What Happened To Brandon Scott From My 600-lb Life?

When Brandon Scott appeared in season 7, he was a 33-year-old man who felt trapped in his body because he weighed 718 pounds. He lived in Columbus Ohio with his girlfriend, Tayler, who helped him with daily activities and took care of his dietary needs. Unable to do anything for herself and dependent on Tayler for everything, she felt like she was in a nightmare where her body was a prison.

Brandon Scott’s eating habits were deeply addictive and mainly stemmed from his difficult childhood. His parents fought constantly when he was young, so he sought out food to escape the feeling and find comfort. Soon he became addicted and started to gain weight. He became defensive about his size, even when this concern came from his mother.

In college, Brandon’s relationship with his father was also ruined when Brandon found out about his infidelity and they had a falling out after a heated argument. Domestic problems also forced him to give up his dream of going to Italy to become a soap opera singer.

Throughout this time, food was his constant companion and by the age of 27 he had gained over 600 kilos. When the Columbus, Ohio, resident met Tayler, his understanding and helpful nature motivated her to change her life for the better and strive with him for a better and healthier future. So they eventually travelled to Houston, Texas, and met Dr. Now for professional help. Because of lymphedema in her arms and legs, she was asked to lose 120 pounds in two months to get approval for bariatric surgery.

Brandon Scott’s weight loss journey was one of the reality show’s most successful stories. After a tiring trip to Houston and back, Brandon set his routine straight and began to follow the program diligently. He started his day early, worked out, ate limited calories and even kept a food diary to track everything he ate. Tayler showed him a lot of support and they also followed the diet together. And so, after two months, Brandon lost 141 pounds, exceeding his goal. Since he weighed 577 pounds, he qualified for surgery.

Brandon Scott then underwent gastric bypass surgery and by the end of his journey weighed 383 kilos, losing 335 kilos. He was also prescribed therapy with Lola Clay to overcome the underlying issues that were driving him to eat so much.

After the programme, Brandon Scott diligently continued his weight loss programme to get down to 200 kilos and also attended regular therapy. He continued his passion for music and started singing covers of songs on YouTube, as well as some originals. He slowly started getting gigs at events or clubs. So he decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee.

Over a year and a half later, Brandon weighed 265 pounds and was approved for surgery to remove excess skin. However, because of his musical performances in Nashville, he decided to go ahead with it and have the surgery later. In other big news, he was engaged to Tayler in the summer of 2019 and the couple finally tied the knot on October 3, 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
