Saved by the Bell's Zack and Kelly Are Probably Divorced Today, EP Says

It seems not every ’90s TV couple is destined to end up like Full House‘s Becky and Jesse, or even Boy Meets World‘s Cory and Topanga.

During a recent interview with Saved by the Bell executive producer Peter Engel, TVLine learned that Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski — Bayside High School’s class couple of 1993, who went on to elope in Las Vegas just one year after graduation — simply weren’t built to last.

“Probably not,” Engel said when asked if Zack and Kelly would still be married today. “Well, they’d be married — but not to each other.”

Once you’ve processed that revelation, here’s a rundown of where Engel thinks each member of the Bayside Six (sorry, Tori!) would be today:

Zack would probably be the host of a game show or talk show, or he’d be managing a hedge fund; Slater would be a high school football coach; Screech would be Bill Gates; Jessie would have just lost to Donald Trump; Lisa would probably be Vera Wang, or a buyer at Neiman Marcus; and Kelly would be married with children and have a cooking show on the Food Network, which [Tiffani Thiessen] has — and I watch!

You can get more of Engel’s thoughts in his new memoir I Was Saved by the Bell: Stories of Life, Love, and Dreams That Do Come True, available wherever books are sold. In the meantime, are you surprised to learn of Zack and Kelly’s presumed fates? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
