Carmen Electra: High & Dry

06/15/2001 at 11:00 AM EDT

Carmen Electra, 27, was on hand in New York's Union Square at noon Tuesday to help set a Guinness World Record for the world's largest hot tub -- not building it, but gyrating in a bathing suit beside it, reports PEOPLE. The event, sponsored by Wrigley's Big Red Gum, included a crowd of mostly male gawkers and inflatable palm trees. Thirty participants who hopped inside the tub had a chance to win a vacation with Electra in Mexico next week. Electra never got wet herself (that and the fact she was wearing a one-piece rather than a bikini led to some grumbling), but the former "Baywatch" babe did tell PEOPLE: "I can name a few more things (that I've done) that are more outrageous than this, but this is pretty big." Also on hand: Guinness judges, along with NYPD officers and Carmen's own security patrol, which parted the crowd as she made her way toward the 24-foot, 112,900-pound hot tub, which held 13,000 gallons of bubbling water. The former Mrs. Dennis Rodman also admitted that she doesn't own a hot tub herself. Anyone care to give her a gift?
