A native of Duluth, Minnesota, Gena Lee
Nolin and her family moved to Las Vegas for her senior year in high
school. At the recommendation of friends, she entered and won the Miss
Las Vegas contest. She quickly gained the attention of several modeling
agencies, winning the Ford Agency and Elite Agency regional "Look
of the Year" contests and the Miss Barbizon USA national title.
After graduation, Gena headed to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Like many aspiring actors, she paid her dues waiting tables at places
like The Larry Parker Diner. She also attended Santa Monica college
where she studied interior design.
In 1994, Gena saw an ad in the paper for The Price Is Right. At the
cattle-call audition, she beat out hundreds of others, winning a spot as
one of the game show's showcase models. "It was a great job. We
would work three days a week, filming two shows a day with a ten day
break every two weeks. It allowed me time to continue with my studies
Nolin appeared on "The Young & The Restless," playing the
part of a young model named Sandy. In addition to her role on "Baywatch,"
Gena can be seen doing guest commentary on the popular entertainment
magazine show, "Extra!" She also recently hosted a USA Network
Special "The 50th Anniversary of the Bikini."
Entertainment Tonight was on hand to tape Gena's surprise when it was
announced that she was the newest member of the Baywatch cast. The
25-year-old former model was reading with star David Hasselhoff when he
held up an inner tube saying 'Surprise! You got the part.' "I saw
this inner tube out of the corner of my eye, but I just kept reading my
sides until someone yelled 'read the tube.' I was stunned," she
says. When not on the set of Baywatch, Gena Lee Nolin enjoys gardening
at her home in West Los Angeles which she shares with her husband, Greg
Falhman , her cat Milo and her cocker spaniel Clifford.
Gena Lee Nolin combines the charm of "the girl next door" with
the sophistication of "the girl seen around the world" to
bring you her new swimsuit calendar. Gena met her husband, Greg Fahlman,
while handing out leaflets at a trade show in Las Vegas! The couple
married in Las Vegas in November 1993.
