I guess the show pays all the expenses for these patients. The cost must be astronomical. Not counting the surgery, there's transportation, whether it's gas for their personal cars, ambulances, etc., weeks or months in the hospital BEFORE surgery, to try to get them to the weight they need to even have the surgery. Plus, they don't seem to have income from working. They must be on some kind of assistance. I don't see how they can afford to do this. I guess if I paused through the credits, it would say something about that.
Most of the patients are ready, willing and mostly able to go through this process. I'm cheering for them all the way. What makes me angry is when some of them are petulant, spoiled and uncooperative. They usually come around near the end of the episode, but boy, it's hard to have sympathy for some of these people. This show really makes you think about your food choices, both quality and quantity.
