Steven Assanti Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Steven Assanti was born on the 2nd December 1981, in Providence, Rhode Island USA; he has a brother named Justin. His childhood was rather tough since the mother of the boys was an alcoholic, and would leave them early in their life, while their father was almost never around, working whole days just to provide for the family. The two boys developed a food addiction early in their teenage years, which only got worse.
My 600-lb Life
Steven couldn’t stop overeating on his own, his brother as well; Steven took the first step and appeared in the show “Dr. Phil”, talking about his obesity and all the problems he experienced until then. This was in 2007, and then in 2010 he made a videotape in which he talked about wanting to appear in “The Biggest Loser”. His media presence was eventually fruitful, and it was in 2015 that TLC approached him and asked him to try the “My 600-lb Life” program.
He and his brother joined the show, but there was no help. Steven developed an addiction to painkiller drugs, and he also didn’t follow the rules, which resulted in his eviction from the show.
Nevertheless, he managed to overcome all his problems; Dr. Nowzaradan finally performed the gastric bypass surgery, and Steven’s weight is constantly reducing. He became quite popular while on the show, and thanks to that, his net worth increased to a large degree.
