Matt Roloff Interview; Jacob Had A Confrontation With A Fan
According to Matt, some time ago, during filming at an amusement park, Jacob had an encounter with over-zealous fans that left him jaded and scared.
Matt Roloff was a guest on a local morning show in Portland -- KATU. Matt and Amy have been guests on this show many times.
The biggest or most interesting news that Matt hasn't talked about before came when the host asked Matt if there was a strain on the kids from being on television. Matt said they don't regret the experience, but there were definitely strenuous times.
"For example, Jacob the youngest, he was 6 or 7 when we started filming. He had an experience with an over-zealous fan when we were at an amusement park filming an episode -- it got kind of physical and ugly with him and these older people and it jaded him about people and he became scared. So all in all, you have these great experiences, then you have this one experience with a child. I'm sure Jacob kind of grew up knowing that mom and dad were always distracted with the producers doing the show, but all in all, I think the kids loved the experience and wouldn't trade it for anything."
Matt also explains that people ask him if the content on the show was editing or not -- Matt says there was definitely a lot of editing but it wasn't black and white. Some episodes are highly edited or stacked together while other episodes just let the camera roll and reality is such that they hardly did any editing.
Matt said a lot of his arguing with Amy was about the production process.
They posted this video link on the Roloff Farms Facebook page. Amy commented on it that she learned some things from Matt's interview too.
