90210’s Ian Ziering now a Chippendale


Remember Ian Ziering? Better known as Steve Sanders, the funny rich-boy in the 1990s hit show “Beverly Hills, 90210,” Ziering has chosen a new career path: male stripping.

According to TMZ, the 49 year-old Jewish actor, who was the semi-finalist in the fourth season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” will join the Las Vegas Chippendales at the Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino in June.

Ziering is not the first celebrity to take the sweaty stage. Before him there were Joey Lawrence of “Blossom,” Jake Pavelka of “The Bachelor” and Jeff Timmons of the boy band “98 Degrees.”

“Actors and performers never know what their next job will be, and when I got the call from Chippendales, my jaw dropped as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV,” Ziering told Us Weekly. “I am passionate about health and fitness, so I’ve kept in shape, and dancing is something I’ve always enjoyed, so I figured why not?”

“I am so excited to be a part of this iconic worldwide organization, it’s really a dream come true!” Ziering gushed. “Hey TMZ, I’ve got two front row seats for you!”

We just want to know one thing…What would Brandon do?
