'Baywatch' stars recall contract weight clause

Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY

David Hasselhoff led a Baywatch reunion on Entertainment Tonight, bringing the cast together after 25 years.

The Hoff's daughter, Taylor, who appeared on Baywatch as a kid, was on hand, too.

One of the more interesting revelations from the interview was that Traci Bingham and Nicole Eggert mentioned that all the actors on the show had a weight clause in their contracts.

"If you did anything to gain or lose weight, etc., you were in trouble," says Bingham.

Added Eggert, "[There] was a five-pound fluctuation. You couldn't go up or down."

Weight clauses and morality clauses aren't unusual in Hollywood. But hearing stars talk about them is rare.

Also interviewed on the show were Parker Stevenson, Erika Eleniak, Brande Roderick, Gena Lee Nolin, David Chokachi, and Jaason Simmons. Pamela Anderson couldn't make it.
