New Episode of Little People, Big World August 18, 2015 - Episode Review By Rap541

A new episode of Little People, Big World featuring the Roloff family airs tonight Tuesday August 18th, 2015 at 9:00 PM on TLC.

Review Written By Rap 541

Matt in previously scenes notes how Zach’s wedding is all about his need to do some project.
So this will be about a windmill. Because why not? There’s a montage of farm scenes and then Matt calls from the magical office and demands Amy attend a state of the union meeting. They talk about the gazebo. Amy nots that NOW that she’s an empty nester, she loves having the kids return. Matt is all “No one seems to like the salsa”. There’s no orders and they may need to market it locally.
Tory is making mason jar personalized glasses. I really find arts and crafts dull so this is boring. On the plus side I like the idea of *receiving* a personalized mug at a wedding.
Molly and Amy are doing a baking class for no real reason but the cameras. There’s much commentary on Amy’s cake failure. They are going to make a mayonnaise cake. For someone who has actually written a cook book, Amy seems pretty clueless about cooking. The whole thing is fun except that its all clearly forced for the cameras. Molly at least has gotten better in front of the cameras. The cake made is for the rehearsal dinner.
Now Matt and Jeremy (up from Los Angeles) are doing stuff. Matt feels various areas of the farm are boring. They decide it’s time to build a giant windmill and of course Matt loves everything Jeremy suggests, and it will also be a walk around bar. Amusingly they pretend there might be other weddings on the farm for non Roloffs.
Tory and Zach struggle to seat people. First world problems, kids. There’s weirdness about separating the parents at tables. Matt is all “I need Jeremy to approve the windmill” and Jeremy of course tongue bathes Matt and Matt makes sure to note how Jer is his kid.
Now Matt and Amy go to the grocery stores locally and pitch their salsa. If the salsa business doesn’t work, yup, they could lose the farm. The store chain is small but they vaguely resemble a Wegmans so maybe they are good. (Wegmans lovers sound off). They pitch their salsa as gluten free and vitamin filled.
So after a commercial break, Darren at “Roth’s” wants to do a taste test. Matt is surprisingly negative about the whole thing.
Next up Zach and Tory turn up in the barn to see the giant windmill project. Zach expresses some concern that it won’t be finished in time, as is Tory. Zach and Tory have reservations but accept that their wedding is about Matt and not them.
Molly schools Zach on Jane Austin. Zach, Jeremy and Molly have a communal fire. Molly notes how Jeremy only theoretically lives in Los Angeles. Jeremy notes how despite all his comments, he really hates Los Angeles and wants to be on the farm. Molly and Zach both comment how they don’t plan to live on the farm. Molly wants to fly the nest. Jeremy notes how he wants the farm and hmmm this doesn’t feel like Jeremy asserting his rights to the property at all!
Now there’s windmill parts. No one seems to know what to do, and Matt publically chides Sven for daring to suggest they read the instructions and not wing it. We watch as everyone flails about not knowing what they are doing. No one, including precious engineering minded Jeremy, has any idea what to do.
Matt gets the call from Darren and gets an order on camera.
Zach and Tory are doing a photo backdrop and need pallets. Matt wants *good*wood pallets but somehow the pallets on the farm aren’t good enough. Matt offers to treat Zach’s friends to ice cream at DQ because apparently they’re all five years old. This doesn’t feel staged at all as everyone perfectly comments on the ice cream shakes they want to the camera and sit around toasting blizzards. Matt tells all the “boys” to get pallets because Tory is such a horrible person. Its Mueller and Dan and Jake.
Matt continually comments on how the pallets are “sketch”. Zach notes that Matt is micromanaging. The pallet thing is an interesting photo background but not my style. Tory likes it and has a blond friend in tow.
Jeremy notes how the windmill is a nightmare. He doesn’t understand the plans and neither does Matt. Matt pointedly corrects Jeremy’s errors on camera and notes how the deadline won’t be met. Huh… how can Jeremy not instinctively manage? I mean he’s Matt’s chosen!
Matt calls for Camarino as Jeremy is failing. Matt is all “There’s drama and the wedding will suck”. He openly chides the Not Jeremy workers for their failures. Someone other than Jer completes significant portions of the windmill.
Molly and Tory go shopping for dresses. Molly notes how Tory is her best friend and Tory is all “Yay Molly will be my sister!” and this is actually quite sweet.
Meanwhile the windmill is still being toiled over. There’s a tower, and a crane and clearly most of the work has been done by people other than Matt and Jer. Jake appears and doesn’t speak. Oh hey, the windmill has to fit perfectly in the brackets and the brackets don’t fit and Matt notes how it MAY NOT GET DONE IN TIME FOR THE WEDDING!!!
Matt shouts again that they don’t fit!  Matt send Jer to make it fit and of course it does and Matt triumphantly shouts his joy. Then Matt gets into his mechanical penis to pretend he did something. Apparently establishing a folly windmill with no accompanying bar is a huge thing. Somehow the windmill will provide some shade despite not being all that filled in. Tory notes “Boys and their toys” and seems to know what she married into.

Matt and Amy head to the local store to look at the pumpkin salsa being sold. Roth’s does look like a Wegmans but there’s no way they’re as cool.

Tori sure looks comfortable on the camera. Is LPBW the Tori show now? Look how often she was on alone. She looks so proud of herself.

bec965 said...

It was nice to see Amy & Matt get along on tonights episode . Enjoyed the show !

k Has c said...

@ Kelly...Tori looks like she is ALMOST as comfortable as Audrey,,,Almost, who really seems super proud of herself--Audrey that is.

Ryan Velasco said...

No one cares anymore.

It's not about little people anymore it's about people who live under Matt's umbrella because they can't support themselves.

rolfan22 said...

Anyone want to go get a Rolo Blizzard at Diary Queen?

Ecossais said...

Matt's pretend drama is getting even more stupid.

Disaster!! the windmill doesn't fit the foundation. We'll have to postpone the wedding. blah, blah, blah then Jeremy genius gets it to fit.
Imaginary disaster averted.

Jase Stratton said...

What happened to Jake? Is he like off at school or something? Camp?

Rap541 said...

K Has C - the best part of the "Well, Tory is in it for the tv exposure, that lying gold digging whore!" is that no one seems to acknowledge some unpleasant truths.

Namely - the show is about Tory and Zach's wedding this season. Last season, the show was about Auj and Jer's wedding, and yes, Audrey didn't shy away from the camera in the slightest, now did she?

Any one calling her a gold digging whore for tarting herself up for the cameras and merrily accepting a paycheck to have her wedding filmed? I mean, she was right in her *glory* for the cameras and hmm... I seem to recall this season starting with AUj and Jer less than a year wed, regaling us, again, tarted up for the tv, Jer even wore his wife's hair accessories, for a *two hour special* about Auj. And funny, in Auj's wedding, she was so anxious to be a Roloff, she wanted everything Jeremy wanted - her dream was to be wed on the farm! Auj was all about maximum exposure, she even allowed her proposal to be filmed for viewing pleasure.

Even this season, Auj is making sure to see to it that she's on the tv. It's about Tory and Zach so of course we have to see Audrey and Jeremy in their new home, and Audrey flying up to attend a mud run, and sure enough Audrey coming up again and again... if there's a camera, apparently Audrey has the time.

Now I will be fair, even tho the Tory haters are not (and guys, your snide passive aggressive "Well, I jsut don't know.. I *hope* it works out but..." coupled with the "I have a bad feeling about her, I have utterly no evidence but I must say it publically, as a proud Christian, I don't trust her!" is indeed hating and being hateful per your own directives) and say that last season WAS about Audrey's wedding and therefore it's not unusual that she is featured.

Guys - this season is about *Tory's wedding*. Grow up and accept that she is going to be featured because she and Zach are getting married and Jeremy and Auj, despite their efforts, are not the featured couple. They aren't going to paste Auj's photo over her face and the show is not actually about Jeremy and Audrey.

Hannah said...

Several thoughts on last night's episode...First off becoming more and more obvious the tie ins to local businesses and chains the Roloffs are now in cahoots with. Dairy Queen and the Rolo Blizzard and Roth's Supermarket jump out as glaring endorsement deals that Matt and Amy have added to their stable of merchants and corporate business partners. Also, I would like to offer up that this whole divorce thing isn't real at all. I saw Matt and Amy interviewed on the Today Show and Amy was asked if she could see them getting back together someday and she said "Maybe..we'll see." Are you kidding me? I think they cooked up this divorce plot for ratings...maybe I'm skeptical and jaded but I could see a few seasons from now they are getting back together and having a wedding vow renewal ceremony. I don't buy it.

MS said...

"Is LPBW the Tori show now?"

Lack of material perhaps? There's nothing terribly interesting going on with Jeremy/Audrey right now, though they still manufacture air time for Jeremy with Matt's staged project of the week. Jacob is just a background player this season and looks disinterested doing even that. They never delve into Molly's life. The Zach/Tori wedding is their prime material this season along with secondary content like the Matt/Amy divorce and pumpkin salsa. The fact that they devoted an episode to mud races seems pretty indicative that they're grasping for ideas.

Once the wedding coverage runs its course, I can't imagine where the show goes next unless the married couples start churning out babies (see Duggars pre-scandal). Maybe time to pull the plug?

PJ said...

I'm sorry to say this but Baby Prince Jer is just the large economy size of Matt. Not too bright and extremely headstrong and selfish. To come up with a project that's way above his ability to understand just before Zach's wedding, not bother to read the instructions and then be surprised when he can't do it. Really?
And he also made it quite clear tonight that whatever the others wanted regarding the farm didn't matter, it was his and his alone. Which should be interesting since he also has his dad's "the farm's a giant playground" attitude. Not one apparent idea to make the farm work and support his and Ste Auj's family or pay profits to the others. The TV money isn't gonna last forever....

Ecossais said...

PJ you raise a very good question about the "farm".
I not see it as a working farm for "farmer" Jeremy to run even if he does inherit it. It is really a very small amount of land most of which is covered in buildings, swimming pool and grass. There is not much left to farm and certainly not enough cultivated to generate enough revenue to support it.

Rather than being a farm it is just a large TV set which is dependent entirely on TLC money. For example - since it was all filmed for an episode the windmill, concrete base, cranes to erect it, etc., were all presumably paid for by TLC.

Jamie said...

MS,

Jeremy will move back to the farm and build a house with his bare hands (a model with popsicle sticks). Tori or Audrey will get pregnant. Amy and Matt will reconcile, or start dating other people, all plausible.

Hannah,

It's possible the divorce could be for ratings, but I don't know. Amy and Matt are like oil and water. I know for sure the announcement of the divorce right before the season premiere was clearly for ratings. The show is their income source, so who knows the lengths they will go. Have they even legally divorced yet? If they haven't that makes me wonder. Actually I bet they'll remain legally married for the financial benefits etc.

And I'm pretty sure Jeremy moved to Bend because his favorite pastor/ "mentor" Dale Partridge is from there. Dale will teach you how to be successful, for a fee of course. Jeremy wants to be a businessman. I'm sure he'll reach out to Dale eventually.

k Has c said...

Gee ... I could be wrong here but I think Roths Grocery Store is down in Salem, what about all the stores near The Roloff Compound? And i might add there are many. Just makes me go hmmmmm..... ;)

Rap541 said...

Ecossis - the windmill idiocy really outlined how forced the show is these days.

Zach and Tory didn't ask for a windmill. I am willing to wait on total judgement, in that the initial plan, that the windmill is part of a novelty bar arrangement where guests will get drinks at least looked interesting. However, if all we have at the wedding is Matt pointing to a windmill, then it's just another useless piece of crap that Matt insisted on.

So lets see. Jeremy is in town because he's certainly not working at his incredibly successful photography business. He and Matt order up the parts and then stare at the instructions like idiots. They obviously didn't build it themselves because we jump from Jeremy admitting he has no clue to professionals erecting the almost complete windmill.

Then we have the ensuing drama of the fittings not lining up and Matt just about jumping with glee to screech how the wedding has to be canceled. And what a lovely asshole moment that is - Matt yet again wanting someone's wedding shut down because of his need to be the center of attention. Now, I know the drama was fake, and if something went really wrong, Matt would simply shut his mouth and never mention it again (like the trial where he was gonna take it all the way to the Supreme Court... but funny how Matt shut his little bitch mouth about being a fighter over that, huh?) but I would seriously ask this of people who support Matt. Can you conceive of Matt seriously turning to Jeremy and saying "well, there's a minor problem with a project that isn't actually required for your wedding but if it isn't fixed, we're cancelling your wedding"?

Does anyone believe that would ever be said to Jeremy?

PJ - my slight disagreement with you is that I am sure that the windmill project was so that there would be a reason for Jeremy to actually appear in the episode... since you know, he was supposed to be working at his successful business in LA.

Anonymous said...

Well said rap.

Rap541 said...

MS - my interesting thought on where the show goes is that it really has to be Zach and Tory getting knocked up. I know I will upset the Jer/Auj fans with this but... no one cares about the average height marrieds having a baby. The public wants that little bit of angst - will it be a dwarf or an average height? And Jer and Auj are not at risk UNLESS Audrey has the dyastrophic genes and I really hope she doesn't.

But Zach and Tory being first to have a baby would change the family dynamic a lot. A grandchild would immediately displace Jeremy and I don't think he'd like that much. (Frankly I wondered if his and Audrey's decision to not get knocked up right away was due in part to his realizing that the baby would take his place as first in line.)

PJ said...

I don't disagree with you Rap. But this episode really pointed out the Matt-ness in Baby Prince Jer.
No one will ever be in line in front of Matt,not even the first grandchild.
And if Jer's hair gets any longer he's gonna need tap shoes and the sheet music to "On the Good Ship Lollipop"

Axe said...

The entire episode was fake. Their acting is getting bad with each new episode. The way they edit is wrong too. They showed Portland when Matt and Amy were driving to Roth's but Roth's headquarters is in Salem and all their stores are in the Salem area. If coming from the farm you don't go into Portland or pass by Portland to Salem. Well you can pass by Portland but it would the long way to go. They showed driving across the river from East Portland into downtown Portland. I think the reason they did that was to make the show better because driving to Salem is all on the freeway.
I find it weird that Amy or Matt are not concerned about Jeremy losing work time to fly home. Amy and Matt are not concern about bothering Jeremy to help them every time something is needed on the farm. I know that filming is scheduled on certain days but still. They are never shown concern about what ever their kids are doing. It's all about the kids helping Amy or Matt even if they like it or not.

I think the future of the show will be Jeremy and Audrey building a house on the farm and Amy opening a bed and breakfast on the farm.

bandito said...

Wegmans forever!!!

Anonymous said...

Where's jeremy ever going to get the money to buy the farm?

Rap541 said...

I find it weird that Amy or Matt are not concerned about Jeremy losing work time to fly home.

The obvious answer to that is that Jeremy clearly isn't working, since he's always free to be Matt's lil helper bitch.

Mydick Hurts said...

Becoming very obvious that the Roloffs divorcing is a SHAM .. . this will never happen. Just a part of the ratings game. . . The loser, prince Jer will claim his birthright & take over, run the farm (sure) . . guess that means that Matt & Amy will have to give Jer a 1/3 share of everything . . the yearly pumpkin thing, the salsa. . .there's no almost no money to be made here when TLC leaves . . Little Zack & Tori will survive. Zack with his part-time soccer field job (better suited to a 16 yr old) & Tori babysitting preschoolers . . . at least they won't starve. . . Jacob. . . he'l take his old bedroom back. . .

Shout out to Wegmans! Yeah!

Rap541 said...

Isn't Wegmans the best? Man, I miss them so bad!

Ecossais said...

Anonymous - I have no idea how much the farm is mortgaged but I assume Prince Jeremy thinks he is going to inherit it (never mind the other siblings).

Crates said...

I follow Audrey on snapchat and today she posted a small video of a wedding invitation that was sent to her.

I have family that live in Bend OR and the address that was on that envelope is for a 4 bedroom house that sells for 380,000. I don't think jeremy and auj are hurting for money.

They live near the farm now and jeremy posted on his twitter that he and auj will be there in person for every pumpkin season now.

Anonymous said...

Jeremy doesn't need money to buy the farm. He will inherit the farm. I'm sure that Matt and Amy will leave the farm to all four kids. Matt is always talking about he wants his kids to have the farm. Let the kids fight over it like spoiled kids do when their parents die.
Jeremy will run the farm and go bankrupt because he doesn't know how to work for a living. When the family was at the food convention in California Jeremy was heard saying something about it's hard work to make money or million dollars. He doesn't know how to work because everything is given to him by his parents or TLC.

mamaWheels said...

I have a quick question, just curious if anyone else noticed that Jeremy wears two different wedding rings? He had both a gold band and then a black band on in the latest episode. I notice things like that, and wondered if I was the only one who saw it?? I really need to go back and re-watch the episode. I actually love this family, not a hater at all, however I am becoming disenchanted by the "hollywood" of it all. Plugs for products DQ , sorry Roloff's that was so lame, and we all saw through it. Also, the Roth's store as well. I will continue to watch, but with a watchful eye. I like true reality, and it was in the beginning, but not so much anymore.

Unknown said...

Roth's is literally a few blocks from my house. They love offering up local faire. I'm sure the Roloff salsa was a no-brainier for them. I still haven't meandered in there for my own jar of $6 salsa. Bad fan, I know.

Alex said...

@Crates, I saw that too and was wondering how they're paying for it...

and @mamaWheels, I noticed that too... I don't think he's switching rings, I think the filming is done out of order. I noticed when we saw his ring for the first time it looked wooden, so my guess is that it didn't last like he hoped it would, so he switched to the new metal, lighter colored one. He had the original wood ring and then it broke/decayed/whatever and he switched it, I think.

PJ said...

The dark metal is what he had on at the wedding reception.

Crates said...

@Alex
Once I saw how much the house was and how much the rent was before someone bought it I thought audrey must be doing well off her giveaway goods posts in her blog and instagram! Funny though, if I look at her snap chats and her instagram she literally wears like the same 4 or 5 outfits on repeat. No matter what the occasion and jeremy ALWAYS seems unhappy and irratated in her snapchats.

I was never a fan of audrey from the wedding episodes and thought she was kinda into herself. Then I started reading her blogs and I really liked her. But once I added snapchat.........I started kinda not likin her. Especially the long winded God post on Instagram but then later she posted 7 videos of partying and drinking in snapchat.....

Jerome said...

I find it hilarious that Matt calls Jeremy "farmer". He wouldn't last a couple hours on a "real" farm.

Alex said...

@PJ I think the dark one was actually wooden - I remember Jeremy posting a pic on Instagram and saying where he got it. Anyway, I think the new one looks much nicer.

@Crates, I follow Audrey on snapchat too and her videos are ridiculous! Glad you caught on too that Jeremy always seems unhappy... I noticed that as well. He always seems totally annoyed. And yeah I saw those videos of her partying too.... absurd that everyone thinks she's this amazing young woman who's doing God's work yet goes out and gets hammered with her friends.

@Jerome I know, lol. I've worked on many real, operating farms and it is HARD work. Getting up at sunrise or earlier... I bet Jer still sleeps in til noon like he used to on the show. Roloff Farms is barely a farm, it's an attraction.

pj said...

If Jer really wanted to run the farm why did he not go to college either for agriculture or some sort of hospitality/amusement park management? Then he could have made the farm profitable. But I don't think he had any intention of taking over the farm, he's only doing so now because the world of photography didn't fall at his feet in awe.

Itsme3 said...

Hi. Did anyone catch when they Tori and Zach were going over the guest list and he said his grandparents (Amy's parents)weren't attending? It was the part where Tori corrected Zach how to say his own Grandmothers name."it's Patricia" "No, nobody ever called my grandmother that it is Patrizia" or something to that effect. I was wondering if they were ill or why they couldn't attend. Anywhoo i was liking Tori, but this last episode shows her becoming a new version of Amy Roloff. Don't you think? Zach looks scared to even disagree with her.

Alina said...

Crates, you're more than right. In her snapchats you can see she wears the same 4 dresses/outfits every day, but somehow she has all this money?
Btw, they are renting in Bend, they didn't buy the house. They were renting in LA for well over 2 grand a month. Bend is probably cheaper but still spendy. Honestly, Audrey seems to be "well off" but I don't know if she is.
Also it does bug me how she posts so many videos of her drinking on snapchat. If you're gonna be so open about your snapchat be aware who follows you on there.
Drinking and partying is God's plan.....

Ecossais said...

Rap's review is better than watching the show.
It covers everything of any consequence without the boredom of watching almost an hour of filler material and Matt's never ending bossing, complaining and fake theatrics.

Thanks Rap.

I see next Tuesday is 8 hours (2 - 10) of LPBW. TLC must be either short of
material or "stroking" Matt with residual fees.

If anyone knows how it works I would be interested to know if the Roloffs have to pay for things like Matt's wonderful windmill out of their combined appearance fees or if Matt conns TLC into paying as part of the "set" and necessary phony drama.
Likewise will TC pay for the wedding since they are making a whole show out of it.
I suspect thins like Zach's suit, flowers, etc., are complementary. If so why all Matt's fuss about a budget?

Ecossais said...

But Jerome - "farmer" Jer can drive a "farm" tractor and move dirt around with a track hoe.

Anonymous said...

Is LPBW the Tori show now

If it is, it's because the producers think Tori is more interesting than anyone else. Including Jeremy and Audrey.

Crates said...

@alex there were some snapchats that I honestly dont know why she posted...Jeremy seemed so irratated and rude that I almost felt embarrassed for her!!

@Alina there was like a 5 day period where she literally wore "the black jumper" from her blog like 3 times. When the family went to LA to do press and film the interview for the season ending, Jeremy wore the same shirts for 3 days.

Im not sure if anyone else has noticed either but shes done 5 giveaway goods on her instagram. So far 3 of them she has given to her friends. Literally hundreds or more people tag and post all over her instagram when she does these giveaways because thats what she says you have to do to win it. Muellers wife won the essentail oils package, her former Oregon State running mate won the Copadavino wine giveaway, and conveniently one of her close friends Brittany( in many of her instagram pictures and brittany has jeremy and audrey in a lot of hers) recently won the 300 dollar leather bag! Im not sure about the two other winners........but there seems to be some leghumpers believing shes endorsing products she really believes in, but from where Im sitting it seems like shes just trying to make a buck and give her friends freebies.

Anonymous said...

Jeremy and Audrey don't live near the farm. Bend is about 3 1\2 hours away. A four bedroom house in Bend would rent for at least $2000.00
I doubt Jeremy works on the farm like a normal farmer does. They have farm help? who does the day to day chores. Feed the animals and take care of the pumpkins.
They probably right the windmill off as a business expense since they have a pumpkin patch. Anything that has to do with the pumpkin patch or the wedding business would be paid by the business and not out of Roloff's personal money. They write off on their taxes as business expense.
Audrey's family is well off. She was on the high ski team and that is expensive sport. The family would go skiing at Mt Bachelor in Bend and that is more expensive than going skiing at Mt Hood.

Umm. Has anyone seen Jacobs Twitter background picture yet?

Ashley said...

Anon, where was Jacob's background pic taken?? I assume that's marijuana? Is that on Roloffs farms?? Or is that at Jacob's "job" that people have been hinting at?

Ashley said...

Now Jacob is tweeting "Joynts"...sounds like *somebody* is stoned tonight....

Denise Z said...

His picture looks photoshopped.

Shelby said...

I wish Jacob would overdose already. What a waste of a life he is. He is all about getting high all the time, bragging about it, hating on Christian values, hating on the police and hating on white people while trying to suck up to black people.

If anyone deserves bad karma, it is Jacob.

Ashley said...

Denise, it doesn't look photoshopped to me. Especially not when you consider the grin on his face and it is Jacob who is posting it himself.

Abby said...

Does Jacob really think smoking pot makes him cool? Why is he always plastering it everywhere and tweeting about it every day or posting pictures?

Why does he care so much that people know he's a stoner?

Jim said...

Jacob trashes his parents as terrible for using him for ratings but he waltzes back to the farm anytime he wants. They need to get a backbone and lock his ass out.

Rap541 said...

Crates - its really rather amusing that only Audrey's friends win her giveaways... I had wondered why she never announces the winners.

Audrey fans - she has a new post up and I am genuinely interested in how you felt closer to Christ after reading Audrey's Jesus inspired words on how she likes black rompers!

Come on Christians... regale me with how Auj's clothing preferences inspired you to love God :)

Jeremy and Audrey and Matt and Amy are well aware of Jacob's tweets and do and say nothing but offer praise to Jacob. Not one of the good, praiseworthy, example setting Christians you admire will agree with your views that Jacob is a terrible person.

Shelby - "I wish Jacob would overdose already." - This tells me more about what a terrible person you are than anything else. People often accuse me of "hating" Jeremy - not once have I ever wished death on him. Seriously consider what all this hate is doing to your own soul because really, only scum wish death on people they've never even met.

UltimaAtaraxia said...

Some of you people on here are seriously pathetic and sick. Shelby, you can hate the fact that Jacob is not a Christian and smokes pot all you want, but to say that he deserved to die from an overdose is sickening.

How can you seriously call yourself a Christian? All of you people who say horrible things about, Jacob and the roloff when you do not know a thing about them aside from the show, is just plan ignorant and ridiculous.

But honestly, the sad thing is that Jacob out of all the Roloffs is the most respectable of them all. Jacob isn't afraid to express how he truly feels. Just because you don't agree his mindset doesn't mean he deserves to die.

News flash, not everyone is Christian. Nor does everyone have to agree with others beliefs. It is more reasonable to respect people's differences. Also weed is no where near as harmful and murderous as alcohol or tobacco, but they are sold by the millions.

You people hate Jacob because you love hating on someone who isn't intimidated by your insults and beliefs and instead continues to express how he feels about controversial issues.

Out if all the Roloffs, Jacob is respectable because he says how he feels. He stands up for what he believes in and knows how to agree to disagree. Something you people clearly do not know how to grasp.

You people are pathetic if you think someone like Jacob, who is honest and stands up for what he believes in without speculating and wishing harm on others, is worse than you. You come here to bash him. You follow him on social media, just to criticize everything he does. You are the ones that are cruel and sickening.

I am agnostic and people like you prove how hypocritical some "Christians", can be. Out of everything in the Bible the things you use to judge others are so minor compared to the things some of you judgemental Christians emit towards those who think differently than you do. What great, Christians you are.

I apologize for this, but I had to express this. I come here sometimes to quickly read the comments and the ridiculous Jacob hate just gets to me. Out of all of the Roloffs he is the only one to show his true colors. That is a quality worthy of respect, not ridicule.

Pamela said...

Is there any proof only Audrey's friends win the contests? Or is that typical anonymous smear tactics?

Rap541 said...

Pamela - I am perfectly willing to consider Crates might be lying. Are you willing to consider it might be true?

And I am curious - can you explain to me how Auj's deep thoughts on black rompers brought you closer to Jesus? Since her writing is Jesus inspired and inspires you to have religious thoughts? I mean, Anne says Auj's blog is like a ministry so did you read the article about Auj's love of clothes and count it as church attendance?

Greg said...

Jacob brings the hate on himself. I'm not even religious but I can't blame anybody who hopes for the worst to happen to Jacob. Stop trying to be PC. It's natural to have an adverse reaction to someone who is an arrogant jerk. He obnoxiously insults people and their views. Nobody looks at a jerk and says "I hope they win the lottery!"

Crates said...

@Pamela audrey usually will post the winners name on Sunday in the caption Of her picture in instagram. You can click right on the hyperlink of their name and it takes you to their instagram. If you don't want to scroll down through all of them just do the recent leather diaper bag one and you will see Brittany is the winner and you need to only see a couple pages of her instagram to see she is friends with audrey and jeremy.

Pamela said...

Crates, you're the one making allegations. You provide direct links. Show the proof that Mueller's wife won? And thec one after that. And the next one. Provide the evidence.

Ashley said...

Pamela, I found the Brittany winner winner. It is Audrey's Instagram picture in the black dress with the bag in the park like setting. It starts out "***giveaway closed winner is @brittany_poppins***" if you click on her instagram and look at her pictures you'll see she is friends with Audrey and Jeremy. There is a picture from July of Brittany with Audrey and Jeremy at the beach together.

So much for the theory that none of the christian creeps have never wished harm on Jake.
" Anonymous Shelby said...

I wish Jacob would overdose already. What a waste of a life he is. He is all about getting high all the time, bragging about it, hating on Christian values, hating on the police and hating on white people while trying to suck up to black people.

If anyone deserves bad karma, it is Jacob.

Crates has provided proof. If you're too lazy to follow the trail then please be quiet.

Greg,
And yet Baby Prince Jer is also an arrogant jerk is being deified by the Anneite loons. At least Jake is honest, Jer hides his BS now days. And for people who are supposed to be at least trying to live a moral and forgiving life wishing pure evil on another soul is just horrid.

Pamela - Ashley found proof....

So at least ONE of the giveaways open to everyone went to one of Auj's pals...

Your thoughts? Or is it just coincidental that the winner of the expensive bag also has gone to the beach with Audrey?

It indeed says Brittany Poppins is the winner. Here's a link from Brittany's instagram with Jeremy and Audrey at the beach.

This took me five minutes Pamela - you're the one calling Crates a liar so maybe instead of just whining "No No NO! I'm a petulant child! If I refuse to look then it's not true and I can close my eyes and ears and insist I'm right!" maybe you should consider checking things out.

Jacob's picture with the marijuana leaf and the lighter beside it is disgusting. He needs treatment and therapy.

Katnip said...

There goes Shelby again. Only a (deleted) would wish death upon someone else.
To say she wishes someone would overdose is complete garbage.
Shelby, you are trash and a horrible excuse for a human being. Even as Christians, his family would hate to see anyone say that about him. Think about yourself for a second.
You're awful.

Who wants to bet Pamela doesn't apologize?

Pamela said...

So that doesn't prove anything that a couple of people that Audrey knows won some of her contests. It makes logical, mathematical, statistical sense. Her friends would support her by entering in the contests as she encourages everyone to do, so some of the winners naturally would be people she knows.

There's no proof that it is rigged or that Audrey is doing anything dishonest. That is all innuendo and a smear campaign against Audrey.

Rap541 said...

Katnip - unfortunately your point will be lost. Shelby will note she's not a Christian, or that Jake is soooooo awful that her wishing publically that she hopes he dies is justifiable because you know, he smokes pot.

Hey Shelby, *Jeremy* has smoked weed and been drunk under age too. Do you want Jeremy to die?

Shelby - who else do you *hate* and *want dead*? I mean, you're such a nice person merrily hating and wishing death on people, does your mom and dad know your little ragefilled hobby? How you get on line and talk about how you want people to die because you hate them?

I've NEVER said something that vile about any Roloff but I am the one who gets called a hater. Hey Christians? Are you standing with Shelby?

I really want the Christians to sound off on this. Shelby has publically stated she hopes Jacob overdoses. Christians? Do you think she's right? Do you support Shelby's message? In the name of Jesus, do you ALL wish Jacob would die of an overdose?

I'm genuinely curious if wishing someone dead crosses a line or is just "being a good jesus loving Christian"?

Rap541 said...

Pamela - please provide your logical, mathematical reasoning. You've just stated its a matter of statistics. Provide your proof. You're talking facts here, so provide them.

And ofg course, as a Christian, don't apologize for being wrong and calling people liars. I assume you justify your nastiness with how its ok to hate for the love of Auj and Jesus, right? Jesus wants you to bear false witness if it defends a Roloff?

Jim said...

@Katnip, using Roloff family measures as a beacon of morality in speaking out against Jacob is laughable.

They won't say the slightest negative word against Jacob. Of course they "wouldn't like" the well deserved wishes of negative karma to befall Jacob.

He is a spoiled brat jerk. Good people don't like him. People hope for bad things to happen to the jerk. It makes perfect sense.

Rachel said...

I don't mind saying that I support Shelby. It's totally understandable. There are good people who I hope for the best for and there are bad people that I hope they get what they deserve. We are talking about natural events, karma, consequences for your own bad behavior which the bad karma catches up to a person. Saying "overdose already" to someone who promotes drugs to kids and hates on the police is kind of mild and totally understandable.

It's the same as saying or thinking "I hope they only injure themselves" when they tweet pictures of themselves taking selfies while driving or looking stoned out of his mind while appearing to be in the driver seat (although Isabel later tried to back track and say it was the back seat, it sounded like damage control, but who knows, they've done a lot of other unsafe things anyway) I hope they injure themselves instead of innocent people.

Rap541 said...

So as a Christian, you think its a moral good to wish someone dead....

That's interesting. Any other Christians on board with this?

Psst Rachel... have you actually read the bible?

And would you support me if I wished Jeremy dead because of his racist remarks and animal abuse? And, you know, his pot smoking?

Or would that be indecent?

Rap541 said...

Rachel - also - does wishing someone dead make a person a "Jesus loving Christian"?

Crates said...

I am certainly not saying she is dishonest and I am not trying to "smear" anything. I am someone who used to really enjoy reading her blog and feel disappointed in some things she does now. I'm not losin sleep over it and I do not wish her ill will. However, I will say that if you notice over a thousand people and counting try to win her giveaways.....it doesn't seem "statistical" that more than half of her giveaways are given to people she knows personally or that are friends.

Ashley said...

Just fyi, I found the one that Mueller's wife one. It is Audrey's June 24th instagram. The picture is the one of the Bamboo Difuser and the V6 bottles. It says "Giveaway closed winner Dessmuel" who is obviously Mueller's wife.

Thanks Crates. I never paid attention to the winners. Just as I was clicking through now

gee .. . not very fair is it? Audrey, a true Roloff continues to bring shame on the Roloff clan. . . At Least Jacob is honest . . he takes the money & runs . .

Ecossais said...

It is statistically true that if a lot of the people entering for Audrey's give-aways are her friends then there is an enhanced likelihood of one of them winning but in just about every legitimate instance where something is being given away family, friends and employees are excluded from participating.

It is obvious that Audrey is not the shining perfect Christian saint that some on here seem to believe.

Ashley said...

I quickly looked back and saw 5 winners.

1 was Mueller's wife Destiney.

1 was Brittany who has the beach pic with Audrey and Jeremy.

1 was a girl whose profile picture shows her as a runner for Oregon State. I don't know if she's Audrey friend, but my guess is yes since the girl mentioned the last 6 years and Audrey was on Oregon State's track team.

2 were bloggers. I couldn't tell if they know Audrey. I would need to see if they are in the network of Audrey's bloggers that all promote each other. They did both look like they could be Audrey's friends. All of Audrey's friends are around the same age and fairly pretty with lots of make up.

Rap541 said...

Crates, trust me, you're awakening the kraken with this.

Pamela - if Audrey is attempting to make her blog into a business concern (and she does seem to be) then there's a problem with even one of the giveaways going to a personal friend. Let me explain.

Her giveaways involve her requiring people to register for her site and to give her "likes" on her instagram and to also follow whoever the giveaway partner is. "Likes" and increasing someone else's traffic to view their products is the *point* of the giveaways, because it means she is driving more potential buyers to the giveaway sponsor websites. However, if only people who personally know Audrey or who have a relationship, business or friendship, are the ones who win the giveaways... then its not really fair and there's no point in "randoms" or people who aren't in Audrey's social circle to bother participating.

So basically Audrey profits from leading people on with the giveaways. I'm not even saying it's intentional, but having even one prize go to a personal friend gives the whole business the appearance of a scam and if she's running the blog as her business, then she needs to be more careful. She may not be intending anything dishonest but it gives the impression of being dishonest.

Timothy said...

I have serious doubts that its not intentional. Thousands of people enter apparently and Muellers wife who is in the wedding parties just happens to win? And her beach friend? And a track team member from Audrey's University.

Rap541 said...

Timothy - I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, but Ashley makes a good point. The giveaways began in early June and there's been nine so far. Even if just one went to a friend, that's odd... If *five* of the giveaways have gone to direct friends and business associates then really, yes, it looks intentional.

Audrey scheming & giving $$ gifts to her friends in a "rigged" contest.So what else is new? For 10 yrs. we have watched Matt coning, scheming the public week after week.Year after year. How the Christians embrace this family of con artists is beyond me. They can't see the sin? None of them work (well, little Zack does have a part-time job at a soccer field, better suited to a 16yr old). U look at this long term, where would these schemers be without the freak channel? I cannot picture these lazy boys getting "real" jobs in the "real world".

Writing things like the windmill off as a business expense isn't "magic" money. The item still has to be paid for. If it comes out of revenues/profits and perhaps saves on "profits" tax it may have to be capitalized and amortized and not just written off in the current financial year.

where were?...

Matt's sister and family?
Amy's parents?
Amy's other sister and brother and families?

Thought they were all close according to holiday episodes aired earlier?

I thought maybe jacob would entertain the girls at the bachelorett party. Like jump out of a cake wearing just a loincloth!

ShadyPete said...

Sounds like the contest is on the wrong side of the law.

Clumper said...

I'm sure she got a lot of advice from papa Matt regarding her website and how to run he contest. We hear about his business acumen and knowledge of the law enough. If she's doing anything wrong it's because of Matt.
