TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life has been exploring the life of body-positive influencer Whitney Way Thore winning people’s hearts since 2015. And one of the most important people in Whitney’s life is her brother Hunter Thore.
But who exactly is Hunter Thore? What does he do? Does he appear on My Big Fat Fabulous Life?
Meet Hunter Thore, Whitney Thore’s Brother
Hunter Thore is the younger brother of Whitney Way Thore and the son of Babs Thore and Glenn William Thore. Like Whitney, Hunter’s hometown is also Greensboro, North Carolina but he currently lives in New York.
Hunter is not a regular part of My Big Fat Fabulous Life (because he lives in New York) but because he is such an important part of Whitney’s life, he does appear from time to time. The most recent appearance has to do with their parents.
Babs Thore and Glenn Thore live with Whitney and they are more regular on the show. Both of them are more than 70 years of age and both of them had fallen down the stairs of the house. Most recently, it was Babs who had fallen which had made Whitney concerned about her parents’ health and well-being.
So, Whitney had the idea of moving her parents to a bedroom on the ground floor, and for that, she had sought the help of Hunter. However, when Hunter came to live with them for a while, he completely changed his stance and asserted that their parents should have their choice.
That led to a little disagreement between Hunter and Whitney. However, other than such usual sibling altercations, Hunter and Whitney have a very loving relationship. They post long loving odes to each other on their birthdays and on occasions of their parents’ anniversary (7 August).
