Matthew Roloff Caryn Chandler

We can’t wait for the next season of Little People, Big World to start in March 2020. The last season left off with Amy Roloff making a huge decision for herself post-divorce from Matt Roloff. While the two co-existed on Roloff Farms for years after their split, Amy took the plunge and sold her half to Matt so she could find a new place to stay.

While Amy’s moving ventures are a huge topic of conversation, so is her engagement with Chris Marek. And now, many are wondering if Matt and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, will tie the knot.

It seems engagement is on the brain for fans, as many thought Matt’s Instagram post promoting the new season of LPBW was an announcement that the two are finally prepared to wed. And Matt’s response may have given away why he hasn’t gotten down on one knee yet.

Matthew Roloff Ex-Wife

Matt and Amy met at a Little People of America convention in 1987. The couple were engaged quickly and were married on September 12, 1987. In March 2014, the couple announced that they had separated. On June 5, 2015, the couple announced they would be divorcing. Their divorce was finalized in May 2016.

Roloff recently talked about his relationship with his ex-wife, Amy Roloff, on the podcast First Class Fatherhood.
The Little People, Big World star revealed that even though it may look like they’re “always at each other’s throats,” that’s not the truth.

The newest season of Little People, Big World starts Tuesday, March 31 on TLC at 8 p.m. ET.
Things are not always what they seem on Little People Big World, according to Matt Roloff.

Ahead of the new season premiere of Little People Big World, the TLC star set the record straight on the podcast First Class Fatherhood about how the family is portrayed on the show — especially when it comes to his relationship with his ex-wife, Amy.

If you ask Matt, he thinks the show’s producers do “a lot of [time] compression.” Though the Roloffs shoot one season over eight months, there is only eight weeks’ worth of new episodes. Because of this, Matt believes it looks like he and Amy are “always at each other’s throats,” though that’s actually not the case at all.

“Let’s say Amy and I are arguing about something. We’ve been getting along for six months, and then we have another argument. Well, they throw those two arguments into one episode,” Matt explained. “Just the nature of television really puts out a different impression.”

But no matter what conclusions viewers draw about the family, Matt says that everyone has grown “thick skin” over the years.

Matthew Roloff Net Worth

Matt has an estimated net worth of $5 million dollars U.S dollars. His career as a television personality is the primary source of his income.
