'Celebrity Home Raiders': Hasselhoff's 12-foot statue ... of himself

'Celebrity Home Raiders': David Hasselhoff's 12-Foot Statue ... Of Himself
Lifetime's "Celebrity Home Raiders" visited David Hasselhoff's Malibu mansion to scrounge up some memorabilia to auction off for charity, but there was one bizarre item the Hoff wasn't willing to let go of (at first).

KIT: "Oh my God!"
HOFF: "That's big Dave! Look, let me show you this."
HOFF: "This cost $100,000. It's 750 lbs. It's 12 feet long."
KIT: "Look at the buns on these guys, like coconuts."
HOFF: "It's anatomically correct, so be careful."

"Big Dave" was a replica of the Hoff's appearance in 2004's 'The Spongebob Movie' -- and it apparently holds a lot of sentimental value.

Dave said even if someone paid him $1 million for it, that wouldn't be enough.

Dave told the L.A. Times that he held onto the 12-foot replica in hopes of turning into a mailbox or a headstone -- but decided to just keep it around to freak people out.

It turns out Dave later had a change of heart, and let go of "Big Dave" -- along with a ton of Baywatch props for the good cause.

The Hoff's stuff is up for the taking this April as part of the Hollywood Legends Auction at Julien's Auctions. Bidding starts Friday, April 11.

I bet the statue is smarter than "Little David".

Read some comments, None too positive. Hoff has had a pretty cool life. He's got some demons, like most of us. He has helped launch many careers. I'm sure not too many people, men & women, haven't checked out Pam Anderson along with many other BayWatch Beauties. We should all try to spread some love, do some random acts of kindness, and keep our house clean.

Starting to look like Monty Rock III.

Great headstone! People would have no problem finding you in the cemetary.

He's still a huge star in Europe. Maybe they can row it home.

What has Hasselhoff done to his face? He looks just like Bruce Jenner--are they brothers?

If it's anatomically correct does that mean it is like a Ken doll.
