We all know that David Hasselhoff is an international superstar across all genres of music, television and film. But, how will he do on the dancefloor?
Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Watched TV Star in the World,” Hasselhoff got his start in entertainment on the popular soap opera The Young and the Restless and was quickly pursued to play the lead role of the 1980’s cult favorite Knight Rider. But his rise to fame catapulted when he starred in the television phenomenon Baywatch. The series ran for 11 years and is still viewed in 140 countries by over one billion viewers every week.
Throughout his extraordinary television career, Hasselhoff has also appeared in feature films such as Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Adam Sandler’s Click. Off screen, he has recorded multiple albums, one that has gone triple platinum, starred in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, in London’s West End production of Chicago, and The Producers in Las Vegas. Most recently, Hasselhoff was honored by Comedy Central with The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff which premiered as one of the top-rated comedy roasts on the network.
Not only is Hasselhoff a multi-faceted talent but he is also a writer of an autobiography titled Don’t Hassel The Hoff, which made the UK Best Seller list re-titled as Making Waves and debuted at #8 in Austria on the non-fiction charts. Beyond his entertainment contributions, Hasselhoff is the co-founder of “Race for Life” and an active participant in Wounded Warriors and Wheels for Humanity.
