On tonight’s episode of My 600-Lb. Lifefans are introduced to a man named Patrick Macon from Atlanta, Georiga who weighs in at 656.9 pounds. As the episode progressed, Patrick has a really rough time following Dr. Now’s diet plan and makes it clear he was expecting to get more than “just a f*cking book and a piece of paper” from him.

My 600-Lb. Life has an unusual timeline

As fans of My 600-Lb. Life know, the TLC series has an unusual timeline line. Each episode of the show follows a cast member for 12 months as they go on a weight loss journey. For the most part, fans can go follow cast members on social media and see that they wrapped up their year of filming within a few months of their episode airing on television for the first time.

Now, both Patrick Macon and his wife Amanda have their Facebook profiles pretty locked down. But, doing a bit of poking around, Tv Shows Ace discovered something a bit unusual about this cast member.

Patrick Macon’s episode filmed years ago

Taking a good look at his profile, Tv Shows Ace has learned that Patrick’s daughter recently celebrated her 18th birthday. If fans recall, she was just 16 when the show was filmed. Doing the math, this means it was definitely two years ago when TLC started filming his episode of My 600-Lb. Life. As previously mentioned, this is a bit unusual for there to be so much of a gap in an episode being filmed and an episode airing.

What caused such a big delay?

There were rumors that swirled for a while that Dr. Now was having trouble securing insurance to help pay for the surgeries because of the lawsuits piling up against him. Tv Shows Ace actually had several cast members reach out claiming they were having issues getting in contact with production and felt like they were getting the runaround.

It is also a known fact that COVID was an issue for production. There was a period of time when the show seemingly focused on cast members in or near Texas because it was more convenient to work with cast members nearby.
