Fans of Little People, Big World have watched Zach Roloff appear on the show since he was a young child. These days, however, he's married with three children. Naturally, viewers have been curious how Zach and Tori make a living aside from their TLC paychecks. Let's take a closer look at what Zach does for a living.
What does Zach Roloff do for a living?
The father of three previously helped his father Matt Roloff on Roloff Farms by providing guided tours of the property, among other responsibilities — but he's since stopped lending a hand. That's because Zach and Tori moved to Battle Ground, Wash., back in October 2021, following failed negotiations between Zach and Matt over the price of the farmhouse and surrounding acreage.
Previously Zach coached for competitive youth soccer teams in Oregon. It's unclear whether he has continued to coach in Washington (or whether it was even a paying position,) but
"My most rewarding experience has been seeing all the kids that come back every year at tryouts," he told retailer Lock Laces in a 2017 interview. "I love seeing the kids come back that I had the previous year, and it feels great that they want to come back and be a part of the same team and have me as a coach again."
In 2018, Zach competed with Team USA in the first ever Copa America Dwarf World Cup and helped America defeat Great Britain in the 2013 World Dwarf Games soccer finals.
Over the last few years, Zach has also hosted soccer fundraisers to build awareness for dwarf athletics. "The game has shaped who I am in tons of ways," he shared. "Everything comes back to soccer. It taught me a lot about teamwork and sacrifice … A lot of my life philosophies can be traced back to soccer."
What does Tori Roloff do for a living?
As for Tori, she previously worked as a kindergarten teacher before giving birth to the couple’s son, Jackson, in 2017. Now, she runs her own photography business, which fans can follow on Instagram. It looks like the reality star specializes in family portraits.
Additionally, Tori shares sponsored posts via social media.
The pair are also devoted parents to their three children, who all have achondroplasia dwarfism like their dad. "You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two," Zach said after his first child Jackson’s birth. "But I knew, dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it."
What is Zach Roloff’s net worth?
According to celebritynetworth.com, Zach’s net worth is $700,000. As for his LPBW salary, Business Insider estimated that "B" players on cable reality shows generally make between $15,000 and $35,000 per season. Other sources have reported that Zach could make as much as $7,000 per episode.
The longtime TV personality previously stated that he’s just happy to be making an impact. "We have a lot of fans that have gone through serious challenges, too. I think watching our show gives them inspiration by reassuring them that others have to tackle these challenges throughout life," he told Lock Laces.
"They see us on TV and they realize that their families are going through the same or similar struggles that we are. And not just situations related to dwarfism."
Watch Zach and Tori on Season 24 of Little People, Big World. New episodes air at 9 p.m. EST on TLC and on the Discovery Plus app.
