Dr. Phil’s most captivating guests from the past year have had viewers on the edge of their seats. While some guests’ lives hung in the balance, others had the audience shaking their head in disbelief. Below are some of Dr. Phil’s most compelling guests from 2016.
Todd Herzog, winner of Survivor: China, hit rock bottom in 2013 when he disclosed he was drinking a half gallon of vodka every day and his blood alcohol levels were so high doctors said he should have died. Todd has had multiple failed attempts at sobriety – and was recently fighting for his life again. WATCH his most-recent appearance on Dr. Phil.
Thom, an admitted polyganist, “spiritually” wed and was expecting a child with 19-year-old Reba – with the blessing of his 44-year-old wife, Belinda. The 61-year-old convict-turned-pastor told Dr. Phil, “I believe polygamy benefits my wives.” WATCH Thom and his wives tell their story.
Identical 16-year-old twins Taylor and Tricia both said they were on death’s door due to their deadly “identical” eating disorders. The twins said to stay as thin as possible, they did everything identically the same, including counting the 12 crackers they allowed themselves to eat. They said their need to look identical fueled their disease because neither wanted to be known as the “fatter twin.” WATCH as they shared details of their eating disorder, and what a day in their life was like.
