Fitness video: Baywatch – Beach Body Workout (2007)
Damn, we didn’t realize people still use the Baywatch brand to sell shit. But, lo and behold, in 2007, the show’s producers teamed up with ex-The Price Is Right model Lauren Jones for the release of Baywatch – Beach Body Workout.
Watching a clip really does make us reminisce about those sexy Barker’s Beauties. Jones would have been fantastic on Baywatch, too. She has that perfect blend of hotness, blonde hair, big breasts, and vapidness one needed to stand alongside The Hoff.
