Local TV Notes: Human Ken Doll Vs. King Of The Nerds

"Justin Jedlica has had 140 plastic surgery procedures in the last 15 years," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

"The 33-year-old Trump Tower resident has 12 implants in his torso that mimic shapely arm and chest muscles, 15 silicone injections in his buttocks and 11 in his face.

"The spate of procedures earned him the nickname 'the Human Ken Doll' when he made his first TV appearance on a 2012 20/20 special called 'Extreme Plastic Surgery.'"

He also just appeared on TLC's My Strange Addiction:

Nerd Trend Unabated
"Josh Wittenkeller has put his passion for sci-fi, comic books and video games to good use," the Tribune reports.

"Besides running a Pokemon and Nintendo-focused YouTube channel (The JWittz, with more than 800,000 subscribers), the Grayslake native will compete for the $100,000 grand prize on the TBS reality show, King of the Nerds. The reality competition, which premieres Thursday, is hosted by Revenge of the Nerds stars Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong."

That YouTube channel would be this one.

FYI: Wittenkeller is a media studies graduate.

Cautionary Comics Tale
The description of a recent Hardcore Pawn: Chicago:

"A mother of her son away at college makes a deal with Wayne and Randy to sell his comic books for $100, after an expert they hired determined their value. However, she later called off the deal when she got a better offer from another dealer, who was offering her $200. They would later find out that that other seller was actually the expert that they hired. Furthermore, they found the reason why the expert wanted the comics - it included a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15, which featured the debut of Spider-Man, valued at around $12,000."

Here's the whole episode.
