Baywatch Cast Gathers After 25 Years

Entertainment Tonight is interviewing the cast of Baywatch all this week. Check your local listings. 7:30pm PST on CBS or 6:30pm MST.Monday:25 years and a billion-plus viewers later, the Baywatch cast embarked on a trip down memory lane with ET on the landmark anniversary of the hit TV series' first show.David Hasselhoff's daughter Taylor played correspondent for the gathering at a huge autograph session in Los Angeles called The Hollywood Show which included Gena Lee Nolin, Nicole Eggert, Parker Stevenson, David Chokachi and the Hoff himself, who reflected fondly back on their toned and tanned days.From the pressure to fit inside those famously tiny suits to fun times on set, the Baywatch crew let loose when talking about the show that put many of them on the map.Tuesday:As one might imagine, it isn't easy to maintain a bikini-ready body all year long, but the former stars of Baywatch tell ET that's precisely what they had to do at the height of the show's popularity."The suits were regulation standard for part of our partnership," Erika Eleniak divulged of a very strict weight clause in many of her female co-stars' contracts, which gave them a mere five pounds leeway before facing termination."There's a lot of pressure," added Traci Bingham. "It was in my contract. You really had to stay fit for the show."Although a few of the ladies have been pretty open with the media about their struggles with weight after leaving the show, they laid no blame on Baywatch for their issues."It was later in life when I found out that I had thyroid issues and gained a ton of weight," explained Gena Lee Nolin. "I got up to 200 pounds."Wednesday:Boasting one of the most gorgeous casts in TV history, it's no surprise that the guys and gals ofBaywatch fancied their fellow cast mates, some of which (believe it or not!) were too shy to pursue their crushes.Reminiscing at The Hollywood Show, held quarterly for fans in L.A., David Chokachi tells ET that his on-screen love interest Carmen Electra had eyes for him on set, but he was blind to her advances."The awareness came a little late, unfortunately," he laughed, adding that, on the bright side, they took every opportunity to spice up their love scenes with a little illicit tongue action.Taylor Hasselhoff (daughter of David) was a staple on the beach set, even appearing in an episode or two. Acting as host to our group interview, she revealed a huge crush on cast member Jeremy Jackson. In fact, her love for him ran so deep that she owned a life-sized cutout of the actor which she kissed every night."You did?" he responded, shocked.Taylor was just seven at the time, so it's safe to say that Jackson was understandably oblivious.
