For anyone who isn't following Matt on Facebook or Twitter
Matt confirmed what we reported months ago, that Wednesday was the official first day of filming for the new season 6 of LPBW.
The episodes that viewers are seeing currently on Mondays are referred to as Season 5 Part B.
The seasons usually film from about May to November.
Traditionally the Roloffs usually talk as though they take it season by season and hint during contract negotiation that they might be ready to step away from the spotlight, however, recently Matt has changed his tune, suggesting that they have no plans of ending the show. He also has said if Jeremy and Zach transfer from PCC to a 4 year college, that cameras will follow them there.
On a final note: We always try to be fair and give credit where credit is due. People have differing opinions on what a celebrities fan interaction on the internet should be like. For quite sometime I've voiced that personally, I thought the Roloffs should be more appreciative and involved with their fans than they were. For a while it was almost non-existent.
Matt then suggested that TLC was encouraging them to use twitter or a fan facebook. Recently, Matt stated that (obviously for Season 6 and beyond) that their exclusivity language in their contract with TLC has changed and it gives them more freedom to express themselves on the internet.
Regardless of the real reason or motivation, I give Matt credit for how he's handling the fan Facebook and twitter (he's using both, but the Fan Facebook page appears to be his more central home for social networking).
A lot of people are skeptical of Matt's attention span for fan interaction items, but thus far, he certainly can't be faulted and should be commended, in my opinion. He's using it frequently. He's posting pictures occasionally. Sometimes he will comment to a fan if they make a comment to his post or to a picture he posted. Now he's pretty much doing the things that keeps their fans happy. So kudos to Matt for stepping up to the plate.
Amy sometimes "tweets" from her charity foundation site. (Amy is in Holland at the moment).
Jeremy and Zach Roloff, who are now 11 days away from their 20th birthday and despite collecting their own paychecks for the show, still do virtually nothing as far as fan interaction. Any fan Facebooks or twitter accounts for Jeremy, Zach and Molly are impostors.
