Little People fans slam Audrey Roloff as ‘delusional’ for promoting ‘expensive’ fitness gear amid financial struggles
LITTLE People, Big World star Audrey Roloff has been slammed by fans for promoting an expensive piece of gym equipment.
Audrey, 31, took to her Instagram Story on Friday and shared a picture of herself working out at home.
The mom of three was wearing a black vest and had her red hair pulled up into a messy side bun as she leaned on her Terra-Core.
Audrey wrote alongside the candid photo: “Been loving this @terracorefitness. I’ve had it for a few months and can attest to it being awesome for core strengthing post babies! (sic).”
The Terra-Core is described as being “a balance trainer that doubles as a fully functional bench”, and is priced at $279 on their official website.
Audrey’s next post was a brief video of her using the equipment as her young kids kept themselves entertained in the background.
She captioned the video: “I have a code for you if you wanna get a @terracorefitness for 30% off you can use code AUDREY30 this link should auto apply the discount!” alongside the link.
Sharing a screenshot of her Instagram Story on Reddit, one person wrote sarcastically: “Does anyone have one of these if not Audrey is selling it for the low price of $279.00.”
Others quickly commented on the thread as one said: “a bit delusional to be selling to her audience.”
Another person claimed: “You can do those same exercises on a much cheaper equipment,” and a third replied: “100% Planks and push-ups you just need a floor.”

Half defending Audrey, someone else pointed out: “She’s not actually selling it, she’s promoting it.”
NO MONEY, MORE PROBLEMS
The backlash comes after Audrey recently confessed that she and her husband Jeremy can’t afford to remodel their 1970s farmhouse.
During an Instagram Q&A session, she was asked if she plans on removing the diagonal paneling in the living room.
Audrey replied: “So many things in our house are [crazy emoji]. It’s straight out of the 70s so everything is really dated and honestly, a lot of things don’t work or are old and beat up… it needs a lot of fixing.”
The LPBW star told fans that she’s made “no money” from her many business ventures over the years.
In December 2022, she also admitted to having financial struggles, especially when it comes to the businesses she and Jeremy have started over the years.
Audrey explained: “Some of our [businesses] have made zero money, some have been extremely profitable, and others have actually cost us. Along the way, we’ve quit/stopped a lot of things in order to start or give more attention to others.”
The transition into their million-dollar farmhouse has come with a lot more challenges than the couple anticipated.
They paid an estimated $1.5million for the Oregon home, but Audrey and Jeremy have already spent a whopping $700,000 in renovations, The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed.
According to the Washington County Assessor’s Office, exactly $694,570 worth of improvements has been made to the property as of December.
The family has already dealt with broken appliances, a rat infestation, and a loss of power and electricity.
The 4,414-square-foot home features four bedrooms and four bathrooms. On top of that, it sits on four acres of farmland.
