The cast of ‘Saved by the Bell’ at a shoot for People magazine; Lark Voorhies, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Thiessen, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Elizabeth Berkley
Who thought of the SBTB reunion idea first, People magazine or Jimmy Fallon? According to Gosselaar, it was the magazine who had the bright idea, then ‘Late Night’ picked up on it. But “It’s very hard to get all of us together,” he said to Newsweek.
That particular Jimmy Fallon appearance, where the actor showed up in full “Zack attack drag” also sparked rumors of plastic surgery – because Gosselaar looked so damn good! “I read a blog [where] some guy said, ‘Dude, lay off the Botox.’ I’ve never had Botox before. The wig was so f–king tight, it gave me a mini face-lift.”
What was the best thing the actor gained from his many years on the show? Fame? Success? Fortune? His answer is a little bit sweeter: “I met my wife on Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” he said. “She literally walked by in the hallway and said one word to Zack. Zack looks at her, and gives a look at the camera and winks. It was 16 years ago. We’ve been together ever since.”
