Pamela Anderson Became Famous After an Accidental Jumbotron Appearance

Canadian actor and model Pamela Anderson had a one-of-a-kind experience when she made it to the big screen before having even a cameo on the small-screen. Most surprising of all, her big-screen debut wasn’t in a movie theater, but on a jumbotron. 

Every celebrity has their own path to stardom. Many benefit from powerful family connections, while others spend years slowly rising through the ranks. A rarer — but more coveted — experience is that of being “discovered.” Everyone dreams of going about their typical life, only to be whisked onto the A-list. 

As Anderson entered secondary school, she took up gymnastics and acrobatics. With such a love for sports, it seems only fitting that she was discovered at a sporting event… but not in the way you might expect.
