Remember this guy?
Last year, a story about 23-year old Jordan James–the man who dropped over $150,000 in plastic surgeries to look like his idol, Kim Kardashian–went viral, helping to bring attention to an already buzzing topic: the increasingly excessive cosmetic methods people were investing in to either look like their favorite celebrity, get some more junk in their trunk, or lose some of the junk in their stomach.
E! has, of course, also kept track of the now international trend, and how it’s become less and less taboo. In fact, their most successful franchise, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is centered around the lives of a family whose biggest stars have allegedly used similar methods. Last June, E! debuted a new series, Botched, which would not only highlight the culture of excessive and outrageous plastic surgery, but attempt to remedy some of its shortcomings.
On a recent episode of the show, James made an appearance and got very specific about the current state of things, which are mostly positive. He says he loves the attention he gets, and often being the most talked or gossiped about person in the room brings him immense joy. Interestingly enough, it isn’t the colossal nature, and the desire to reduce the size of his upper lip that brings him to Botched, but rather the fact that at times, some of the filler leaks out of the sides of his mouth, and he’d very much like to keep his lips as inflated as they currently are. You can watch a clip of his testimonial above.
