Kelly Rohrbach Suits Up For Baywatch Reboot

Move over, Pamela Anderson! There’s a new blonde bombshell on the beach. Kelly Rohrbach brought the heat as she stepped out in costume on the Miami set of the upcoming big-screen comedic reboot of the popular 90s TV series, Baywatch.

The Sports Illustrated model, who’s taking on Pamela’s role of sexy lifeguard C.J. Parker, slipped into an updated version of the iconic one-piece red swimsuit made famous by the original Baywatch babes.

The new iteration of the classic bathing suit boasts a gold zipper down the front with white lettering on its racer-style back. The high-cut design showed off Kelly’s killer legs, reminiscent of the original suits that had viewers drooling, and guaranteed to make the actress’s ex Leonardo Dicaprio think twice about the one who got away.

Kelly was joined on set by co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who is playing the lead role of Mitch Buchannon, replacing David Hasselhoff. Die-hard fans can rest easy though since it has been confirmed that The Hoff will be making a cameo appearance in the film. Dwayne announced David’s casting on Facebook, saying, “I don’t know if the world is ready for both of us.” Scheduled for release in 2017, the Baywatch movie is being directed by Seth Gordon and also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Priyanka Chopra.

Though the original series is probably remembered most for its campiness and the slow-motion shots of its sultry stars jogging down the beach, the soap opera covered many serious issues during its 11-season run, including the life-saving responsibilities of beach lifeguards. According to a study conducted by the United States Lifesaving Association, the change of drowning at a beach protected by lifeguards trained under USLA standards is less than one in 18 million per year.
