The latest season of LPBW aired on May 17 and the tensions were high.
In the trailer for the show, it was depicted that Zach made his son, Jackson, go up to his dad, Matt, and his girlfriend, Caryn, to tell them they were moving.
“You wanna tell Cha-Cha and grandpa that we’re moving to Battle Ground?” Zach asks his son.
Jackson looked worried but listened to his dad.
“You know what?” Jackson said as he walked over to them. “We…. are moving to Battle Ground.”
“You’re moving?” asked Caryn, to which Jackson replies, “Yeah.”
No one said anything for a while and everyone just stood with their arms folded.
Now, fans are bashing Zach for having his young son be involved in the feud.
Fans on Reddit were quick to bash the reality star about his decision.
” Zach has Jackson tell the moving news and like, Zach, up until now you’ve been handling this well, but this is a b***h move. On behalf of all children who got stuck handing out bad news to the family – this was a b***h move,” they captioned the thread.
“Aside from the bitch move of having Jackson announce the news, Zach and Tory behaved pretty reasonably – they made the decision it wasn’t worth it to keep trying for the farm, they realized they were never going to get it in the way they wanted, time to let it go,” the original poster continued.
Other fans chimed in and agreed with them, saying it was wrong.
“Side note: I agree using Jackson to break the news was a bad decision. That entire scene was awkward and tense. I think this along with Zach and Tori’s impulse move is more revenge on Matt than anything. They’re punishing him by taking away his grandkids, and used them to break the bad news to harden the blow. They are clearly angry and hurt. I don’t blame them though,” commented one fan.
“Even though I’m on their side, Z & T’s immaturity came though here. They had Jackson deliver the news; they assumed Matt’s non-reaction was designed to hurt them, when really he could actually be feeling neutral or be happy that they’ve pivoted and have let the farm idea go,” chimed in another.
Many others agreed that while they thought Zach and Tori’s behavior was horrible they did like the episode.
During the feud over the farm, Zach did not let Matt see his grandchildren.
He and Tori just welcomed their third child earlier this year.
“We go from seeing them almost daily to being completely cut off,” Matt claimed.
“Like, ‘you’re not going to see the kids, we’re not bringing them to the farm. You’re not going to talk to them,'” Caryn added.
“I feel sad. I feel confused,” she said
SELLING THE FARM
After Zach and Tori decided not to buy the farm, Matt decided to put it up for sale.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Matt, 60, is asking $4 million for the Oregon farmhouse where he and his ex-wife, Amy, raised their four children.
While the lot for sale is only a fraction of the total owned land, the 16 acres offer enough unique features to be considered its own theme park.
The main house spans about 5,400 square feet. But the rest of the property includes playgrounds built for his children.
Matt said he plans to build another home on the remaining land, and will continue to grow pumpkins on it.
He added he would split his time between the farm and his home in Arizona, with his girlfriend.
Along with Jackson, Tori and Zach also have a daughter Lilah, two, and a newborn baby Josiah.
It’s not clear if the farm has been sold yet.
