The stars of TLC’s Little People, Big World aren’t quite sure why people watch the docudrama that chronicles their lives. “We’re kind of confused as to why people watch it,” Matt Roloff told USA TODAY. “The fact that we’re little people may have made people tune in initially,” he said.
The paper identified his first comment by saying he “jokes,” but Amy Roloff was serious in her response, saying, “Whatever it may be, to look at the oddity of little people or for other reasons, I hope it makes others more aware of their environment and surroundings.” She also said, “But everyone has challenges to some degree. And we’ve learned to adapt and to overcome.”
The series is increasing in popularity this season. “The audience is expanding for the reality show; one of the fifth season’s two premiere episodes this month drew a series-high 3.5 million viewers,” the paper reports.
