Added DiffLines:

** Kelly Slater never really wanted to be an actor, and only did ''Baywatch'' because his manager convinced him it'd be a career boost. In a 2014 interview, he revealed that he frequently clashed with the writers over the quality of the scripts, which was one of the reasons he eventually asked to be written out of the show for good.
** While not ''quite'' as negative as some of the other cast members, Jason Momoa has said that the show's cheesy reputation really hurt his career and made it very difficult for him to find work for a long time.
