Justin Bieber lookalike and reality personality Tobias Strebel has died. Strebel, who claimed that he had undergone plastic surgery worth $100,000 to look like Bieber, was 35. He was found dead in a Motel 6 room in Los Angeles, three days after he was reported missing, said Entertainment Weekly. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
In 2014, Strebel appeared on My Strange Addiction and talked about the many surgical procedures he underwent to look like Bieber, including hair transplants, lip surgery, and a chin reduction. Strebel is best known for appearing on E!’s Botched where he was shown recording his own music.
He described Bieber as the ‘whole package’, with ‘bright, open eyes’, ‘full, luscious lips’ and his swept-over bangs. Strebel said in that episode his goal was to look like how Bieber used to look when he was ‘really young’.
He said his ‘ultimate dream’ was to duet with the pop star.
