Carmen Electra has taken thousands of showers in her lifetime, but something about those “Baywatch” showers just hit differently. The actress and supermodel took to Instagram on Thursday afternoon while reminiscing about the past, including her feelings about getting so fresh and so clean with her fellow lifeguards on the legendary TV series. Any fan of “Baywatch” will tell you that most of the action went down away from the beach when the lifeguards stripped down and showered up for some of the show’s most memorable moments.
Electra was a series regular on “Baywatch” from 1997-1998 and played the role of Lani McKenzie. Lani became a fan-favorite when she joined up with Mitch Buchannon and the other L.A. County Lifeguards. With dreams of bright lights and wanting to become a dancer, Lani thought working as a lifeguard would fund her life until her big break. The writer was smart to include Lani’s dancing background, as it was perfect for Carmen Electra to highlight her own talents in the organic fashion.
Taking to Instagram, Carmen Electra shared a few scenes from her own famous moments in the “Baywatch” showers.
“That Baywatch shower moment,” the star captioned the steamy shots of Lani toweling off.
Although Electra had some hot scenes in the showers, she didn’t crack the top list that “Baywatch” put together of their best shower moments.
The top honors didn’t go to any slouches, however, as Electra’s co-stars, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth and Alexandra Paul were featured in many of the long-running series’ top moments.
It’s not the first time Electra has reflected on her iconic “Baywatch” role in recent days, as she has spent much of quarantine reflecting on her illustrious career.
During a recent Instagram post, Electra spoke about the progression of women in Hollywood compared to that of a decade ago.
“This was a time when u would be judged for having-a thicker body ! It’s beautiful to see how things have changed & all shapes & sizes are loved ❤️?? lovin the ladies ❤️ keep it up,” Electra wrote.
Although Carmen Electra’s career has taken many twists and turns since the days of slo-mo running on the beach in Malibu, she will always hold a special place in her heart for the red swimsuit.
“When I joined the cast of Baywatch, it was already the number one show around the world. My life changed overnight. I was excited and nervous but really grateful to be part of a show that I also believe is a cult classic,” Electra said years back in an interview about the experience.
