Born in Southern California, Nicole Eggert was Miss Universe in the petite division at age 5, which landed her in a Johnson's & Johnson's television commercial, one of many to come. In 1980 Nicole, only eight at the time, landed a role in the movie Rich and Famous, opposite Jacqueline Bisset and Candice Bergen, playing a young Meg Ryan, directed by George Cukor. She also co-starred with Darryl Hannah in Clan of the Cave Bear, directed by Michael Chapman.
After re-occurring roles in both hit TV shows TJ Hooker and Who's The Boss, she appeared as a regular on the hit television show Charles in Charge as Jamie Powell, when it was syndicated for five years between 1987 to 1992. After the show ended, Nicole went on to star as Lifeguard Summer Quinn on Seasons 1 and 2 on Baywatch at the height of its popularity between 1992 and 1994.
She has appeared in numerous films for television and the big screen, including the Lifetime TV hit Holiday Switch and National Lampoon's Cattle Call. She has also guest starred on such series as Gilmore Girls, The Outer Limits and Boy Meets World.
Today Nicole is enjoying raising her two daughters, and has recently been in the media for her struggle with weight loss, for which she created a "Funny or Die" spoof that received millions of hits and was voted as one of the funniest "Funny or Die" videos ever, making her a great role model for the "real" women in the world.
