7. Pamela Anderson

Notable projects: Home Improvement (TV series, 1991-1993), Baywatch (1992-1997)

If you haven’t noticed yet, this countdown isn’t preoccupied with such trivial matters as acting talents and impressive role choices—there’s a time and a place for that, and it’s not now, nor here. Rather, it’s a superficial party, gents, and the guest of honor at this moment is Pamela Anderson, one of the game’s all-time knockout champions. Sure, her performances in Baywatch were barely steps above watching busty mannequins walk and talk, and 1996’s Barb Wire is a comic book travesty. But just try staring at any random Pamela Anderson bikini shot without getting stiffer than rigor mortis.
