Hasselhoff SHOCKER

I'm Not Who You Think I Am

2/17/2011 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

David Hasselhoff NEVER starred in "Baywatch" ... and if you ask him what he does for a living, he'll tell you he's a power tech from Texas ... but here's the craziest part -- he ain't lying.

Here's the deal -- the bald guy who ate at Geisha House in Hollywood last night is ALSO named David Hasselhoff ... but he's a power technician from Texas.

Turns out ... Bald Hoff and German pop star Hoff are switching lives for a new CBS reality show -- in which celebs trade places with normal people who happen to share the same name.

So while this Hoff is living in the "Baywatch" star's L.A. mansion and eating at fancy restaurants ... the Knight Rider Hoff is trudging around Texas somewhere, probably getting electrocuted.

So the real David Hasselhoff is in Brazoria Texas. Saw him at the mall yesterday and he went out to a bar later that night. Everyone was wondering what he was doing here and now it makes sense. If I see him again I will try and take some pictures for TMZ.

All of you who think this sounds stupid are just jealous you don't have the same name as a celebrity so you can go live it up in LA while they do YOUR boring day to day mundane doings... LOL

I don't know who most of "young Hollywood" is, but David Hasselhoff (either one)is certainly part of old and boring Hollywood.

Seriously! The bald hoff in LA right now is my cousin. I'm glad that my average joe cousin got to do this. This is an experience of a lifetime, it doesn't matter who the celeb is. I guess if it were Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp it wouldn't be sooo stupid. Well, I hope you're having a blast my cuz. You know you have to come back to your average joe life soon. Your wife and baby boy miss you. Love you!
