David Hasselhoff, Baywatch – $4 Million
Baywatch wasn’t the greatest TV show ever, but that did not stop it from becoming a cultural phenomenon. In the process, the show also launched the career of Pamela Anderson, who went on to become one of the world’s most popular models. Of course, none other than David Hasselhoff led the cast, often shirtless, as Mitch.
While Baywatch earns few reruns these days, that doesn’t mean that Hasselhoff doesn’t make considerable cash from the hit series. In fact, the actor takes homes about $4 million a year thanks to his beach patrolling role. What’s more, Hasselhoff also made a few dollars off a cameo appearance in the 2017 movie Baywatch, starring Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
