Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves in talks to host his own talk show
Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves is in talks to front his own TV show.
The Brazilian native shocked followers last month when he went under the knife for a 60th time to have four ribs removed.
The extracted so-called “floating ribs” left him reliant on a corset to protect his spine while recovering from the invasive surgery.
The 34-year-old admitted to feeling like he had “been run over by a truck” days after the operation.
However he hasn’t been put off pursuing a career in front of the cameras.
Roddy told Sun Online: “So far I’ve done more than 60 TV shows in 18 countries and I have four more coming up.
“I’m tired of doing TV shows for other people – so it’s time for me to have my own.”
He added: “I have a plan about how the show should be and have approached different networks around the world in countries like Germany, France, Spain – and of course the UK!”
Roddy continued: “England would be amazing but I don’t think people get me very well there.
“They just see me as the plastic surgery guy.
“But in other countries they give me more air time and they see a different side of me.”
The enhancements addict revealed he is a huge fan of Graham Norton.
But he said his programme is “too formal” and his own show will be “more fun”.
He added: He said: “I want a big show with fireworks and beautiful outfits coming from the ceiling and great guests. It’s going to happen.
“We keep going back and forth. They keep saying, ‘we don’t have the budget for this’ and they want to change the idea.
“So it’s a very long process. But I’m sure it will happen.”
The cosmetic obsessive, who has said he is asexual, now says he no longer intends to go under the knife.
Rodrigo told The Sun Online : “Plastic surgery-wise, I would say that I’m done.
“I’m officially made but if anything falls apart – like if my face goes wonky – then I’ll have to get more work done.”
“I now want to focus on building my brand with my style, fashion, personality and lifestyle – that’s what I want to be known for.
“I was at the Golden Globes in LA last week and I met a lot of people who would be interested in my work as an actor too.”
Rodrigo was the first man in the world to undergo the procedure, following just a handful of women.
He claimed to have wanted the highly dangerous procedure to help him fit into tight blazers more easily.
“I can see the result without the corset but when I have it on, that’s when people can see the dramatic results,” Rodrigo told Sun Online.
“On a good day, it goes down to 20 inches… And by a good day, I mean when I don’t eat anything for a day.”
Showing off his new look to This Morning hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby last week, Rodrigo flaunted his tiny waistline.
Quizzed on why he went to such extreme lengths, the surgery obsessive explained: “I had four ribs removed so I can do my blazers up without having to breathe in or have them altered.”
He originally wanted to have six ribs removed and spoke with a string of professionals to try and convince them.
But doctors refused to perform the surgery in full, saying the risks are too great, and instead agreed to remove the four “floating ribs”.
He said: “It is dangerous to internal organs. My ribs that were the 11th and 12tth, they are the floating ribs there is not much use for them.”
He added: “I am the only man to have the procedure done. A few women have but they don’t talk about it.”

Viewers were shocked when the Instagram celebrity then showed off his ribs in a jar.
The hosts suggested he would have been better to spend the money on therapy than cosmetic altercations, but Rodrigo hit back to reveal has had both.
“Well I am 34 years old, it has been a very long journey for me,” he said. “I love the way I look. I love to stand out.
“Yes, there is contentment in my soul. Plastic surgery has changed my life. From water to wine.”
