To all the single girls out there… wait for the kind of man who wants to sit and talk with you by a campfire more than he wants to sit by you watching Netflix on a couch. Wait for a man who comes to your door when he picks you up instead of just texting, "I'm here." Wait for a man who is more dedicated to pursuing Jesus than he is to pursuing his career ambitions. Wait for a man who wants to get to know your friends and family instead of always insisting on hanging out alone. Wait for a man who you'd want to be the father of your children instead of a man who's still acting like a child. I know it may seem harsh, but I say these things to encourage you and give you hope. That kind of man is out there. Don't believe the big fat lie that tells you, "Oh I'll never find someone like that." Jeremy is not an exception. Men like this DO exist. Pray for him and wait for him. #journeyofjerandauj #beating50percent @beating50
Their dating relationship was long distance when they first met. So while Audrey Roloff knew about the cameras, her exposure was minimal while dating Jeremy. She complains about being “thrust into the limelight” and adds that she, as well as Jeremy, are not limelight people.
Audrey Roloff Limelight Woes
Audrey goes on to describe how her first real experience with camera overload was during the weeks leading up to her wedding. All the trials and tribulations that a bride goes through was filmed. From the dress fittings to tasting cake samples, the cameras were there.
Audrey Roloff said as the cameras become more and more a part of her life she had to remind herself that this is Jeremy’s lifestyle. She said, “I just had to remind myself all along like this is a part of the life of the man that I’m marrying.”

Little People, Big World Intrusive Cameras
Not only did she find the cameras intrusive, but the crew came into their home rearranging things. She describes how they jumped into action by turning all their books backward. This is so the titles weren’t seen on camera. She said their bodies were “covered with tape” to cover any logos on their clothes. These logos could not be seen on the screen as well.
“You never get used to it. It’s just a weird thing. [Jeremy and I] we aren’t made for the spotlight. People are coming into your house, turning all your books backwards and covering your body with tape because there can’t be any logos; and lights everywhere and camera crew men. It’s just very invasive.”
Jeremy Roloff Also Wants Out
This “invasive” lifestyle is not for Audrey and Jeremy feels the same way as well, she said during a recent interview. According to Cafe Mom, Audrey talking about their exit from Little People, Big World didn’t go over very well with some fans.

“Don’t let the door hit you and your Bozo the Clown hair on the way out,” was what one fan commented online. Apparently, this was in reference to Audrey’s red hair.

I love these humans so freakin much. Already missing our sandy bums, frizzy hair, sitting on the porch of Jer’s grandparents cabin, campfires on Lake Michigan, and even our cheap motel with no wi fii, cell service, or AC. There was something so simple, refreshing, and life-giving about our trip to Michigan. It will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember after we took this photo I hugged Jer and said “lock it in.” A phrase we often say to each other to help seal a moment or place in our memory. As i write this I’m having flash backs to all the other “lock it in” moments we’ve shared😭 Each one usually followed by silence and stillness, tuning into all five senses, and thanking God for the grace upon grace He so lavishly gives us. #journeyofjerandauj #ALoveLetterLife
Another fan wrote, “Thank God! She couldn’t stand the cameras… Hooray for our side… That woman is so irritating and never fit in with the show… Every time she came on the screen I fast forwarded it…”
One fan suggested that Audrey wouldn’t be such an unpopular member of the Roloff family if she just humbled herself a bit. Another comment claims that Audrey knew she wasn’t popular on the show. The comments go on to suggest that she couldn’t take the criticism. One commenter predicts that Audrey will “eventually drive Jeremy away with her self-righteous act.”
Jeremy and Audrey Called ‘Arrogant’ Couple
Jeremy didn’t escape this criticism, one fan sees him as “arrogant as she is.”This fan claims “they both act like know-it-alls.”
The couple announced their last season on the show earlier this summer. With that said, Jeremy assured the fans of Little People, Big World that they will still see them. Apparently, this Roloff couple has some projects on the drawing board. Come back to Soap Dirt for all of the latest LPBW news!
