Famed Soloflex model sentenced to prison for embezzling from uncle's Vancouver business

To his fans, former Soloflex model Scott Madsen is an Adonis whose muscular frame remains popular viewing on YouTube and Web sites such as hunkdujour.com.

But in the eyes of the law, he's an embezzler.

U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman in Portland sentenced Madsen today to two years in prison for siphoning nearly $250,000 from his uncle's small mortgage company in Vancouver.

In the early 1980s, an infomercial depicted Madsen -- sporting a red headband, tight red shorts and red swooshes on his Nikes -- as he put a Soloflex machine through its paces. His body of modeling work, including videos of that workout and black and white stills of him throwing a discus in the buff, still abounds on the Internet.

But Madsen himself, now 48, vanished from the public view, causing many to question what became of him.

Ummmm, r2, there is a thread about Mamie Eisenhower's hair so this is pretty much 5 seconds ago by DL standards. At least this guy is still alive.

No part of him will be experiencing a 'solo flex' in prison.

he must be so old because I am an eldergay. I remember be quite young and he was making a calendar signing appearance at some gift shop (book shop?) on Castro Street. That must have been at least 50 years ago. :)

I was gonna say - I didn't know he was merely 16 when doing the 1983 Soloflex commercials (if he was 48 as stated in the article in 2016 that is - then I saw the story is 5 years old and he'd be around 53 today). I searched and couldn't find a single picture of him recently or past his heyday at all for that matter.

Interesting .... not much of a mention about Scott after 2011 and no pictures anywhere besides his 1980s Soloflex/poster book stuff.
