Jacob Roloff and Isabel Garreton announced their engagement. Jacob had proposed while they were on a trip together in Iceland over Christmas.
Like the other Roloffs on LPBW, they kept things quiet for a while -- during an Isabel "Live Story" in early January, her viewers were often asking "when is he going to propose" to which Isabel asked Jacob -- Jacob was next to Isabel in the live video but not on screen as Isabel described him as "unavailable", off camera Jacob could be heard saying "I'm rolling a joint!"
Other than the "rolling a joint" comment in a live and deleted video, the once rebellious Roloff, Jacob (and his girlfriend, Isabel), have morphed into the perfect Roloff Family Friendly character that fits perfectly with the show Little People, Big World.
Jacob once despised the show describing it as fake, phony and once infamously revealed that the other Roloffs were simply playing characters on the show and according to Jacob, nothing like the people he knows in "real life". He once vowed to never sign another contract to be on the show again.
Jacob's online content now fits nicely with the rest of the Roloffs. Jacob and Isabel are now living with Amy Roloff. Most of his online posts consists of smiling and laughing photos, positive messages often praising the rest of his family. His fiancee, Isabel, following in the footsteps of Tori and Audrey, is often gushing about how blessed by God she is to have such wonderful soon to be family surrounding her and of course - in true Roloff fashion, is usually promoting the other Roloffs products when she is not selling her own items.
That is another similarity Jacob has with the rest of his family. He has cleaned up his social media -- often deleting any "negative' comments which mention his past statements -- and leaving only the comments praising him for being a fine young man. Jacob now is selling his writing, he has a book coming out that he is selling on Amazon entitled "Out to see". Isabel is selling her art work to fans of LPBW.
For anyone expecting a "tell all" truthful book from Jacob, you will be sadly disappointed. In his latest Instagram post, he posted an excerpt from the book in which he praises his parents Matt and Amy Roloff.
Jacob gushes about Matt -- praising him for teaching him practical things like chess, how to build fires, critical thinking and his ability as a story teller. He praises mom Amy for always making sure the kids knew they were loved, coaching their soccer teams, and for instilling a good sense of manners in him and his siblings.
In the past Jacob has said he wished he didn't feel like he was being "F*cked out of my money I earned from the show" and criticized parents for putting their young children on their reality television shows for ratings. He also once posted a photo of 6 year old dwarf child on another TLC reality show and criticized that child's parents for the decision.
Now Jacob and Isabel are often participating in social media posts with Jacob's nephew, Jackson and niece, Ember. Some people have commented to some of Jacob's ultra positive posts, reminding him of his words that he said about children being exploited for their reality tv family ratings and hoped he would keep that in mind as Jackson is the subject of a story line for LPBW and constantly in Zach and Tori's social media. Jacob usually deletes those "negative" (yet true) posts from his social media and his posts are now "liked" by all other members of the Roloff family.
