Pamela Bach (born Pamela Ann Weissenbach; October 16, 1963), also known as Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff,[1] is an American actress.

Early life[edit]

Bach is from Tulsa, Oklahoma, the second of three daughters. Her mother was a model, and she also modeled as a teenager. She attended Tulsa East Central High School and studied engineering/Theatre Arts at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. She moved to Los Angeles in 1985.[2][3]


Like her former husband, David Hasselhoff, Bach receives more attention in Europe than she does in America,[citation needed] and is one of the recipients of the annual Bravo Otto award as one of German teens' favourite actresses.[4] This is an award given by the German teen magazine Bravo. She worked together with her husband on the long-running series Baywatch and she had a recurring role as a psychologist in the series Sirens.[3] She participated in the 2011 UK reality TV show/competition Celebrity Big Brother and was in the house from August 18–31, 2011. She was the second celebrity to be evicted from the house, being evicted on Day 14.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Bach met David Hasselhoff on the set of the Knight Rider episode Knight Racer in 1985.[2] They married in December 1989, and in January 2006, Hasselhoff announced he was filing for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.[6] Their divorce was finalized in August 2006.[1] The couple have two daughters: Taylor Ann Hasselhoff, born May 5, 1990,[7] who attended the University of Arizona and was cast for the 2015 season of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, and actress Hayley Hasselhoff, born August 26, 1992.[8] Bach was given custody of one daughter and Hasselhoff custody of the other.[9][1] Both appeared on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless, though not at the same time: Pamela as Mari Jo Mason #1 in 1994 and David as Dr. Snapper Foster #2 between 1975 and 1982.
