Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had their tape stolen and made available for distribution long before Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton had sex recordings.
Back in the 1990s, it was a tremendous scandal that received a lot of attention. The first episode of the brand-new Hulu miniseries Pam & Tommys, told from the perspective of Rand Gauthier, portrayed by Seth Rogen, walks you through the entire ordeal.
Gauthier was an electrician Tommy recruited in both the miniseries and real life who became irate when he wasn't paid for months of work.
After defying Tommy, Rand Gauthier was ultimately let go. And Tommy pulled a revolver on him when he tried to regain his tools.
Who is Rand Gauthier?
Gauthier, an electrician, made a decision that affected others in his immediate vicinity for the rest of the time.
His decisions led to the public knowledge of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's sex tape.
Lee thinks that one of the repair workers at his London residence, where the couple was lodging, removed the safe containing the renowned tape.
The sex tape is said to have been taken from the rocker's home by Gauthier, 65, who was working there at the time of the theft.
Gauthier avenged Tommy by robbing the Mötley Crüe drummer of his safe. The sex tape was there, along with weapons and jewels that Gauthier intended to pawn off to repay the money Tommy owed him.
The plan to sell the tape online was Gauthier's, and the rest is history.
What transpired with Rand Gauthier, though? Was he imprisoned? Where is Rand Gauthier? What is he doing now? What you need to know to stay current is provided below.

How much did Rand Gauthier make from the sex tape?
It is also unknown if he received a fair portion of the money from the sales of the cassettes. Even though the video's actual sales exceeded $77 million in its first year alone, most of the funds, according to Cinemaholic, went to Seth Warshavsky's Internet Entertainment Group.
According to The Cinemaholic, Rand Gauthier's net worth is thought to be around $200,000.
Where is Rand Gauthier?
According to what Gauthier essentially said in a 2014 Rolling Stone interview, he doesn't feel bad about revealing Tommy and Pam's extramarital affairs to the public.
In it, Gauthier expressed his opinion of the recording as being "cute." They're a couple, in love, and just enjoying each other, and I think that's wonderful, he continued.
Additionally, Gauthier stated that he felt "jealous," adding, "I wish I had something like that." Nobody genuinely believes Gauthier when he claims to have stolen the iconic sex tape, he claimed.
According to Rolling Stone, Rand is currently in his 60s, residing in Santa Rosa, California, and cultivating marijuana in his garage. He still manages an electrical services business, and he likely leads a simple life.
Gauthier is leading a typical suburban life roughly 26 years later.
The electrician is allegedly "growing marijuana" near Santa Rosa, California, according to Digital Spy.
He told Rolling Stone in 2014 that he was pleased to have contributed to the world.

Was Rand Gauthier in Jail?
No, actually. Following Gauthier's online posting of the sex tape, bootleggers began to steal copies and spread them extensively.
Since he had initially stolen the recording and lacked the copyright, he could not pursue the bootleggers legally.
Louis "Butchie" Peraino, the mob boss, demanded repayment from Gauthier for the money he had borrowed.
According to Rolling Stone, Gauthier was forced to work for the mob to repay his debt.
With no public social media accounts and no new images online, Gauthier now enjoys a relatively low-profile life. He is working on a book exploring "the nature of symbolism and magic in religion."
