Although she currently stars on White Collar (with babe Matt Bomer), birthday girl Tiffani Thiessen — who turns 40 today — first won our hearts as high school bombshell Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell. Just about every guy at Bayside High, and every teen boy watching, was smitten with Kelly. Throughout the series, we saw her swoon and flip her hair over Zack Morris, AC Slater, Jeff from The Max, and her college professor. But lucky Zack got the girl in the end!
We're combining our love of '90s nostalgia with our love of GIFs for an animated guide to love inspired by the queen of Bayside. You, too, can snag your own Zack by channeling Kelly in your dating life. Just ask yourself: what would Kelly Kapowski do?
