A native of Canada, Pamela Anderson was born on Vancouver Island, and later moved to the city of Vancouver. It was while she attended a British Columbia Lions football game that Anderson was "discovered" in a most unusual way. Dressed in a Labatt's Beer T-shirt, her image was transmitted on the stadium's wide screen. The fans cheered the beautiful girl, and she was brought down to the 50-yard line and introduced to the appreciative crowd. As a result, she was signed to a commercial contract with Labatt's and became the company's Blue Zone girl. The campaign was so popular that other commercials and advertising assignments for Anderson soon followed.
Pamela Anderson moved to Los Angeles where she spent two seasons in the top-ten ABC Television hit series Home Improvement as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl. It was on Home Improvement that she captured the attention and affection of viewing audiences nationwide. At the same time, Anderson was cast as C.J. Parker on the internationally successful series Baywatch, but because of the impossible scheduling requirements of working on two hit shows, she eventually left Home Improvement and remained full-time on Baywatch. She now stars on one of the most phenomenally popular television programs of all time, which is seen in 140 countries worldwide.
