Heaviest Person Ever
- Year Set: 1978
- Who Set It: Jon Brower Minnoch
- Nationality: United States of America
While it might seem dumb, people are so set on breaking world records that they will even try to land on one that could cause them to die young. While the Guinness World Records people have removed the “heaviest person” category to prevent people from ever attempting it today, the last man Guinness documented as the heaviest was Jon Brower Minnoch. He managed to reach 1,400lbs. Thankfully, he went into treatment for his weight and lost over 400lbs. But he fell off track and sadly died young in 1983. Others have been close to his record but no one has reached it. We hope no one ever tries.
