Baywatch has a special place in television history. We have to thank 'The Hoff' for that since he offered to take a huge pay cut after the show was originally cancelled after one season due to poor ratings. Despite not being known for sharp dialogue or strong storylines (no one cared what anyone was saying, really), it became one of the most popular shows around the world and was also one of the longest running shows on television (1991-2001). Its slow-mo scenes of men and women in red swimsuits became synonymous with the show, images that are forever engrained in our hearts. It was corny and it was bad, yet so many still tuned in.
And so, a remake was inevitable. The Baywatch reboot to come out in 2017 will feature fresh new faces like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario to name a few. The original OGs like David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will also be making cameos, as well as some other up and coming hotties like Charlotte McKinney.
This reboot will be R-rated, meaning the innocence of 90s Baywatch will be long gone. The Rock said that “We want to make a big movie - a fun beach movie. [We want to] bring the beach movie back to the world, but also have something that has edge and has bada*s action and really dirty, rated-R humor, which is right in my wheelhouse.” Whether the reboot will descend into corny ridiculousness is something that time will tell. Will you be watching?
15 A Taste Of What's To Come
Baywatch: hot men and women running down the beach toward danger in slow-mo. The slow-mo scenes were a Baywatch hallmark and they were actually originally inspired by the Olympics. David Hasselhoff also revealed that they were used to lengthen a short episode so that they didn't have to spend more on footage.
14 We're Amping Up The Appeal
13 A Teaser
You may be surprised to know that this picture is indeed from the set of Baywatch. While it is certainly lacking a lot of skin (and a tight, red bathing suit), pictures of Priyanka Chopra in such attire are, sadly, very difficult to locate. We hope that won’t be the case in the film as this woman is quite a beautiful specimen.
12 Because #Fails Are Always Fun
You may have come across this picture already because it ended up becoming an Internet meme after it became evident that running down the beach while trying to look extra sexy was a task too difficult for the uncoordinated Zac Efron. We have to give Dwayne Johnson an honourable mention here because he seems just as baffled as the rest of us do.

8 The New C.J. Parker
One can never see too many pictures of a super hot woman in a swimsuit, right? Again, thank us later. Here we have a frontal picture of Kelly Rohrbach, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and actress, giving us a good look of the wonder that is her. Look at those perky ta-tas, long legs and beachy blonde waves. We’re not sure if there’s a girl who looks as good as her.
Look at that toned body and that stunning face! Let’s take a moment to thank whoever snuck these first pictures of the Baywatch set. If you aren't familiar with Rohrbach yet, let’s catch you up. She appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in both 2015 and 2016, and was also named “Rookie of the Year.” Now that she is taking on the iconic role of C.J. Parker, she could very well be our next sex symbol. She is also Leonardo DiCaprio’s former girlfriend, and clearly one of his biggest mistakes.
7 The Rock Has A Great Job
The Rock is living it up in this picture. And why wouldn’t he be? Surrounded by beautiful women in bikinis, one of which is no other than Charlotte McKinney, the girl hailed as the “Next Kate Upton,” for obvious reasons. She will be making a cameo in the remake, which many will undoubtedly be looking forward to. What’s your opinion of the casting choice so far? Do you think the original cast was hotter? We imagine there is going to be a mix of opinions. Should they have went with someone like Kate Upton? Indeed, her well-endowed figure would have easily rivaled that of Pamela Anderson.
6 Got This Promotional Picture Right
5 The Original C.J.
We forgot how gorgeous Pamela Anderson was at the height of her fame back in the 90s (left). And to think that she was discovered by chance alone (when a camera zoomed in on her at a football game). She has also been on more Playboy covers than any other woman.
Although Baywatch shot Anderson into fame, you may be surprised to know that she was not keen on taking part in the most remake, saying, “I don’t know if I want to go on Baywatch and be, like, the old lady working at a counter somewhere.” It seems that perhaps Anderson doesn’t want to be shown up by a younger, hotter woman.
4 Baywatch Before Fame
3 Hot AF, LOL
You didn’t think we’d make a list like this without including “The Hoff,” did you? The typical Baywatch shorts combined with that sexy floatation device he carried in every running scene - pure magic. Seriously though, you have to admit the guy was in great shape and he’s continued being in great shape all the way into his sixties - that’s right, he’s 64 years old now! Time sure flies, just like those delicious wasps of testosterone driven hair on his bare chest. If all of that isn’t enough to make you realize how steamy David Hasselhoff is, then you need to go watch his music videos. You heard that right, he has a music career. He even had an album go triple-platinum in Europe. And Germans seem to love him. He scored a number one hit single there. We imagine that fact has something to do with the country giving birth to modern existentialism. Nothing proves life is meaningless quite like The Hoff sitting atop the music billboards...
2 For Your Enjoyment
1 Need We Say More?
If anyone could compete with Pamela Anderson's C.J. Parker, the well-endowed bombshell most synonymous with Baywatch (and one of their most popular and longest-running characters), it is Kelly Rohrbach. Yes, she may be somewhat of an “unknown” at this point, but her drop dead gorgeousness more than makes up for it.
Dwayne Johnson was particularly excited about Rohrbach taking on the role of the blonde bombshell that he even took to Instagram to welcome her to the cast earlier this year. He said, "A pleasure welcoming @kellyrohrbach to our #BAYWATCH family for the iconic role of "CJ Parker". Yes, she's a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em. Get ready world, we can't wait to bring you our generation's #BAYWATCH! You'll have fun..."
