Biography

Lee Andrew Priest McCutcheon, also known as “The Blond Myth” (born July 6, 1972 in Newcastle, Australia) is an IFBB professional bodybuilder.

Priest was raised in Wallsend, Newcastle, NSW, Australia. He has gained popularity in the bodybuilding world due to his down-to-Earth manner, laconic sense of humour and willingness to talk to and help young up-and-coming bodybuilders. At 162 centimetres, he is one of the shortest professional bodybuilders. When not competing, he weighs as much as 130 kilograms, but he cuts down to 90 kilograms in competition season.

On July 1, 2000 he married Cathy LeFrancois, a female bodybuilder, from whom he has since separated. Recently he was engaged to popular fitness pro Adela Garcia.

Unlike many pro bodybuilders, Priest has long had an interest in tattoos. In 2005 he got a facial tattoo in a tribal style. Response from fans within the bodybuilding subculture- at once obsessed with image and hyper-aware of issues in self-identity, has been mixed.
