This program had us thoroughly interested in the lives of this bright and happy bunch of high school kids who seemed to have the world in the palms of their hands. Now, after all this time, it’s fun to look back and realize that there was more to it than meets the eye! Check it out:
1. Tiffani Amber Thiessen.
In her real life, she started dating a 19-year-old when she was 14 and she moved out on her own when she was only 17.
2. Mario Lopez.
During his time on this show, he was accused of date rape and the case was settled out of court.
3. Mark-Paul Goss and Lark Voohies were real life boyfriend and girlfriend.
Their relationship lasted for 3 years.
4. Dustin Diamond
His character was unpopular and he is also unpopular in real life to this day due to his tell-all book of 2010 which was full of exaggerated stories and lies.
5. Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
During the break between ‘Saved By The Bell’ and ‘Saved By The Bell: The College Years’, rumors say that Mark took steroids because there was an obvious change in this physique.
6. Zach dyed his hair.
His regular shade is brown and had to dye it every two weeks during the show.
7. Foul Language Was A ‘No No’.
They were not allowed to swear on the set.
8. Her role was created for her.
Her character, Lisa Turtle, was supposed to be a spoiled, Jewish girl but Lark Voorhies impressed the producers so much that they rewrote it to suit her.
