Actor Ian Ziering proved he is still fit at 50 by showing off his buff body in his comeback show with the Chippendales in Las Vegas on Saturday night (14Jun14). The Beverly Hills, 90210 star stripped off for fans at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Sin City with the male dance troupe for the first time last year (13), and he returned to the stage on Saturday.
Ziering will whip off his clothes for packed crowds until July (14), and he admits he's had to work hard to keep his body in shape as he starts his 50s.
He tells the Las Vegas Sun, "You have got to take care of yourself as you age. That's a given. You have the body you deserve. If you treat it well, take care of yourself and focus on health and fitness, you will be equipped to adapt to change and to capitalise on opportunity.
"When I started thinking that way, that revelation just opened up the world for me. Being 50 is great. It's none of the things I thought it would be when I looked at it through 20-year-old eyes."
98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons and Baywatch's Jeremy Jackson have also both previously joined the strippers for a Las Vegas residency.
Actor Ian Ziering is the latest Hollywood star to turn stripper after signing up to shed his clothes with The Chippendales. The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star will follow in the footsteps of 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons and Baywatch's Jeremy Jackson by joining the raunchy male dance troupe for a residency in Las Vegas.
Ziering will dance with the group at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino throughout June (13), according to TMZ.com.
Having. Difficulty. Forming. Words. The first pictures of Joey Lawrence as a Chippendale are enough to leave us speechless.
Maybe we should just stop here and reflect on the photos from the buffed Blossom star's first night as a member of the male revue show on Friday.
If you want to see the six-pack in person, the 36-year-old actor will be um, performing? in Sin City at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino until June 24.
Past celebrities to strip down include: 98 Degrees' member Jeff Timmons, who warned Lawrence, "it's a wild ride!," and Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson.

The Blossom star will don the group's legendary bow-tie for a three-week special engagement at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, beginning on 7 June (12).
The actor's representative confirmed the news to TMZ.com, insisting the toned 36 year old has signed up to do the "whole nine yards".
Lawrence follows in the footsteps of stars like Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson and 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons, who have previously bared almost all for cash at the saucy, adults-only revue.
The actor, who played David Hasselhoff's son on the cult beach show, is in talks with Chippendales bosses about a longtime role in the saucy, adults-only revue.
Jackson's representative tells TMZ.com that the actor is hoping to replace 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons, who briefly appeared as a Chippendale in the show.
If it all works out, it will be Jackson's first job since appearing on reality TV show Celebrity Rehab, during which he battled an addiction to fitness and hormone injections.
