Then + Now: Nicole Eggert from ‘Charles in Charge’ + ‘Baywatch’
You know Nicole Eggert — she starred on ‘Charles in Charge’ as Jamie Powell in the last few seasons, and then she moved on to become a ‘Baywatch’ babe in the ’90s, but what’s she up to now?
Nicole Eggert starred on ‘Who’s the Boss’ as Marci, a friend of Samantha’s, before landing a bigger gig as Jamie on ‘Charles in Charge’ in 1987. She played the role until the show was canceled three years later, and then she won a prime spot on ‘Baywatch’ as one of the many babe-alicious lifeguards. She was even supposed to be on a ‘Baywatch’ spin-off, but it never came to fruition.
Nicole has spent much of the past decade earning checks from reality shows. In 2004, she played the role of Ginger on the TBS reality show ‘The Real Gilligan’s Island’ and later went on to appear on the VH1 reality series ‘Scott Baio is 45 … and Single’ with her ‘Charles in Charge’ co-star Scott Baio.
Eggert stuck around VH1 to compete on ‘Celebrity Fit Club,’ and in 2010, she participated in the Comedy Central Roast of former ‘Baywatch’ co-star David Hasselhoff. This year, she competed on the ABC celebrity diving show ‘Splash,’ where she came in second place.
