Hollywood’s Gossip show, “Extra” is replacing Dayna Devon and Mark McGrath, who are presently hosting the show. Mario Lopez will take over the spotlight in September as the new host when the show starts its 15th season on the air. Lopez has worked on the show before as a special news correspondent and he has co-hosted the show with their weekend edition.

Mark McGrath will return to his music career with Sugar Ray since they are recording a new album. Dayna Devon has decided to stay with the show as a special correspondent and as a backup host for the show. “Extra” is a production of Time Telepictures Prods and its executive producer is Theresa Coffino.

“He will be a fresh and dynamic presence and we can’t wait for him to assume the new role,” said senior executive producer Lisa Gregorish-Dempsey, according to Variety.

Lopez took over the title “The Hottest Bachelor” after Matthew McConaughey was no longer considered a bachelor with People’s Magazine. Mario recently split with his ex-girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff, making him as a bachelor. He then became eligible for the title The Hottest Bachelor.

Lopez shared some of his weaknesses with People’s Magazine by telling them that he used to be so fat that he looked like a sumo wrestler.

The 34 year old actor became well known from his role as A.C. Slater in the series “Saved By The Bell” which was popular with the teenagers. Lopez says he and “Saved By The Bell” co-star Mark-Paul Gosselaar that played Zack Morris in the show, are still friends.
