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 at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. She moved to Los Angeles in 1985.[2][3]


Like her ex-husband, David Hasselhoff, Bach receives more attention in Europe than she does in America,[citation needed] and is one of the recipients of the yearly 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 a Knight Rider episode[2] and they married on December 9, 1989. The two divorced on July 26, 2006. They had two daughters together: Taylor Ann Hasselhoff (born May 5, 1990) and actress Hayley Amber Hasselhoff (born August 26, 1992). Hasselhoff obtained custody of the children in the divorce.[1] Both appeared on the long running CBS Daytime drama The Young and the Restless, though not at the same time; Pamela as Mari Jo Mason #1 (1994) and David as Dr. Snapper Foster #2 (1975–82).
