the running to join the series' cast



Four finalists -- two men and two women -- have been selected for the two recurring roles in the ensemble cast of "Baywatch Hawaii."

Show officials say one man and one woman will be selected for the show in about 10 days.

Those picked from the original 1,100-plus applicants are:

Bullet Kalai Miller, lifeguard and firefighter;

Bullet Kona Carmack, model and Playboy playmate;

Bullet Stacy Kamano, an extreme sports enthusiast;

Bullet Jason Momoa, nephew of lifeguard Brian Keaula-na.

Miller, Kamano and Momoa were given a swim test yesterday at a pool at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, where the auditions were conducted by Al and April Masini, and "Baywatch Hawaii" executives including producer Greg Bonann and star David Hasselhoff.

April Masini said today the three passed the test. Carmack is scheduled to be tested later this week.

Auditioners also made a brief screen test that "Baywatch" executives will take back to Los Angeles for final viewing and selection.

The two people picked will be announced at a news conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
