Filming is currently under way for Netflix’s controversial new show Byron Baes.
And the newest stars confirmed for the docu-soap, which follows the lives of Byron Bay’s hottest influencers, are glamorous sisters Jessica and Lauren Johansen Bell.
Having their own Baywatch moment, the genetically blessed duo stripped down to skimpy swimwear as they ran across the sand and frolicked in the surf in scenes filmed earlier this month.
Bae-watch! Sisters Jessica and Lauren Johansen Bell stripped down to skimpy bikinis as they filmed scenes for Netflix’s new docu-series Byron Baes earlier this month. Pictured: Lauren
Lauren, who is represented by Que Models and has more than 11,000 Instagram followers, showed off her washboard stomach and trim pins in a black bandeau bikini top and G-string briefs.
She ran one manicured hand flirtatiously through her blonde tresses and smiled for the camera, as she dashed across the sand and splashed about in the surf.
The Norwegian-Australian beauty ensured she was primped to perfection, opting for glamorous makeup.

After drying off with a towel, Lauren changed into a casual ensemble consisting of ripped denim shorts and a paperboy cap, and kept hydrated with a cool drink.
Lauren’s sister Jessica was close by, filming scenes in a white one-piece swimsuit and denim shorts.
Her long brunette locks flowed in the breeze and, like her sister, her makeup was ultra glamorous.

Jessica, who has just over 5,000 Instagram followers, happily chatted with the crew.
Despite her rather modest Instagram following, Jessica’s star is slowly but surely on the rise.
She has her own fashion label, Johansen, and two of her dresses have been worn by none other than reality star and billionaire cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner.
In 2018, Kylie wore The Corset Jumper dress in white as well as The Silk Cha Dress in shade latte while testing out a new lip shade from her Kylie Cosmetics collection.

Jessica previously told Daily Mail Australia: ‘It’s not about the clothes, it’s about who is wearing them.’
Her sartorial achievements are all the more impressive given the young creative is entirely self-taught.
‘I started unofficially designing when I was 16, always cutting up my own clothes and altering them,’ she told FEMAIL.

Just eight months after starting the label, she opened her own store in Byron Bay.
Also confirmed to appear on the show are former reality stars Nathan Favro, who rose to fame on The Bachelorette, and Elias Chigros, who appeared on Love Island.
Co-creative director of local boutique BISQUE Hannah Brauer will also appear, alongside Byron Bay couple Dave Frim and Saskia Wotton.

Others in the cast include influencer Jade Kevin Foster, glamorous musician St James and spiritualistic therapist Simba Ali.
Rounding out the gang is Kyle Sandilands’ former assistant-turned-manager Alex Reid.
The unveiling of the cast comes after Netflix was recently forced to apologise to the stars of the show for describing them as ‘influencers’ and ‘hot Instagrammers’.

Netflix’s Director of Originals in Australia, Que Minh Luu, confirmed the cast ‘hated’ a recent press release about the upcoming series.
‘They are artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, business owners, models, on a spiritual journey and more,’ Ms Luu said, apologising for the wording.
‘Most of them hated the press release too! Did a lot of apologising that week. Fired the PR team (lol joking about firing, we’re all learning together).’
