TEENAGE girls were screaming, children were screaming, men were screaming, and I was screaming.â€œHoff, Hoff, Hoff.â€Imagine seeing Baywatch hunk David Hasselhoff, 59, less than 10m away from you, styling a womanâ€™s hair. Could you believe it? I couldnâ€™t.Top Ryde City was host to 12 celebrities, including The Hoff, who were being filmed for the second season of Australiaâ€™s Celebrity Apprentice on Monday.The crowd was filled with screaming fans, including me, waiting for The Hoff to grace the stage.Comedian Vince Sorrenti was presenting the menâ€™s team who were challenged to style a womenâ€™s hair in different categories such as â€œrocker chickâ€.â€œIâ€™m not a hairdresser as you can see,â€ Hoff said to Sorrenti. â€œIâ€™m going for the rock look.â€On either side of The Hoff was former AFL star Jason Akermanis and former Australian Idol judge Dicko.But all eyes were on the American superstar. Sales assistants in Esprit were holding a sign saying â€œwe love The Hoffâ€, The Hoff was chanting his name and I was taking pictures on my phone.The womenâ€™s team was out before the menâ€™s with Australiaâ€™s Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson presenting water-ski and boxing champ Lauryn Eagle, Dancing With the Starsâ€™ Patti Newton and Bollywood actress Tania Zaetta.Taking only 20 minutes to style their participants hair, the womenâ€™s team seemed to do a better job.But who cares? The Hoff was coming up next.The winner will be revealed when the show is screened later this year.
