Will he or won’t he?
This is the question that’s been surrounding Jacob Roloff for several weeks now, or at least the first part of it.
The full question would read as follows: Will he or won’t he return to Little People, Big World this fall?
Jacob, of course, walked away from this TLC reality show last summer, slamming both storylines and members of his own family as fake and scripted in the process.
But he’s since acknowledged that he simply needed to grow up a bit, taking responsibility for his words and actions and improving his relationship with those same family members in the process.
Over the past couple months, Jacob has been spending a lot of time at his dad’s farm in Oregon, while also sharing many photos of his nephew on Instagram.
Jacob was also an enthusiastic and helpful guest at sister Molly’s wedding in early August.
These changes have sparked speculation amidst Little People, Big World viewers who really want to see Jacob back on their favorite show.
We don’t know for certain if that will ever happen.
But we do know Jacob as a different sort of project on tap.
“I am working on book #2, which will be titled Out To See and coming soon,” he recently announced on Instagram.
The book will serve as a follow-up to “Verbing,” which Roloff released this summer for just $5 on Etsy.
At the time of said release, Jacob described this first effort as a memoir of sorts, a collection of his thoughts and beliefs after nearly a year of traveling the country with his girlfriend and dogs.
“It has been really exciting getting feedback, and immediately working to make the next one better (and longer),” Jacob said on social media.
Making a point to thank everyone who “read and bought” his first book, Jacob went on to include an excerpt from his next one.
It reads as follows:
I allowed myself to be in such a frustrated state of mind for a long time, until hitting a wall of reason knowing that there must be another way.
I retreated just a little bit further into seclusion with books, and cultivation of intellect and mind. These too, I have learned, are just tools.
Tools for finding a sense of self, love, and respect for others, and appreciation for reality – which you then realize has been there all along, waiting, whereafter you can cease cultivation and enjoy the dance of the moment.
This is clearly an introspective and profound individual.
He’s also someone who is so very much in love!
“The most thanks to this lady for helping me in every way and reading and rereading endlessly to check for errors,”Jacob wrote of his long-time girlfriend late last month, adding:
“And for her support. Izzy Sofia Rock deGarretón, I love you a lot.”
Just how much?
Based on a mysterious Instagram post Izzy shared a few days ago, perhaps to the moon and back?
We think Jacob may have asked her to marry him.
That’s just a rumor, however.
The upcoming Jacob Roloff memoir is a fact.
Did you purchase the first one? Will you purchase the next one?
