    Elizabeth Berkley

    Jew Score:



    July 28, 1972 —

    We admit it, we watched Saved by the Bell. No, we didn't watch it for Elizabeth's character Jessie, who did have a bizzaro-Emmy moment in the episode where she gets addicted to caffeine pills.

    And then, there's Showgirls.

    After Saved by the Bell, we had no idea what would become of Jessie; the buck-toothed too-tall frilly-haired anything-but-beauty looked to be destined for anything but stardom.

    And then, there's Showgirls.

    So of course, it shocked us to find that Berkley is not only a Jew, but also a practicing Jew, such a rarity in today's Jewish Hollywood.

    And then, there's Showgirls.

    Which means it's not fine to eat shellfish or get a tattoo, but it's perfectly normal to strip naked and lick a pole? We guess it was just a movie...

    It wasn't just a movie, it was Showgirls.

    Verdict: Jew.
