Meet the transsexual who has spent one million dollars to transform from bullied ‘band geek’ to barbie doll and is now looking for her ken

Meet the transsexual who has spent ONE MILLION DOLLARS transforming from bullied ‘band geek’ to Barbie doll and is now looking for her dream real life Ken Doll.

Nikki Exotika, 35, from Hoboken in New Jersey, USA, has been under the knife for nearly two decades changing every inch of her body to look like her plastic fantastic idol.


From two-years-old she knew she was different, always putting on make-up and nail polish before becoming obsessed with Barbie two years later.

At school, while living as Jason Torres, she was bullied for her flamboyant style and self-expression, when she would hike-up her shorts and strut down the corridors in tight t-shirts like a runway.

She received comments from ‘Cover girl’ and ‘Pretty boy’ to hateful homophobic names like ‘faggot’ and ‘homo’ as well as being beaten up but didn’t allow it to hold her back.

After visiting Transsexual and Transvestite bars in her teens, she discovered hormones, silicone injections and more.

By the age of 19, she had gender reassignment surgery, after three nose jobs, two boobs jobs and an Adam’s apple reduction.

Since then she’s gone onto have over a million dollars-worth of surgery, procedures and other aids to help to transform her into a Barbie Doll.


The solo-recording artist, who previously formed America’s first transgender pop group ‘Secret Girls’, is now looking for love with her eyes set on finding a perfect plastic partner who looks like a Ken Doll.

Nikki, a proud mum of three adopted gay sons, said: “I’ve had over a million dollars of surgery, I only did the calculation recently and struggled to remember everything I’ve done to myself.

“My body has had gallons of silicone, I’ve spent a lot on changing everything from my head to my toes, breasts and body.

“But it’s all paid off, because while travelling the world everywhere I go people look at me and say ‘Wow, look at her body, she looks like Barbie’ and always want to take pictures with me.

“When I walk down the street with my hair in a long ponytail, hot pink lipstick, shades, jeans and a crop-top, girls say ‘Oh my god, you look just like Barbie’ – that’s how I know I’m accomplishing my dream.

“When I look at my boy photos now I don’t recognise myself at all, it’s such a total transformation, you can’t even see a little bit of the boy I used to be.


“At one point, I got to a level where I didn’t need to keep having surgery, I looked like a biological woman but wasn’t happy with looking basic, I was focussed on becoming a Barbie Doll.

“In my mind, Barbie looked different to who I saw in the mirror, the more surgeries I did the closer I got to my dream and the happier and more content I became with myself.

“I didn’t just want to be pretty, I wanted to be gorgeous, stunning, the ultimate – I never wanted to be the girl next door I wanted to be the sexy b**** down the block.

“Now I feel like I’ve achieved as close as I can to perfection, minus the little hiccups here and there, I’m happy with the way I look.

“Soon I’m getting a Pink BMW convertible to enhance my Barbie image, then after that I’ll be looking for a hot guy who looks like a Ken Doll.

“I’m still optimistic on the relationship front, hopefully one day I’ll find my Ken – I’m looking for a tall, superhot, straight muscular man, I love tattoos and pretty boys that look like Ken Doll.”

Nikki, grew-up idolising Barbie and popstars like Madonna, after believing she was born in the wrong body from as young as two-years-old.

She said: “I would get reprimanded for playing with my cousin’s dolls at four-years-old, even then I wanted to look like Barbie, it was always my dream.

“Then small things like I would always sit-down when I went to the bathroom, I never stood up, it felt like I was born with the wrong genitals even at that age.


“I was confused and ashamed, I didn’t know what was wrong with me, back then I had no knowledge of being trans and it was a secret I kept from everyone.”

In school, Nikki she received cruel comments for her ‘eccentric’ appearance, but at home she would raid her mum’s closet, apply heavy make-up and dream of being one of the stars on MTV.

She said: “I started using concealer in middle school and a little pencil to draw on my eyebrows, I would go in all pretty and nice, my nickname was ‘cover girl’.

“I was bullied every single day at school and after school I was always feminine, I would hike my shorts up and wear tight shirts and ‘pretty boy’ make-up.

“Some guys were nice and defended me in school but most of the jocks called me a “faggot’ pushed me into the lockers, punched, tripped, spit amongst other things.

“No matter how many times I was beat up after school or in the locker room, I never gave-up on being myself and living the way I have always felt inside.”

During her teens she discovered drag bars, meeting trans-men and started taking illegal hormones and having body modifying injections to achieve her dream.


Since then Nikki’s done everything from breast enhancements, nose jobs, lifts, tucks, fixing botched surgery, voice therapy and more in her quest to look like Barbie.

Including a staggering $250,000 worth of hospital costs, $150,000 on Botox, fillers, facials and peels and over $155,000 on makeup, lashes, hair extensions and tanning.

Nikki said: “All I wanted was to be able to look in the mirror and escape the pain I had as a child, and look like a totally different person.

“One thing is true, when you have had plastic surgeries to change your appearance, you have it a lot easier than someone who hasn’t.

“But that doesn’t make me any better than any one of you, because I used to be just like you, my looks are just a shell, your heart is what defines you.”

Nikki is part of the Plastics of Hollywood, the world’s first ‘real life doll house’ showcasing characters who have collectively spent in over $4 million changing their appearances.

Marcela Iglesias, Manager of the Plastics of Hollywood, said: “When I saw Nikki’s transformation, I realised she had been through more plastic surgery than probably anyone else.

“She told me about her calculations for surgeries, anaesthesia, tanning, make-up and everything to become a Barbie Doll and it tallied way over a million dollars.

“Then I found out about how she was bullied at school, along with the nasty words and attacks, it is a true blessing she’s alive and that she followed her dream.

“A lot of people I know who were bullied at school take antidepressant medication, but Nikki instead continued to follow her dream and become who she wanted,

“Her story shows you can have a happy ending be whoever you want to be and work through life’s obstacles, don’t let anyone put you down.”


A TV show is set to follow the Plastics of Hollywood talent agency and their antics, as the characters tries try to find work outside of the world of surgical and cosmetic enhancement.

The cast includes Argentine ‘momager’ Marcela Iglesias, Rodrigo Alves, Kim Kardashian doppelganger Jennifer Pamplona, Alien doll Vinny Ohh, Britney wannabe Bryan Ray and more.

Marcela said: “Nikki is awesome and very hardworking, she set up the first transgender pop group who were meant to be similar to the Spice Girls.

“She has a lot of musical talent, can model, act and dance so she is perfect for the Plastics of Hollywood.

“I’m really excited for her to come and meet the other dolls to become part of the plastic family, she’s a great addition for us and the show.”
