Survival of the Half Ton Teen

Show Summary

TLC viewers met Billy Robbins, who at 18 years old and 850 pounds is billed as the world's heaviest teen, in the first special "Half Ton Teen" in January 2009, when we followed him as he lost 200 pounds and underwent skin surgery. Now, in a follow-up special called "Survival of the Half Ton Teen," we see Billy again, this time undergoing bariatric surgery as he strives to lose more than half his body weight just to stay alive. TLC documents the risky gastric sleeve surgery, his recovery and his transformation - all while Billy comes face to face with his biggest obstacles and personal demons.
