See The Cast of ‘Saved By The Bell’: Then and Now

If you can believe it, it’s already been 22 years since the original Saved By The Bell ended. We’re not talking about the College Years, because who wants to remember those? As the world already knows, Mario Lopez A.K.A. A.C. Slater and his bestie Zack Morris look better than ever, but what about Dustin Diamond? Did Screech ever grow out of that awkward phase?

Unsurprisingly, Mark-Paul Gosselaar still looks amazing. We were a little heartbroken when he went brunette, but we've gotten used to his new look and we love it. He may always remain Zack Morris to us, but MPG did go on to create another name for himself. For four seasons he was on Franklin & Bash (he was Bash) with another former '90s star, Breckin Meyer. He's set to star on the new NBC show People Are Talking in the Fall of 2015.

As we all might remember, after SBTB, Tiffani went on to star on Beverly Hills, 90210 for a few seasons as Valerie Malone, a very different character from Kelly Kapowski. In 2005 she married Brady Smith and the couple have two children together. Some of her more recent work includes voicing Misty the Mermaid on Jake and the Neverland Pirates and playing Elizabeth Burke on White Collar. She also runs her own website, where she talks about food, home, and lifestyle - and she gives us sick recipes for ice cream.

Seeing as she starred in Show Girls back in the mid '90s, it was no surprise to us when Elizabeth appeared on season 17 of Dancing With The Stars. Despite her excellent judges' scores, she was voted off early and finished in 6th place. She's sticking with dancing now, recently rehearsing in the studios with some of the So You Think You Can Dance crew. She also runs the website Ask Elizabeth, which is a self help resource meant for teenage girls.

Unlike some of his former cast members, Dustin Diamond hasn't had the most glamorous career post Saved By The Bell. In 2006 he released his own sex tape, Screeched - Saved By The Smell, though he later tried to claim he used a stunt double in the tape. In 2009 he released Behind The Bell, his point-of-view from his SBTB days, featuring some very unflattering stories about his former friends. Around Christmas in 2014, he got into a bar fight and apparently stabbed someone. In June of 2015, he was sentenced to 4 months in jail for this incident.

Weird Fun Fact: You can occasionally see Mr. Belding at Harrah's Pool After Dark in Atlanic City, NJ as a guest DJ/events host. AC and Vegas appearances aside, Dennis Haskins is still acting, appearing on different TV shows, in movies, and even videos. His upcoming work includes:  My B.F.F, Beauty Mark, and Holly, Jingles and Clyde 3D as Santa Claus.

Yikes. Who could have predicted Screech going to jail?! We sure weren’t expecting that.
