“My Giant Life” returns for season 2 tonight on TLC and we have two new ladies to follow, both of whom stand at least six feet eight inches tall. Last season’s four cast members return, a year old and much wiser. Transitions in their lives have brought new situations to deal with, made more difficult because of their height.
If you are unfamiliar with the show, get ready to follow the stories of six women who stand above the crowd, and are seemingly too tall for the average-sized world. “My Giant Life” chronicles the challenges these women face, ranging from performing seemingly everyday tasks to being noticed for their extraordinary height. There is a heavy emphasis on their dating lives, which you can imagine might be difficult. Get a sample of the season in the video preview clip posted below.
