Baywatch was one of the most iconic television shows of the 1990s. Featuring an all-star cast, the show followed a number of Los Angeles County Lifeguards as they patrol the LA beaches. The action drama starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and became famous for showing scantily-clad lifeguards running on the beach.
Although the primary focus of the show was the lifeguards’ jobs, their interpersonal relationships were also an important aspect of the plot. The lifeguards regularly dealt with some pretty insane situations; drowning was normal, of course, but things like shark attacks, earthquakes, and serial killers also came up.
The cast was known for being absolutely gorgeous. The men were toned and tanned, and the women were classic “bombshells.”
Although it feels like the show was on just a few years ago, it’s actually been 17 years since the show went off the air! Check out what the cast is doing now.
David ‘The Hoff” Hasselhoff is 65 years old now, but he’s still as fit as ever. When Baywatch ended, David’s career continued to grow. He’s appeared in movies like Dodgeball, Click, and Hop. He’s also appeared on Broadway, in shows like The Producers and Chicago. David’s daughters, Taylor and Hayley, are both in their twenties.
After Baywatch, Pamela continued acting and modeling. She starred in movies like Raw Justice and Barb Wire, before taking a break from the spotlight. In the mid-2000s, Pamela returned to the public eye, posing for magazines like Marie Claire, Elle, GQ, and Playboy. Pamela is also an activist. She has two sons, Brandon and Dylan, with ex-husband Tommy Lee.
Nicole Eggert hasn’t done a ton of acting since Baywatch, but she has appeared on a number of reality television shows. Nicole has two daughters, Dilyn and Keegan.
