New Episode: Wedding Prep and Reality Check Guest Review By Anne J. Bailey

Here is the guest review submitted by Anne J Bailey. All opinions and statements belong solely to that of the author Anne Bailey.

======================================


Anne J Bailey here. Before I begin, I would like to thank all my fellow Christians who sent words of support and encouragement.  In the end, I have decided to do as we are all called to do; trust in Jesus. We need more Christian voices in public, in the media, and on the internet. This is what Jeremy  http://twitter.com/jeremyjroloff and Audrey Roloff http://twitter.com/audreymirabella deserve so much credit for doing what they do with their social media. Sure, I would like them to expand on it and bring it to the show and to be more vocal about certain family members mocking of Jesus, but they deserve credit for what they accomplish with their example. They are Christian voices doing what they can to spread the Kingdom of our Father Jesus Christ.  Even something as mundane as discussing a reality television show, we need Christian voices for God reminds me that there are people out there who can be influenced and are waiting to be inspired by God. They can be influenced by sinful behavior (Jacob Roloff), they can also be swayed by Christian voices. The final decision for me to contribute here was decided by God who has told me that He will not steer me wrong.

One final note before I begin, God has blessed me with a voice and opinions. We are called to speak about what is right and what is wrong. If we don't speak and express our hearts, people can be confused and corrupted. I am not perfect. I have flaws. The Roloffs are not perfect. Even Jeremy, Audrey and Matt (the best of the Roloffs) are flawed people. We are all flawed people blessed with a perfect savior. However, I am called to review what I watched and thought with my Christian heart. I believe in saying what you mean. Good can come of it. I will speak from my heart and trust in God.

Let us being.

The show opens with both Matt and Amy discussing their failed marriage. They state they are separated. They hoped it would work out, but it's a stalemate and isn't working. Let me be clear. They are both at fault as in the name of Jesus you must work to make marriage work. That's what God calls of you. Don't take the easy way out. That's what they're doing. The Roloffs are good reminder to God's people not to be distracted by unimportant things like money and fame. Living a life that pleases Him is what is important. The Roloffs have allowed their priorities to be hijacked. 

They both speak of wanting to co-exist for the sake of their kids, namely Zach and Tori's wedding.

Matt, Amy, Zach and Tori film a scene consisting of Zach and Tori explaining their vision for the farm on their wedding day. The most important part of this is Matt's perfect explanation after Amy runs him down and challenges his planning and vision, that he would not go into Amy's kitchen and tell her what to do, but she will go into his area of expertise (planning and projects) and tell him what to do. That was the downfall of their marriage other than losing the focus on God in their relationship. Amy doesn't respect Matt. She doesn't show him respect. She won't allow him dignity. As a wife, Amy failed Jesus by failing Matt in the marriage. These are tough words to write, but they have to be said.

Tori is alright. Certainly better than Jacob's current girlfriend and certainly not as impressive as Audrey. The latter exudes a passion for Christ and charisma. Tori is Ok. Matt means well. He wants to give Tori and Zach a wonderful wedding. He has big ideas. Tori's speech to the camera shows no appreciation for Matt's intentions. She only says that she needs to be careful not to hurt his feelings because he will be her father-inlaw soon. Audrey has not said such a thing.


Amy disrespects Matt for filming in front of Zach and Tori by telling him "Go ahead and do it, that's what you always do". Amy is so unappreciative of Matt. She needs to look herself in the mirror when the day comes where she asks Jesus why she failed in her marriage. Matt's ideas are done out of love for those that he cares about. They might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is wrong of Amy to deem him as selfish and ignore that he wants to make things nice for his family.

Jeremy makes his first appearance in this episode with Matt via Skype. As other reviewers have noted, the authenticity of the scene is in question as Jeremy's appearance is identical to how he is seen later in the episode and the background of his Skype scene appears to be the main house. Nevertheless, it does do an accurate job of showing that Jeremy is the only one who is on Matt's side, the only Roloff who understands Matt means well and wants the best for Matt. Jeremy gives Matt advice about the party so that he won't ignite furor directed back upon himself.

I have purposely saved Jacob Roloff's presence in this episode to last. He is the darkest and most disappointing aspect of the Roloffs.

His appearance in this episode was limited to a few scenes for the camera. Mainly a staged scene consisting of Jacob getting his diploma in the mail. Jacob tells Amy he is moving out. Jacob says he doesn't have a plan. Jacob reveals that most 18 year olds don't have a plan but he really doesn't know what he's doing.  He doesn't have a job other than collecting payment for this filming.  When Matt suggests Jacob get a job, Jacob makes a crack about not being mature enough for that. He drives away in his brand new truck that Matt and Amy have provided for him.

What other Roloffs said about Jacob: Amy tells the viewing audience high school was a struggle for Jacob and that he never liked it. The most honest part of the episode was Amy's exasperated words that Jacob has a lot to learn about life. It is clear that Amy (rightfully) doesn't have respect for the person Jacob has become. Amy also gave a vague and deceptive explanation that Jacob "hangs out with friends a lot" and  is "moving in with friends". Matt, Amy and Jacob participate in a staged and silly scene of Matt giving Jacob meat to eat as he moves out.

How Jacob came off to uninformed viewing audience: If you knew nothing of what Jacob is like when not being filmed, you would have been confused. Jacob suddenly leaving would have felt rushed. You would have wondered what happened? What did you miss?  Jacob came off to the viewing audience as a burned out, stoner, a drug using teenager with a 'too cool to care' attitude.
  
What you really need to know is the truth about Jacob. He is dark soul. He rejects Jesus. He is lost and angry. He aims to destroy good . He is arrogant. He thinks is too cool for everyone. He thinks he is smarter than everyone. He uses drugs. He curses. He has sex before marriage without any regret. He lies. He says things. Then he denies he said them. Then he lies some more.  He's hateful. He expresses no remorse for any of the things he has done. He responds to people reaching out to him with their love with his hate and insults. He is anti-American. He is anti-Christian. He is anti-police and pro-criminals.


Jacob's mere inclusion in this episode highlights not only Jacob's lying words, but his hypocrisy.  He spent considerable time being difficult towards the family for the participation in the show. He whined and complained. He made it clear that he resented it. He attempted to make his parents look bad. He was vocal about bad mouthing the show. He vowed to quit. Even now he went on a twitter spree passively aggressively condemning the filming of little boy "Jack" from another show "Our Little Family". Despite years of being disgruntled, years of acting out, years of vilifying his own family, a year of screaming at people that he will quit the show because of how much hatred he has for it…..there Jacob is, making it his income earner. Relying on it to live after he had done all he could to make it look bad. Even as he condemns 'reality shows', he is choosing $ of principles.

The lack of integrity is typical of people without God in their lives.

I thought about the most responsible way the Roloffs could have dealt with the train wreck that is Jacob. As I said in the beginning, even the best of the Roloffs, are flawed. Only Jesus is perfect.

The Roloffs, if they didn't want to address the disappointment that Jacob has turned into, they could have shut him out of filming. Not allowed him to get his cut of the pie. They could have ignored him.

Or they could have shone a light and asked for prayers for their troubled family member. They could have opened up and showed the way for others who experience family members or sons or daughters who have chosen to shut Jesus out while following the temptations set forth by the Devil.

The Roloffs instead have chosen the weak path of trying to hide it. No explanations are given and white lies are told.

The truth is Jacob was expelled from the fine Christian school right before high school. He then spent a few years in high school. Struggling. Skipping school. Being tardy. Showing a lack of respect for teachers and students. His too cool to care attitude came across when he choose to publicly mock his own school's football team – young men who were giving effort and demonstrating some school spirit. Jacob took to social media to mock them. He would later go on a public twitter rant with his girlfriend calling his athletic high school peers "dumb followers". Jacob and his girlfriend would later delete these tweets. 

While it is tempting for Christians to conclude that Jacob's life really went to Hell because of the lack of God in the public high school, it should be noted there are some fine young men who went the same public high school such as


The above twitter account belongs to a young man who loves God and America. He's not afraid to voice stand for God and say basic God given facts that popular culture tries to destroy such as the simple understanding that "Gender is your God-given sex at birth and shouldn't be changed". Jacob and his girlfriend Isabel has childishly attacked Tyler on twitter always resorting to combating Tyler's logic with childish insults. Tyler is not afraid to confront Jacob on his ignorance. It is something the rest of the Roloffs could learn from. No, it is not easy to take a stand against a family member who you have love for even as they live a sinful life and disrespect you, but sometimes doing the right thing is not the same as doing the easy thing, which is silence.

And that brings me back to the staged show for the episode. Matt and Amy giving Jacob meat as a going away present.

Rather than a silly and staged scene such as that, would it not have served God's people more and helped others in a similar situation to be honest about the direction Jacob's life is headed? For them to speak to the heart and admit Jacob had rejected God and that's why he is lost and has so much to learn about life. I've seen it too many times. People who "Don't believe in a 'man in the sky'" think they are unaccountable so they live selfish and sinful lives because they only care about themselves and live only to please themselves.

I must also note, that Jacob's girlfriend, Isabel (twitter account http://twitter.com/isabelsgarreton ) made her first appearances on the television show. She has officially appeared the television show and I open to be discussed so I don't need to foolishly have mentions of her named edited by Spiritswander as she has now appeared on the show.

The show chose not to introduce her and didn't even clue the television audience in on the fact that she and her brother are the "friends" that Jacob is living with.

That in itself is another disappointment I have with the Roloffs. Matt and Amy chose the easy way. Instead of confronting Jacob about his behavior, instead of THEM kicking Jacob out of the house, instead of them banning Jacob from the show (forcing him work on his own) they just allow him to do what he wants while still allowing him to come and go as he pleases, while still allowing him to live off the show he claims to hate so much, and then they top it off by giving him a truck. His girlfriend was sleeping with Jacob in his room when he was 17 at the Roloff home. Yet they allow his girlfriend to attend Tori's engagement party and go along with it like all is well.

I might discuss Isabel more in a future episode, she is a sad story. Experienced tragedy, yet instead of finding comfort in God and seeking God's love, she surrounds herself with the darkness and drugs that Jacob Roloff brings into her life.

That brings me to the end of my writing for this week. Thank you to all who expressed their love and support. You are welcome to email me bailey.anne83@hotmail.com
You never know what God will have the future hold in terms of my own site which would be 100% Christian controlled and content.

I will end as I will always end my weekly writing; with a Christian quote. This comes from Jeremy Roloff's Christian friend Jarrid Wilson @JarridWilson

"I'm not a Christian because I have everything together, but because I'm a broken person who was saved by a perfect Savior."


God Bless and enjoy your weekend and always let God guide you.

Thank you Anne!

It's always refreshing when someone tells it like it is.

The description of Jacob as "too cool to care" was amazingly accurate.

Brandon said...

The one thing I do have to agree with Anne about is that Jacob is a hypocrite.

Hypocrite was the word that came to my mind too when I read Jacob's tweets about the little kid from the other show.

"Being a little more grown watching jack from Our Little Family be filmed at the same age I was in the beginning is an eerie experience..

I hope he ends up okay after it all

He looks up to Zach but when the producers tell Zach to ask Jack something right in front of him, you can tell he knows it isnt real. Sharp.

And its weird being a part of the 'grown ups' now, who all just expect this kid to know what to say with everyone + 3 cameras staring at him

Like I'm sitting there waiting for him to answer someone, but then feel some sort of guilt for being a part of it.

And thinking of myself in his place is all too familiar, I remember. Thinking of myself as the grown up and as the kid at the same time.."

Jacob wants to imply that he was a victim and he feels sorry for the "new him" but now he is apart of it.

Wanted to feel sorry for himself for his whole life and the minute he had a chance to do something about it he caved for a dollar.

Now he's doing to another kid what he felt was the wrong done to him. That is the pure definition of a hypocrite.

Jacob acts like he takes moral stands on issues on his twitter, but sells his dignity for a dollar on something he has ragged on constantly.

PJ said...

There's no reason for Amy to respect Matt, he's been treating his family like poo for years ( refer to several of the old vacation episodes where "he's too important" to spend time with his wife and kids).
Matt should have NO opinion about the wedding. The only important opinions about a wedding are the bride and grooms. Other than that only economics should be discussed with whomever is paying. Things that don't effect the bottom line should be totally the choice of the couple who's wedding it is. The fact that Matt thinks his ideas are more important shows what an out of control egomaniac he is.
I'm proud of Amy and Matt for deciding to remove themselves from a miserable situation and still try to be civil to each other.
So you know Anne, we all have opinions and a voice to express them not just "christians".
Two final things: I see you're still obsessed with "evil Jake". A mental health professional can help you with that. And Matt's single now, they live in Oregon, go for it Anne.

Denise said...

Thanks Anne for coming through. Truer words could not be spoken about Jacob.

Judy said...

Anne, I knew you wouldn't disappoint.

You are spot on with your comments. Jacob is disrespectful and in turn, doesn't deserve respect.

His brattiness was too much to handle with his I'm so cool, I have no emotion, antics.

I'm also with you that the Roloffs are making a mistake by not speaking out against Jacob.

Megan said...

Couldn't agree with you more, Anne.

Jacob just hates on things. Hates on religion. Hates on people he went to school with. Hates on fans. Hates on God. Hates on America. Hates on white people. Hates on police.

It's really disappointing that they allow Jacob to get paid and be part of something that he's whined about for so long.

He has no morals.

Janet said...

Anne, I think you went easy on Tori by calling her "just alright".

She's a snob and teasing little witch, just like Jacob's crew.

She posted an Instagram picture of her dog with the caption of "Sully found out what happens when you eat something you shouldn't, he went to his vet and still isn't himself.

Caring fans tell her they are praying for her dog and ask what it was that he ate so they might know what to lookout for with their own dogs.

And Tori can't even be bothered to answer any of those kind people. What a nasty little snob she is. They're praying for her dog and she can't even give them the respect to answer the question.

There's a word for Tori that starts with a B. She's so smug. She's that nasty girl from high school who always thought she was the cool girl at school better than everyone.

Rap541 said...

So Anne, you caved? :D

Your thoughts on how Audrey was not a virgin when she entered into the sacred sacrament of marriage?

I ask this because you didn't actually recap the episode at all :)

Also - in your opinion, even though it's Zach and Tori's wedding, should they have been "Yes sir, Matt sir! You're the daddy and even though we're adults, you know best and we should respect how you want our wedding to be what you want?"

And hey, you seem pretty harsh on Amy but how do you feel about Matt openly lying for years about how proud he was that Amy wouldn't clean the house for tv... only to reveal he in fact was very unhappy with it and even as he lied and praised her publically, he felt she was wrong? Anne? What kind of Christian man *doesn't* teach his wife to mind him?

I'm genuinely amused you didn't stand on your principles. Way to cave :D

Lynn C said...

Rap, Anne put the wishes of the readers of this blog ahead of her own financial gain. I assume she did not get paid. She wrote her review for the readers of this blog and did so without profit.

Jacob hated on the show and then did it all for profit.

There is no comparison.

Anne is the only one of the three reviewers who called the Jacob stuff honestly.

Rap541 said...

Lynn yes, she caved. There's totally a comparison to be made. She could have stood up for her values and beliefs and didn't because she'd rather seek attention than stand on principle. Please don't chide me for holding Anne to the standard she set for herself. She bold faced said she wouldn't do an article (I won't call it a review since it isn't) unless her demands were meant. She got told no, and broke.

Barb said...

Thank you Anne. I appreciate your take. It's very true. The Roloffs made a grave mistake by going the easy way and pretending like Jacob is acceptable.

PJ said...

Lynn,
If Jake is in three small scenes why is half of Anne's diatribe about him? She could not have possibly gleaned all she wrote from 1. Jake receiving his diploma. 2. Telling Amy he's moving out. and a third one I cannot even remember. So Anne is psychic?

Paula said...

The Roloffs mistake with Jacob is they've never given him consequences for his behavior.

Vicky said...

Isabel and Jacob now are there for filming. They are so fake. I see Isabel trying to pull a Tori and act like all of them are besties for life.

Rap541 said...

Vicky - explain to me how Jeremy and Audrey aren't there for the filming? Are they publically renouncing their checks?

At last check the marrieds are heading back to Oregon, for *filming*.

Paula - I actually agree with you, that Matt and Amy raised all of their kids with no consequences and it shows in ALL of them. Do Jer and Auj have jobs now that they are moving back to Oregon? Or are they cut rate Kardashians?

Kelly said...

Anne, I like the way you brought the uninformed viewer VS the informed viewer to your review.

Jacob receiving his GED was supposed to make him look good. Really, he couldn't hack it in a real high school. He did "online school". It's a joke. School by means of playing on his computer in his room getting high while staying up until 5am.

Even though they're afraid to "go there" with what is really happening with Jacob, it's obvious that Amy thinks Jacob's attitude is too much and that she is given up.

Anonymous said...

I only read a small part and totally disagree with Anne....I have always felt that Matt totally disregards Amy and that he's a selfish jerk...I really feel bad for Amy.I feel that Matt has always gone behind Amys back in making his own selfish decisions.I like their show and have watch it for yearsnI have been a Christian {saved} for decades.Elizabeth

Kelly said...

Rap541, I'll answer. The big difference is the rest of the Roloffs (maybe with Zach as the exception) didn't whine about filming the show. Jacob has been complaining for the last 3 years. Loudly. In the last year he vowed to quit and not join the cast.

At least Jeremy and Audrey didn't spend years and months whining about hating the show and how they won't take part.

Jacob is a liar. He's a joke.

Diane said...

How are you going to call Isabel fake and say she's pretending to be "best friends" when Audrey and Amy both have posted photos with Isabel?
Looks like she is becoming part of the family whether you like it or not.

Rap541 said...

And Anne vowed to not write unless she was paid and yet here we are, Kelly.

Anne sure did whine...

Anne is a liar and joke, just like Jacob.

Do note when you whine to defend Anne, I am not in any way praising Jake for sucking on TLC's teats just like his elder brother Jeremy that many here insist he emulate. :)

Kathy said...

What does Jacob actually do in life? He smokes pot. He has sex with his girlfriend. He lives off her and her brother? He goes on endless camping and hiking trips. He bashes America and the police on twitter. He's not in school. He doesn't have a job. He's such a loser.

Ashley said...

Diane, I don't know, I'm starting to agree with Vicky about Isabel.

Jacob and Isabel seem to be jumping into "We're all one big great happy family and friends for filming" full throttle! She's even starting to tweet stuff about Jesus.

I'm not on Anne's side about everything, but the criticism of Jacob for being a hypocrite is totally justified. Wanna be a life long reality tv show star? Fine. But don't complain about it for all your life, tell people you're quitting and then go and do it for the money.

About Isabel, suddenly tweeting about Jesus... I'm sorry but it seems like a desperate attempt to fit in with Audrey and Molly, just like Tori.

Irene said...

I'm confused, how are Jeremy and Audrey examples of Christians setting an example? I've read Audrey's blog. I've seen her twitter and instagram.

She is very materialistic. All she does is sell stuff companies when companies entice her. My God, her "friends" she promotes as "On Vanity Fair's best dressed list". I didn't think God cared about being on Best Dressed lists?

It's disappointing that Jacob sold out.

Rap541 said...

In fairness, with the exception that jer wasn't allowed on line because he'd previously been restricted due to his own bad behavior = how is this different from Jeremy at 18-19?

Oh right - Jeremy was still living at home until he was 22 and had to obey mommy in enrolling in minimal college classes. Jeremy was definitely smoking pot and I am totally open to hearing Jeremy put his hand on the bible and swearing to Jesus he was a virgin when he married Auj and until he does so, no I won't believe Jer was a 24 year old virgin...

Everyone who will protest does understand that Jeremy could proudly stand up for Jesus and proclaim publically his views on homosexuality at any time? And does not do so because he'd rather be paid to shush? I am absolutely certain that is equally hypocritical. Which means Jacob is simply following Jer's money hungry example.

Susan said...

If you are now judging Isabel for loving jesus you are part of the problem, Ashley.

Christa said...

Maybe Audrey finally influenced her for the better. Do not be judgmental when it is what you suggested she do, Vicky.

Kathy said...

Rap541, Jeremy went to a college. A community college is better than nothing. He then went to a photography for something he was passionate and dreaming about.

Jacob has no such thing. His passion seems to be marijuana and hating on the police.

Carol B said...

I'm looking forward to Anne's article on Isabel. From what I have read she seems very hypocritical. One of their druggie friends "smadderal" on Twitter shot his girlfriend last night while high based on the tweets. She favorited tweets calling for his freedom from jail only hours later to deplore the same people who do. Go on Twitter and look at her favorites. She constantly does whatever it takes to gain approval in Jacob who is so dark he may never come back. Both of them need our prayers desperately.

Frita said...

There is no winning with you people! I have seen her tweet bible verses and about Jesus before, in the past couple of months. Maybe Audrey really is influencing her in a positive way, the more they hang out. I saw audrey tag Isabel in her recent Instagram photo. We do not know much about Isabel. Maybe she really is seeking out Jesus. Pray for her rather than try to drag her down.

Rap541 said...

Ashley - I will be blunt - I don't think Jacob or Isobel have had a *religious* awakening....

But I would ask - and I ask this of all the Christians - having seen some abrupt conversions - would any of you accept the concept that either Jacob or Isobel had found Jesus?

Its a very serious question to all of you rabid Christians - how would either Jacob or Isobel have to publically prove themselves to have converted.... and why would only Jacob and Isobel be held to such a standard?

WHAT is the standard of proving yourself to be Christian? What does Jacob have to say and do to convince you and is that the same standard held to ANY OTHER proclaimed Christian?

Ashley said...

Susan, yes it's my opinion. I'm judging Isabel because I don't think she's a genuine person.

It seems kinda fishy to me that now that Jacob has decided he's Mr. Reality TV Filming star, present for all staged scenes, and Isabel is now included the filming hanging out with the Roloffs and their friends/girlfriends/spouses ... all of a sudden she is retweeting stuff about Jesus?

Hey maybe she is just a weak minded person about religion and is easily swayed by hanging out with Audrey and has suddenly decided the Bible is the truth, but it seems awfully convenient that now she is camp firing with the Roloff Jesus gang that she's now tweeting about Jesus just like them.

I'm sorry, but my gut screams she is trying to fit in. Just like people were saying about Tori.

Jamie said...

Isabel has explicitly stated that she's wanted to be famous her whole life and that she loves attention even negative attention. She looks up to famous people and fame as the end goal in life and looks down on regular "irrelevant" people. She has stated these things. In the beginning of being with Jacob she even insinuated that she thought she was famous now (ridiculous I know).

This is what she thinks life is about, presenting this facade of a perfect life and relationship to the world via social media. She literally forces Jacob to take photos with her so that she can post on Twitter, then gets mad at him when he won't. This is the extent to which she wants attention. This is her mindset. Fame is everything to her.

Jacob would be a fool to ignore this. But he doesn't mind because well, he used her to get out of Roloff farm. It was his idea to have her get an apartment for them. And when his plan wasn't going well he would get mad at her on Twitter. She provides housing, weed, sex (which she flaunts on Twitter) etc. and he gives her "fame".

Remember, these are things that have been explicitly said by them on social media. A lot of times you won't find them because Isabel deletes them almost immediately. She even complains about Jacob, but deletes them immediately (which goes in line with presenting this perfect life and relationship).

So Diane, I don't see how you can draw any other conclusion than Isabel being largely fake.

And you can be certain she and probably Jacob too reads this blog. As she has stated she loves any attention she can get.

Rap541 said...

Kathy - he never graduated from community college and his mommy had to enroll him.

As for his passion - what is Jeremy doing with himself right now?

He's not a little boy any more... how is Jeremy feeding himself? Aside from being on a reality show about little people? I mean... he's not even little....

Ashley said...

Rap541, I'm not even religious. I'm just posting my opinion here because that's what this blog is about.

I think most of these friends/girlfriends of Roloffs just want to fit in. I find them to be fake.

Over the past 6 months, I'm sure I've seen her say some strong things (that are fine, btw!) that suggest she doesn't believe in God) and take positions on things that definitely contradict that of Christians.

Now she's spent a little bit of time having campfires with the religious Roloffs and she's mimicking on twitter?

Do I think she has genuinely had a religious awakening?? No.

I seriously think she is one of these people who if Audrey and Molly and Jeremy and Tori and Zach said on Monday "skinny jeans are cool", Isabel would say "skinny jeans are cool". If on Tuesday Audrey said "Skinny jeans are for losers", Isabel would say "Skinny jeans suck!".

That's what it seems like to me.

Megan said...

Carol B., I didn't realize the guy who shot his girlfriend was Isabel's friend. But that twitter username sounds familiar. I'm not surprised. Isabel did say all her friends asks her for drugs because everyone knows she knows where to get everything.

You're also right about her doing whatever she thinks will gain approval from Jacob. I think that's why she deletes so many things. Probably after she tweets somethings she wonders if Jacob would approve.

Natalie said...

So Isabel and Audrey are headed towards being BFF's? Just like Audrey and Jacob's ex Stephanie?

Isabel is so fake. Is it impossible for Audrey to be friends with someone who doesn't parrot what she says about God?

But hey, Jacob is doing a good job of being fake by being in this season of LPBW, I guess being fake is a requirement.

Kelly said...

Jamie, very well said. Everything you said is true.

Jamie said...

Ashley,

I found it hilarious too that as soon as the season airs, there's a huge uptick in them posting photos together, talking about each other etc. when they know people are watching. Hilarious right? I thought he despised the show and attention.

But like I said, I think it mainly comes from her. I mean I don't even think he's officially asked her out. He's literally never called her his girlfriend not even once. This all comes from Isabel who loves presenting via social media that they are a couple.

Ashley said...

Jamie, I can't disagree with you. I've seen Isabel say those things.

Ashley said...

Carol B., I have a lot of sympathy for Isabel. It's terrible that she went through so much loss. Her tweets when she's depressed about her mother are incredibly sad.

But it doesn't change whether she is fake or not. I have this suspicion that she desperately wants to be part of the Roloff inner circle and that she is doing cart wheels over the fact that Audrey tagged her. I just don't believe that her belief or non belief changes so drastically in a short amount of time. I think she sees it as the way to fit in.

I have this feeling that if Audrey told her that gay people are bad, she would tweet gay people are bad.

Kelly said...

Jamie, well it's clear they are boyfriend and girlfriend and Jacob makes that clear. They both just happen to be crappy people.

Seeing Jacob dance for the camera after all of his scathing words about how much the show sucked is hilarious.

Jamie said...

Jacob,

Since you're clearly reading this. You're not a hypocrite for pointing out how the show has affected you. You're a hypocrite for constantly complaining about it, saying you're gonna leave the show at 18, then sure enough coming right back to the show this season.

This is hypocritical.

Surely, you'll point this out on Twitter right?

Ryan Slater said...

Score point for Jamie.

For those of you that didn't see Jacob's twitter right now (before he deletes)

When people say I'm playing victim by pointing out how being on TV since I was 6 has affected me majorly...... Child development 101

And how I'm a hypocrite for observing some of myself in a 6 year old in the same situation as me at that age..... Psychological curiosity

He said "I like it medium" when I asked if he enjoyed filming, and thats the exact answer I would've given at 6. 'Medium' meaning not at all

You just don't wanna disappoint the grown ups who know best by saying you don't like it at all


Jacob is usually sharper than that. He's that blind to himself.

Connor said...

Thank you, Jamie.

It's what I've been saying for the last 2 weeks. And that was before his twitter series about Jack.

He clearly thinks it's wrong to film kids at that age for reality shows. He is playing the victim by thinking that, thinking of himself being victimized. He complained his whole life about it. Then yelled from the rooftops when he got on social media about his hatred of it.

The time came where Jacob, hatred of the show, is free to walk away from it. Instead he stays for the money and smiles, recites lines and runs in mud for fake scenes.

Now he is willingly taking part in the filming of a 6 year old who has no choice.

HYPOCRITE!!!!!!! There is no denying it.

Kelly said...

Well said, Jamie, Ryan and Connor.

Jacob is so arrogant he will never see the truth about himself.

Shelby said...

Jamie, you're awesome!

Christine said...

Even the anti Christians are now seeing what loud mouth no character fool Jacob is. All he's proven is that nothing he says is real or means anything.

He will say one thing and do the opposite.

Kind of like the whole thing with him saying he supports gay marriage so it makes it seem like he's this big gay rights supporter but in real life facts, he wouldn't speak to the gay kid because he was freaked out that the kid (when asked) said Jacob was good looking.

Carly said...

The best part of Anne ending jacob's ask.fm account is that Jacob loved controlling what was said about him and the responses. When people said truth to him he just wouldn't publish it. That's why he liked people talking about him over there. Because he was in control.

Brit said...

Jacob's arrogance is so aggravating.

But I'm glad everyone has finally seen Jacob has the hypocrite he's always been.

Gail said...

I'm glad to see people who once defended Jacob realize that he's nothing more than a massive hypocrite.

Carly said...

I love how Jacob retweets a suck up fan agreeing with him saying people don't have a valid opinion if the have not been through it. Of course Jacob agrees.

Uh, excuse me suck up fan? I assume you haven't been filmed so by your own words you don't have a valid opinion...

Anyway that's confusing the issue. Like Jamie and Connor said, he's a hypocrite for complaining, saying he's quitting and then filming anyway, even joining the filming of a 6 year old.

Paula said...

I'm not surprised to learn that Isabel is apparently friends with the Portland man who accidentally shot his girlfriend.

KATHLEEN said...

I think you are all disgusting, awful human beings and I hope you all burn in hell:)

Bill said...

I hope you understand that the Hamills let their two daughters and son play with Jacob, Isabel, Jeremy, Audrey, Tori and Zach and the kids looked to have been having an amazing time.

So while you sit here and talk and talk and talk... They are still living their lives. Interesting.

Delilah said...

You can love and believe in Jesus without believing everything the bible says and everything Christianity encompasses.

Stacey said...

You do know you are condemning Jacob and Isabel for having premarital sex when Audrey admitted to not being a virgin before marriage, and Jeremy also had TWO serious girlfriends before Audrey, all while he drank and smoke, just like Jacob...

Why do you Christians IGNORE THIS? Because Jeremy has suddenly decided to accept and walk with God? Just because he SAYS THAT on social media does not mean it is reality.
You say Jacob is fake. Have you seen the videos of Jeremy and Mueller? They were WORSE than Jacob is now. WORSE.
They told people to KILL THEMSELVES. Jacob has NEVER done such a thing.
Please understand the terrible hyporcisy you bring to the table.
God does not agree with hypocrisy. I can tell you that much.

Newton said...

Rap, I'm confused as to why you didn't completely shut Anne down.

Sammy said...

Anne's article shouldn't have been posted. It was a pathetic attempt at hating on Jacob.

Tammy said...

I still think Rap's review was better.

Jill said...

The fact that Anne thinks Jeremy, Audrey and Matt are the best Roloffs tells me enough about her character to make me fully believe she is a complete and total lunatic.
Her family must be so proud. Or they've all probably disowned her by now. I know I would if I was related to the sadist that is Anne Bailey.

Wesley said...

Spirits I don't know how you sleep with yourself at night knowing you could potentially be contributing to any one of the humans being discusseds said depression, hurting themselves, etc. it must be a lush life knowing you get a free card knowing no one knows you. Does your family know you run a hateful, tormenting blog? Do your friends? I wouldn't be able to be friends with someone who gets off on other people's pain.

Rachel said...

Holy crap, I had no idea Jacobs girlfriend had been through so much. And to keep her head up for so long really amazes me.
If Anne Bailey, while knowing this information, everything this girl has gone through, writes an article bashing her, I will definitely be sending a nasty email to spirits for publishing it, and begging God to condemn Anne to hell for being such a torturous soul.
How can you put a person through so much pain?
So she needs help!!! Reach out to her!!! Pray for her. Pray she finds the Lord... But of course now that she's tweeting about Jesus you want to deem her as fake. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. I can't be the only one outraged by this. I am going to contact her myself and beg her not to let you insane people get to her head. Using her past against her. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Clifford said...

Anne Bailey is a psycho. I hope she rots in hell.

Griffin said...

Anne Bailey just know that come judgement day God will send you downstairs for being such a hypocrital human while here on earth and for spending your time torturing people while here as well.

Camille said...

I'm completely devastated Spirits went ahead and published the socio path's article.
Spirits you are contributing to the mistreatment and terrible bashing of a young boy.
You're as to blame as all of these women if he is to see this and be sad about it.
I hope you feel that in your heart and it stings.
If it doesnt, you're a robot.

Marissa said...

I have this weird feeling that Connor is Tyler Parker.

Lexie said...

I was brought here because I am a friend of Tyler's. And I am appalled! Tyler has never said anything bad about Jacob or Isabel to me in person, he has only disagreed with them on social media (where you can never truly get your points across). Tyler is a man of God and he is very saddened by the words you have dumped upon these two people.
Honestly, so am I. How could people who call themselves Christians behave this way?
I will tell my pastor about this in the morning, and have him pray over this situation.
Jacob is a good person, just lost and confused, which is okay... 18 is a difficult age.

Riley said...

I think Isabel and Jacob are the only couple in the Roloff mix that are going to last.
When I'm right, refer back to this post.
I give Audrey and Jeremy 3 years before a divorce.
I give Zach and Tori maybe 10 because I believe she really loves him.
We all know how Matt and amy turned out because Matt is a egotistical ass.
And Molly will probably never date.

Cynthia said...

You talk all of this nonsense... Yet somehow Amy and Audrey are still hanging out with Jacob and Isabel.
Still no one is speaking up about Jacob. Wanna know why? Because gasp! Family members can disagree. People can disagree.
My great aunt is a democrat and my great uncle is a republican.
They've been married 50 years.
It's possible. The roloffs still love Jacob as estranged and differently as they show it. It's still there. Why? Because they hangout with them. Amy was with them for the 4th of July, not just for filming purposes. Jacob is still her son and Isabel is who her son loves. Amy will never abandon her kids as much as he may have disappointed her. Amy has a big enough heart to know better, to love better.
Audrey has a big enough heart to bear his image, live and love like jesus, talk to Isabel, counsel her through her dark times. She does this because Christ would want her too.

Danielle said...

So disappointed in you, spirits! Anne did nothing but bash Jacob and an innocent girl.

Greyson said...

I am beyond happy to see Audrey and Isabel becoming close. Audrey is exactly what Isabel needs. Guidance. Love. Acceptance. Audrey embodies these things because she loves through Christ and she walks with Jesus. Isabel has obviously taken to see the light that she is, and obviously knows it's in her best interest to reach out, be a friend, try to talk with Audrey. She needs this for her healing process. Audrey is the answer and the pathway to find God again.
I have been praying that Audrey changes Isabel's life.

Sabrina said...



It says a lot about Isabel that she's friends with Mueller's wife, a girl who loves a guy who got his kicks telling girls to kill themselves, ridiculing them (remember when he was caught making fun of the smiling teen girl who met Zach at the zoo) and is mean to animals. These girls are no better than the lousy scumbags they love.

Hopefully Jacob and Isabel don't bring kids into the world like the Muellers.

Candice said...

Anne, I'm glad you mentioned Tyler from Jacob's school. I've followed his twitter sincevi saw the twitter fights betweenhim and Jacob/Isabel. He isn't afraid of them like a lot of kids who suck up to Jacob. He argues real points for God and throws their own words back on them. They just insult him. Like saying he sucks and Jacob saying "I'm done, you're an idiot" after Tyler proved Jacob's ignorance. Tyler loves God and will serve the military while Jacob and Isabel do drugs and film a show they hate.

Timothy said...

Honestly, I think all of the Roloffs and their friends are bullies, snobs and in general, behave like jerk. Most are Christians, but it doesn't matter. It's like a high school clique where you have to be rude to fit in. Not one of the friends or girlfriends that go to the Roloff campfires have ever struck me as nice people.

The Audrey and Jeremy idolization is a joke. They sell, sell, sell. Their social media is about money. Bring people to God? They nwver address hard questions or issues? Does Audrey pray for the girl who Mueller called a loser who should kill herself because she was a freak with no friends when Audrey posts pictures with Mueller captioned with Bible verses?

Greg said...

I don't think Jacob is as smart as everyone thought he was. He can't even comprehend why he is a hypocrite.

Greg said...

"Jacob is a good person" lol. What has he ever done to suggest that he is? He was an asshole to supportive fans and critics alike.

He's a crybaby who now is supported by the very thing (lpbw) he despised, mocked and whined about.

Andrea said...

Anne, your description of Jacob as "too cool to care" was brilliant. I wanted to slap him. He has so much attitude and disrespect. Shame on the Roloffs for allowing it.

Kaitlyn said...

Isabel will be worse than Mueller in terms of being a mean jerk once she speaks on camera and has a title. Like others have said she's a fame junkie and wasn't a nice person to begin with.

Btw, jacob was a jerk to all, doesn't matter if people were nice to him or not.

Lauren said...

Jacob is an adult he even said it himself) who is having people judge him based on his own behavior and things he has said.how can you care about a guy who thinks everyone else is irrelevant? His girlfriend is the same way.

Gail said...

I thought it was sad when Isabel's Aunt tweeted her reminding her to make her mother proud. (This was as Isabel was acting like a jerk) but she just continued getting high with Jacob and trashing people.

Peter said...

I think they are all fake. Why doesn't Audrey do a real blog on Jacob's Christian bashing instead of her paid giveaways/infomercials?

For a little bit it seemed like Jacob would be his own person but he caved and is a slave to the machine he hated.

Ecossais said...

Not another Jacob bashing thread please.
Anne is not doing this for free as her worshippers suggest. She is doing it for her own form of "glory" by seeing her name and crap in print.

Denise said...

Tammy, Raps review ignored all the important issues while Anne addressed it head on. The biggest thing to happen was Jacob moving out. Just because the producers wanted to downplay it doesn't make it less significant.

Wendy said...

If we speak in truth, can I ask? Isabel is living off her mother's inheritance and Jacob is living off the show he trashed and said he would quit when he turned 18. They're moochers. Be rebels if you want but do it yourselves.

Just yesterday Isabel's friend was wanting to swim in a pool. Isabel replied "ask Jacob he has a pool". That's not being an independent adult. Mooching off your parents. But Jacob and Isabel were too busy filming the show Jacob hated and said he was quitting. lol. They have no integrity.

Connor said...

Bill, the Hamills let their kids play with the Roloffs and had an amazing time? It is a farce by the network. A cross over promotion because it's on the same network. Even Jacob admitted it was fake and the 6 year old he's forcing to film so he gets paid knew it wasn't real.

Rap541 said...

Um... Denise? I reviewed *the episode*.

That Anne viewed that hour long show (and frankly I kinda doubt she even watched it) and wrote a page long ragefest says a great deal about *Anne's* issues.

And you know the producers include Matt and Amy, right? Matt and Amy could have insisted you get an hour long education on what Jacob is in their lives... and they went with Matt whining and building a dog house, and Jeremy wearing his wife's hair accessories.

Rap541 said...

As it happens, I actually agree with one of Anne's points. If Matt and Amy (and Jeremy, Audrey, Zach, and Tory) actually had a problem with anything Jacob is doing, they could easily cut Jacob out of the show... and they don't.

Instead they continue to allow him to profit from the show and not a one of them is willing to even mention a concern, let alone do anything. If you genuinely believe Jacob is falling to Satan... why is it that random people on the internet are more concerned about it than his own theoretically proficiently Christian family?

Because the Roloffs would rather have the money.

LC said...

I think Jacob made some valid points in his posts about the little boy, but it is definitely super hypocritical to to talk about the terrible affects that filming has and then continue to film. "This thing ruined my life. This thing is very bad and I hate it. I am continuing to do it because it gives me money, though."

Debbie said...

Rap, Anne said that in her review. As Christians they have lost their priorities. We are all disappointed they don't do any of the things Anne suggested re Jacob.

Rap541 said...

Debbie - so you agree that the Roloffs - including Jeremy and Audrey, are not being good Christians? Or am I to shut my mouth and never ever suggest Jeremy, Audrey and Matt are anything less than Christians to be emulated?

Remember, if I emulate Jeremy, Auj, and Matt, I should have nothing but praise for Jacob...

AC said...

Anne, please check your email. Before you write an article about Isabel you should read the stuff I sent. I was talking with one of Isabel's ex friends who finally got sick of how she acts and she told me a lot of VERY INTERESTING things about Isabel and Jacob. They are even worse humans than most people think. She shouldn't be trusted at all. Please read it in preparation for your article.

Ashley said...

"I think Jacob made some valid points in his posts about the little boy, but it is definitely super hypocritical to to talk about the terrible affects that filming has and then continue to film.

I totally agree with you, LC.

Pam said...

The Roloffs are definitely not handling Jacob the right way. Anne is right. They should have either blocked his involvement or pulled the curtain back and told people the truth about him.

Olivia said...

Anne, thank you for what you said about the Roloffs mistake in welcoming Jacob's girlfriend in. They both should be banned until they get their acts together and make an effort to be decent and responsible human beings.

They are not good people, either of them. He is a hateful complainer who thinks it's cool to criticize everyone and everything but himself. She is a drama queen.

Rita said...

I just gotta say, what people are saying about Jacob and Isabel being jerks are true.

I'm blocked by both of them on twitter, lol.

Isabel blocked me after I complimented her picture of her dog with a cat she had.

Jacob blocked me back in the day because I "followed" him on twitter because I was a fan that said I liked him and the show. Of course that was before I realized what a huge jerk and snob he is.

They both think they're better than everybody. They deserve every bit of criticism they get for being liars and phonies.

Katie said...

Rita, remember, both Jacob and Isabel are bullies. They have a bad history of bullying and tormenting people.

Jacob harassed and encouraged other kids to bully a kid so much that he needed to transfer schools. That is true and think about that for anyone who still thinks Jacob is a good person. Jacob had so much hate in him that he bullied a kid so bad that the kid needed to leave schools because of Jacob. That is an evil kid.

Then you saw what Jacob did to another vulnerable kid in high school, the gay kid. He went on about how he doesn't want the gay kid near him and wouldn't even talk to him for the entire school year.

Isabel has been called out by people who went to school with her as a bully. Don't forget one of the ways Jacob and Isabel first bonded was when he was cheating with her and smoking pot while he just had sex with his then girlfriend Vanessa.

They are both nasty people.

Ecossais said...

So Olivia -

"the Roloffs' mistake" "they are not good people" "hateful complainer" "drama queen"

but YOU are not criticizing anyone????????????????

Anonymous said...

Did any of this happen in the episode? Is it a review of the episode or just a complaint about the youngest Roloff's behavior off camera? If it is the latter, why not rename it "Anne Bailey's Opinion Of Jacob Roloff" instead of pretending she's reviewing the show?

Cameron said...

I have no idea why Anne would post an article about isabel when she has appeared on the show ONCE and the only thing we know about her is that she is Jacob's girlfriend? I'm super confused as to why anyone would want to read complete bashing on a young teenage girl. Why don't you all find something better to do with your time...

kitten Has claws said...

For Crap Sake...the Anne B review was downright boring IMO. Geared to the religious, but i kinda think even God would fall asleep on this one. I have been watching LPBW from the beginning and its never been "religious"...maybe seen a couple times where the family prayed together. When Jeremy was Jacobs age he was drinking and smoking funny things...tossing cats in the air etc. I do think if Amy had of been more active in Jacobs life..like she was in her other 3 childrens lives ...just maybe he would of been alittle bit different ...hell Amy has talked for years on being an "empty nester"...how is a kid suppose to take that? I think Amy and Matt failed Jacob.

Denise said...

Jacob moved out on the episode, but no explanation was given. They also said Jacob moved in with friends, but didn't say it was so he could sleep with his girlfriend.

It was in the episode and Anne filled readers in on the truth of what really happened and what Jacob is really like.

Michelle Z. said...

I find it really interesting that you can all make up lies about Isabel and Jacob while they are happily living together.... Yikes.
I'm one of their closest friends and I can see that they handle the negativity and hate really well, they are both amazingly caring individuals and they are very happy.
Glad to see you bitter hags are still on here being bitter.
Why so jealous of Isabel? Because she's with the hottest Roloff?

Erica said...

Michelle, maybe because they aren't lies? Most people informed here saw firsthand how rude and arrogant Jacob and Isabel are. Maybe you got high with them and that's why you can't admit the reality that they are bad people.

Nancy said...

Rita, they do it for a power trip because they think they're better than everyone.

Anna said...

So many old people have this weird obsession with Jacob.
I do agree he's smoking hot, but taking jabs at his girlfriend because she's with him?
Childish jealousy at its finest.

Darla said...

Jacob is so cute it hurts me

Kayla said...

Has Jacob ever done anything nice for someone that didn't benefit himself?

Gina said...

What will Jacob and Isabel do when the money runs out? Drugs are expensive and the show money has lots of people getting a slice of the pizza. They have no manners.

Rap541 said...

Jacob moved out on the episode, but no explanation was given. They also said Jacob moved in with friends, but didn't say it was so he could sleep with his girlfriend.

Was it?

I mean, Matt and Amy pretty openly condone the sex in the house and the drugs when Jacob *wasn't* eighteen....

PJ said...

I came across this on Facebook by a lovely lady named Sharon. "When you constantly feel the need to point out and make fun of other people's flaws, it is because you are afraid to look at your own. THIS ONE'S FOR YOU ANNE .

Jim said...

Jacob is such a hypocrite. He's like prostitute. Anything for money. You could get Jacob to do whatever you want if you gave him money. Where is the honor in that? He's a poor excuse for a man.

Bonnie said...

During the GED moving out kitchen scene it was sad seeing the cross on the wall behind Jacob knowing how anti God Jacob is and what a sinful life he lives.

Aileen said...

I have faith that the universe will see to it that Jacob will get what he has coming to him. Karma is great thing.

Jim said...

I would love to ask Ron Roloff for his true opinion of Jacob.

Rap Moffett said...

Jim - how does that make Jacob any different from any of the Roloffs? Even Jeremy Jesus and St. Auj are said to downplay their faith on screen because they are given money to do so. Why is it ok for Jeremy to take money and shush up on how he loves God?

Explain to me how that's noble and better than Jake being a reality whore WITH Jeremy and Auj? I don't see the difference, they are all prostituting themselves and there's nothing honorable in it for any of them.

Alicia said...

Jacob needs a big dose of humility. His big mouth already made him look like the liar and fool.

Jim said...

Easy answer Rap. Jeremy never complained about the show. Jeremy didn't go around saying he was quitting the show.

Jacob is the hypocrite.

Mary Robertson said...

Jacob and Isabe.'s relationship is based on doing drugs and sex. That's not a healthy relationship. They should consult with John Mark Comer.

Rap541 said...

Actually Jeremy has complained that he now has to watch what he says....

But really, you genuinely think he should be proud of himself for accepting money to downplay his religious beliefs?

Rap541 said...

And you don't think it's hypocritical to portray yourself one way on tv but differently in private?

I mean, I actually agree with you - Jacob is hypocritical, I just don't see him as any different from Jeremy who thought his fans could suck his cock until he was earning his pay check directly. Funny how Jeremy learned to smile and say "Yessir! Thanks for loving my family!" when he started getting a check for it.

Jan said...

Isabel is so fake. She's easy to see through. Is Audrey falling for it?

Cynthia said...

How can Jacob deny that he's a hypocrite? He definitely is a huge hypocrite.

maj1907 said...

I think Anne is a nut!! You are the same type of person that "burned witches" at the stake in Salem in the name of god...

Louie said...

How many times does it need to be stated, though, Cynthia?
So he's a hypocrite.
Okay. Post about it again 16 times. Doesn't change the fact. Doesn't change anything.
Pray about it.

Connor said...

Louie, it should be said many times. It's who he is. If you don't like it, then don't read a Roloff discussion blog. Jacob Roloff has proven himself to be a lying hypocrite, an arrogant and rude jerk who is a police bashing, American bashing brat.

Jacob Roloff, he will complain and bash something, then reach his hand out to be part of it.

Ecossais said...

@anonymous
You are absolutely on point.

This was NOT a review. It was just an excuse for a totally biased anti Jacob pro jesus tirade as is 90% 0f this thread.

Ecossais said...

@Rap

You raise a good point about pay checks.

Did Jacob get a small pay check or nothing before he was 18? Maybe he disliked being on the show if he was being forced to do it by Matt and Amy for no return.
This is not necessarily being a hypocrite - just being practical.

Rap541 said...

Connor, again, so Jacob Roloff is like the rest of his family. They're all hypocrits and trust me, Connor, none of them think well of their fans.

Connor said...

Rap, you're a master of deflection. You always try to deflect the focus of the discussion off of Jacob and onto Jeremy.

It's not about fans. Jacob's a hypocrite because he whined for years about the show. He feels he was victimized by being filmed at a young age when he didn't like it. Then he took to loudly bashing and scoffing at the "stupid show". And then came the vows to quit, along with his arrogant "you'll see, trust me, I'm quitting!"

No matter how many times you try to steer the conversation back to Jeremy, the fact remains there is no comparison.

Jeremy was not vocal about hating filming the show. He did not whine about it. And he did not go around saying he was quitting.

Jacob did all the above. He even tweets about how it's wrong to film young kids, but there he is, bobbing up and down for the cameras because he wants money.



Leigh said...

Connor, Jamie, you're both one hundred percent right about Jacob.

It's simple. Earn money how you want. Want to be life long reality show star? Go ahead. But the other ones didn't bash the show and whine about how bad it is and make empty threats about quitting. Jacob thinks it's bad and then continues with it for the money.

The guy has no principles whatsoever.

Rap541 said...

No Connor, its about hypocrisy, right? They're all hypocrits but you want to set Jacob up as the worst simply for following the behavior he sees from his entire family.

Jeremy shit on fans until he got his own check and then he was quick to change his tune about how you could suck his dick if you liked the show... Connor, don't you think its a bit hypocritical that Jeremy felt you were a creeper who was also a cocksucker when he wasn't getting a check, and now he loves you, now that he is getting paid? That is exactly the behavior you find obnoxious in Jacob but hmmm, you feel it's deflecting... why is that, Connor?

I mean, other than how acknowledging it removes Jeremy from his pedestal. Note - I am actually agreeing with you that Jacob is hypocritical and you're upset that I am agreeing with you because I note that Jacob is following Jeremy's example... WHat's the problem?

Connor said...

Rap, I'm ending your attempt to deflect this off of Jacob.

Jacob is a hypocrite because he whined about the show, thinks it's baaaaaaddddd, said he would quit and then signed right back up for the $$$.

None of the other Roloffs did that. Maybe Zach, but not to the same extent of Jacob, they at least had the good sense to keep their mouths shut.

Wendy said...

Was anyone else annoyed at the obnoxious dogs in the episode? They were always whipping around, running around and under the table. They weren't well behaved.

Andrea said...

What do Jacob and Isabel actually do every day? They can't film that much. Do they just get high all day long?

Maggie said...

Jacob deserves to be brught down a peg or two.

Is it true he has anxiety issues? Hopefully he hyperventilates or something.

Laura said...

Andrea, Isabel has a job. I don't know about Jacob.

Francisco said...

Hopefully he hyperventilates or something?
My word.
Wishing bad upon someone. So very Christian of you.

Andrea said...

Isabel is a part time dog sitter. How is she supporting herself?

Maggie said...

Yes I do Francisco. I think about the people Jacob has hurt, whose careless words have destroyed them. So yeah I hope Jacob has really bad anxiety. That affects his quality of life until he says he's sorry and tries to be a good person like God wanted him to be.

Lemelia Bonner said...

"These are tough words to write, but they have to be said." Actually, no, they don't have to be said. Let's get really clear on that. Nothing HAS to be said. You CHOOSE to say it because you are grounded in the flesh, insecure, and it makes you feel better to find fault in others. It is about nothing more than ego. Here's the thing: If God IS God, then God is certainly all powerful. And if God is all powerful, God certainly doesn't need your help in the judgment business.

Laura said...

Andrea, wrong. She works full time at a doggy daycare. I'm assuming that is how she is supporting herself.

Eric said...

Why doesn't this Tyler dude beat Jacob up? Why did all those football players at Liberty put up with Jacob's crap? Were they that star struck? Jacob deserved to have his ass knocked out for what he did to Stephanie.

Rap541 said...

Connor, you're not ending my comments because a) you aren't a mod and b) you're not the boss of me.

I already told you - we're agreeing that Jacob is hypocritical... but you don't like the rest, that he's following his brother Jeremy's example. Because you don't want to acknowledge that none of them deserve praise for standing on principles because none of them, including Jacob and including Jeremy, ever stand on principle when there's dollars to be made. WHat I don't understand about you is why you're so enraged at the idea that neither Roloff lad has anything to proud about with this behavior.

Janet said...

Laura she only recently got the job. It can't pay that well. She road trips all the time and rook a long trip to California last year. Earlier she webt on a trip without Jacob. If she's full time she gets a lot of time off.

I assume she lives off the life insurance.

running dog said...

Andrea asked "What do Jacob and Isabel actually do every day? They can't film that much. Do they just get high all day long?" . .. i too have pondered on this at great length Andrea . . . I often wonder what comic books Jacob & Isabel read . . . What r their favorite cartoons to watch on tv . . . After reading Ann's "thing" i do not think that Jacob & Isabel regularly attend Sunday church services or fear the lord god o'mighty . .

Laura said...

Well her mother did die when she was 17. If she is living off of life insurance it is because she needs extra support since her mother did die when she was 17.

Tina said...

Jacob is so full of hate. That's why he bashes everything good and right. If he was bigger he would be physically abusive. He seems very controlling of his girlfriends. Stephanie seemed scared of him.

Nate said...

Isabel seems perfectly happy.

Paula said...

Why does Isabel insist on drawing attention to her breasts?? If she appears on lpbw like she does in her twitter pics they would need to blur her out. She's very insecure I think.

Connor said...

Nate, no she doesn't, lol. Truthfully she seems like a nutcase. And very high maintenance. Jacob must think her boobs are worth all the drama.

Kaitlyn said...

Connor, I disagree. I think Jacob is controlling. He's not a nice boyfriend.

Nate said...

Okay Connor lol. Keep telling yourself that.

Gail said...

I still remember the x rated pictures she posted late one night of her and Jacob. They have no morals. Filth destroys the fabric of a Godly society.

Kris said...

I find it hilarious someone commented "natural beauty" on Audrey's most recent picture when she's caked on the black eye makeup and red lipstick...

Alyssa said...

Creepy people specifically pointing out a certain mole on a celebrity's body.
Same.
Same.

Right, Kris!?
Tori is naturally beautiful.
Audrey has to use makeup to be remotely attractive.

Kj said...

Alyssa, it is very noticeable.

Alyssa said...

Yeah but you're fucking annoying.

Hugo said...

you know all the Jacob haters together make more evil combined than Jacob could ever come up with himself.

Lily said...

Finally someone said it! I totally agree. Audrey used to be average looking when she didn't wear so much eye makeup. Now she piles it on. You can see such a difference if you go down to her old pictures.
Tori has never worn much makeup, so I'm excited to see how she looks during the wedding!

Connor said...

It's perfectly normal to wish bad things happen to bad people, especially when he's as arrogant as Jacob

PJ said...

Xonnor it might be "perfectly normal" to you but hardly Christian..

MS said...

Paula: "Why does Isabel insist on drawing attention to her breasts?? If she appears on lpbw like she does in her twitter pics they would need to blur her out. She's very insecure I think."

She does it to annoy you, Paula. After all, it does seem to bother you a lot. And Audrey frolics around in bikinis and low-cut tops to please Jesus. All clear now?

MS said...

Andrea: "What do Jacob and Isabel actually do every day? They can't film that much. Do they just get high all day long?"

Sit around with all the other unemployed Roloffs? What do the rest of them do? Jeremy/Audrey failed in LA and went back to mommy/daddy's farm to collect TLC money. Oh sorry, I forgot, God told Audrey her calling was to peddle products online in-between filming reality TV. I guess that's sort of a job. While she's busy, perhaps Jeremy gets high with Jacob just like old times?

Abby said...

What is the real reason Jacob moved out so fast? If he is so happy and the other Roloffs are so cool with him, why the rush to get the heck out of dodge?

Rap541 said...

"After all, it does seem to bother you a lot. And Audrey frolics around in bikinis and low-cut tops to please Jesus. All clear now?"

I seem to recall some scenes in the recent "remembrance of the twins" episode where Audrey was quite obviously wearing a bikini on the beach with not one adomishment from a Christian. Funny that.

"Jeremy/Audrey failed in LA and went back to mommy/daddy's farm to collect TLC money. Oh sorry, I forgot, God told Audrey her calling was to peddle products online in-between filming reality TV. I guess that's sort of a job. While she's busy, perhaps Jeremy gets high with Jacob just like old times?"

You know, its kinda funny that no one wants to address why the successful kiddies are moving back to Oregon. I mean, wasn't I told by Christians here that Jeremy was building a successful business in Los Angeles? Wasn't I told by Christians here that Audrey was working at a *prestigious* job?

And they have4 left the successful business and job to well... sit on the hay bale and be Daddy matt's perfect kids... I remember predicting Jeremy was going to end up on the farm because he couldn't manage elsewhere and I am genuinely curious if I am right





Suzy B said...

Wow. I thought Christians prayed for lost souls, instead of bashing them mercilessly in an open forum.

Thom said...

Anne are you completely insane? This "review" is utter and complete trash and a total joke. You should be ashamed of yourself. This is nothing but hateful and nasty. You and your minions in the comments make me sick.

Dr. J said...

Abby, Jacob left for a multitude of reasons.

For starters, Jacob is selfish. He does what he wants and thinks of nothing else but his needs.

In his mind, moving out meant more drugs and more sex and more freedom. No having to listen to anyone complain about him..

Secondly, by being the one to initiate it, he felt like he was punishing his parents. It was a silent "There, take that! I couldn't wait to move out because I hate you"

Jacob moving out is the equivalent of a petulant 15 year old. They want to live with their friends so they can have sex, do drugs, sleep in and play game without anyone getting on their case.

The Roloffs mistake was letting him to continue to leech off the family farm and the family business.

A parent needs to set boundaries with would be rebels like Jacob Roloff. Go ahead and do it, but do it on your own without help from the family.

Instead the Roloffs left the door open, gave him money, support, a truck and let him come to the show he said he hated.

The short answer to your question is the reason that Jacob Roloff moved out so fast was because he is an immature child who thinks he knows it all.

Leanne said...

Is Jacob's girlfriend trying to be funny by having the phrase "Live with grace" on her twitter header.

She lives with a hateful jerk and does drugs with him. Nothing about her emotes living with grace.

Amelia said...

The fact that they are moving back from LA is so sad.. Hasn't even been a year. Can't hang? Don't make impulse decisions.
Jeremy obviously isn't as successful as he thought he would be.
He thought people would want him to take his photo just because he is Jeremy Roloff. When in all reality, Jacob Roloff looks like a better photographer with an iPhone 6 camera. lol

Thom said...

I really can't get over how all of you think Jacob is awful for moving out when he did what most people's parents expect of them - move out when they legally become adults! Jeremy and Zach lived at home until they were in their early 20s despite having the financial means to leave because they wanted to preserve their teenage lifestyle (hanging out on the farm with friends, living for free, etc.) and boyhood despite being legal adults.

On that note, I don't understand why the show rarely addresses the fact that Zach owns a home? That is an accomplishment he should be proud of, even though I'm sure a big chunk of that was TLC money. It shows more responsibility than we have ever seen from Jeremy.

Denise said...

Why do people think Jeremy and Audrey have moved back to Oregon for good? Has Jeremy or Audrey said that.

I recall seeing Jeremy or Audrey tweet to a friend in California that they are back in Oregon for filming but would be back to Cali later.

Some people are just eager to deem Jeremy a failure. His website seems to be doing great and generated a fantastic reaction. He was named photographer of the year by photography blog. Companies are using Jeremy like Barnabas Clothing.

Denise said...

Amelia, do you know the stats on Jeremy's website and his photography print sales? If you don't, I suggest you shut your mouth. Thank you.

And there's not one thing Jacob can do better than Jeremy.

Connor said...

Thom, let's be real.

Jacob moved out so he get high whenever he wants without ever needing to be secretive and so he can bang his girlfriend.

He moved out based on the money he got from the show he hated and vowed to quit...only to go back to it with his tail between his legs because Jacob Roloff is bought and sold like slave.

You could offer me $1000 to say the crap Jacob retweets bashing the brave men and women who serve the country as police officers and I would tell you to F off, but you could get Jacob tweet his support for them if you paid him $1000.

The guy is a fucking joke.

Fred said...

It's okay, you'll be okay Denise. Just watch Jacob become more successful than his brother Jeremy.

Judy said...

Right on Denise.

That's funny, Fred. Jacob does nothing with his life except bash good people and do drugs. That's no way to be successful.

Jeremy lives for Jesus. Jacob lives for himself. Jeremy has talent and a dream and a vision and direction from God. Jeremy has a degree in the field he loves. Jeremy has respect. Jeremy has a beautiful wife who loves Jesus.

Jacob is a druggie who does drugs with his girlfriend.

Debbie said...

Spiritswander, why haven't you done a separate article about Audrey's birthday?

There was one about Jacob.

Jacob gets a birthday thread but not Audrey?

Happy 24th birthday Audrey. The world needs more people like Audrey and less like Jacob.

Rap541 said...

Denise, do *you* know the stats for Jeremy's website and photography print sales? If you don't... please continue yapping about it because it makes you look even dumber.

I actually withhold judgment on his website in that I think it's far too soon to declare it a success or a failure, but it isn't a great sign that he hasn't updated in almost thirty days.

If he's genuinely trying to build a wedding photography business, moving from his base and partner Tye in California to spend what, five months in Oregon during the height of the wedding season seems a bad plan. I looked at the Like A Letter website - they have a calendar where you can check if your date is available and it looks like they only had three weddings scheduled in the last ten months. Four if we include what I assume is Zach's.

I'm also going to question Audrey's job letting her take a leave of absence to film. I suspect we won't hear boo from the kiddies on how Jeremy is giving up his immensely successful business and Audrey her prestigious job.... just to film for a month or two and then move back...

Lauren said...

Isabel just tweeted "Please take your anger out on me yea!!"

"Why do we take out our anger on the people we love?"

Hopefully she means Jacob and can escape his darkness before it's too late for her.

Zelda said...

Because she's not an ACTUAL Roloff. She's married into the family. Get real, Debbie.

Shelby said...

Like Eric always says, look at how Jacob treated Stephanie. She was left in shambles because of how bad he was to her and how he made her feel. Then he kicked her to the curb for the next girl (Isabel) and tries to pretend like she doesn't exist. There are no words for how hateful Jacob is as a human being.

Janet said...

Is Jacob being abusive and angry towards Isable now?

Terry said...

Is Jacob even sober when he tweets all this stuff? The stuff about how psychedelic drugs should be legal because they supposedly get people to "open up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong?"

What a drugged up loon!

Anonymous said...



Did anyone call the police? About the abuse? Both were under eighteen. Did Stephanie's parents get involved? Did Matt or Amy do or say anything? Has anyone told Audrey or Jeremy or Zach or Tori or Molly about the abuse of Stephanie that took place when Jacob was a minor?

I've seen it said that Audrey "saved" Stephanie.... from what? How can Audrey call herself a Christian if she knows Stephanie was abused by her brother in law and does nothing and says nothing?

Angela said...

Debbie, raises a great point. It's just one more example of the anti Christian slant Spiritswander has. Doesn't even want to have people wish Audrey a happy birthday. Put Anne in charge already.

Rap541 said...

Angela - why hasn't Jesus answered your prayers? Ask Anne that. Aren't you all praying to have Spirit give up the blog? Come on, you think Jesus is with you... why won't Jesus answer your prayers?

Oh look, we're all whining again about Jacob's online comments even tho "Anne and Jesus won".... funny how the power of Jesus and Anne *silenced* Jacob but he's still commenting on line to where you all need to lick each other in horror over it.

MS said...

Honestly Angela, you sound dumber every time you post. So Spirits is anti-Christian yet allowed Anne to post a lengthy pro-Christian article guised as a review that was really nothing more than judgmental, agenda-laced rhetoric? Feel free to create your own blog and put Anne in charge.

Mmk said...

All I have to say is Jacob is every bit as bad as people say he is. My sister's boyfriend went to Faith Bible with Jacob. He loves Jesus and has a deep relationship with God. He says Jacob was always troubled. I might excuse Jacob for being you then but we found out he is still putting my sister's bf down after all these years. Jacob hates on people who love Jesus. It's true.

Megan said...

Anon, mental and emotional abuse doesn't usually lead to police. Jacob made her feel inferior. He made her feel like she wasn't good enough for him. Worst of all he made her feel ugly and like he would dump her if he sawher without make up. That's a cold hearted sociapath

MS said...

Shelby, I'm curious, do you know Jacob? You clearly hate him. Every post of yours is pretty much the same content. You've even gone on record wishing harm upon him. I'm amazed at how much he upsets you unless there's some history between you two.

NJC said...

Debbie and Angela before you go too far off the deep end with your looney conspiracy theories how about you go to the local Hallmark store and check the "Milestone Birthday Section" and see how many "Happy 24th Birthday" cards you find?

You do understand that 18 is a bigger deal birthday than 24 right? You do realize that Jacob turning 18 and therefor officially an adult has been a topic of interest on here for quite some time? Jacob hitting a Milestone Birthday that people had been anticipating gave Spirit's something that she could fill a post with. Audrey's 24th? not so much.

PJ said...

Terry,
That's exactly what LSD was used for by psychiatrists in the 1950's and 60's until it was made illegal.
And for all of you talking about Ste Auj's birthday I don't remember much about the twins birthday either. Jake's was special because all you loons were predicting dire consequences and nothing happened..
For all of you still agitating for Spirits to give Anne the blog, read the post again where it's made clear that Anne isn't getting control of anything here, Thank God.

Rebekah said...

Aright, so hi. I'm a huge fan of Audrey's. I think she's so inspiring. I've read all of her blog posts and I look up to her for being so in love with the Lord. Her relationship and her life seem almost too good to be true. The thing about it is, she's been raised in a Christian home and had good, loving Christian parents and for that I am eternally jealous of. It seems as though her parents have been teaching her about the grace and the love of God since she was young. Through this they have managed to raise three beautiful children, all the while staying happily married through the love of Christ. She happened to meet a perfect farmer boy somewhere in the mix, after being a successful track athlete at a great college, all the while remaining heavily involved in her church and having tons of great friends.

Audrey's life has been a very picture esque, white picket fence, all American girl life. Audrey has been taught about God's love since she was young. Audrey has had two parents in her life, and 2 supportive siblings. Audrey grew up into a beautiful, exuberant woman because of this, thus scoring herself a handsome man. Audrey is now 24, living her life, and enjoying it. She seems incredibly happy because let's face it: God blessed her.

Now let me talk about Isabel for a second. her parents were divorced when she was 9 or 10. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 7th grade, and that is when she began attending church. During her freshman year, Isabel went to Haiti on a missions trip to do God's work and was heavily involved in children's ministries in her church. Her mom battled cancer all throughout Isabel's high school career, and her junior year her brother passed, and heartbreakingly then her mother passed her senior year. She then began hanging out with Jacob, and now at 19 works at a doggy daycare due to her love and passion for animals and lives with her remaining brother. Her relationship with her father seems estranged from what I know. She still seems to be a happy, strong girl working towards her dreams the best that she can.

May I ask WHY the necessary comparison? This girl and Audrey have had COMPLETE different things happen to them, complete different lives. It seems to me that the comparison is like comparing an apple to a banana. They're both delicious fruit but they have their complete and utter differences. Some people prefer apples some bananas. Why must Isabel be forced to compare herself to Audrey who has had a pretty amazing, fulfilling but easy life? Isabel is only 19!!! She has 5 whole years to figure it out like Audrey has, with altogether different circumstances. Let her. Leave her alone. Leave her be. I have faith and I am praying SHE WILL figure it out and maybe God set her up with Jacob so Audrey could change yet another girl's life. Think about it. Hating on Isabel will do nothing.

Eddie said...

MS, my bet is that his creepy first girlfriend comes here and wastes her life away ragging on him. She should really get a life. I'm starting to wonder if Shelby isn't Vanessa or Stephanie, lol.

Logan said...

MS, I see what you're saying and I've been thinking it The whole time. These ex girlfriends are still bitter they couldn't stay with Jacob so they've spent all this time bashing on him on some website. Pathetic.

Rap541 said...

Rebekah - unfortunately some of the fans of Jeremy and Audrey have gotten it into their heads that Jeremy and Audrey will somehow like them more if they tear down any competition to the "blessed" pair. That's why Tory is routinely dismissed with "I have a bad feeling about her" - Tory seems like a nice girl but no one can be considered "better" than Audrey.

This is why Jacob is routinely hated on by professed Christians. The reality is that at eighteen, he's actually a little ahead of Jeremy in accomplishments in that he's moved out of the family home (Jeremy was 22 when he finally went to college) and even though that's a fairly minimal accomplishment indeed, it clearly enrages some of them.

Point - Audrey wears a bikini, it's Christian. Isobel does the same and she's a slut. Tory accepts a trip, Tory is a gold digging whore. Audrey accepts a trip and that's just Jesus blessing her.

Let me be honest - there's no rationality to it. For all their complaining, the Christian crowd never ever holds Jeremy or Audrey accountable for any behavior. They've excused things for the "blessed" pair that if it was Jacob, they'd be calling for his head (please check out the simulated penis pics which I am assured since it was Jer and Auj, its Christian and they would be proud to have John Mark Comer display the photos at Solid Rock as an example of "Two Christians celebrating a birthday with Jesus in their hearts").

Ecossais said...

Why all this fuss about Jacob treating his ex girlfriend badly?
The people commenting don't really know the characters involved and that is not what this blog is supposed to be about.

Most teens are emotional and fall in and out of love several times with lots of tears and "wanting to die" before they find the right one. That is part of growing up.

MS said...

Good post, Rebekah. While I admittedly don't share all of the same beliefs/opinions as you, that's fine. It's refreshing to see a well-thought out post like yours compared to the narrow-minded nonsense that Anne's cult posts. For them, everyone is deemed as competition to Audrey/Jeremy for some warped reason. People like you represent the Christian folks well on this blog.


Dayna said...

Wow Rebekah you make a very intriguing point. I had never thought about it like that. People are only a product of their surroundings/life circumstances and experiences.
