Carmen Electra is so much more than just the Baywatch babe in the red one-piece that many of us grew up with.
The actress revealed in 2016 that martial art is actually in her blood — so much so that she and fighter Ronda Rousey sparred at her house a few years back.
What season was Carmen Electra in Baywatch?
She became a sex symbol playing the role of Lani McKenzie in the television drama series Baywatch.

Carmen wore an extremely sheer glitter bodycon dress from House of CB, which revealed her tiny underwear underneath — nothing we haven’t seen before.

The bombshell paired her dress with Christian Louboutin’s “Lady Peep” pumps (we’re sure the pun was not intended) in black patent.
Carmen revealed that her mother was a black belt holder in jiu-jitsu and that she had wanted to learn martial arts as a young girl.

However, her mother encouraged her to become a dancer instead — but that didn’t stop her from learning a move or two.
