocelynn said...

That was great, thanks! I wish I had memories like that. They look like sweet friends. I agree with all the comments about the Jeremy picture at 1:35. How old is he there? He was a really, really cute looking kid!

Anonymous said...

They are very good looking, but both Jeremy and Zach look trashed in several of the pictures....so do the friends....maybe it was just the late nights, but.....

Julie said...

You can see why Zach needed braces. He has nice blue eyes though. I agree that Zach and Jeremy look like they party hard at those LP "conferences". I think they do more than "confer". Ha. Looks like they have fun though.

Dana said...

I love this video. It looks like SO much fun! Jer is breath taking in that picture. No wonder why he was star of those things back then. It's a great picture of Amy at 1:22 too.

Rob said...

That video is the bomb! Lots of times in the video Jeremy looks like he's ready to pass out and it looks like he did at 1:35. LOL.

Abder said...

Where is Jen Montzingo? I don't see her. Her brother is one of the old group pictures, but I don't see her.

Dwarffed said...

They are not that sweet. Trust me I know from first hand experience. Why do people think LP are any different than any other segment of society? Everybody at the conferences are not one big happy family like it looks like and it's that way because of that group in the video. Why do you think the Roloffs are always with the same group of 8 or 10 people through the years?
It's no different than High School and the cool kids act like they're better than the rest. The Roloffs friends there are rich snobs. They are not welcoming to all LPs there. They tagged someone I know on Facebook in one of their pictures from Detroit 08. I saw their album. There is a picture of 2 of the Roloffs friends in that video with me in the background. All their comments are mocking me. They are a word that I won't say here, but it rhymes with "witches".

Amy Roloff is a truly nice person, but Zach and Jeremy are rude snobs who are too busy being cool with their Sunset Beach crowd of LP friends.

PS, Jeremy always ends up out cold on the floor of LP conferences from what I've seen and heard. I don't know if he just gets tired and crashes or if he's just a lightweight. I'm not a cool dwarf nor am I rich, I don't hang around them to see how it all goes down.

monica said...

You can practically see Zach overcome his shyness as the video gets more current.

Brooke said...

That Bill is the guy who broke the table at the hotel on the show. He's giving the camera the finger and sliding down an escalator handle! Then there is Jeremy drenched in water. Bill is like the LP version of Jeremy.

Natalie said...

Thanks for this. I'm glad I watched it. Matt was telling the truth when he said about Jeremy being the star of the LP cons and over shadowing Zach when he was younger. Theres more pictures of Jeremy than Zach and they all look like Jeremy is the center of attention.

zach fan said...

i think zach looks cute with his friends in that video. great vid! zach looks really hot at the table.

i'm in shock that matt was so hot back then! i feel creepy thinking matt was hot because he's my dad's age now. LOL.

DJ said...

LOL @ Jeremy sitting under the water fountain/fall at 2:27. Jeremy's a real character.

Stephanie said...

Bill and Jeremy look like they're the life of the party. I bet Amy is glad that Bill is not Jeremy's twin. They would create havoc together!

O la la about Matt and that picture. That is why Amy snapped him as fast as she did. What a looker!

Expressed said...

All those LP girls are lucky to get to hang out with somebody as cool and good looking as Jeremy all those years. It shows what a great person Jeremy is, he doesn't treat them any differently and doesn't act like he's too good for them.

Dwarffed, if they were making fun of you, you probably deserved it. You kind of sound like a "witch" yourself...coming here calling the Roloffs and their LP friends snobs.

Jason said...

Casey has some major cleavage. I never realized. lol!

Cheryl said...

The LP girls are cute. So is Jeremy! I think the blonde girl that looks like Casey likes Jeremy! :)

Does Casey have a twin?

Anonymous said...

A lot of nice pictures there. The picture of Matt is the best I've seen of him obviously. The picture of Jeremy is the best I've seen of him when he was young. The picture of Zach at the table with the girl at 2:40 is the best picture I've ever seen of Zach.

Amber said...

I can't believe how much Jeremy has changed. He doesn't even look like the same person.

The picture of Matt is very good. He must have been the catch of LPA conference. Didn't Matt say Amy actually pursued him? I know why now.

CJ said...

imo, jeremy was a better looking kid when he was younger than he is now that he's a bit older. his blond hair looks great with his face.

Ryan said...

I'm surprised Zach is dancing with so many girls in the video. The show makes it sound like Zach never dances. Apparently that's not true.

Laura said...

Nice video, thanks! Matt and Jer rock!

Brokenwing said...

That was a really nice video. It's too bad some people need to be negative. It's good friends having good times.

Considering how many people talk trash about Jeremy, he sure does seem to have a charming personality that make those around him like his company. They are always laughing and smiling with Jeremy.

"Dwarffed" must you insert your negative comments when they are not here to defend themselves? I agree with Dana. Maybe they didn't like you because you were rude. Whatever it was, in my opinion, it's classless for you to name call people who can't defend themselves.

JeremyJames fan said...

I think Jeremy is 12 or 13 in the stunning picture at a minute 35. Jacob Roloff is 12 now.

Jeremy definitely has better looks than Jacob. Some people don't say so, but that's just because they're biased against Jeremy because of the racist stuff or they think he's a jerk. He has much nicer facial structure. His lips, mouth and nose....he was a beautiful looking kid and he's a handsome/sexy young man now.

JeremyJamesFan said...

I need to put in a good word for Matt too! Matt is still good looking now, but when he was young like that picture? Hubba hubba! lol.

Matt looks like he was the center of the conference too. Jer takes right after Matt. God blessed Matt so much with Jeremy.

Rap541 said...

Because Jeremy is so AWESOME, its simply impossible that anyone would find him less than SUPERPERFECT! I mean - its simply ALWAYS A LIE when people say they have met Jeremy and he wasn't INCREDIBLE! If Jer calls you a b*tch - you are ONE because Jeremy is such a great judge and a fine Christian so you need to put on your official b*tch sign because JEREMY HAS DECIDED!

Correct me if I am wrong - but it is simply impossible for anyone to honestly not like this kid because of his behavior, correct Jeremy fans? Jeremy is always the best, and anyone who has a problem with anything he says or does is just hateful on Jeremy and there's NEVER any truth in the snob comments even though multiple people have commented on this sort of behavior? Everyone who has a negative opinion of Jeremy is simply always lying?

You Jeremy fans do understand you are calling people liars and telling them they deserve what they get, right? I mean, I assume you're "just acting Christian like Jeremy" and will justify your nasty remarks but really - how exactly do any of you know that a)Dwarffed is lying b)Dwarffed deserved to be called a b*tch by Jeremy Roloff?

I would really like to know how all negative opinions of Jeremy are always lies by awful people who deserve to called names.

Anonymous said...

??????? Seems as though the video is no longer available.

Natalie said...

The video is gone already? That didn't last long. I guess they didn't like fans looking at it? Well, I'm glad I got to see it while I did!

Rap, I think Dwarffed was calling some of the LP girls the Roloffs hang out with a "W*itch", not Jeremy. There were 4 or 5 girls LP girls throughout the video in the Roloff group.

I did take Dwarffed'ss message to mean that Jeremy and Zach were snobs to LPs not in their group.

It's hard to judge not knowing the story. They looked pretty young in some of those pictures. Their group is probably tight because of that. I doubt it's because of money like Dwarffed implied. Although I do think the LPs the Roloffs hang out with do seem like the "cool" LPs if you know what I mean.

Angela said...

C'mon Rap. It was friends having fun. Sure they look like they can be rowdy and obnoxious, perhaps some of the more insecure dwarfs like "Dwarffed" don't like that, but they are there to celebrate and have a good time.

There are what, usually 2000 to 3000 LPs at a conference? The Roloffs and their friend can't party with all 2000. I guess Dwarffed feels left out and is taking it personally.



Sounds to me like perhaps Dwarffed liked one of the girls in the Roloffs crowd and they didn't share his feelings. It happens when people go out to party.

I'm surprised Dwarffed is saying this. Isn't Jen Montzingo in the Roloff group although she wasn't in the video very much. It's true people can act differently in groups, but from some of the topics she writes about in her blog I wouldn't expect anybody to say that she is part of the "Mean Lps" who make fun of the less popular people there.

I can realistically imagine that Bill and Jeremy do put some people off because they seem so out there (evidence in the video!). Some probably think they're obnoxious and rude and some think they're lots of fun. I'm of the latter opinion.

Dana said...

Rap, you're unbelievable. You're always hating on Jeremy's friends in Hillsboro, now you're hating on Jeremy's LP friends.

Angela is right. There are over 2000 people at these things. You want Jeremy to become best buds with all 2000 or else he's a rude snob?

Dwarffed sounds jealous and by posting what he did he shows why they probably didn't want to hang around with him.

Rap541 said...

So in otherwords, people who haven't met Jeremy know better than someone who has and therefore the person who has met Jeremy deserves to be name called?

I mean just so we're clear, watching a video from several years ago trumps actually meeting Jeremy - people who have only watched the video have more knowledge of Jeremy than anyone who has met Jeremy in person? The only reasonable answer is as always - Jeremy is a wonder boy and anyone who says others is a jealous sad little hater who will never be like Jeremy?

I mean really - is the show really teaching 'if an average height boy shows attention to a dwarf girl, she should feel blessed at the attention of a normal boy since she's a dwarf and can't really expect to get a *nice boy like Jeremy*?'

Thats the best an LP girl can hope for? To get nothing but the passing attention of an average height boy who really has no interest in them when he's not at an LP con?
That's what the show has taught you? Little people should consider themselves blessed if an average height person spends time with them?

Rap541 said...

Come on, Dana, is anyone who speaks against Jeremy a Liar? Is Dwarffed just a jealous liar? You talk big, Dana - now say it. Is Dwarffed LYING? Just Jealous because Jeremy is average hieght, talking to the ladies he will *never* date? I mean, you aren't suggesting Jeremy (the normal, good looking one) is going to pick an LP girl, are you? Really?

Are all the lp girls to consider themselves lucky if Jeremy pays them attention? If so, why Dana? Why should an LP girl be happy to be an average height boy's three day girlfriend? Who are Jeremy's LP friends? Who are Jeremy's lp *girlfriends*? What LP girl does Jeremy see when he's NOT at a con?

Why is someone who has met Jeremy ALWAYS A LIAR if the opinion isn't super positive?

Dana said...

Rap, what on earth are you talking about?

The LP girls in the video who are Zach's AND Jeremy's friends and have been going to the convs with them for years are their FRIENDS. They have FUN. They aren't trying to date Jeremy. Some of them even have boyfriends and they all are friends with Jeremy and Zach.

I think "Dwarffed" is jealous that he's not part of their group and he's being a being petty and not Christian like to come to this site and bash the Roloffs and their friends calling them snobs.

I'm sure Dwarffed thinks they are snobs. Is he lying? I'm sure that's what he thinks but his OPIONION doesn't make it true.

Boohoo, they didn't like him enough to hang out with him and now he's bashing them.

Rap, how about backing up your comments? You said "and there's NEVER any truth in the Jeremy is a snob comments even though multiple people have commented on this sort of behavior?

Who are the "multiple" people that have called Jeremy a snob that know him? Fans do, but they don't. LPs don't. Dwarffed is the first and only LP I've heard call Jeremy AND their friends snobs.

That tells me that Dwarffed is the one with the problem.

Brokenwing said...

Dana, only Rap could turn a happy and fun video of friends having good times since childhood into a session to criticize Jeremy Roloff and his friends all because some disgruntled person who doesn't have any class, posts to call them names.

Rap, read Dwarffed's message. What is he bashing them for? He's criticizing them because they are a tight-knit group of friends who have known each for a long time and he seems upset that he's not part of their group.

Is that not jealousy?

By the way, Dwarffed said:

"Amy Roloff is a truly nice person, but Zach and Jeremy are rude snobs who are too busy being cool with their Sunset Beach crowd of LP friends."
========

If you take Dwarffed's word as gospel, why are you only going on about Jeremy? It sounds like Dwarffed's main problem is with the girls who Jeremy and Zach hang around with anyway.

I don't think it's right or very classy for Dwarffed to bad mouth people. IF he is really a LP who was at the conference (because people can say whatever they like) I doubt he would come to a blog like this just to bash people in his own community.

Every LP I've talked to and seen talk about the Roloffs, love them and are very grateful to all the members of the family and would never go on the internet and call them snobs.

Andrea said...

I'm glad I watched it when I did. I missed the graduation party pictures and I missed the soup video, but I saw this one! woot woot!

Why do the Roloffs or their friends put things out and then take it away when people watch it? Is it that big of a deal if people see it?

A few comments from what I remember when I watched it earlier today.

The main picture of Jeremy was very nice. He looks better when he looks "normal" and isn't clowning around with a cheesie grin.

One of the other pictures of Jeremy from a long time ago must have been when he was 13. He had the same red shirt on that he was wearing in Big Dreams for the birthday party.

Jeremy definitely does look more out-going than Zach at the conventions. Jeremy was usually laughing or doing something funny. Zach was sitting back looking quiet in many of the pictures.

That Bill looks like lots of fun, but too wild. I would hate to be another guest in the hotel or be working in the hotel when he is there.

Lots of Red Bulls and maybe a few other drinks in the video :)

Not sure if Mueller looked hung over or just tired. The top of side of Jeremy's head was cut off by the edge of the picture/video but he Jeremy looked like he was slouched over sleeping.

I don't know the name of the girl, but she was in the video a lot, she has very pretty eyes. She had light brown hair.

It was nice to see Matt looking so good and healthy. Amy has said she was shy when she was younger, it must have taken her a lot of courage to "chase" Matt. I think he would have been quite the catch at the LP conferences back then.

Maybe it's the ages since most of the Little People in the video seem to be Zach and Jer's age, but I'm surprised there were almost no pictures of Molly, even in the large group shots. Mueller is in a few, but not Molly.

About the "Dwarffed" controversy, I'm glad to hear that at least Amy is nice to everyone. If Dwarffed's story is legit, Amy must be disappointed that Jeremy and Zach are thought of that way, especially by other Little People.
Amy doesn't sound like she was socially "cool" when she was younger, I wonder how she would have been treated by Zach/Jeremy/Bill/Casey/Lexi/the boyfriend/ and a few others that were in the video?

If Casey and their friends (I think the blonde girl that looks like Casey is named Lexi) make fun of LP they don't know well because they aren't "cool" they should be ashamed because isn't that the whole purpose of conferences, a place where they won't be ridiculed?

David said...

I'm sorry to judge people based on appearance, but if there was ever an LP girl who looked like she would be a nasty you know what like DWARFFED described it is the girl pictured with the Roloffs. She is thin and wearing a very nice and what must be very expensive black dress.

Dwarffed's post did make me stop and think. There are probably different factions and clubs among any gathering of people and the friends the Roloffs hang out with don't seem to be the shy and lacking self confidence crowd.

Anonymous said...

I really liked it. I want to watch it again :(

Mark said...

I'm grateful there wasn't audio on the pictures besides the song, because Jeremy and the little dude Bill looked like they were always YELLING!!!

They must rack up noise complaints at those things.

Ally said...

You can't blame Jer for having a great time or the LP girls and guys for having a great time with him.

It seems like it took Zach a few years to loosen up and have a good time with good friends. He should have listened to Jeremy sooner. He would have got in on the fun earlier.

From the pictures in the video, it's clear Jer knows how to Par-tay! lol.

CrawCraw said...

Vicky, it shouldn't even be a debate about Jeremy VS Jacob in any way.

Jeremy was, is and always will be better looking than Jacob. The thumbnail of the video picture is proof. Jacob looks like any kid with dark hair. Jeremy stands out.

Personality, can you imagine Jacob having fun with people like Jeremy does? He would either get hurt or run off in a tantrum.

Third, Dwarffed said one thing that made sense. The dwarf world is the same as the rest, there are fun, positive and cool people that people want to be around and there are the losers...

Tom said...

By the way, LP playing against average size kids on a regulation field and goals is harder for dwarfs. The DAAA plays with smaller goals to make it easier for them.

The fact the Brazilians play on a normal field and still win proves how good they are.

After seeing all this talk, I hope the Brazilians are there and destroy Zach's team.

Rap broke the video. LOL

Rap541 said...

Heck, I only watched it once - don't blame me ;)

Erica said...

Jeremy was much cuter when he was younger! <3

Em said...

"Jeremy was much cuter when he was younger!"

He's still cute now, Erica! ;)

But I agree he was a cute looking boy when he was younger. I wish there were more pictures of Jeremy around that age. I think he was a cuter boy than Jake is now.

Nora said...

The video doesn't work for me? Where can I see the full video? I want to see it.

I agree Jeremy was adorable. I want to see it without the giant play button over the side of his head.

Em, Jeremy was much cuter than Jacob. I think people say Jacob is cute because there isn't anything else nice to say about that little terror.

Expressed said...

Nora, like most things on here, after Spirits posted the link to the video, they took down the video :(

That is a great picture of Jeremy.

"Jeremy was much cuter than Jacob. I think people say Jacob is cute because there isn't anything else nice to say about that little terror"

I agree totally :) I like Jeremy's blonde hair when he was younger too.
