When Chumlee spots two red, one-piece bathing suits with high-cut thighs, he knows exactly what he’s discovered. “‘Baywatch,’ ooh,” he says, moving through a sea of items to get a closer look.
Soon after, he finds Klein, who is there to help determine the value of anything Rick wants to buy. When Chumlee quickly directs Rick’s attention to the ‘Baywatch’ bathing suits, it’s easy to see that in his mind, they are priceless. While it’s impossible to get a camera lens into his head, he’s probably reminiscing about scenes featuring rescues in the water, Pamela Anderson and Yasmine Bleeth, and some trademark slo-mo running on the beach.
“I’m a ‘Baywatch’ fan, you know, that opening sequence is a teenager’s dream,” Chumlee said. There is no question he wants those suits. But it all comes down to price for Rick. How much is teenage nostalgia worth to the owner?
