About “My Big Fat Fabulous Life”

This reality show follows Whitney Way Thore as she navigates changes in her life. Whitney is a dancer, business owner, and body-positive icon. After gaining 200 lbs in one year, and hitting a top weight of 380 lbs, Whitney was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. PCOS is a hormonal disorder that causes significant weight gain.

Despite the major changes, Whitney chose to embrace her new body instead of choosing to hate it. So, she started pursuing her dreams in a world that body shames, offers weight loss advice, and judges others solely on their size. She is a big girl with big plans. Since then, she has shared with fans her ups, her downs, her relationships, and her inspiring personality.

Since season one, Whitney has taken adventure, made new friends, had a few suitors, and lived her best life. She has promoted body positivity, self-love, and acceptance online — including launching the #NoBodyShameCampaign. 

She continues to dance. Recently, she launched her own business with her business partner, Jessica Powell, called No BS Active. However, as success happens in one part of Whitney’s life, things begin to fall apart in others as she recently called it quits with Chase Severino.

What Happened to Whitney on “My Big Fat Fabulous Life” Season 9?

Whitney started off season nine with a bang. Not only did she move back to her home of Greensboro, North Carolina to be closer to her family, but she also moved in with long-time friend Buddy Bell. Preoccupied with his new girlfriend, Buddy doesn’t have too much time to spend with Whitney. Bummed about her friend ignoring her, she finds other ways to fill her time. 

Enter the French man. While taking online French lessons, Whitney began a flirty relationship with her tutor, a man who lives in France. Eventually this flirting developed into a full-on long-distance relationship. While keeping his identity secret to fans, Whitney and the French man go on virtual dates and end up building a relationship over the course of the season. 

Not everyone is on board with her new man. Many of Whitney’s friends worry about her sudden infatuation with the French man. They wonder if Whitney can handle another long-distance relationship so soon after her breakup with Chase. This is especially true after he stands Whitney up during a friend’s trip to Maine. However, despite low moments, canceled dates, pandemic restrictions, and personal doubts, Whitney continues her relationship.

Outside her love life, Whitney makes some big life decisions during season nine. Not only does her business take a big step forward, preparing to launch the No BS Active app, but she also has a big falling out with Ashley over her future with the business. Whitney takes a personal step forward too. Looking to the future, she chooses to freeze her eggs in the hopes of becoming a mother later down the road. What’s more, she and Todd have a terrible birthday.

Season nine ends with a cliffhanger. Whitney takes her love life into her own hands and purchases a one-way ticket to Paris. In the last episode, Whitney says goodbye to Babs and Glenn at the airport and heads off to France. She is ready to meet her French man in person and see where life takes her. 

Where Is Whitney Now?

Since the season finale of “My Big Fat Fabulous Life,” Whitney has shared news about her life on her social media. She didn’t want to leave fans hanging for too long and announced that she had spent six weeks in Paris, fallen in love, and was in a relationship with her French man. His identity is still a secret to keep away any hate from fans or any online drama.
