At 59 years old, Ian Ziering has this physical status:
In 1990, Ziering began his portrayal of the character Steve Sanders on the hit series Beverly Hills, 90210. Sanders was a high school student and friend of Brandon Walsh (Jason Priestly), one of the series' other central characters. He is one of only four series regulars to appear on the show for its entire duration of ten seasons until 2000.
In 1998, Ziering was cast as the voice of Dr. Niko "Nick" Tatopoulos in Godzilla: The Series, which was a direct follow-up to the 1998 Hollywood Godzilla re-imagining. Ziering replaced Matthew Broderick, who played Nick Tatopolous in the movie.
In 2006, Ziering produced, directed and starred in the short film Man vs. Monday, which won the Audience Choice Award at the 2006 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Also in 2006, he won the Best Actor Award at the 2006 Monaco Film Festival for his portrayal of Francis in the independent film Stripped Down.
Ziering has also appeared in the television series JAG, What I Like About You, The Doctors as Erich Aldrich and Guiding Light as Cameron Stewart. He also had a role in the videogame Freelancer as the protagonist, Edison Trent.
He was a celebrity dancer in 2007 on Season 4 of Dancing with the Stars. His professional dance partner was Cheryl Burke, who won the competition in Season 2 with partner Drew Lachey and Season 3 with partner Emmitt Smith. Ziering made it to the semi-finals, and received a perfect score (three 10s) from the judges for one of his two dances in the round. However, it was not enough to reach the finals: he and Burke were eliminated during the results show the next day on May 15, 2007. In 2016 Burke said the experience of working with Ziering made her want to "slit her wrists". She later apologized, not to Ziering, but for making a thoughtless reference to suicide. Ziering did not comment publicly on Burke's comments beyond re-tweeting a message from a former co-worker that praised him as a great person to be around.
On June 18, 2007, Variety reported that Ziering had auditioned the previous week for the opportunity to succeed Bob Barker as host of The Price Is Right. The job ultimately went to Drew Carey. Ziering's ex-wife, Nikki, was a model on the show from 1999 to 2002.
In May, 2013, it was announced that Ziering would be performing with Chippendales as a celebrity guest star for four weeks at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
In 2015, he appeared on Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.
In 2018, he competed on Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition.
In 2019, he was cast to play the superhero, Blue Devil, on the show Swamp Thing, in the DC Universe streaming service. The show ran for only one season, though it was positively received by critics and audience.

Spent an afternoon in a rented Python Green Porsche 911 Carrera GTS when I was in Germany last week. Drove a 150 mile loop from the Porsche museum through the Black Forest to Baden Baden. The loop included bursts of ridiculous triple digit speed on the autobahn, interspersed with twisty forest roads and farmland straight aways. My buddy Dave and I giggled through each and every G-force that pressed us into our seat. Truly a bucket list item checked off! #porsche #bucketlist #bestfriends
I’ve been following Mark Groves since I broke up with the mother of my children. ￼I was at a crushing moment in my life where my experience did not match the blueprint for the happiness I desired. A depressive set back that left me rudderless and adrift. A few months of antidepressants kept me afloat till I was no longer paralyzed with emotional mire but I still struggled. I sought personal growth as a way to rise from the shell shocking grief of a failed marriage, two failed TV series, the pandemic, having every foundational building block my girls grew up with spun upside down, the shift and shut down of Hollywood, and the unbearable silence of an empty home as I attempted to navigate the storm in a distressed state. No death, but certainly loss of life. A friend told me to follow createthelove. Marks insightful commentary on the human condition as it pertains to relational interaction is brilliant and I credit him with helping to put the North Star back in my sky. I am confident my setback will pale in comparison to my comeback. Please know I paid for this retreat, I paid for my hotel, I paid what everyone paid to be there. It was not cheep, but I’m my best investment. If you’ve been sipping on some of the tea that I’ve been spilling the last few days, go to his website and grab your own cup of the good stuff. Createthelove.Com Every good wish for love laughter and happiness to you all 🙏 Mark, thank you for everything you’ve done for me, and what you continue to do for others 💫
