If you think the world of reality TV is filled with desperate fame junkies now, just wait until you hear the strange story of Jasmine Tridevil.
Ms. Tridevil (No, it’s not her real name) is a 21-year-old massage therapist living in Florida who’s combined her quest for fame with her distaste for dating by having a third breast surgically implanted in order to make herself “unattractive to men” and help her land her own MTV series.
Jasmine says her third breast cost over $20,000 and she nearly gave up on the idea after she had difficulty finding a doctor to perform the procedure.
“It was really hard finding someone who would do it because they’re breaking the code of ethics,” said Jasmine in a recent interview. “I called like 50 or 60 doctors, no one wanted to do it.”
Eventually, however, Jasmine found a surgeon who’s need for cash outweighed his moral code, and he was able to fashion a third breast using skin from Jasmine’s abdomen.
Jasmine claims that the breast feels natural and that “the only difference is the nipple,” which she has had tattooed on.
So why go to such extreme measures just to force yourself to rely on custom bras for the rest of your life? Is Jasmine hoping to land a role in the sequel to that Total Recall remake that bombed?
No, that would actually make more sense than her real reasoning:
“My whole dream is to get this show on MTV,” says Jasmine, adding that she’s paid a camera crew to document her day-to-day life. “I’m dumping every penny I have into this. If this doesn’t work, I’m through.”
Realizing, perhaps, that execs might be put off by the idea of encouraging young people to dramatically alter their bodies for the sole purpose of scoring a reality show, Jasmine later clarified:
“I got [the third breast] because I want to make myself unattractive to men. I don’t want to date anymore.”
Good thing no one has ever changed anything about their personality or belief system after the age of 21!
But regardless of how you feel about Jasmine’s life choices, you’ve gotta give her credit for somehow making Courtney Stodden’s breasts appear natural.
And, of course, Jasmine’s unique ideas about feminine beauty have earned her a spot in our esteemed “Florida Woman” Hall of Fame. Check out the gallery below for a laugh and an extreme boost to your self-esteem:
