The “Bieber” fever started when this guy posted his videos singing on Youtube, then Usher and Timberlake wanted to record an album for him.

At his best, Woods earned more than $100 million a year for his trademark contracts, and it’s estimated that nearly 90 percent of his revenue came from sponsors.

ABC did everything it could to silence Reality Steve and forced E ! to cut her segment in a special show “Bachelor/Bachelorette: Where Are They Now.
