Best known as: Caroline Holden on the series Baywatch
A former model and soap opera actress, Yasmine Bleeth hit the big time when she joined the cast of the beach-happy series Baywatch in 1994. Her swimsuit-clad appearances as lifeguard Caroline Holden made her a hit on TV and the Internet, and in 1995 People magazine named her one of its "50 Most Beautiful People." Known more for her brunette and buxom looks than for her acting, Bleeth made various TV appearances and had a comical part in the movie BASEketball (1998). In 2000 she co-starred in the short-lived Aaron Spelling TV series Titans. She was arrested and charged with cocaine possession in 2001, and the next year pleaded guilty and was sentenced to parole and community service.
Extra credit: Bleeth married businessman Paul Cerrito in 2002; they met while she was undergoing drug rehab at the Promises clinic in California.
