Casey King Reveals His Biggest Challenges on His Weight Loss Journey

Published

on

Reality TV stars usually shock the viewer through dramatic, often negative actions. While that frequently happens with weight loss shows such as “The Biggest Loser,” “My 600-lb Life,” and “1000-lb Sisters,” when patients find excuses, argue or berate their loved ones or the doctor, or ignore medical advice, sometimes the shock is closer to confusion. Casey King weighed nearly 850lbs or 385kgs before joining the “Family By The Ton” TV show in 2018 as a cousin to the main stars, the six Anderson sisters. After a bariatric operation, he shed over two-thirds of his weight, and his BMI (Body Mass Index) would have been in the average range if it weren’t for the excess skin. Nonetheless, his journey was difficult, and he had several obstacles to success.

Casey King lost a staggering amount of weight

Casey “Case” King is a Georgia native who was morbidly obese and weighed 711lb or 322,5kg when he was cast in the show, but his weight peaked at around the number above. Initially, he was reluctant to change anything, stating that he would ‘just eat until I’m dead’, and that he doesn’t plan to lead an active life. Casey cited a history of obesity as early as his elementary school days, and noted that he had to stay naked most of the time to endure the Georgia heat. Luckily, by 2023, he’d shed over 600lbs or 272kgs, and become the show’s most famous success story. He is now active on social media, and talks about his incredible weight loss and improved life. He also plans to undergo a skin removal operation, and wants to stay under 225lbs, 102kgs.

He was a lazy, food-addicted gamer

Casey’s most significant problem came from his food addiction and easy access to food. He admitted to waking up around noon, immediately thinking about what he would eat while sitting in bed, and only getting up to go to the bathroom or grab something at home. While sitting there throughout the day, he ordered food, ate unhealthy food he bought, or had his father bring him meals. Casey would play video games and watch TV before going back to bed, and because he was jobless, the next day would look similar.

Casey also stated that having online friends who couldn’t see his appearance helped him ignore the alarming weight gain. However, contrary to what many addicts do, he never gave up on playing video games during his journey. Instead, he found a balance that didn’t hurt his work or physical activity. Casey stated, ‘Video games are where I escaped. I’m accepted in those virtual reality worlds. No one sees me, and I can be the Casey I want to be, without being judged by my weight.’

Casey’s daily hygiene required work

However, early in the show, as his weight increased, his daily hygiene suffered. His folds and flaps gave him the most trouble, since he had to ‘roll over and wallow, almost like a pig,’ only to reach his legs. Casey also could not clean himself after defecation, because he couldn’t get to all the spots near his back and below him. Moreover, the hot weather in Georgia and restrictive, ill-fitting clothes became a considerable problem; hence, he spent nearly all his time naked. Bathing was another issue; over time, he could no longer fit into a regular-sized bath or shower, and even got stuck in the shower several times, once for nine hours. To solve the problem, his father built him a bathtub from a trough, and put it on his back deck.

Casey returned to leading an active life

Casey admitted that he was always ‘a big kid’ who weighed about 300lbs or 136kgs by the time he left high school, but that he remained active in the past and cited that he loved running, an activity that would be the staple of his weight loss. However, the frequency of his physical activities decreased as he left high school and began working in restaurants.

Over time, he gained weight, crossing the 500lbs or 227kgs mark, and eventually quit his job. Expectedly, eating the same amount of food or more while physically inactive made his weight rise uncontrollably.

To lose enough weight to qualify for the bariatric operation, Casey had to learn to put physical activity into everything that he did, and challenge himself in things that he already liked, such as running or hiking. He started jogging as much as his joins allowed, and has done several 5K races since the early 2020s. He also started doing aqua aerobics, while staying over at his mother’s house.

Furthermore, he realized that having a goal, getting out of the house, and meeting people were crucial components of a happy life. Thus, he found a job at Home Depot in 2020, where he’s worked since.

His dad was an enabler

The show demonstrated that Casey wasn’t a functional adult. However, it also showed that he would have no choice but to become one if his father was absent, because he moved in with him after quitting his job and falling in love with food. His dad’s love damaged him more than it helped; he wanted to make Casey happy, and they both enjoyed easy access to food. Thus, they would order Japanese hibachi and sushi by the barrel, before Casey moved on to even larger portions, and began indulging in unhealthy meals.

That wasn’t a problem when he was at his heaviest, however, on a diet plan during the show, the convenience of such food was alluring, compared to preparing healthier variants he now eats

He had to accept his mother’s help

Dr. Charles Procter Jr., the show’s surgeon, proposed a vertical sleeve gastrectomy operation, a form of a gastric sleeve bypass, to help Casey curb his appetite. However, although he predicted a loss of between 70 and 100lbs, 32 to 45kgs in several months to a year, Casey had to work hard to qualify.

That’s where his mother, Casey King, whom he jokingly started calling ‘a drill sergeant,’ came into the picture. She was indirectly responsible for his weight gain, since she kicked him out of her house when he showed no desire to get a job and contribute to the household in other ways. Unlike his father, she was strict about his diet, and kept him accountable when he thought of eating cheat meals. Consequently, Casey dropped to under 700lbs or 315kgs with solid willpower and his mother’s rigorous supervision.

After Dr. Charles reduced the size of his stomach from ‘the size of a basketball to the size of a racquetball’ in 2019, Casey weighed 630lbs or 285kgs. Commenting on the situation, Casey said, ‘Being at my mom’s place is kinda like being at fat camp. I’ll do whatever she says while I’m here, but I feel like I can’t keep this up after I leave.’

Nevertheless, although he still thinks dieting sucks, he focused on simplicity, and stated that finding healthy food choices became more manageable at home. For instance, Casey focuses on eating protein-heavy foods not fried or topped with high-sugar. He also avoids sugary drinks, and consistently drinks water.

Casey had to ignore bad examples

Most people forget that Casey joined the TV show with his morbidly obese cousins, Amy, Ed and Amanda – they motivated each other, but Casey was by far the heaviest. Therefore, his cousins, who weighed between 400 and 450lbs or 180 and 204kgs, could afford to break their diet and exercise plans because their goal weight was closer, and they weren’t homebound and unable to care for their basic needs. Moreover, though jokingly, his mother often offered Casey snacks to see if his resolve would falter when he saw others eating, talking about, or showing the things he craved.

He never dated

One of the most significant consequences of his shut-in lifestyle and excessive weight was his dating life. Casey admits he never got close to people more than on a friendship level.

With that in mind, he lost his virginity at 35 or 36, i.e., in 2019 or 2020, and had only begun dating in mid-2021. While Casey was single in the first quartal of 2023, he revealed that he had six sexual partners, and had to learn everything about girls in his late 30s. He concludes that girls are pretty, smell good, and are fun to kiss and that while challenging to achieve, dating and physical intimacy were things that he was starved for; hence he didn’t know that he wanted them.

While he found this new world exciting, and sex vulnerable and impactful, he wasn’t fully happy with his appearance. Therefore, Casey was uncomfortable undressing in the bedroom, citing that his feeling and desire were there with women, but that his mind wasn’t entirely in it, but believed that removing excess skin would solve the problem.

Casey needed a skin removal operation

On his 37th birthday in November 2021, Casey announced that he was approaching his goal weight, and was currently at 255lbs or 115kgs, 5lbs or 2,5kgs away from the weisght he never imagined was possible. By early May 2022, he was at 247lbs or 112kg; on Valentine’s Day in 2023, he saw 242lbs or 110kgs on the scale, and a TMZ interview in March revealed his weight had dropped to 232lbs or 105kgs.

However, despite his realization that he was the healthiest he’d been since high school, and that he never loved himself more, one problem remained. Although Casey’s weight was still far from ideal for his height, the excess skin made up a significant portion.

That’s where Casey faced three challenges, which he shared during a January 2022 interview with Ethan Klein, the YouTuber behind the channel h3h3Productions. First, waiting until he saves enough money with his Home Depot job would slow his progress, but he was willing to wait. Second, he needed to find a doctor he trusted and could afford. Third, accepting help, especially financially, didn’t work in his favor in the case of his father.

However, he unexpectedly had to face all those challenges at once. Ethan promised to start a fundraiser via GoFundMe, and over 950 viewers and Casey’s fans shattered the initial goal of $15,000, donating over $19,500 by early April 2023. Therefore, he had to accept the ‘outpouring of support from these legitimate strangers and the flood of compliments on his looks,’ both new to him, before he started calling plastic surgeons’ clinics to schedule an operation.

Casey King should reach his target weight

Casey has demonstrated an iron will to turn his life around, and at this point had lost 615lbs or 280kgs from when he was the heaviest, and 480lbs or 220kgs since he stepped on the scale at the beginning of the show.

Moreover, in his TMZ interview in March 2023, he revealed that $18,000 from the GoFundMe fundraiser was in his bank account, that he was meeting doctors, and plans to go under the knife by the end of 2023. With a smaller stomach, a solid diet plan, lots of physical activities, and a happy and active social and professional life, Casey will undoubtedly reach his goal weight and likely get closer to 210lbs or 95kgs once the extra skin is gone.

The Saddest Stories Ever Featured in Paternity Court

Published

on

About “Paternity Court”

“Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court”, which ran from 2013 to 2020, was a non-traditional court show starring Lauren Lake, a respected family lawyer and legal analyst. The series was a 79th & York Entertainment and Orion Television production, and received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program in 20019. Unfortunately, MGM was forced to discard all courtroom programs due to financial struggles in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and changes in ownership of the network.

With court programming being the second highest-rated genre on daytime television as of 2012, the inception of “Paternity Court” was also helped by the success of “Maury”. Nevertheless, there was a marked difference between the two shows, as “Maury” was more focused on drama and shenanigans, whereas “Paternity Court” worked towards using the test results as a way for the participants in the show to build healthy and long-lasting relationships. Ultimately, the goal of the program was to reinvigorate the court show genre by reaching the widest possible audience.

The format of each episode sees Lauren Lake speak to the show’s litigants and decide cases based on the results of DNA tests. Probate disputes over wills were also an integral part of the show; in early 2013, the show’s creator, David Armour, shared more of what happened on set – “We don’t take any of this lightly. There is a responsible side to the show where we help families get on the right path,” he shared. “We want to dig into these stories much deeper than any other court show does. We’re dealing with resolutions about how families can move forward now that they have results.”

Before and after the results, Lauren would take time to speak with her litigants. Most episodes of “Paternity Court” only focused on one case, unlike other present-day court shows which focus on two. However, it’s unclear just how involved MGM or the production team were with each family when filming wrapped up.

The doomed court series spawned two sister shows: “Personal Injury Court”, which was hosted by Gino Brogdon, and “Couples Court with the Cutlers”, which was hosted by Keith and Dana Cutler and used testing and evidence to prove – or disprove – infidelity. Sadly, all three shows were cancelled after ending production due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Saddest Moments

“Paternity Court” regaled its viewers with truly heart-breaking moments over the years, such as the episode in which Donna Andrews asked for a paternity test to prove that the man who had raised her was her biological father. Donna, who had gone out to dine with some friends in Atlanta one fateful evening, was shocked when a man approached her out of the blue and showed her a tattoo of her name on his leg. Obviously, this caused her to doubt everything about her childhood and the man she believed to be her biological father.

William Glenn, who claimed to be Donna’s biological father, said that he’d kept it a secret for thirty years because Donna had been raised in a loving household and he didn’t want to turn her life upside-down. Roger Andrews, the man who raised Donna, was deceased, as well as Donna’s biological mother. The plot thickens, as it turns out that Donna was aware of William’s existence due to him being the father of one of her younger sisters.

Although Roger and Donna didn’t actually live together, perhaps due to him being separated from Donna’s mother, he did everything a supportive father does, and was even present during Donna’s high school graduation ceremony. When Roger passed away on the due date of Donna’s second child, she was understandably traumatized; when she was approached by William at the restaurant that fateful night, she was still mourning Roger’s death, but made it clear that she wasn’t looking for a replacement by taking the case to “Paternity Court”.

Telling his side of the story, William shared that he and Donna’s mother began dating in 1976 and that Donna was born when William “left” for eight months. When William asked Donna’s mother about her pregnancy, she didn’t give him any clear answers or indicate that he could be the biological father.

Before the restaurant incident, other odd things happened to Donna that made her doubt Roger being her real father. While on a plane, she was somehow seated next to someone who claimed to know who her biological father was. When this person gave Donna a description, she was confused because it didn’t match Roger at all. Then, a few months after Roger died, one of Donna’s cousins confessed that she wasn’t really his daughter.

“You waited until my mother passed away. We don’t have nobody’s word but your word now,” Donna reproached William. When the DNA results revealed that William was indeed Donna’s biological father, she was blown away, and broke down in tears. Donna, who had brought a framed picture of Roger with her to the courtroom, also showed William the photo and doubled down on her stance: she considered Roger her father, not him.

The next case we’ll be discussing is equally depressing. Siblings Hector Hunt and Precious Raysor decided to sue their parents for a paternity test after a huge argument in which it was revealed that the man that they believed to be their father, Richard Jacobs, wasn’t after all. Despite being the only father figure in the siblings’ life, Richard allegedly revealed that the siblings weren’t his biological children while arguing with his wife. However, Richard claimed that he only said that in the heat of the moment, due to a hurtful comment his wife, Daisy Hammonds, had made.

“This is the only man I’ve known for all my life,” an emotional Precious berated her mother. “He’s been there for my kindergarten graduation, my sixth-grade graduation, how many men do you know sit in the delivery room with their daughter while they’re having a baby?” When Precious’s mother confessed that she didn’t really know who their father was, Precious exploded, as she had planned on Richard walking her down the aisle at her wedding, which would take place a few months after the episode.

As it happens, for years there had been rumors in the neighborhood of a man named Tommy Farmer being Precious and Hector’s biological father. When Tommy was shown on the screen for a videocall, Precious was so incredulous that she walked out of the courtroom. Daisy confessed to having had a sexual relationship with Tommy around the time of her pregnancy with Precious, and refused to look her children in the eye, which made her appear guilty.

When it was revealed that Richard wasn’t Precious or Hector’s biological father, he and the siblings broke down in court. Tearful hugs were shared between the three and Daisy also appeared visibly devastated. The episode ended on an even worse note, when Daisy shared that she wasn’t Hector’s biological mother, but rather a woman that had died shortly after childbirth was.

For the first 33 years of her life, Jazmine St. James was a daddy’s girl and was even walked down the aisle by the man she believed to be her father, Kenneth Esaw. However, six months before appearing in the show, Kenneth revealed during an argument that she wasn’t his biological daughter. Stunned, Jazmine and her brother opened a paternity case to get the answers they needed.

Kenneth always believed that he wasn’t Jazmine’s biological father but never found the right moment to tell her the truth. Apparently, he agreed to take a paternity test so that the truth could set him free, as the secret had been haunting him for over three decades. The argument between Jazmine and Kenneth started when Jazmine confronted her father as to why he wasn’t more present in his grandchildren’s lives.

After discovering the truth, Jazmine began suffering from depression and anxiety. “I feel like I’m going to die of heartbreak,” she confessed tearfully, sharing that she hadn’t been eating or sleeping since Kenneth dropped the bombshell.

Kenneth then shared that, shortly after getting into a relationship with Jazmine’s mother, they learned she was pregnant. However, when they went to the doctor, they realized that he couldn’t be the father because she was too far along. Kenneth’s mother was also present in the courtroom and corroborated his version of events.

When the DNA results proved that Kenneth wasn’t Jazmine’s biological father, he looked somewhat relieved, whereas she looked completely heartbroken. Even so, she thanked Kenneth for raising her as his daughter.

We can all agree that, although “Paternity Court” was never picked up by another network following its cancellation, Lauren Lake and the production team did a great job at sharing these people’s stories, and helping some families find the closure they needed to move on in their lives.

Michael Ilesanmi’s Toxic Relationship With Angela Deem

Published

on

Michael Ilesanmi

Viewers of the “90 Day Fiancé” franchise are more than familiar with Michael Ilesanmi, who has been in a turbulent relationship with wife Angela Deem since 2018. Michael became a fan favorite in the second season of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” due to Angela being such a controversial character in the show; the blonde, who is in her late 50s, doesn’t let Michael work or have social media accounts and has made it clear on many occasions that she doesn’t trust him.

With that said, Michael hasn’t done much to build that trust either. Things were going well at the beginning of the relationship, when the couple connected on social media in 2018 – so well, in fact, that Angela soon flew out to Michael’s home country of Nigeria to visit him. The glaring age gap and cultural differences between the two soon became evident. At the time, Angela was 52 years old and already had grandchildren, whereas Michael was two decades younger.

Angela’s daughter and friends began voicing their concerns, and when the interracial couple began having disagreements in Nigeria, she wondered if her younger boyfriend was secretly embarrassed to be seen with her. At the beginning of the relationship, Michael also admitted that he had cheated on Angela by engaging in sexual acts with a local woman. Since then, the tenuous trust between the couple was broken.

Angela’s first trip to Nigeria ended with Michael handing her an engagement ring wrapped in an American flag. Almost as soon as she returned to the US, the TV personality accused her Nigerian lover of draining her bank account, and proceeded to scream at him over the phone, which many viewers considered verbal abuse. Angela had given Michael her debit card for him to make a $300 withdrawal, but somehow he took out three times as much – allegedly by mistake.

In the third season of “Before the 90 Days”, the duo was reunited and waiting for him to obtain his K-1 visa. After yet another onscreen argument, Michael tried to apologize to Angela for cheating on her by giving her a cake… Which Angela promptly threw at his face. The relationship became even more chaotic when the couple discovered that there were little to no chances of Angela getting pregnant; when she asked her daughter, Skyla, to act as a surrogate, Skyla was outraged and refused.

Unfortunately for Michael, his visa was denied, which Angela discovered when she returned to the US during the seventh season of “90 Day Fiancé”. Even so, the couple tried to put aside their cultural differences and work on their trust issues, before celebrating their grandiose Nigerian wedding in season five of “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?”.

Days after the nuptials, which took place at the beginning of 2020, Angela had to unexpectedly return home due to the death of her ailing mother. The newlyweds were put to the test yet again when coronavirus-related travel restrictions were implemented before Angela could fly back to Nigeria, with both parties struggling to keep the flame alive.

While Angela waited for Michael’s spousal visa to come through, she put her baby search on the backburner and began dieting and exercising instead. However, her husband was vehemently against the idea of Angela slimming down or having a breast reduction. When Angela flirted with the doctor responsible for her weight loss surgery, Michael – who, by now, had become a minor celebrity thanks to his affable personality and hilarious on-screen moments – felt hurt and insecure. All this helped Angela become the villain of the relationship, despite Michael having cheated on her.

While healing from her surgeries, Angela tried to remotely track Michael’s activity and location via his phone, after he’d stopped communicating with her. This led to another explosive row that left the couple on the verge of a split; nevertheless, they gave things another go at the request of Tracey, Angela’s psychic.

In an attempt to win Michael back, Angela went under the knife for new breast implants, as her chest was his favorite feature of hers. During the season six Tell-All episode of “Happily Ever After?”, Angela began arguing with Michael’s aunt, Lydia, when the latter judged her for undergoing weight loss surgery instead of trying for a baby. Angela was so incandescent with rage that she flashed her breasts at the cameras; she also argued with Michael for taking his aunt’s side during the heated verbal argument.

The on-screen spat spiraled out of control and ended with Angela announcing that she would be acting single and flaunting her new, slimmer body until Michael could come to the US. During her “90 Day Fiancé” spin-off, the American met up with a former love interest, and was also seen destroying Michael’s car during a visit to Nigeria, which caused him to break up from her.

As things between Angela and Michael are so volatile, we just don’t know if the couple have broken up for good, or are planning to get back together. However, we can tell you more about Angela’s former flame, a handsome Canadian named Billy Sotiropoulos who also happens to be one of her close friends. Angela flew over to Canada to support Billy at his fundraising event, and was warmly welcomed when she touched down in Toronto.

Not everyone was pleased with Angela visiting Billy, with many followers of the couple reminding her that she would go crazy if Michael did the same. Anyone who keeps up with Angela and Michael’s exhausting marriage knows that the blonde has forbidden him from having female friends; meanwhile, she has no intentions of toning down her controversial online content, such as her provocative dancing videos.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CnxCzjSSA2V/

In any case, it appears that Michael is now in the States after finally getting his green card. There have been rumors of Michael planning to leave Angela to be with his anonymous 30-year-old American girlfriend, with whom he allegedly cheated on his wife. These rumors have led to people thinking that Michael was only playing a waiting game with Angela, until he could obtain American citizenship. Nevertheless, only time will tell if the warring couple make things work or go their separate ways for good.

Jacob Roloff: The Rebel Roloff Who Left Reality TV Behind

Published

on

About Jacob Roloff

As one of Matt and Amy Roloff’s four children, Jacob Roloff made something of a name for himself in the reality TV world, thanks to the family’s series, “Little People, Big World”. Since the show’s 2006 premiere, the Roloff clan have become household names, and fans were surprised to see Jacob walk away from it all.

Jacob was raised alongside his siblings Zach, Jeremy and Molly in the Oregon-based Roloff Farms, which Matt and Amy purchased in happier times at the beginning of their marriage. The farm, which originally boasted 36 acres and many luxurious features which Matt implemented throughout the years, held many happy memories for the second-generation Roloffs. Sadly, it would later become a sore point when Matt boldly decided to put part of it on the market, after being encouraged to do so by his new girlfriend.

Nevertheless, Jacob stopped living with his family many years before Matt tried to sell part of the property – many fans of the show wondered why the elusive Roloff had suddenly stepped away from the limelight. Although the show mainly focuses on Matt, Amy and Zach, as the only three members of the Roloff family who are little people, it appears that Jacob has never been interested in the entertainment industry, and prefers to keep a low profile.

Advertisement

The truth behind Jacob’s decision was revealed in late 2020, when the former reality TV personality shared his sexual abuse testimony on social media. Just 23 years old at the time, Jacob had walked away from the show a year prior, much to viewers’ dismay. His thousands of Instagram followers were horrified to read about the alleged abuse Jacob suffered at the hands of Chris Cardamone, who worked on the show from 2007 to 2010.

“It is often much easier to think about things than it is to talk about them. As a child, after what I realize now was a long grooming process, I was molested by an executive field producer of ‘Little People, Big World’, Chris Cardamone,” Jacob wrote. At the time of sharing his harrowing story, Jacob was bombarded by news outlets who wanted him to give a tell-all interview, but he turned down all such requests.

Nevertheless, Jacob’s Instagram post resulted in an immediate backlash against Chris, especially when the youngest Roloff shared that the executive field producer had been in touch with him in late 2015. PEOPLE magazine and other publications all tried and failed to extract a statement from Chris, but even more questions were raised when journalists began digging into his murky past.

Two months after Jacob shared his side of the story, The Sun explosively revealed that Chris had been arrested in October 2008 for child sex crimes. A Public Information Officer working at the Santa Clara Sherriff’s Office confirmed that Chris had been arrested and booked into jail, for the heinous offence of felony lewd and lascivious acts with a minor.

Ultimately, Chris was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 with force, two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14, and one count of cruelty to child with possible injury or death. Sadly perhaps, he accepted a plea deal in December 2010 and served just 73 days in jail and four years of supervised probation. Some of the conditions of his probation included submitting to chemical testing, completing substance abuse counseling, and submitting to a property/person search.

Obviously, Jacob’s parents and siblings showed their support in the aftermath of the scandal, but for some netizens, that just wasn’t good enough. Viewers of “Little People, Big World” demanded to know why TLC and the production company allowed Chris to keep working on the show after being arrested for sex crimes, whereas others suspect that Matt and Amy knew what was going on but looked the other way so that their show wouldn’t get cancelled. However, Jacob has made clear that he doesn’t blame any of his family members for what he suffered.

https://www.instagram.com/p/ClwnFkSS5fX/

These days, Jacob has over 360,000 Instagram followers and is focusing on being the best father possible to his son, Mateo. Jacob is also a fur parent to his beloved pet dog Luna, and frequently shares snaps of his tight-knit family unit on social media. Sadly, some of Jacob’s followers have been turned off by his parenting decisions, such as teaching Mateo sign language, but not showing his face on social media.

Nevertheless, Jacob’s day-one supporters aren’t going anywhere. “Am so so so stoked you broke away from the ‘image’ and shadow of your family and reality tv BS dynamics… you are one cool, intelligent, INTROSPECTIVE and insightful dude. THANK YOU”, one Instagram user commented under a recent post.

It’s true that Jacob can express himself more freely now that he’s not under any contractual obligations. Since leaving the show, he’s started working on his own greenhouse and growing marijuana – which is legal in the state of Oregon – sharing every step of the process with his fans.

As for Jacob’s siblings, Zach is the only one who remains on “Little People, Big World”. It makes sense, as the other Roloff siblings didn’t inherit dwarfism, and the show focuses on how little people such as Zach and his parents cope with everyday tasks and struggles.

Zach has been married since 2015 and has three children, all of whom were born with dwarfism. His wife, Tori, is a former kindergarten teacher and keen amateur photographer of average height. Unfortunately, Zach and Tori have been lambasted for choosing to keep having children despite Zach’s condition.

Jeremy, Zach’s twin brother, has his hands full between parenthood, marriage, and the number of projects he and his wife Audrey have on their plates at any given time. The handsome reality TV star, who studied at Brooks Institute of Photography and has a Bachelor of Arts degree, has two children named Ember Jean and Bode James.

Audrey and Jeremy are trying to make names for themselves in the creative industry, and have done so with a number of ambitious ventures such as co-authored books, their own podcast, and several small businesses.

Meanwhile Molly Roloff, Matt and Amy’s only daughter, is even more reclusive than her brother Jacob. Molly walked away from the show years ago for unspecified reasons, but is believed to be on good terms with the rest of the family. Jacob and Molly have openly supported each other throughout the years, especially in the wake of Jacob’s confession regarding the sexual abuse he suffered.
