#40 – Pamela Bach
Hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Pamela Bach followed in her mother’s footsteps and became a model as a teenager before packing up and moving west to sunny Los Angeles in 1985 to try her hand at acting. After appearing on television shows like T.J. Hooker, Bach met and fell in love with David Hasselhoff on the set of Knight Rider. The couple married in 1989 and Bach’s fate was forever changed as she found herself as the newest Baywatch babe in 1991.
Though Bach appeared in over a dozen Baywatch episodes between 1991 and 2000, she never found the same level of stardom as her husband. Leaving the show and struggling to find work, Bach divorced Hasselhoff in 2006 and lost custody of her two daughters. Since then, she’s had minor roles in series like Sirens as well as in made-for-television movies with her most recent appearance on the 2011 season of Celebrity Big Brother. As the second evicted from the Big Brother house, someone should throw the 52-year-old Bach a life preserver to save what’s left of her career!
