Don’t put him in a box! Patti Stanger tries to keep Justin Jedlica, a.k.a. the “human Ken doll,” from telling his dates about his many surgical procedures in Million Dollar Matchmaker’s series premiere on Friday, July 8, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek.
The We TV series’ preview clip shows Stanger’s reaction to Jedlica’s appearance as he arrives for a meeting with her. In a 2014 interview with The Daily Beast, Jedlica revealed that he has spent $170,000 on 149 surgical procedures. The cosmetic work led 20/20 to dub him the “human Ken doll” in an October 2012 segment about extreme plastic surgery.
“You look so changed, so radically different,” Stanger, 55, tells the businessman, 35, in the clip.
Before their meeting, she sent Jedlica out on identical horseback-riding dates with two different guys, Jeff and Beau, and is now interested in getting his impressions of the two wealthy suitors.
When Jedlica tells the matchmaker that Jeff didn’t want to know anything about his surgical procedures, she is impressed.
“The fact that he didn’t ask anything about your surgery tells you he’s getting to know you for you,” she says optimistically. She is equally pleased that Jedlica didn’t tell Beau about his “plastic surgery and the things you did on your body.”
Unfortunately for Jeff, Jedlica refers to him as “mild,” but he did feel “butterflies” during his kiss with Beau.
The surgery enthusiast also makes it clear that he appreciates the Millionaire Matchmaker alum’s support: “Patti is honestly seeming pretty proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish on these dates.”
Watch their candid chat in the video above. Million Dollar Matchmaker airs on We TV Fridays at 10 p.m. ET.
