Early life

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


Like her former husband, David Hasselhoff, Bach receives more attention in Europe than she does in America, and is one of the recipients of the annual Bravo 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

Bach met David Hasselhoff on the set of the Knight Rider episode "Knight Racer" in 1985.[2] They married in December 1989, and in January 2006, Hasselhoff announced he was filing for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.[6] Their divorce was finalized in August 2006.[1] The couple have two daughters: Taylor Ann Hasselhoff,[7] who attended the University of Arizona and was cast for the 2015 season of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, and actress Hayley Hasselhoff.[8] Bach was given custody of one daughter and Hasselhoff custody of the other.[9][1] Both appeared on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless, though not at the same time: Pamela as Mari Jo Mason #1 in 1994 and David as Dr. Snapper Foster #2 between 1975 and 1982.
