Mario Lopez may not have A.C. Slater's trademark parachute pants or jheri curl anymore, but that hasn't stopped him from keeping busy since he left Bayside.
Entertainment Weekly's website dubbed him one of the "scrappiest" people in show business after the announcement of his reality show.
After reprising his role in the "Bell" college spinoff, Lopez starred in the USA Network series "Pacific Blue" and did a slew of hosting gigs. He made a TV comeback in 2006 after finishing second on "Dancing With the Stars," and hit Broadway in 2008 to star in "A Chorus Line." That same year, he was named permanent weekday host of "Extra" and published a fitness book showing how he got his famous abs.
In 2010, Lopez, now 39, launched a reality show on VH1 with girlfriend dancer Courtney Mazza, as they prepared for the birth of their first child. Gia Francesca Lopez was born in September 2010, and her parents tied the knot last December.
