Zach Roloff has been a star of TLC's Little People, Big World since it first debuted in 2005. With 21 seasons under his belt, the 30-year-old has amassed a net worth of $300,000, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com.

Since Zach was 14 years old, he's been earning a profit from his role on his family's TLC show. It's safe to assume that since Jeremy, Molly, and Jacob are no longer on the show, Zach and Tori are receiving a bigger cut of the paycheck. While their exact earnings per episode are unknown, reality TV producer Terrence Michael told E! that reality-show families earn about 10% of each episode's budget. So say it costs $250,000 to film an episode, the family earns $25,000. Once split with the other family members, Zach and Tori earn a few thousand dollars each.

Between filming for the show and helping on Roloff Farms, Zach doesn't have too much time for another job, which is why his income mainly comes from the show and helping out on his parent's farm. Besides doing some odd jobs on the farm, Zach is also one of the tour guides for the farm's Golden Pass Private Tours, which cost $300 per ticket.

When he's not helping with pumpkin season, Zach is a soccer coach for three competitive soccer teams in Oregon. For fun, he plays on a soccer team that recently placed fourth at the Copa America Dwarf World Cup in Argentina. It's unknown whether he earns money from playing or coaching soccer. Tori, on the other hand, left her job as kindergarten teacher before giving birth to Jackson.

So, does this mean he might take up another part-time job? Or possibly write a book like Jeremy? We'll have to watch the new season!
