Camera Crews Not Allowed On First Date

HILLSBORO, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being a teenager is hard enough – but it can be especially challenging with a camera crew documenting one’s every move.

Or at least that’s what Matt Roloff noticed during the filming of the second season of his reality show Little People, Big World.

The show chronicles the adventures of 4-foot, 1-inch Matt; his wife, Amy, who is also a dwarf; and their four children, three of whom are normal-sized.

Roloff says the family has gotten used to the cameras although his twin sons, who are 15, don’t want the show to get in the way of their social and dating lives.

As he puts it, “It’s a constant compromise. They’ll be like, “We really don’t want them to come on this first date” and the crew will be like, ‘Okay how about the second one then?’”

Although the boys usually let the cameras tag along, they are careful about what they say because, as Roloff points out, “it is VERY hard to have any sort of private conversation.”

The second season of Little People, Big World starts Saturday (Oct. 7) on TLC.
