Acting on television
Bingham began her career in minor acting roles. Aside from Baywatch, Bingham's appearances include the television series D.R.E.A.M. Team and Beverly Hills, 90210, and the film Demon Knight. She also played minor roles in the popular American sitcoms The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Married... with Children.
Bingham has appeared on a number of reality television programs. In 2004 she was in the second series of The Surreal Life. Her cast mates included Ron Jeremy, Vanilla Ice, Erik Estrada, Tammy Faye Bakker and Trishelle Cannatella. Two years later, she flew to England to appear in Celebrity Big Brother where she made it to the final six contestants and was evicted on the final night of the show. She befriended Maggot, the rapper from Goldie Looking Chain, but was ridiculed by the singer Pete Burns. She selected Families of SMA as the charity to receive a donation from her participation in the show because her niece had died from Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). In 2007, Bingham appeared on VH1's The Surreal Life: Fame Games and won the $100,000 Goldenpalace.net Grand Prize. In 2008, Bingham appeared on Fox Reality's Gimme My Reality Show! competing with six other celebrities to get their own reality show.
Bingham has posed for Playboy Magazine on a number of occasions. In June 1998, she posed for a "Babes of Baywatch" issue along with Donna D'Errico, Marliece Andrada, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Carmen Electra, Gena Lee Nolin, and Erika Eleniak. In 2005, Bingham was hired as a spokesmodel by Empire Poker, an online gambling site.
In 2014 a California court entered an over $180,000.00 judgment against Bingham for failing to honor a XXX adult pornography contract. In the contract Bingham agreed to the following:
"Player (Traci Bingham) and Male Model progress from a state of full dress to varying stages of undress and sexual arousal culminating in total nudity by Player and Male Model while posing in a variety of sexual positions, defined and directed at Producer’s discretion and ranging from foreplay to intercourse, culminating in an actual sexual climax by Male Model on Player’s face. Climax is defined as an orgasm accompanied by the sensation of ejaculation of semen by the Male Model’s erect penis. Player agrees to pose for what is commonly referred to in Erotica as a “facial”. Facial is defined as Male Model ejaculating with his erect penis onto Player’s face as Player has an open mouth with her tongue extended out. Player agrees to pose for 2 (two) facials. The first facial will occur as the final pose/shot of the Photo Set, and the second will take place within 1 (one) hour after completion of the first facial."
The contract is with niche Austrian company hotchicksonly.com
