Not only has he been participating in different events and fundraisers for the LGBTQ+ community, but he is also assisting Jazz in her difficult weight loss journey. (The 21-year-old reality star has been struggling with a binge-eating disorder, causing a 100-lb weight gain).

Recently, the brother-sister duo have been butting heads over Jazz's weight loss progress, with Sander telling her that she has been "lying to herself," about the reality of the situation.

As OK! previously reported, Sander told his younger sis in a recent episode of I Am Jazz that she has been "making excuses" when it comes to her eating habits and weight-loss goals.

Meanwhile, Jazz admitted that she is getting "tired" of her family "being on top of me over and over again when it comes to food," adding that she feels a "need to defend" herself against her family.

"I think I have to take the pressure off myself and stop forcing myself to diet and eat healthy and try to lose this weight because the pressure I put on myself is really negatively impacting my mental health," she explained in a confessional interview. 'Instead of losing weight for myself to feel good and healthy, I almost felt like I was doing it for other people."

Instead, Jazz insisted that she is going to stop putting so much pressure on herself and try to lose weight in a more "natural" way going forward.
