A.C. Slater never goes away – and thank goodness for that. Indeed, the man who portrayed everyone’s favorite high school jock, Mario Lopez, is back on the small screen in Dancing with the Stars.

Below, he takes a personality quiz from Entertainment Weekly:

I think I’m the worst singer ever. It’d be Bob Marley ”Could You Be Loved.” I’d kinda talk through it.

  • The last thing I bought on eBay:

A vintage boxing poster of Rocky Marciano.

  • The first famous person I befriended:

Ricky Schroder was shooting Silver Spoons when I was on the lot on Kids Incorporated [in the mid-80s]. In my eyes, I was his friend. To him, I was probably just an acquaintance.

  • If the TV is on at 2 a.m., I’m watching:

I go straight to my TiVo, and I watch whatever I have recorded: The Sopranos, Entourage, Real Time With Bill Maher, or my guilty pleasure, America’s Funniest Home Videos. And if not, they always repeat SportsCenter on a loop.

  • Do you have any tattoos? Piercings?

No tattoos. No piercings. I don’t want to mark my body. [Laughs] I’m not opposed to tattoos, but there’s nothing that I’m that passionate about that I need to express every day for the rest of my life. Plus, I don’t want it to look like a smudge later on.


Tyra Banks. I like a little flavor in my ladies. And she’s beautiful and voluptuous, and I like a woman with curves.

  • Stallone of Schwarzenegger?

Stallone. He’s Rocky, baby.

  • Rocky I or Rocky III?

Rocky III. Well, obviously Rocky, because it won the Academy Award, but Rocky III was definitely the best. Mr. T as Clubber Lang, and Hulk Hogan as Thunderlips.

  • Grey’s Anatomy or CSI?

My mom loves Grey’s Anatomy, but I haven’t seen it, so I guess I have to say CSI, right?

  • Fergie solo or Fergie with the Black Eyed Peas?

I knew Fergie when she was Stacy Ferguson. I’ve gotta say, All Fergie all the time.

  • Elizabeth Berkley or Tiffani Thiessen?

Oh, you can’t make me choose. I can’t answer that.

  • You’re stranded on a desert island with the cast of Saved by the Bell, and you’ve run out of food. Who do you eat first?

Can’t I just say ”Any one of the girls?” Oh my God, there’s Eva Longoria calling on the other line. She’s my buddy. Can I take her? [Laughs] Can I eat her?
