Justin Jedlica's nickname has become his trademark.
However, the 35-year-old can't and won't take credit for being known as the Human Ken Doll. "That was something that came out in the 20/20 interview. They said it in passing. It was cute. It was catchy," he said on Ice & Coco Thursday. "At the time there was a Human Barbie doll figure out there. Everybody just pieced one with the other. It wasn't really in my thought process initially to look like a doll."
"People like to call Coco Barbie," Ice-T said.
The host disagrees, though. "I'm like, 'She's got way more body than Barbie!'"
"That's true! Definitely true!" Jedlica said. "But, I mean, as far as the idea of being the idealistic, optimal male, when it comes to business, family, relationships and being on the top of your game with all of those things, if I use that Ken doll reference sort of to mean and symbolize that, then I can run with it."

Just this week, prior to his talk show apperance, Jedlica visited Dr. Douglas Senderoff in New York City to get fillers and laser resurfacing. "I've had my 'facial maintenance' for the next 6 months!" he said on Facebook Sunday. "Feeling FRESH!"
Jedlica has undergone more than 132 cosmetic procedures over the years, which has been expensive—so expensive, in fact, that the model has supplemented his income by consulting with prospective plastic surgery patients. "My goal was kind of to become a house husband. So I got married, my husband does well, I'm blessed in that respect," he explained on the Botched Reunion: Show & Tell special last year. "Outside of that, I'm doing the consultation pairing. So I pair them with specialists. People come to me and they say, 'Hey, I'm really interested in finding out who the nose guy is.' I do custom implants now." Jedlica later likened his work to that of a ghostwriter, explaining, "I'm not giving bad recommendations."
