JT Clark made a memorable appearance on Season 8, Episode 4 of “My 600-lb Life,” which aired on January 22, 2020. At nearly 900 pounds, JT was one of the heaviest patients Dr. Now had ever treated.

When viewers first met JT Clark, he lived in a modest house in Oklahoma with his dog and girlfriend, Jessica. At 32 years old, JT hadn’t worked since he hit 700 pounds at the age of 25 because he couldn’t stand upright. Jessica supported the household and made sure JT was well-fed, as he candidly admitted his obsession and addiction to food.
