More TLC bonus scenes of Roloff family and Little People, Big World

TLC added a bunch of more bonus scenes that were not seen during the televised episodes of Little People, Big World.

Jeremy goes to college: Jeremy doesn't like the price of the text books. He also talks about what we reported last fall -- the high number of former Faith students (some went to the elementary school and then went to different high schools) and Roloff friends that were attending PCC. Jeremy makes the comment to two of his childhood friends, Bryan and Jake, that they probably know at least 25% of the students at PCC. Jeremy states that PCC is like an extension of high school.

Space bowl: Amy and Zach went to the Space Camp for LPs. They were asked trivia questions; Zach says he got every question wrong.

Fore: Amy practices golf in preparation for her Charity Golf Tournament. FYI: The woman she is golfing with, Lori, is one of Amy's good friends. She's the mother of a girl Jeremy and Zach have went to school with since first grade.

Outdoor time: Matt stresses the importances of being outdoors. Jacob likes to play video games because "It's my way of winning; in the real world I don't win that much". Matt and Jeremy offer to help him upgrade "his" fort; Jake would rather play video games. Jacob says Matt wanted to him to have a fort because Matt had them growing up and doesn't understand why he (Jacob) doesn't want one. This is what is known as "Jacob's fort". Perhaps it could be renamed "Matt's fort"? :-)

A New Ride: Another Roloff classic car. A Nova for Molly's 16th birthday present. Jeremy, Matt and two of Molly's friends pick it up; it looks great but has a few kinks.

Petting a baby lion: Meet Leo the Lion! For the Roloffs petting zoo during pumpkin season.

Charity Auction: Zach auctions off a gift at Amy's auction; the Portland Timbers soccer team donated a suite for a game; a lucky fan and their friends will be joined by Zach. Interesting; other than the obvious implications of Amy having her own charity foundation, this is probably the first time on the show (close enough! A bonus video filmed for the show) that LPBW acknowledge that the Roloffs are celebrities. Someone bought it for $750. Zach is nervous when he finds out the winning bidder is bringing 13 - 13 year old girls that he will host in the suite.

Excellent! Some of these clips are much better than what makes it in the tv episodes.

Jeremy at college is the best clip. Lots of nice views of Jeremy, lol :)

I don't understand why Jeremy is so concerned with cutting costs on the text books. He's rich!

Judy said...

Clip after clip of Jacob is proof that it's not editing. He is a rude kid. Period.

I couldn't agree more with Matt about the importance of getting kids outside and away from all the gadgets kids have today. Jeremy doesn't have that problem. It's too bad Jacob didn't pick that trait up from his big brother.

Listen to how rude Jacob is when he answers Matt. Then the sulky pouty face. I'm also sensing the unattractive "poor me" syndrome coming from Jacob, "I never win", poor poor kid. He is so unlike Matt and Jeremy. It's unfortunate.

Listen to how Jeremy conducts himself in the college clip. He is a very polite young man.

"Listen to how Jeremy conducts himself in the college clip. He is a very polite young man."

For the Roloffs I guess that's saying something (thinking of Amy pushing her way through the victorious UK team), but I'll remind you that the Roloffs do have a television crew filming them. They're more likely to be polite when on camera. That goes for the people they deal with too.

Judi - do you tell your children that if they aren't like you and your husband, if they don't share your interests and yor husband's interests, that you love them less?

Jeremy likes what Matt likes. Therefore Matt loves Jeremy more... and you seem to applaud that. A child who likes what the parent likes should be loved more and held up as the best one as liking something Dad or Mom doesn't like means they must love Dad or Mom less.

If Jake doesn't like being active (and thats frankly a spurious claim as we have seen Jake be very active despite his gamig love) then Matt has the right to love him less?

I mean, I believe the poor kid was recently slammed for not standing quietly and respectfully expressing gratitude for the opportunity to look at churches. What a evil little bastard he was, being SO active as to want to swim when he should be quietly sitting still in churches, listening to tour guides about history, art and architexture. He was WRONG to be an active kid! SO VERY WRONG that he was called ungrateful. (even though older brother Jer couldn't be expected to be bored at the dwarf games and needed special fun time)

Jake isn't into play forts (not a shocker at his age - I was much more surprised that Jeremy was into something so immature at sixteen as playing forts in the woods) and since he doesn't like something his dad likes, he's bad?

He's not like Matt or Jeremy so he's bad.

Tell me Judi - do you tell your kids if they aren't emulating Jeremy Roloff, you don't love them as much since Jeremy is perfect?

I really would like an answer - you and the christian set very much hold the gentle loving respect and bond ofMatt and Jeremy as something *matt's children* should emulate.... do you practice that in your home?

Tell your own kids to build play forts because Matt Roloff liked it as a kid and Matt's way is the right way?

Craw said...

Rap, why do you automatically defend Jake no matter what? You always ride Jer's butt for every little thing but you never go on about Jake. You don't even talk about him once, but for Jer you go on and on.

Matt loves Jeremy more because Jeremy is 10x the kid Jake is.

Rap541 said...

Jeremy is an adult. I know this is hard to understand, craw, but there are things that I don't like about Jeremy that I don't judge him too harshly for because of his age. Take for example, his lack of defens of his brother Zach at their birthday party at fourteen. I think as an older person now, he'd hopefully realized that he acted badly, but I hold Amy and Matt much more accountable for.... not correcting the bhavior at the time it occured.

Once Jake reaches an age where his behavior is on him, absolutely he's going to hear it. But if you'll look at what I wrote instead of knee jerk "I HATE JAKE AND SO SHOULD EVERY ONE PRAISE JEREMY!" you'd see that I make a valid point.

It's not about Jake not being active - he clearly enjoys being physical, playing soccer, swimming, etc. He's the bad kid today because Matt liked building play forts, and Jake's not into it.

Craw - do your parents tell you that they would love you more if you did things they liked? You understand if you have an interest they don't, they have every right, per you, to treat you as the bad child? Because as a Christian child emulating Jeremy Jesus, your parents don't have to love you as much if you don't like the things they like.

Judy said...

I'll turn the tables on you Rap and will speak to you as speak to others.

Tell me Rap! Yes or no?!? Was Matt right when he said kids should be active instead of sitting inside on their butts playing video games? Yes or no? Do you tell your kids Rap sit inside and play video games????? Don't do something active! You might die! That's what you tell your kids Rap? Matt is a bad parent for wanting Jacob to get outside and be active and creative. Do you agree with Matt or not? Answer question Rap. Why aren't you answering???

Was that Jeremy helping Matt with Jacob's fort? Yes it was! Are you saying it was not Jeremy? You have never seen Jeremy work outside? Do you think it's a lie to say Jeremy likes working outside on forts? What do YOU prefer Rap? For your son to be inside playing video games like Jacob George Jesus or should kids be outdoors doing something creative like Jeremy?

That's it Rap. You tell your kids be like Jacob Roloff! Sit inside and play video games. Maybe they'll even have their pants around their knees! Do you tell them that Rap? Be like Jacob? Play video games and expose their underwear?? Are you proud of kids likes that Rap??

(That was fun!)

Rap541 said...

I think video games are fine in moderation and that if Matt feels that strongly about video games, he's the parent and shouldn't be buying them for Jacob if he doesn't want Jake to play them. This isn't hard Judy - Matt's the parent and he's doing *nothing* and wondering why his kids don't listen.

Personally I think outdoor is nice but there's a point where "Jacob isn't active" is a spurious arguement - which is why you're refusing to acknowledge it. You bitched and moaned how he should have been deeply interested in European history and art and was WRONG to be bored in Europe. Wrong to want to SWIM (which btw indicates Jake has a love of the outdoors and God's creations as he wants to be in God's oceans).I've seen Jeremy sitting on the couch in his bedroom playing video games, and in the house playing video games.

There's nothing inherently more creative about being outdoors than being indoors. Frankly Judy, I have it on pretty good authority that Jer loves the outdoors so much because he likes to sample the herbalife and hiking a great way to dispurse the scent of weed.

I'm not the one out right stating Matt's way is te best way and he's got the right to rank his children in love order based on who kisses his butt enough and pretends to like what he likes. You're the one who states how wonderful the Matt and Jeremy relationship is... but you're not willing to emulate that parenting in your own life? WHy not? If it's so awesome?

Rap541 said...

And to specifically answer your questions, Judy - even though you certainly haven't answered mine (you likely don't have the strength of hcaracter to admit there's aspects of the Roloff lifestyle you personally don't like) -

No - as a blanket statement matt is not correct in stating being active is better than sitting on their buuts. Sorry, he's not. There's moderation in everything. I think for example, if Jeremy and Zach had been "sat on their butts" and made to do their school work before they blessed Jesus by running wild outdoors, they'd have done better in school.

"Do you tell your kids Rap sit inside and play video games????? "

Sometimes. (I assume we're talking hypothetical since I don't have children) When I have my niece over, we often play video games or watch movies. What I don't do is look down on the neice for enjoying fishing - a funfilled outdoor activity I don't especially care for, and I don't push her to do what I like (which is oddly enough soccer and going to hockey) because she's not me, and I always hated it when my mom forced me into activities I disliked simply because she liked them.


"Don't do something active! You might die! That's what you tell your kids Rap?

No not at all :)


"Matt is a bad parent for wanting Jacob to get outside and be active and creative. Do you agree with Matt or not?"

I don't really understand your question - Matt is a bad parent for supplying his son with video games and then complaining that his son plays with said video games. Matt is also a bad parent for expecting his sons to like what he likes. And since there's plenty of evidence that Jake is an active kid who doesn't spend every waking minute indoors, its a bit of a false arguement to begin with.


"Why aren't you answering???"

I do work ;)

"Was that Jeremy helping Matt with Jacob's fort? "
Yes

"Are you saying it was not Jeremy?"

No

"Do you think it's a lie to say Jeremy likes working outside on forts?"

No. I don't think what Jeremy likes is relevant to what Jake likes.

"What do YOU prefer Rap?"

Not really a yes or no question but... personally I am more of a secret cave hideaway sort :)

"For your son to be inside playing video games like Jacob George Jesus or should kids be outdoors doing something creative like Jeremy?"

A) I thought Jake was Satan?
B) Since both Jeremy and Jake play out doors and both play video games, I really have no preference. except that when Jake does physically active things, he's being bad, except when you're playing the Jeremy Does It So All Children Should Game. Which makes me wonder if you encourage your kids to drink beer and look at whores... since Jeremy does.

"You tell your kids be like Jacob Roloff! Sit inside and play video games. Maybe they'll even have their pants around their knees! Do you tell them that Rap? Be like Jacob? Play video games and expose their underwear?? "

Sure. Neither are crimes. All things in moderation. Personally I think its a stupid look (which is why I am not we see Jer-Bear doing it) but my hypothetical kids would figure it out. Video games are fine - even active if you have Wii. I'd rather deal with Jake's flaws than Jeremy's.

"Are you proud of kids likes that Rap??"

Yes. Playing video games and dressing in a silly fashion is something kids do. As is playing out doors. Playing outdoors isn't inherently valueless, but neither is it the be all and end all of child activities and you're unwilling to acknowledge that. Kids who play video games sometimes grow up to be the next Bill Gates. How shameful, huh? Being successful with computers is a sin.

in the car clip, molly's two friends were lucky they got to hang out with Jeremy :)

Expressed said...

lbw537, I thought the same thing :)I wonder how many of her friends have a crush on Jer? That's the incentive for "Um, lets hang out at your house Molly!":)
