I was never much of a Baywatch fan but the few times I did tune in to watch the show, Brande Roderick did a fine job of keeping me from changing the channel.
In 2000, Roderick starred as Leigh Dyer on Baywatch and later that year, she was named the Playboy Playmate of the Month for April. In 2001, Roderick became the Playmate of the Year, the only Baywatch cast member to be achieve the honor.
In 2003, she starred in the Bollywood movie Out of Control, a role that had been originally intended for Pamela Anderson, a former Baywatch cast member and a fellow Playboy model.
Roderick has also landed roles in Starsky & Hutch, Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror and The Nanny Diaries. In addition, she has guest-starred on several television series including Joey, The Parkers, Just Shoot Me!, Fear Factor and Beverly Hills 90210.
Roderick is also a Girl of RPS for the USA Rock Paper Scissors League. In 2006, Roderick was one of six celebrity contestants on the CBS summer series, Gameshow Marathon. She was the runner-up to Kathy Najimy.
In 2009, she appeared in the second season of Celebrity Apprentice but was eliminated along with fellow contestant Jesse James from the final four.
Roderick celebrated her 35th birthday on June 13 and at one time dated Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner.
In August 2006, she became engaged to Glenn Cadrez, a former NFL linebacker who played 11 seasons for the Denver Broncos, the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs. The couple married in June 2007.
Unlike some of the other Playboy Playmates I’ve featured recently, Roderick has a nice collection of images I could share. But while the very best can’t be seen in the gallery below, I uploaded a zip file which includes her Playboy layouts.
