It seems that across the pond, people are obsessed with looking like Kim Kardashian. So obsessed that they are willing to undergo expensive plastic surgery procedures to look like the reality star. The Sun reports that Manchester resident Jordan James Parke loves Kim’s supersized overly made-up appearance so much that he has spent a small fortune, $150k to look like Mrs. West.
23-year old Jordan James Parke really likes attention. Good or bad, Jordan wants people to look at him. And look they do, whether on his ample social media updates or when he is walking down the street.
A professional makeup artist, Jordan shares his love of all things Kim, such as makeup, high-end handbags, and luxurious furs on his Instagram.
“My look is all about the shock factor,” he explained to The Sun. “I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done.”
So far, Jordan has relied on more than just makeup to transform into Kim Kardashian. He has undergone supersized lip fillers, laser hair removal, and dramatic eyebrow tattoos paired with an overload of Botox to make his face extra smooth and his lips extra large.
Jordan says that often people note that he doesn’t look natural and his response is to laugh. He explains that looking “natural” or “normal” was the furthest thing from his goal.
He told the British publication that he has no regrets about his many procedures. “I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake,” Parke said. “Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”
So far Kim hasn’t commented on Jordan’s emulation.
Jordan isn’t the first Brit to want to be more like Kim and willing to undergo plastic surgery to achieve it. Earlier this year Claire Leeson admitted to spending $30,000 on plastic surgery in an effort to more closely resemble the most famous Kardashian.
“I’ve had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced,” Claire told ITV, adding that she had pictures of Kim and “explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this.”
Claire also spends a lot of money on tanning products, hair extensions and sports padded undergarments for a fuller rear end.
While its unclear how Jordan affords his plastic surgery procedures, Claire admitted that her efforts to live like a Kardashian have taken a major toll on her finances.
“My job doesn’t pay enough,” she said. “I’m in major debt. I say that I’m going to pay them but as soon as money comes in, I just think about getting my Kimmy on.”
And before Kim caught on across the ocean, Kris Humphries’ other ex, Myla Sinanaj revealed her own plans to undergo plastic surgery to look more like Kim. And Glee actress Naya Rivera has also been noted to bare an uncanny likeness to Kim.none
