Whitney Thore and My Big Fat Fabulous Life have been a reality TV favorite since the show first aired on January 13, 2015. After the 37-year-old spent time in South Korea teaching English she returned home to the United States, got a job as an on-air producer, and created a video of her dancing that she called, A Fat Girl Dancing.
The video eventually went viral allowing Whitney Thore to start promoting body acceptance and a positive body image. After the video was picked up by several media outlets and less than a year after returning to the United States, TLC launched the series My Big Fat Fabulous Life which was built around Whitney Thore’s life and her struggle to lose weight.
Since then, viewers have learned valuable life lessons from the reality star, who has taken them with her on her journey to reality TV stardom.
