If you’re a big fan of TLC’s 1000-Lb. Sisters, you probably noticed there are several members of the Slaton family. The show heavily focuses on Tammy Slaton and Amy Halterman. But they aren’t the only siblings in the family.

When Season 2 launched, we also met Chris Combs, Tammy and Amy’s brother who also struggles with his weight. Now that we’re well into Season 3, we’re seeing more of Tammy and Amy’s sisters too. Misty plays a pretty big role this season, but we haven’t seen much of Amanda yet.

But fans recently pointed out online that the siblings probably aren’t actually full-blooded siblings. Many of them have different last names and have different features. So how exactly are members of the Slaton family all related?

The Slaton family has some complex dynamics

Tammy Slaton and Amy Halterman do have similar facial features, so many fans believe they are full-blooded sisters. However, they also believe that Chris is their half-brother and they share the same mother. But how exactly do Misty and Amanda fit into the mix? Reddit users took a deep dive here.

“Who is Misty?” the original commenter asks. “I’m confused. They say she’s Chris’s sister but she’s not Amy and Tammy’s sister. Is she Chris’s half sister? I think so but I’m not sure and I looked on google didn’t see anything. Also another sister Amanda? So many siblings I didn’t even know about.”

1000-Lb. Sisters fans managed to put the pieces together and come up with some answers. One fan managed to find an obituary for Darlene’s husband and provided some answers.

“From Darlene’s husband’s obit: ‘Survivors include: wife Darlene R., daughter Crystal C., son Wayne R.; 5 Step-Children: Misty W. and husband David, Christopher C. and wife Brittany, Amanda Halterman and husband Jason, Tammy Slaton, Amy Halterman and husband Michael,'” another user shared. “Chris’ last name isn’t Slaton, so Tammy & Amy probably have a different father from Amanda, Chris & Misty. Notice that Ananda & Amy share same last name. I think they’re married to brothers, that’s how Amy & Michael met.”

Do you believe this is how the siblings are all connected? Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

Chris managed to make grand strides with his weight loss goals

If you caught the most recent episode of 1000-Lb. Sisters, you saw that the doctor approved Chris Combs for weight loss surgery. This was a pretty big move since Chris tried all season long to lose enough weight. However, some fans think that won’t be enough.

Chris tries, but it’s hard for him to keep losing weight with people like Tammy Slaton in his life. Many fans think he would benefit from more professional help — like Dr. Now. They think the famous My 600-Lb. Life doctor could help him make more sustainable life choices, instead of yo-yo dieting.
