Anyone who dons Baywatch’s iconic bright red bathing suit knows this garment is nearly synonymous with being the center of attention (it is a lifeguard uniform, after all) – especially if you’re an actress filling the shoes of Pamela Anderson as character C.J. Parker. Blonde bombshell Kelly Rohrbach is no stranger to the spotlight, having dated one of Hollywood’s heaviest hitters while undoubtedly maintaining a strong foothold on her own merits.
Once linked to Leonardo DiCaprio, the 27-year-old Georgetown University grad Rohrbach now puts her arms around another megastar, but in a totally different sense. Applying the hashtags #TheRockinAHeadlock and #IGotHim, Rohrbach is actually lovingly sending her co-star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, birthday wishes.
In anticipation of Baywatch’s release on May 25, the cast is encouraging fans to partake in the #SlowMotionChallenge, basically meaning do anything you feel like as long as it’s in slow motion, for a chance to win tickets to the film’s Miami premiere.
Because the 🐢 always wins.! Post a video of yourself doing anything, well maybe not anything 😉, in slow motion and I think (???) you win free tickets the Miami premiere! @therock mentioned something about the winner touching @zacefron abs. So it’s either abs or tickets, you choose! #IChooseTheAbs #slowmotionchallenge
While Rohrbach pretty much automatically wins (she is, after all, a hot babe running on the beach), co-star Zac Efron offers his spin by jumping with The Rock lending a shoulder and statuesquely posing.
Here’s the juice: To WIN send me your Best #SlowMoChallenge vid! I’ll fly you and your friend to Miami for our #BAYWATCH WORLD PREMIERE! Send me your funniest, most creative videos using the iconic #BAYWATCH slow motion effect. I’m personally judging these, so bring your sexy slow mo game. The premiere is MAY 13th! Our #BAYWATCH stars can’t wait to meet you. Except me, because I’m a selfish asshole who hates sharing the spotlight, but whatevs. Click the link in my bio for info. Remember everything is better in slo mo… Let’s have some fun… #BAYWATCH #SlowMoChallenge #BringIt 🤙🏾
Meanwhile, Rohrbach is getting everyone pumped for the summer, officated by her June ‘17 Cosmopolitan cover, which captures her looking great in a Baywatch-approved swimsuit.
While it’s one thing for Rohrbach to choose to rock a one-piece in the the public eye (and for a movie role), it’s entirely another when exposure is a result of a total violation. Rumors have been circulating that Rohrbach is the latest victim of a yet another photo hack; perpetrators are said to have hacked Rohrbach’s personal photos, posting lingerie shots online and needless to say, invasively violating Rohrbach’s privacy. Let’s hope Rohrbach will seamlessly surf the scandal, and to quote The Rock’s many catchphrases, tell the hackers to “Just Bring It.”
