Matt made a new video update that he posted on You Tube.
Some people are saying they had a hard time hearing Matt, so our Guest Episode Reviewer -- Rap541 -- decided to get back into the swing of things for your entertainment and recap Matt's video. All opinions belong to Rap.

Matt is “changing it up” by filming in front of his office fireplace. Someone has suggested he recap his week, and as a private citizen with no desire or need for attention from the public, here Matt is. I mean, far be it for me to point out that people who genuinely want to slip back into their private lives after a lengthy tv show usually skip the demands from fans for special videos and weekly chats (that’s a shout out to Amy who is also making extra special effort to remain in the public eye).
So… Monday! Matt did paperwork with his bookkeeper and paid insurance. That sounds a lot like my Monday except I also watched House. Matt mentions his stool business and the farm and his speaking business and Amy’s speaking business. This apparently took all day.
Tuesday - Matt was downtown talking to lawyers about his adventure park he’s putting up and the big land deal it involves. And of course he’s in such demand for shows that his lawyers also needed to check out deals for that. Matt notes that he has multiple attorneys working on his deals.
By the way, maybe I am just believing crazy stories but… is an amusement park really a viable business in northern states? We had them where I grew up in the northeast but it’s a pretty seasonal business and the parks had a tendency to… change ownership/go bankrupt even in the best of times.
Wednesday - Amy left so Matt had to deal with the kids. I would be a lot more sympathetic if in theory, he wasn’t making it sound like he was playing Mr. Mom to four toddlers. Really, two of the Roloff children are grown men. If Jeremy and Zach still need Daddy to tell them to do their home work and make sure the refrigerator is full, then I really don’t care to hear how they’re mature young men making it on their own. After all, Matt needed to spend his Wednesday tending the four kids, right? Hell even Jake is getting a bit long in the tooth for this. Molly, Jake, Jeremy the College Man and Zach the College Man still need a parent to tend them? Are we supposed to buy this? And if you read between the lines, Zach went shopping aka did the work and Matt watched a movie with Jake until late on a school night.
Thursday - Matt and Camarino did traffic research. Traffic control studies for the big adventure park! If I get the gist of it, they were counting stop lights on their way to the super secret piece of property…. Can’t you just get that info from the county? Well, maybe not if you’re suing the county… But it sounds like a reason to have Camarino drive him around all day.
Friday/Saturday - It is sort of unclear which day he means. He hilariously welcomes Jake into the room. Jake appears to have been sitting in the room the entire time, reflected in the fire screen. In order to continue the masquerade, someone opens and closes the door while pointedly never blocking the light from the door - if he’d been entering the room by the door he would have blocked the light, someone was clearly opening and closing the door to give the appearance of entering but both Jake and the other person were in the room the entire time.
Matt clarifies that it is Saturday and Amy will soon return. Matt is proud to tell us that Jake now has a homework station in Matt’s office as Jake’s room is too filled with toys to have a proper homework station. Matt then laughs about all the stuff in Jake’s room. I note for all the “Matt is a great parent” folks that Matt thinks Jake’s room being so full of toys that he has no place for homework amusing and makes no suggestion that he as a parent perhaps shouldn’t be indulging the lad. In fact Matt laughs about putting a fridge in the room. That’s a concerned parent doing the right thing! He then has a moment of affection with Jake who looks annoyed but pleased.
Apparently his major chore for Saturday was listing Amy’s white van for sale. He notes the Roloffs tend to acquire goods, not sell. Then he holds his cat June for the camera. Ironically, as he does this, I am watching an episode of Lockup where the prisoners have pet cats.
So to sum up, Monday was bill paying, Tuesday was hanging around with lawyers, Wednesday was essentially doing nothing since it isn’t as though the Roloff kids are babies (in theory anyway) Thursday was some piddly project that sounds a lot like goofing off and Matt really never said what happened on Friday or Saturday except that he slept in and sold Amy’s car.
Yeah, he doesn’t sound that busy.
