Jared Victor Hennegan (born August 5, 1971), better known by the stage name "Evil" Jared Hasselhoff, is an American musician, songwriter, and actor. He is best known for being the bassist of Bloodhound Gang.
As a member of the musical group Bloodhound Gang, Hasselhoff is an Echo award winner and was twice honored with the prestigious Comet award.
Hasselhoff currently stars as himself in a recurring role on the ProSieben television series Circus HalliGalli as well as its partner shows Duell um die Welt and Mein Bester Feind.
In 2006, Hasselhoff moved to Berlin, Germany, due to his resentment of George W. Bush's politics. He stated that he would not return to the United States as long as Bush was in charge. He was in a relationship with German actress Sina-Valeska Jung from 2006 to 2012.
Hasselhoff suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder, and has asked for his requested Skittles to be separated by color on at least one rider while on tour. According to his episode of MTV Cribs, he also suffers from irritable bowel syndrome. He is also the tallest Bloodhound Gang member, standing at 6'5" (196 cm). He is of half-African-American descent through his father.
In 2013, Ukraine banned Hasselhoff from entering the country for five years after he appeared to urinate on the Ukrainian flag at a concert in Kiev. A few days later, the band was due to perform at Russia's Kubana Festival on the Black Sea coast, but the gig did not go ahead. Instead, they were questioned by police and were ordered to leave Russia.
