Pamela Anderson wasn't the only hunka-hunka burning love to strut off the "Baywatch" beach into popular culture. For the ladies, there was David Hasselhoff, who is now trying to sell his Encino home for $5.95 million.

Hasselhoff, 56, has listed his 9,770-square-foot home that has five bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms. The private estate is entered through double gates. There's a two-story living room with high ceilings, lavish dining room, gourmet kitchen and a master bedroom suite with a fireplace and mahogany floors. There are his-and-her bathrooms and walk-in closets. The home has a gym and an elevator, which would seem to serve cross purposes. A grotto-style pool with a waterfall and spa, as well as lighted tennis courts, complete the playground.

The actor, who played Lt. Mitch Buchannon for 221 episodes of "Baywatch" from 1989 to 2000, also re-created the role for the various Baywatch spinoffs and movies. Let's face it: Some people just look good running down the beach with a boogie board under their arm.

His non-beachy credits include roles in "Fugitives Run" (2003) and "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" (2004).

Shayn Scott of Sotheby's International Realty, Sunset Boulevard office, has the listing.
