Toby Sheldon (born Tobias Strebel in 1980 in Germany) is a musician and songwriter best known as being a Justin Bieber look-alike. Toby’s obsession with appearance began when he was 23, as he underwent treatments to prevent his hair from thinning. After transplants gave him a Justin Bieber hairstyle, he followed them with more plastic surgery to change his appearance to match. Despite his appearance, Toby said he wasn’t a big fan of Justin or his music. Instead, he admired Justin’s youthful appearance, as he had a self-admitted fear of aging. Toby’s obsession with his look led him to star in episodes of TLC’s My Dangerous Addiction and on E!’s plastic surgery reality television show, Botched. On Aug. 21, 2015, Toby’s lifeless body was discovered in a San Fernando Valley Motel 6. Drugs were reportedly found close to his body. Toby had reportedly gone through a really bad break-up with his boyfriend a week before he was found dead.
