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.

Lol, people were so confused WTH is David Hasselhoff doing in our neck of the woods. Walking around our little old mall half of us don't shop there. And out at our watering hole. Man times must be hard.

Um, I think Joe Blow needs to blow back to where he came from. For real man, let the average joe have a moment. If you are soo disappointed in TMZ then what are you doing on their website? Are people not allowed to have fun anymore in this country? Really?

David Hasselhoff has rights to say what many celebrities never will. He has claim to a very long and outstanding career doing what he loves. I heard that Baywatch is one of the most worldwide watched shows ever. Too many of the current "celebrities" are famous for doing absolutely nothing or "singing" with an electronically synthesized voice just so they can manage to hit a note. This guy has sung on Broadway! And, he does a lot of work for charities. I think it is awsome when celebrities and even regular people reach out to help others. People like that should be acknowledged for their efforts and true hearts.

The Hoff really was in Texas!!! Brazoria County to be exact!!!Sorry to disappoint Harvey, but he was not out climbing poles & getting electrocuted. He went to our local mall (Brazos Mall) in Lake Jackson & sold Girl Scout cookies then later on that evening he went to a local bar (Kicks) to dance & even performed a couple of songs. He was very friendly & sign lotsa autographs. He even signed my boobies!!! :) Got all the pictures/videos to prove it 2!!! May not be a big deal to all you "city folks" but it was to us "country folks". The Hoff is welcomed back anytime to Texas & we'll all teach him how to Two Step!!!

Yes, he is from my home town and I think it's awesome that he was able to live like a celeb! If you don't think that's cool then you're just jealous that it wasn't you.
Plus, did you notice how he said "yes sir"? In Texas we still have respect and manners...

I thought it was a cute show..no one was killed, raped, or pillaged and both Davids were nice guys.
Got a kick out of the shower scene where DH/LA couldn't get his hair wet.Don't know if the ensuing episodes will be enjoyable, but this one was a nice break. :)
