In the clip, Jeremy – sporting a white t-shirt, glasses, and a hat – didn’t hold back when answering fans’ burning questions.
In one, a follower asked the reality star if he earns royalty money from his time on the show.
The father of three honestly replied: “Negative, but that would be so awesome to get royalties. Never got royalties, never will.
“And we quit the show five years ago, so I think our last paycheck from that was – six years ago, it was six years ago now,” he corrected himself after Audrey, 31, chimed in in the background.
Jeremy, 32, bowed out of the series in 2018 after appearing in 17 seasons, beginning when he was 13 years old.
He shared the news on social media: “After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come. A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last.
“It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride. We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you. You are what made doing this so fun.
“We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!”
The show documented the unique lives of Jeremy and his siblings, who were raised by little people parents, Matt, 61, and Amy Roloff, 60.
Jeremy’s twin brother, Zach, 32, is also a little person, though their sister Molly, 29, and brother Jacob, 26, are average-sized.
Molly and Jacob also opted to leave the series several years back, but cameras have continued rolling despite rumors of the show’s cancellation.
The show now focuses on Zach and his wife, Tori, 31, raising their three little people children and the family dynamic since Matt and Amy divorced in 2016 and are in other relationships.
The latest storyline has been about patriarch Matt’s decision to sell the famed Roloff Farm after turning down offers from both Zach and Jeremy.
The move created a divide within the family, leading to Zach moving with his family to their $1million Battleground, Washington home.
Jeremy reacted by purchasing his own $1.5million farm, just a stone’s throw away from his family’s property in Oregon.
However, Jeremy and Audrey recently admitted that they have been struggling with the upkeep of their property since purchasing it in May 2022.
Audrey has referred to the home as a “fixer-upper,” as she and Jeremy are working on renovating the house that she claims has “99 problems.”
She previously posted: “When you buy a fixer-upper on some land with three young children it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the ‘to-dos.’”
The former Little People, Big World star wrote on Instagram: “After a two-year search spanning all over the state of Oregon… IT. IS. TIME. We bought a farm!…
“We’ve got a lot of work to do to bring our vision to life, but Jer and I are excited to finally have some space to get our feet dirty (literally) and bring our dreams of using land into reality.”
The pair have reportedly spent nearly $700K in renovations, but she admitted in January that they couldn’t afford to continue with the remodel.
‘TRIAL AND ERROR’
Audrey shared during an Instagram Q&A: “So many things in our house are [crazy emoji]. It’s straight out of the 70’s so everything is really dated and honestly a lot of things don’t work or are old and beat up…. it needs a lot of fixing.
“But given the state of the economy and our season of life we didn’t wanna rush into a crazy remodel.”
She continued: “And we wanted to live in the house first before making any big decisions.
“There is so much potential and we have a lot of fun ideas but we’re not sure on the when/how yet,” Audrey admitted.
In November, Audrey confessed that she and her husband have endured several failed business ventures, saying: “We’ve always loved entrepreneurship and honing in new skills through lots of trial and error.”
She also admitted her financial struggles through it all.
The couple lives in the home with their three children: Ember, five; Bode, two; and Radley, one.
