Baywatch aired from 1989 to 2001, making it the longest-running show that never received an Emmy award. But what do those award-giving types know, anyway? Baywatch is fantastic, slow-motion television. Here's what your favorite life-saving beach babes are up to now.
Baywatch made Pamela Anderson a household name. She was everyone's favorite buxom blonde bouncing along the beach. There's a good chance you know what she did after leaving Baywatch in 1997 (more acting, more Playboy modeling, a sex tape with Tommy Lee) but aren't you wondering what she's doing now?
Hailed as the biggest sex symbol of the '90s, Pamela Anderson still makes appearances on TV shows and in movies. She was the focus of one of Comedy Central's famous roasts in 2005. More recently, she competed on Dancing with the Stars and the British show Dancing on Ice.
C.J.'s bestie, Caroline Holden, was conceited. But she was also beautiful, so it was hard to blame her. Caroline also found her way out of a situation with a cheating husband, so good for her. So what became of actress and model Yasmine Bleeth after Baywatch?
Yasmine Bleeth starred on a handful of other TV shows and TV movies after Baywatch, including Nash Bridges and Titans. She also appeared in the film BASEketball. The bad news: Many of her most recent headlines chronicle her cocaine addiction. Some good news: She's an active spokesperson for the Susan B. Komen organization.
Jessie Owens was introduced in Baywatch's final season. She also played a role in Baywatch Hawaii. Here's what happened to Brooke once the sun set on the Baywatch TV franchise (No, not Baywatch Nights).
Brooke Burns has a titanium neck. OK, there's more to the story. In 2005, she broke her neck in a car accident. She's fine now, thanks to her new, metal-fused neck. She spends most of her time appearing in TV movies and hosting various reality shows.
Leigh was introduced in 2000, when the tide was rolling out for Baywatch. That didn't make her any less hot. But whatever became of Brande Roderick?
Aside from Baywatch, Roderick enjoyed a successful Playboy career, honored as Playmate of the Year in 2001. She competed on two seasons of Celebrity Apprentice and also runs a fantasy gaming site.
Nicole Eggert brought us Summer Quinn on Baywatch, but she was already a TV vet by then, with recurring roles on Who's the Boss and Charles in Charge. Did Quinn put all that TV experience to use?
Eggert was engaged to actor Corey Haim during perhaps his darkest time. Since Haim's death, Eggert has appeared on everything from Celebrity Fit Club to Oprah: Where Are They Now. She also pops up in TV movies and guest stars on shows here and there.
Jenna Avid was prominent in the final seasons of Baywatch as well as Baywatch Hawaii. Once she stripped out of that suit, Krista Allen went on to bigger things. Bigger than Baywatch? Hard to believe, but yes.
Allen nabbed movie roles including Liar, Liar; Anger Management, and Final Destination. She co-produces a vegan blog and was most recently romantically linked to Nathan Fillion (Richard Castle) from Castle.
Olympic-caliber swimmer Cody Madison kept people laughing while saving lives on Baywatch. But it didn't stop there for David Chokachi.
Right after Baywatch, Chokachi went on to play Detective Jake McCartey in Witchblade. He followed that with guest appearances on several TV shows.
All of Zac Efron's inspiration for the film reprisal of Baywatch comes from this guy right here. After Charvet's starring roles on Baywatch and Melrose Place, his career went down a very different path.
In the late '90s, the French actor and singer signed a contract with Universal Music Group France and recorded three albums that did fairly well on the French charts. He married actress and dancer Brooke Burke-Charvet in 2011.
Baywatch fans watched this beauty grow from a young, inexperienced lifeguard to a life-saving aficionado in just a few seasons.
In 1992, Playboy Playmate and actress Erika Eleniak appeared in Under Siege with Steven Seagal. The next year, she portrayed Elly May Clampett in the big-screen version of The Beverly Hillbillies.She also appeared on Celebrity Fit Club and in a number of independent films.
Jordan Tate was the first black lifeguard on the Baywatch roster. That's a cool fact, but there's so much more to this gorgeous actress.
Like many of her former castmates, Bingham posed for Playboy and rode the reality TV train. She's also a PETA supporter, taking part in the "I'd Rather Be Naked Than Wear Fur" initiative.
The angstiest of the lifeguards, Logan Fowler just never got along with the others. That might have been because he'd do anything to anyone to get exactly what he wanted. Here's what steaming hot actor Jaason Simmons has been up to since he left Logan Fowler in the sand.
Yes, he showed up in the first Sharknado, but that's not all! Following Baywatch, Simmons took his acting chops to the stage in London. He also starred in independent films like Nowhere. The Australian actor is engaged to Irish actor John O'Callaghan.
Stephanie Holden took her job as a lifeguard very seriously. She was so devoted that she rescued endangered beach-goers until her last breath. Things ended tragically for Holden, but not so for actress Alexandra Paul.
Paul is still acting - she'll appear alongside Gena Lee Nolin in Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens - but lately her biggest roles are in nonprofits. She is an activist for animal rights, gay rights, environmental causes and more. You might also catch her hanging with fellow Baywatch alums on her Instagram account.
We know that Duane Johnson is the new Mitch Buchannon, but we'll never forget how David Hasselhoff portrayed the original. And, a little gift for Baywatch lovers: Hasselhoff has a role in the new film. The plot thickens! Other than the new Baywatch, here's what's going on with the star.
The one and only Hoff! Where hasn't he been? He pops up in movies (Click) and on reality shows, including his own. The man is such a staple that he earned his own Comedy Central Roast in 2010. He's also a producer, writer and... goodness. It just doesn't stop with the Hoff.
Mitch Buchannon's (David Hasselhoff) son, Hobie, was a role that almost went to Leonardo DiCaprio. Lucky for us, though, Jeremy Jackson really made Hobie come to life beginning in the show's second season. Now he's is all grown up! Here's what the actor is up to now.
Jackson performs in nightclubs as "Mr. Myspace." He also appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. But he has broadened his focus a bit by endorsing the Ed Hardy clothing brand.
If you confuse Newbie with the real Michael Newman, you're not far off. Newman is an actual lifeguard who consulted and acted on Baywatch. Many Baywatch episodes were based on his real-life rescues. The show made him not only a hero, but a star as well.
After the show, Newman continued a very active lifestyle until he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2011. He is now a real estate professional.
