When Baywatch executive producer David Hasselhoff offered the role of lifeguard C. J. Parker to Pamela Anderson, Anderson was immediately attracted to the role because of the "New Age thinking" that she shared with the character, including an interest in crystals, meditation, and dream interpretation. In the Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding reunion movie, C. J. reveals her biggest interest is in meditation.
The film portrayal of C.J. was met with a mixed-to-negative reception from fans as many believed that Anderson’s successor, Kelly Rohrbach, failed to do the role justice.
