Personality and Abilities

Lt. Stephanie Holden (played by Alexandra Paul) is a beautiful character from the Baywatch series that is renowned for her incredible intellect, great sense of humor, as well as her steadfast loyalty and devotion to her friends. Although she suffers in the show from severe Corcoranophobia (a fear of helicopters), this issue doesn’t cause her any problems with her other lifeguard duties, as she is a highly-gifted swimmer and diver. Combined with her organizational skills and ability to manage, she is an incredible asset to the Baywatch lifeguard team.

Appearance

In regard to Stephanie’s appearance, she is best-described as a tall and athletic character with short brown hair and dazzling hazel eyes.

Characterized as the ex-wife of Mitch Buchannon, Neely is often seen as the “black sheep” of the lifeguard team due to her personality and prior history. Although she is considered extremely hard-working, intelligent, and devoted to her duties, Neely is also quite selfish, manipulative, and conniving which leads to animosity between her and the other lifeguards. In spite of this, she is an excellent swimmer and runner, and is regularly seen as one of the fittest lifeguards on Baywatch. For these reasons, she is an extremely valuable asset to the team, as her abilities make her well-suited for rescue duties.

She is also quite tall for a woman (standing approximately 5’10”), and possesses a curvaceous body that is highlighted by wide hips, a large bust, and toned rear.

Characterized as extremely brave, strong, and devoted to the lifeguard cause, Caroline was always prepared (and ready) for whatever challenges lied ahead for her and the Baywatch team throughout the show. And while she can be extremely stubborn (to a fault) and self-centered, these deficiencies do not detract from her overall lifeguard skills as she takes great pride in her physical fitness and training. Under the guidance of her older sister, Caroline eventually becomes a vital component to the Baywatch crew.

Appearance

In regard to her overall appearance, Caroline is an extremely sexy character that is renowned for her shapely body. Although she is significantly shorter than her sister (Lt. Holden), she makes up for her short stature with a large bust, well-toned body, wide hips, and a large rear.

As such, she was regularly classified as one of the most athletic members of the Baywatch team, as well as one of the team’s best swimmers and divers.
