If you haven’t heard, there is a new Baywatch movie coming out soon. Everyone’s favorite TV show of the 90s, that featured women in bikinis running in slow motion, is soon to become a major motion picture. And if you ask us, there is nothing wrong with that at all.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron, and Alexandra Daddario have already been signed on, but what was still missing was a star to play the role of C.J. Parker. This role was originally played by Pamela Anderson, and although there were tons of hot women on Baywatch there was only one C.J., and only one Pamela Anderson.
So who would it be? Who would be the woman catapulted to superstardom as the next star of Baywatch? Well it turns out that it is none other than the smoking hot Kelly Rohrbach. As hot as Pamela was, we think that Kelly is just as hot, and maybe even just a bit hotter since she is more “natural looking.”
But who is Kelly Rohrbach? A lot of people don’t know much about her at all, as she is fairly unknown. Well, we at TheRichest are here to help change that.
Here are 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Kelly Rohrbach, the new star of Baywatch.
10. West Coast At Heart
While Kelly gives off the vibe of being a west coast kind of girl, the reality of it is she is from Connecticut. It isn’t just that she seems to be West Coast to us though, she has said the same about herself. “I was in Big Sur. My favorite thing about it was that it was in California. I love California. I’m from Connecticut, but I’m a California girl at heart. So when they told me I was shooting in Big Sur, everyone was like ‘That stinks you’re not going to a deserted island or Fiji.’ But, it was perfect,” she said when asked in an interview in the Latin Times what she liked most about shooting for Sports Illustrated.
9. The Rock Seems To Like Her
If the Rock does indeed like her, this would be a good thing. I mean the guy is literally one of the biggest stars in the world and he is her new co-star. Talk about a lot of pressure. But thankfully it seems to be going well. There were a bunch of cute little videos posted of the two of them running around on the sand on Instagram and there seems to be some chemistry there. He had this to say about her: “Yes, she’s a walking smokestack but more importantly… she’s smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like ’em.”
8. She Dated Leonardo DiCaprio
These two were really hot and heavy for a little while. There was even a rumor that Kelly and notorious ladies man Leonardo DiCaprio were engaged, although they were never actually confirmed. One source said that “She shares his passion for tackling social issues like global warming and world poverty. They connect on an intellectual level, which is new for him. She’s much more than a pretty face.” Uhh yeah, okay it probably had next to nothing to do with the fact that she’s unbearably hot. They started dating in June and the alleged proposal happened in September but…
7. Kelly and Leonardo Just Broke Up
Say it ain’t so Leonardo! Come on! Well apparently it is true. Whether it be the case of it just not working out, or maybe Leonardo just moved on, or maybe, just maybe, Kelly realized that she was going to be HUGE and could do better. Who knows? The word on the street is that the proposal never happened and after 5 months of hanging out they called it quits and that it was “mutual.” While Leo obviously won’t have any trouble finding another lady, his odds of finding another hot 25-year-old who is going to be one of the stars of one of the year’s biggest movies where she’ll be running around in slow motion wearing a bikini, seem pretty slim. Which means Leo actually lost out on this one.
6. She Studied At Georgetown
Georgetown is an excellent university that is based in Washington DC, not far from Connecticut. It is known for its academics, and also its basketball team. One thing a college degree from Georgetown tells us is that Kelly is no dummy, so it appears that she is not only gorgeous, but smart too. Not only that but she was recruited to go to Georgetown. Why you might ask? Well it turns out she is an excellent athlete, but at something that you probably wouldn’t expect from a hot young model. She holds a degree in Theater and Performance Studies.
5. She’s A Really Good Golfer
That is right, she not only went to Georgetown, but she was recruited there to play golf in their Division 1 program. On playing golf: “I love the outdoors and it’s a really good way for me to spend time with my Dad. It’s a patient sport, it’s a long game, people say, ‘Life is like a game of golf’ and it’s so true. There are so many lessons to be learned. It’s a great way to get to know someone.”
I would imagine there are a lot of guys out there that would like to get to know Kelly by playing golf, or any other way actually.
4. Modelled For Sports Illustrated
Shortly after Kelly started modeling, she got pretty much every models dream gig, which is a photoshoot for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. And we have to admit, we are pretty happy she got the job. Her shoot, and her body, are amazing. It didn’t stop there though; she was named Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Rookie of the Year, which is a rare compliment indeed. Some of the previous winners were Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal, and Kate Upton. So yeah, Kelly is in some pretty hot company there.
3. She Was An Actress Before Becoming A Model
Life has a funny way of coming full circle sometimes. Kelly didn’t actually want to be a model, she wanted to be an actress. She was getting some jobs, but not a whole lot, which is why she decided to try her hand at modeling. Then after being a model, she gets a job in a huge movie, as an actress. See how that works? She did have a few small roles, such as being in Two and a Half Men, before her agent told her to give modeling a try. Good idea.
2. She Better Take Swimming Lessons
Maybe she is an excellent swimmer but somehow with the Connecticut golfing lessons we doubt it. She might want to tighten up those skills. Alexandra Paul, who played Stephanie Holden on the TV show, had this to say when she heard Kelly got the part. “Learn how to swim really well,” Paul advised. “You’ve gotta look like a real lifeguard. That would be my first bit of advice. A lot of people think that they can swim or that they’re gonna use doubles, but I think that the film would be better served if the actors themselves did their swimming.”
1. She Is From A Big Family
There is no word yet on how hot her siblings are, but Kelly is one of 5 kids. Not only that, her family is very close. She has been open about how close she is to her dad and how his golfing inspired her. She posts a lot of pictures on Instagram of her family and calls them the Brady Bunch. They go out to eat together, vacation together, and play sports together. Okay, Kelly seems too good to be true, we admit it.
