My 600-Lb Life:
Where Are
The Assanti
Brothers Now?
Back in 2017 when Justin and Steven Assanti’s episode of “My 600-lb Life” aired, the brothers were known for generating a lot of drama and tension. Justin, the calmer of the two, weighed around 600 pounds while Steven, who weighed nearly 800 pounds, was incredibly difficult and would often throw tantrums and cause a ton of chaos on the show.
Since the premiere of his episode, Steven married a woman named Stephanie in 2018, but they have since separated. Steven stated that he and his wife are just on a break while they work things out and that he has maintained the same weight since his gastric bypass surgery.
Justin Assanti has also been doing nicely since their episode aired and uses his successful store, Hobby Haven as a great way to deal with his social anxiety. Justin has lost another 200 pounds since his appearance, but his relationship with Steven is nonexistent.
Steven has claimed TLC “overdramatized” his personality stating "They only show me going crazy, and yelling at people, and taking pain pills, and just all the bad stuff," he said. "They filmed me and my family doing good things too, but they choose to show just the bad things." However, Justin refutes this claim stating, "Steven on the show is Steven in real life," Justin said. "It's one of the few things not scripted."
