Eric is the younger son of NBA referee Jack Nies, and Anna May who worked as a pre-school teacher; his older brother is John Nies who played American Football for the Buffalo Bills. When they were younger, Eric and John featured nude in the infamous book “Bear Pond”, by Bruce Weber.

Eric’s career started in the early ‘90s on MTV, when he was hired as the host of “Hangin’ w/MTV” (1992), and soon after was selected as a cast member of the reality TV show “Real World: New York”. During the show, Eric gained fame mostly thanks to his good physique, which succeeded in landed him a few modeling jobs too. Due to his rising popularity, MTV took him under its wing and made him the host of the show “Grind” (1992), which only further increased his net worth and popularity as he inevitably appeared shirtless – Queen Latifa apparently asked him how much he was paid to do that. After “Real World: New York” ended, Eric was featured in several other installments of the show, and also its spinoff “The Challenge”, on which he appeared regularly from 1998 until 2005. In 2003 he was the host of the show “Dance Fever”, and then in 2006 appeared in the reality TV show “Celebrity Paranormal Project”, in which a number of famous people investigate haunted locations around the world. His last known appearance was in the VH1’s reality TV show “Confessions of a Teen Idol” in 2009.

Thanks to his success on screen, Eric was inducted into the Television and Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Focused on his physique, Eric subsequently developed a number of workout videos, which he promoted through daytime television shows, including “Donny and Marie”, and “The View”, among others.

Also, he and his brother created an exercise product “Abaratus”, used for abdominal exercise. Although it wasn’t welcomed particularly strongly by the public, the sales of the product also added to his net worth too.

Regarding his personal life, Eric has been married to Iona Nies since 2013; the couple has a son together.

Eric is also known for his philanthropic endeavors; he started the Moment of Hope organization, which was created after the September 11 attack in support of the children that were affected by the terrorist attacks.
