The Mario Lopez Experience


We are just six days away from the next undignified gallop toward hipdom attempt by ESPN2, ESPN Hollywood, a show about how athletes and celebrity mix. (Yep.) We'll focus more on the show later, but right now we're gonna talk about co-host Mario Lopez.

For those of you not obsessed with Chuck Klosterman and Bill Simmons, Lopez played Slater on "Saved By The Bell" and has since made a name for himself as the token Latino hunk host of various shows like "Pet Star" and "The World's Most Talented Kid." This has given him such a fan base that he now has his own Web site, The Mario Lopez Network, where, for a mere $30 a year, you can join up for all kinds of goodies, including:

A signed 8x10 photo of Mario himself A detailed biography of Mario Lopez, including details not available ANYWHERE else (not even on this web site!) A birthday card *AND* a special holiday card from Mario 2 *SURPRISE* gifts from Mario! Official Mario Lopez Network membership card Access to exlusive mailings, contests, and merchandise ONLY available to members of the Mario Lopez Network.

This is also a guy who was married to Doritos lady Ali Landry, who nullified their marriage just two weeks in because Lopez was "a cheat." Join the network!
