TLC is airing an enhanced 2-hour episode of its My 600-lb Life Supersized episode featuring the troubled brothers Steven and Justin Assanti. Together they weighed nearly 1400 pounds. Prior to My 600-lb Life, Steven appeared on Dr. Phil and was called “lazy, manipulative and fundamentally dishonest,” by the host Dr. Phil. Stephen developed a following on social media (more than 26,000 followers on Facebook) by posting videos of himself, usually shirtless dancing and singing.
One day before the My 600-lb Life enhanced episode airs (Thursday, January 4), Steven has updated his Facebook account with what appears to be a recent photo (see below). His face is thinner and he’s shaved his face. Think Dr. Now is proud of Steven, now? Or still enraged with his behavior? My 600-lb Life airs Thursdays at 8pm on TLC.
