The Hoff worked with some of the hottest women in the world back in his Baywatch days, but who was his favorite? He made his decision based on more than just looks.

David Hasselhoff may have been the envy of every guy on Earth in the 1990s during his time on Baywatch, because of the numbers of hot women he got to work with. Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Traci Bingham and Donna D'Errico were among the rotating cast of lifeguards who appeared over the years of the show's run.

The Hoff sat down with Access Hollywood and was asked who was his favorite of all of them. Though that's not an easy task for anyone, his answer was slightly surprising. He told the hosts that his favorite Baywatch girl was actually Carmen Electra.

"She's my favorite," he said. "She's got the most beautiful eyes. She's like one of the guys, she hangs out, she doesn't look like one of the guys, but she's cool... she just goes with the flow."

He said besides just her personality and looks, she was one of the most professional actresses he had the chance to work with and might be one of the only ones who would actually make it as a lifeguard.

"She always knew her lines," he said, via Yahoo! "[And was] ready to go jump in the water. There are so many girls on Baywatch that couldn't swim."

While Electra isn't up to much these days, Hasselhoff has been staying busy. He is starring in an upcoming holiday movie, The Christmas Consultant, alongside Caroline Rhea. Rhea may be best known as one of the aunts on the TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and she also lends her voice to multiple characters on the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb. Hasselhoff has a few other small films in the works as well, but his only recent notable part was in 2011 on Sons of Anarchy.

Hasselhoff also spoke to Access Hollywood about proposing to his fiancee "multiple times" before she finally said yes.

The Christmas Consultant will premiere on Lifetime on Nov. 10.
