TLC Finds Latest Reality Star In “The Man With The 132-Pound Scrotum”

man-with-the-132-lb-scrotumIn what may be their most ballsy move yet, cable television network TLC announced yesterday that they will air a one-hour special chronicling the life and times of a man with a scrotum the size of your entire body.

We’re not exaggerating, either. Forty-nine-year-old Las Vegas resident Wesley Warren suffers from a rare medical condition called “scrotal lymphedema,” which has caused his scrotum to grow to a whopping 132 pounds since 2008. And thus, TLC has dubbed his special “The Man With the 132-Pound Scrotum”.

The show will reportedly follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people…like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.” Forgotten from the list is “putting on a hooded sweatshirt,” because he is clearly wearing it on the wrong half of his body in this photo.

(Just kidding. Wes wears a sweatshirt on his lower body so he can cover that pesky scrotum, and even though you’re staring at all 132 pounds of it, TLC has chosen to censor that ever-so-tiny portion at the bottom.)

The show will also detail Warren’s attempts to “find appropriate medical care and raise money for the surgery he desperately needs,” while most likely encouraging Twitter users to whip out their best jokes about “hangin around,” “getting sacked,” and “ballin’” when the special premieres on Monday, August 19.

According to reports, Warren’s 132-pound scrotum was removed by doctors earlier this year. Will you still watch?

    No, I won’t watch. It’s exploitative, but I suppose it helped him pay for the surgery. Too bad we don’t have real medical care in this country for people.

  • Horse Lips

    A new low has been reached.

    I do not know who was the writer of this article but this sarcastic attitude is completely unnecessary. The poor man must be the target of constant teasing on the street, you should not and could not be publicly humiliating him this way. If you’re reading this, shame on you.

  • Sweet Boy

    It’s very ballsy of him to be on TV

  • Mr. E. Jones

    The channel that once hosted Natalie Dupree, has successfully transformed itself into the freak channel. Not all change is good.

  • s312g

    Well, if this is anything like South Park, all he has to do is bounce around to transport himself.

  • B Damion

    This is a really sad sad story. I hope he is recovering well. I wish him the best.

  • Deepdow

    Of course I won’t watch it. Thanks for another useless article to Queerty.

    This story is originally from “The AV Club,” and offshoot of “The Onion.” Not a serious story. Come on, people…

    TLC …USE to be the learning channel…you folks are low….

  • crazycorgi

    Damn, and I thought mine swelled up after a slow weekend. . . They need to hook this guy up to a milking machine and drain those puppies!!! :)

  • Polaro

    Um, why wouldn’t you get the surgery when they hit 3 pounds? Kinda crazy.

  • hf2hvit

    @Horse Lips: Yeah…down to the floor!

  • tazz602

    OK – that documentary has been around for a few years, I’ve already seen it on another channel. They never said they were filming a new one. This is a non-story.

  • MikeE

    You see? THIS is what happens when you drop too many smartphones down your pants.
    Cautionary tale for Justin Bieber.

    @madtown52761: This is absolutely not a false story. The A.V. Club is an offshoot of The Onion, but it does not report fake news. The sarcastic tone you mention is a trademark of the site, but it is not a parody in the way Onion stories are. I know this as I used to write daily for one of the local offshoots of the main site.
