What the stars of Baywatch look like now

Baywatch is back, baby.

The sexy, sandy drama is streaming on Prime Video in HD. The streaming update also includes 350 original songs to score those unforgettable beachy montages we all love so much.

Baywatch was once awarded a Guinness World Record for having the largest global TV audience — nearly a billion viewers in 140 countries — but it’s been a minute since we’ve seen some of those sexy swimmers.

So, what exactly are our favourite lifesavers up to now?

From Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff to Carmen Electra and David Chokachi, here we let you know how their careers, and hot bods, are doing 30 years after the show first premiered. Plus, did you know our very own Aquaman got his start on the shores of the sexy Malibu beaches?

Pamela Anderson, before she was known for that infamous sex tape with ex Tommy Lee, was best known as C.J. Parker, one of the longest-running characters on Baywatch, no pun intended, though she did get in some pretty solid beach jogs during her five seasons on the show.

Anderson also made a cameo in the 2017 Baywatch film and, after appearing on Dancing with the Stars, has also taken part in dancing competition shows in Argentina, France and the UK.

David Hasselhoff clocked a total of 220 episodes on Baywatch as Mitch Buchannon, stud of the beach. In fact, it’s because of him the drama series was watched by nearly a billion viewers in 140 countries. When the series was cancelled after its first season, Hasselhoff signed on as an executive producer and put up his own money to get the show into syndication, which is what led to it getting picked up again and becoming one of the most beloved series of our time.

Hasselhoff remains an integral part of the Baywatch brand and appeared in the 2017 Baywatch film starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

After appearing in The Young and The Restless and as one of Barker’s Beauties on The Price is Right, model and actress Gena Lee Nolin hit the beach as Neely Capshaw in 64 episodes of Baywatch from 1995-98.

Nolin popped up in the 2017 action comedy Killing Hasselhoff and also stopped by the 2010 Comedy Central roast of her former co-star. She is an author and blogger.

Carmen Electra

Before Carmen Electra slipped into that red bathing suit as Lani McKenzie for 22 episodes of Baywatch, she was working on her singing career with none other than Prince. Her appearance in a 1996 issue of Playboy landed her on the sultry, sandy show.

Seen here at a Los Angeles gala in October 2018, Electra has posed for Playboy four more times over the course of her career, which has also included more singing, dancing, hosting, and acting. She has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows.

Michael “Newmie” Newman was initially hired as a consultant on the show, as he was a lifeguard and firefighter. He went on to appear in 150 episodes of the series, serving as the only actual lifeguard on the show.

Newman now lives in Pacific Palisades, California with his family. He is working in real estate and has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Yasmine Bleeth was Caroline Holden for over 70 episodes of Baywatch from 1993-97. Her final acting project was, fittingly enough, the TV movie Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.

Bleeth struggled with a cocaine addiction and, despite a stint in rehab, was arrested in 2002 for cocaine possession and driving while impaired. She has since stayed out of the spotlight.

Jason Momoa

It’s true: Jason Momoa was indeed a Baywatch hunk.

He’s literally at the peak of his career and hotness now. After stints on Game of Thrones and Frontier, he’s raking in millions of dollars at the box office for Aquaman, confirming himself as one of the biggest, sexiest movie stars on the planet.
