The “male Kim Kardashian,” Jordan James Parke, is back in the news after recently appearing on an episode of E!‘s plastic surgery horror series Botched.
Apparently, Parke has spent more than $160,000 all in an effort to resemble his favorite reality TV star and fitness guru.
But the effort has come at a greater cost than the six figures he’s already laid out. Parke admits that he’s “addicted to lip filler” and that originally he wanted something that “looked very natural,” but as the treatments continued, “they kept getting bigger and bigger.”
Parke also had filler treatments in virtually every other part of his face to the point that he now admits he can barely move it.
“I can’t really move my face,” he added. “I want just a little bit of definition and they [lips] just got bigger and bigger.”
To Parke’s credit (perhaps?), he has come to embrace his new look, especially those lips.
“The bigger, the better. I’ve never felt better about myself. I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”
As for the insult part, that’s something Parke has had to get used to, noting that some people have said he has “blowj** lips,” but “I kind of love that because any attention is good attention, and it means you’re thinking about me. And I get a lot of attention from guys, and I love that, too.”
Parke said that he “has to try” every new plastic surgery procedure he hears about in order to finish his goal of looking like Kim Kardashian.
He admits that it can get expensive keeping up with the Kardashians, but says that he has managed to get discounts for being a frequent customer and that he has also worked hard and borrowed money from family to proceed with the mission.
Parke is certainly not the first unusual plastic surgery-holic to be featured here at the Inquisitr. Another recent story detailed the efforts of one Valeria Lukyanova, who has gone to great lengths to turn her body into a human Barbie doll.
Lukyanova made news today by confessing that she no longer likes her body.
“It needs more muscle,” she added.
What do you think about people like Lukyanova and Parke? Do you think there is something psychologically wrong with people who would want to look like Barbie or Kim Kardashian so badly that they would go to these lengths? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
