A native of Duluth, Minnesota, Gena Lee Nolin and her family moved to Las Vegas for her senior year in high school. Nolin also attended Santa Monica college where she studied interior design.

After graduation, she headed to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Like many aspiring actors, she paid her dues waiting tables at places like The Larry Parker Diner.

At the recommendation of friends, Nolin entered and won the Miss Las Vegas contest and quickly gained the attention of several modeling and talent agencies, winning the Ford Model Agency and Elite Modeling Agency regional "Look of the Year" contests and the Miss Barbizon USA national title.

In 1994, Gena Nolin responded to an ad in the paper for "The Price Is Right" game show. At the audition, she beat out thousands of other hopwfulls, winning a spot as one of the game show's showcase models. "It was a great job.

Then Gena Lee Nolin got her big break when asked to audition for a new night-time television dramatic series about lifeguards on the beach in California. The show, which spawned new talent for years, was considered cutting edge at the time for the bikini wearing, large breasted women who would grace the television screen during prime time.Gena was accepted into the cast and given the role of Neely Capshaw for 37 episodes. The show was a smash hit, especially with young teen boys, as the half naked life guards seemed to forever be saving lives and foiling plots of drug running and international espionage. The series jump started the careers of David Hasselhoff, Jeremy Jackson, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Erika Eleniak, Nicole Eggert, Carmen Electra, Traci Bingham and Vanessa Angel.

Every episode the series followed the adventures of a team of lifeguards on a crowded resort beach. Veteran lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (David Hasselhoff) watched over the younger lifeguards that come and went with each passing season as they keep the beaches safe for vacationers. Frequently he had to take action to save them from the raging seas and from the raging tempers that sometimes flare up between the young sexy guards in this stressful job.
