When Baywatch executive producer David Hasselhoff offered the role of lifeguard C.J. Parker to Pamela Anderson, Anderson was immediately attracted to the role because of the "New Age thinking" that she shared with the character, including an interest in crystals, meditation, and dream interpretation. [3] [4] [5] In the Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding reunion movie, C.J. reveals her biggest interest is in meditation.

Pamela later reprised her role for appearances in commercials and other Baywatch themed media such as DirecTV.

C.J. had a largely different personality in the feature film adaptation, in which she was a down-to-earth but blunt person. She also engaged in a romantic relationship with new recruit, Ronnie.


C.J. Parker was well received during the run of Baywatch, being voted one of the best 11 blondes in entertainment by UGO. [6]
