Seventeen-year-old twins Zach and Jeremy were born only two seconds apart, but now they're nearly two feet apart. Of the four Roloff kids, Zach is the only little person. "It's fun," he says. "We go through the same experiences as we grow up, but we experience it different ways."

From shopping to sports, everyday activities for an average-sized teenager like Jeremy can be challenging for Zach. The twins grew up playing soccer together, but it's getting harder for Zach to keep up. "This was probably going to be one of the last times that me and my brother Zach are going to be able to play together," Jeremy says. "We're all getting older and bigger and stronger, and then he's reached his maximum height."

As the twins get older, Zach says their relationship is changing. "It's been challenging just keeping up with Jeremy because we grew up as twins, but he was always faster than me and stuff like that, so it was almost like he was the older brother," Zach says. "Now that we're older, it's not so much how fast you can go and stuff like that. It's more talking and stuff like that. It's a little more twin-ish."

Jeremy says growing up in his family has taught him an important lesson. "I think I have a better idea to see what it would be like to be a little person because I know more about them and I know a lot of what they go through and experience," Jeremy says.
