When Jason learnt that the role of Thomas Gates in The Pretender was to be written out of the show, he accepted a spot on the cast of Baywatch. The only problem was that Jason's last episode of The Pretender was not filmed until after filming for Baywatch had begun - this resulted in Jason having to travel back from Hawaii in order to film his final episode of The Pretender, before returning back to Hawaii to continue with his new role.

Jason Brooks (about working on Baywatch) : Hawaii is paradise to me – my favorite place on Earth. I loved doing all the stuff in the water, though, quite frankly, I shouldn't have been doing it, because I could have gotten killed! It was a physically demanding show.
