Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez dance up a storm on Extra.
Elizabeth Berkley may have played a brainiac on “Saved by the Bell,” but do her own smarts stack up to Jessie Spano’s? Her former TV boyfriend, Mario Lopez, wondered that very question when Elizabeth and her “Dancing with the Stars” partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, recently stopped by the “Extra” set.
“I want to know how much you’ve retained over the years,” Mario explained of the “SBTB” trivia game he’d cooked up. After the host shared with the audience the not-so-shocking secret that Zack Morris’ blonde locks came from a bottle, he asked Liz to recall how often Mark-Paul Gosselaar had to dye his ’do in order to maintain Zack’s signature surfer-boy look. “Quite often — would you say every two weeks?” she guessed. Ding ding ding! Correct answer!
However, the next question was not as easy, and Elizabeth got stumped when Mario asked which three characters appeared in all 86 episodes. Too bad Val couldn’t be of much assistance — his “SBTB” knowledge extends no further than Kelly Kapowski’s bra size.
Val Chmerkovskiy is Tiffani Thiessen’s #1 fan.
