23 Stories About Plastic Surgery To Look Like Celebrity (23 pics)
Toby Sheldon: Justin Bieber
Bieber Fever is dangerous. Los Angeles singer-songwriter Toby Sheldon (aka Tobias Strebel) spent $100,000 on plastic surgery in order to look like Justin Bieber, who’s 14 years younger than Sheldon. The Beebs superfan appeared on plastic surgery horror story series "Botched" where he shared clips of his time in the recording studio and his motivation to look like the Canadian superstar.
Toby Sheldon was reported missing after being last seen in West Hollywood, CA on August 18, 2015. His body was discovered in a San Fernando Valley area Motel 6 on August 21, 2015. While a cause of death has yet to be reported, law enforcement officials have stated that drugs were found in the room and there is speculation that a recent breakup may have been a contributing factor in the aspiring singer's death.
Romario Dos Santos Alves: The Hulk Granted, "The Hulk" as a celeb is a bit of a stretch, but this story is too nuts not to share. A man in Brazil, so desperate to achieve growth in his arms, injected himself with a a concoction called synthol, a dangerous substance used to build mass. Even as his arms took on the properties of rocks, making it impossible to inject directly into the site of the desired build, the 25-year-old acquired special needles to make the injections possible, leading to a condition that nearly necessitated the amputation of both arms. Sounds a little more like "The Thing" than "The Hulk" at any rate...
Jordan James Parke: Kim Kardashian 23-year-old Parke has an Instagram feed filled with pics of furs, expensive handbags, and selfies, just like Kim Kardashian.

Said the gent with the Louis tattoos, "Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”

Celso Santebañes, Rodrigo Alves, and Justin Jedlica: Barbie's Boyfriend, Ken
Not one, not two, but AT LEAST three men have undergone thousands of dollars in plastic surgery to look like Barbie's boy toy, Ken. One of these dolls in particular, Brazilian model Celso Santebañes, commands up to $16,000 for personal appearances, is in talks to have his own reality show, and now has HIS OWN DOLL in his likeness. It's like a plastic surgery ouroboros (the snake that eats its own tail) that may or may not recoup some of the 50-odd thousand dollars Santebañes has already spent to look like his celebrity doll-pelganger.
