The latest person in the news for spending oodles of money to look like a female celebrity ... is a man. Jordan James Parke, a 23-year-old Brit, has spent more than $150,000 on plastic surgery and other procedures in an attempt to resemble Kim Kardashian, the New York Daily News reports, citing the Sun. He's gotten Botox, lip-filling surgery, eyebrow tattoos, and laser hair removal, and he wants a nose job next. He's also spent thousands on a Kim-inspired wardrobe and accessories, and he got a "vampire facial" after watching Kim get one on TV.

"I love everything about Kim. She's the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her," Parke says. "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. ... I welcome the hate—it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done." He posts pictures on Twitter and Instagram. (In more Kardashian news, Kanye West reportedly spent $74,000 on baby North for Christmas.)
