Cast Of Baywatch: How Much Are They Worth Now?


Baywatch was a hugely successful series and during its time on the air was one of the most watched television shows in the world! The show spanned over a decade and led to a number of spin offs like Baywatch Nights, Baywatch Hawaii, and the reunion TV movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. Like any good show, Baywatch was definitely all about the drama — it had a cast of good looking stars, the dramatics of saving lives and the many and many interpersonal relationships within the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who patrolled the beaches in L.A. Fans will soon again be able to relive the series with an upcoming action/comedy film based on the 1989 series starring Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson and Alexandra Daddario. Before the new movie comes out, we’ve decided to check in on some of the original cast members of Baywatch to see how much they are worth now!

15. Erika Eleniak

Estimated Net Worth: $4 million. Erika is a former model, actress and, of course, like many Baywatch stars, a Playboy Playmate. She started her television career with a recurring role on Charles in Charge and then landed her big role on Baywatch in the female lead, Shauni McClain from ’89 to ’92. She left the show in the beginning of season 3 and moved onto a short stinted role on Full House. Since then she’s focused more on films, her most notable film appearances have been in The Librarians, Betrayal, Second to Die, Stealth Fighter, Final Voyage, The Beverly Hillbillies and Chasers. Lately, she has turned to reality television with appearances on The Real Gilligan’s Island and Celebrity Fit Club. She’s done quite well for herself as an actress and has an estimated net worth of $4 million.

14. Brooke Burns

Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. This woman is not only an actress, she’s also recognized as a television presenter and a fashion model. Her most notable career roles have been on the television series Baywatch and Baywatch Hawaii. Brooke has made a huge career on television starting with a big role on the show Out of the Blue and then her starring role on Baywatch. After that she got recurring roles on North Shore, Hole in the Wall, Miss Guided, Melrose Place and appeared on CSI, Drop Dead Diva, and Just Shoot Me! She’s had many hosting gigs like Dog Eat Dog, The Chase, and Motor City Masters. Brooke has also appeared in some big feature films like Shallow Hal, Where Hope Grows and Urban Decay. Her ability to continue working and long career on Baywatch has earned her an estimated net worth of $3 million.


13. Billy Warlock

Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. To this day, Billy Warlock is best recognized as Eddie Kramer on the first three seasons of Baywatch and for reprising his role for the 2003 reunion television movie. He’s had quite a successful career as an actor, but mostly as a soap actor. His most profitable roles have been on Happy Days, Days of Our Lives, Baywatch, Baywatch Nights, General Hospital, As the World Turns, One Life to Live, and The Young and the Restless. He’s only had two big film roles which were Lovely But Deadly, Hotshot and Society, but none were that successful. His net worth is largely unknown most likely due to a lack of leading roles. He tends to take on smaller roles, bouncing from job to job. His net worth probably sits somewhere around $300 to $400 thousand.

11. Traci Bingham

Estimated Net Worth: $500 thousand. Traci began acting with small roles on television shows like Married…with Children and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. She’s also appeared in the film Demon Knight before joining the cast of Baywatch in 1995 for the biggest role of her career as Jordan Tate.

Traci began doing reality television stints on shows like The Surreal Life, Celebrity Big Brother, Celebrity Paranormal Project, The Surreal Life: Fame Games and on the game show, To Tell the Truth. As with many Baywatch stars, she’s also modeled for Playboy. Her lack of work has kept her net worth low, but she’s still doing okay with an estimated $500 thousand.

10. Gena Lee Nolin

Estimated Net Worth: $2 million. Gena Lee Nolin is best known for her time as one of Barker’s Beauties on The Price is Right back in the mid-90s and as Neely Capshaw on the Baywatch series. After her time on the popular talk show, she moved on to soap operas. She did a short stint on The Young and the Restless in the character of Sandy, a model, before moving onto Baywatch in ’95. She stayed with the series for three years and then quit to star on her own show called Sheena in 2000. She returned briefly to appear in the Baywatch TV movie in 2003. Gena’s done a few modeling stints in Maxim, Playboy, Stuff and FHM and in 2013 released a book called Beautiful Inside and Out, Conquering Thyroid Disease with a Healthy, Happy, ‘Thyroid Sexy’ Life, but the majority of her income comes from her time on Baywatch. Today she’s worth an estimated $2 million.


9. Michael Newman

Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Michael Newman was extremely unique to the series because he was the only person who appeared on the show who was an actual lifeguard. He was originally hired by the series to be a consultant, but ended up appearing on the show as a character under his real name. He stayed with the show throughout it’s entire time on the air as a recurring character, and eventually a regular cast member in 1996. He was hugely popular and even had his own fan club! After the show ended he gave up acting and got a job as a real estate agent. Back in 2011 he was diagnosed with Parkinson disease. Newman’s net worth is unknown, which isn’t surprising considering he hasn’t taken on any acting roles since Baywatch ended. His net worth is probably sitting in the low hundred thousands.

8. Carmen Electra

Estimated Net Worth: $16 million. This actress, model, TV personality, singer and dancer rose to fame after she moved to California and met Prince. She was recognized as a singer and even signed to Prince’s label, Paisely Park Records; however, it was her spread in Playboy that led to her television career on shows like Singled Out and Baywatch. She was on Baywatch from 1997 to 1998 as Lellani “Lani” McKenzie. She returned to the series in 2003 for the television movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. Carmen has done quite well for herself as an actress, she’s appeared in tons of films since ’97 like American Vampire, Scary Movie, Uptown Girls, Starsky & Hutch, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Scary Movie 4, and Good Burger. She’s also had many endorsement deals, modeling jobs and released her own book called, How to Be Sexy.

Carmen has been working in all areas of the entertainment industry to make her fortune, and her hard work has paid off! She’s now worth a whopping $16 million.


7. Alexandra Paul

Estimated Net Worth: $4 million. This actress is well known for her modeling and activism. Alexandra has appeared in over 80 films to this date! Some of these films were only television movies, but her most notable appearances have been feature films like Christine, 8 Million Ways to Die, Spy Hard, Tru Loved, The Paperboy and Sunset Grill. She’s done less work on television — her longest role was on Baywatch from 1992 to 1997 as Lieutenant Stephanie Holden. Before that she hadn’t done much, and afterwards she did a brief stint on Melrose Place and appeared on Mad Men, Baywatch Nights and She Spies. She has co-wrote and co-produced the documentaries, Jampacked and The Cost of Cool: Finding Happiness in a Materialistic World — both docs won awards. Paul still remains active with her acting work in films and doing guest appearances here and there, but she’s very focused on her activism work which hasn’t slowed her down because she’s still worth an estimated $4 million!


6. David Chokachi

Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. David’s first acting gig was appearing on Baywatch as Cody Madison from 1995 to 1999. Since then he’s done a few small films, but nothing major. After he left Baywatch, he took on the role of Jake McCartey in the television series, Witchblade, but the series only lasted until 2002. He hasn’t had much work since then, but rather done appearances on shows and made-for-TV movies. He did have one other main role on the television series Beyond the Break for 3 seasons, but other than that his career has fallen flat — it was at it’s peak during his time on Baywatch. His net worth is largely unknown due to his lack of work. He’s most likely sitting on a net worth of about $300 thousand.

5. Jeremy Jackson

Estimated Net Worth: $200 thousand. Jeremy Jackson has built his career off his character, Hobie Buchannon on Baywatch. It was one of his first acting roles and most definitely his only main casting. When he left the show in 1999, he appeared in several spin offs like Baywatch: White Thunder at Glacier Bay and Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. He then moved on to doing a lot of reality television and talk show appearances like VH1’s Confessions of a Teen Idol, Celebrity Big Brother and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Jackson to remain relevant, but his acting career hasn’t maintained the level of success he had when he was on Baywatch; this is partly due to a past drug addiction. The majority of his income was earned on Baywatch, and since then he’s been making money off odd reality appearances, leaving him with an estimated net worth of $200 thousand.

4. Yasmine Bleeth

Estimated Net Worth: $2 million. This American actress is most widely recognized for her role as Caroline Holden on Baywatch and Lee Anne Demerest on the soap series, One Life to Live. She’s done a few films in her career, but nothing major. She’s had three leading television roles, first on One Life To Live, then Baywatch and later as Inspector Caitlin Cross on Nash Bridges. She also starred in the show Titans and did many television movies. Oddly, her most recent television appearance was in 2003 for the Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. She had a run-in with the law in 2000 when she was arrested and forced to admit to a cocaine addiction. She was sentenced to two years probation and 1000 hours of community service after being pulled over for driving impaired and in possession of drugs and paraphernalia. Yasmine hasn’t worked since 2003. She’s focused on staying sober and her many starring roles on television has kept her net worth high at an estimated $2 million.

3. Nicole Eggert

Estimated Net Worth: $500 thousand. Nicole Eggert is most recognized as Jamie Powell in the series, Charles in Charge and as Summer Quinn on Baywatch. Eggert has been acting since she was only 8-years old! She started out in the movie Rich and Famous, but got bigger with a recurring role on Who’s The Boss? and was starring on Charles in Charge at only 15-years-old. A few years later she took on her Baywatch role and appeared on some other popular shows and a few Baywatch spin offs. She’s done some movies, but recently she’s only been appearing on reality shows to make a buck like What Not To Wear, Splash and Celebrity Fit Club. Her lack of acting jobs and leading roles has left her with a small income. In 2014 she ran into some financial problems and filed for bankruptcy, claiming to have around $1 million in assets, but around $800,000 in debts and that her monthly income was at $15,000 with monthly obligations at $16,000. Just last summer it was reported that she had to sell her L.A. home to pay off some more debts. She’s more likely in the negatives by the sounds of it, but her listed net worth is at $500 thousand.

2. David Hasselhoff

Estimated Net Worth: $110 million. David Hasselhoff also known as “The Hoff” is by far the most successful actor from Baywatch. He started off acting on The Young and the Restless, but his career quickly took off when he got a lead role on Knight Rider and when he settled into another leading role on Baywatch, eventually taking on the role of producing the show when NBC dropped it from the network. He followed the show through to the end doing all the major spin offs, but hasn’t done much television acting since. He’s appeared himself on a spew of reality shows and done celebrity cameos. He’s appeared in many films like EuroTrip, Click, Ted 2, Legacy and Dodgeball. He had a brief music career that took off in Europe and even had some of his own series like Hoff the Record and the David Hasselhoff Show. Today he’s not taking on any lead acting roles anymore, but sticking to appearances which is quite fine because he’s worth an estimated $110 million!
