Who is Nicole Eggert?

Nicole is a 50-year-old actress and producer, who is best known for playing Jamie Powell on comedy Charles in Charge. She also guest-starred on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! and Boy Meets World, and created several Christmas films.

The star became used to having cameras around her from childhood. Aged five, Nicole was Miss Universe in the petite division, before an agent saw her and offered her parents a role for her in a Johnson’s baby shampoo commercial!

She is also notably recognised for being a 2010 contestant on the VH1 reality show Celebrity Fit Club, and came in second in 2013 on ABC’s celebrity diving show Splash. Ironic, due to her lifeguarding class on The Bachelor…

Born in California, Nicole had already landed a role in the movie Rich and Famous by the age of eight.

Nicole’s Baywatch ’90s appearance

Nicole is best known for playing Roberta “Summer” Quinn on Baywatch, from 1992 to 1994. She appeared on 44 episodes as a series regular, from Season 3 to 4.

As reported by Insider, she decided to leave as she felt “unhappy” with the way the show was affecting her reputation. Nicole was just 17 years old when she joined the show, having started a life in showbiz from an early age.

She was also a star on its TV movie Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding and not long ago, produced a documentary called Baywatch: The American Dream, released in 2020.

She was previously engaged to Canadian actor Corey Haim, who she starred alongside in three films: Blown AwayThe Double 0 Kid and Anything for Love, back in the ’90s.

In almost a complete U-turn away from the cameras, she is now running her own ice cream truck business. Nicole actually announced the news in a Tweet, explaining she would be the one driving the Scoops company truck.
