Why Amy & Tammy's Fans Hope The Show Gets Canceled

Amy and Tammy Slaton are struggling to lose weight in 1000-lb Sisters. Fans think the Slatons would benefit from 1000-lb Sisters getting canceled.

Amy and Tammy Slaton have created captivating television while starring in 1000-lb Sisters, but the siblings’ followers are petitioning for the reality series to be canceled before season 4. Even though 1000-lb Sisters’ audience is invested in the Slaton family members’ ongoing weight loss journeys, viewers don’t think Amy, Tammy, and their siblings have the best chance of achieving their goals while working as TV personalities. From the unhealthy attention Tammy’s garnered from the series to TLC exploiting the Slaton clan’s health issues, here’s why Amy and Tammy’s fans hope 1000-lb Sisters gets canceled.


Ever since the dramatic end of 1000-lb Sisters season 3, Amy and Tammy’s followers have been desperate to know what the future holds in store for the Slaton family. After years of Amy and Tammy vowing to reclaim their health and follow through with their weight loss ambitions, the pair of siblings failed to keep up with their goals in season 3. Although Amy had lost enough weight to undergo bariatric surgery in 1000-lb Sisters season 1, the youngest Slaton sibling learned that she had plateaued in her fitness venture in season 3. Additionally, Tammy was sent to the hospital after losing her ability to breathe in the season 3 finale. After their recent weight gains, Amy and Tammy’s fans hope 1000-lb Sisters gets canceled.

Unfortunately, neither Amy nor Tammy were left in sound shape when viewers left the pair of reality stars at the end of 1000-lb Sisters season 3. Through social media, Amy and Tammy’s followers have learned that the sisters are still struggling to keep up with their weight loss goals. While Tammy is working to regain her ability to breathe and lose weight at rehab, Amy is busy preparing for the birth of her second baby. Although Tammy has teased 1000-lb Sisters season 4 starting production, fans of the Slaton family aren’t sure that another season of the siblings’ series would be ethical. Despite viewers’ interest in following Amy and Tammy’s stories after season 3’s explosive conclusion, some fans think the Slaton clan would be better off if they didn’t return to reality TV. One Reddit user confessed, “I kinda hope [1000-lb Sisters] gets cancelled.”

Even though 1000-lb Sisters season 4 would surely be one of the best seasons in the Slaton family’s series, Amy and Tammy Slaton’s fans don’t think TLC has helped the sisters succeed in their weight loss aspirations. Although the network helped the Slaton siblings get access to bariatric surgery, viewers think TLC relies on Amy and Tammy maintaining their unhealthy weights. One fan explained, “[TLC] is basically egging on [Tammy’s] death and nobody raises any real ethical concerns.” Additionally, viewers allege that starring on 1000-lb Sisters has exposed Tammy to enablers that have hampered her weight loss progress. Another commenter cited, “TLC is complicit in [Tammy’s] behaviors…she’s obviously gotten tons of attention from the BBW/SSBBW community.” Fans think Tammy’s unpopular ex-boyfriends, Jerry Sykes and Phillip Redmond, wouldn’t have been able to enable her food addiction without the exposure the Slaton sisters get from 1000-lb Sisters.

Regrettably, neither Amy nor Tammy has taken advantage of the weight loss opportunities they have earned while starring in 1000-lb Sisters. Amy and Tammy’s fans hope the show gets canceled because 1000-lb Sisters has only emboldened the siblings’ unhealthy behavior and profited off of their failure. While it’s unclear if 1000-lb Sisters season 4 is already in production, fans can only hope Amy and Tammy are prioritizing their weight loss journeys over their series’ ratings.
