David Hasselhoff is known to today’s generation, (if they know him at all), as a reality show fixture, or the a star of an autobiographical sitcom about a washed-up actor, or just that shirtless guy who ate a burger off a bathroom floor.

But millennials today might be surprised to learn that the late-night TV punchline once was a bona fide TV star, and even a heartthrob. And today, we’re going to take a look back at the Baywatch and Knight Rider star’s glory years, with this selection of excellent beefcake photos from the 1980’s.

Hope you like chest hair!
