How much do they have to weigh?

Have you ever watched any of those TV programs where they do like a documentary on some morbidly obese person? Like right now there's a show my television telling us about some obese people and they are going to show us what they eat in a day. I don't know if I really want to see it or not. I mean, this one guy weighs over 700 pounds!

This is terrible, what they're doing here. It's like some sort of freak show or something. I would be devastated if I were one of those people knowing that the world is going to see just how much food they consume. I'm sure they know they have a problem, and are already quite ashamed of it, and most likely extremely depressed by it. But here they are, being treated like some sort of strange animal on display for people to gasp at on their televisions! Instead of airing something like this, why don't they help them get some sort of weight loss surgery and then show the results on TV when they are healthier and happier. Don't get me wrong here. I like documentaries, and I would love to see one about how these poor people combat their problems, rather than see what's made them the way they are, and show how they aren't mobile, and tell us how many firemen had to lift them out of their homes on a board to take them to the hospital or whatever. Leave these poor people a little dignity! Geesh!
