There are two reasons why I decided to write this post about the men of Baywatch. One reason was that I came across all of the hot pictures of these guys while I was randomly trying to figure out what happened to Yasmine Bleeth. The other motive is that there is a movie in the works so the timing seems right. Oh, by the way, in case you were wondering, Yasmine Bleeth doesn’t act anymore and she lives in Scottsdale, Arizona. I used to have a poster of her in my room when I was a kid. It was probably a combination of finding her attractive, thinking she was fierce, and most importantly, some kind of cover up for my stronger attraction to the male lifeguards on the show. Teehee.
Anyway, so many of these guys I had forgotten about and so many I hadn’t put two and two together in terms of the shows or films they’ve been in since and realizing they were from Baywatch. Others seemed to have stepped away from the spotlight.
I wish you the best of luck in deciding who you think is the hottest. Seriously, I don’t know how you’ll be able to do it. I can narrow it down to three. Check out the photos below and vote for your favorite!
Now 42 years old, he was considered to be among the first men to achieve supermodel status. On Baywatch, he played J.D. He’s popular in the gay community for more reasons than just his looks and his body. He’s always been willing to take on gay roles and has done a lot to support the gay community and related causes.
Now 43 years old, Chokachi played Cody Madison on Baywatch. In 1997, he was one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World”. His most recent acting gig was in Soul Surfer where he played a paramedic. Random fact: He was Homorazzi Cast Member Rich’s first gay crush!
Of course, The Hoff. As the lead character in Baywatch playing Mitch Buchannon, he was in the most number of episodes in the series, totalling 220 to be exact. Now 59, there is no shortage of seeing him in the spotlight, whether it’s Dancing on DWTS, judging America’s Got Talent, or even recently dancing on stage with LMFAO at the AMAs.
He played Hobie, David Hasselhoff’s son in the series and as a result, was in the second most number of episodes – 178 to be exact. He was younger than the rest of the cast, but nowadays at 31 years old, he is grown and ripped! He hasn’t had the easiest road, having been addicted to drugs (even a cast member on Celebrity Rehab) and also having a sex tape in 2008.
Okay, he is definitely in my top 3. He played Eddie Kramer on the show and I don’t know if you remember, but he had the sexiest, raspy voice! Can you believe that he’s 50 years old now!? Wow!
He was hot back when he played Matt Brody on the show and he’s still hot now at 39 years old. Did you know that this past August, he got married to Brooke Burke, co-host of Dancing With The Stars? Back in the day, he also dated Tori Spelling.
This Australian export who is now 41 years old played Logan Fowler on Baywatch. A few years ago, he came out of the closet as a gay man and is currently writing a memoir.
He’s the third guy in my top three list, having played Sean Monroe on the show. He is also someone I hadn’t put two and two together with, having watched him on Days of our Lives as Peter Blake. On top of that, he’s definitely had one of the most successful careers out of the men from the show. He’s been on everything!
The 40 year old played Manny Gutierrez on Baywatch and was the first minority series regular on the show. He hasn’t really done any acting gigs since 2008. Coincidentally, that year he was arrested for stealing tattoo drawings from a tattoo parlor.
Donovan wrote about him for a past Man Crush. The 32 year old played Jason Loane in Baywatch Hawaii, and most recently played Conan in “Conan the Barbarian”. Not too shabby! I met him once when he popped into our office when I worked at Ginch Gonch.
Even though his mustache made him look like he was in a “vintage porn,” Newman was handsome and had a great body. Since the show, I wasn’t able to find out any recent info on him or current pictures. So, let’s just pretend he looks exactly the same.
