Where is Steven Assanti Now?

January 20, 2024

In February 2023, unsubstantiated rumors spread that Steven Assanti had passed away at the age of 40. Thankfully, Justin Assanti took to social media to dispel the false reports. Justin, who tends to keep a low profile, stated that his brother was alive and well. He also noted that it is important to verify information before making any conclusions.

The Assanti brothers gained prominence on TLC’s reality show My 600-Lb Life. The siblings, who both weighed over 800 pounds at the time of their appearance on the show, did not get along with each other, and their drama was a major draw for viewers. They both struggled with addiction and acted erratic during the series.

Before appearing on My 600-Lb Life, Steven ran a YouTube channel and was a regular on local news. He then went on to become one of the most controversial cast members ever on the show, reportedly abusing painkillers and throwing tantrums while arguing with Dr. Younan Nowzaradan. Steven was a big reason why the show was so popular, and his shenanigans made for excellent television.

After his stint on the show, Steven found love and married Stephanie Sanger. The two now live in Iowa and are happy together. They aren’t the most opulent couple, but they seem to be doing alright for themselves. In addition to running a small business, the Assanti brothers enjoy their hobby of collecting model kits and vintage cars. In his free time, Steven also uploads cringe content to his YouTube page.
