Mario Lopez going to the dogs as Westminster host

Mario Lopez is going from boxing to dancing to dogs.In this age of easily maintained celebrity, all you need to stay in front of people's eyes are a pretty face and a willingness to be there. Mario Lopez has both, and he's built that into a a career that keeps him resurfacing from one unrelated project to another without ever really showing any particular gifts for performing.

Now, he's going to host the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this February on USA -- because, when you think elite canine breeding competitions, you think Mario Lopez. (Somewhere in all this is a joke about what a dog Saved by the Bell was, but it's too much of a reach to go there.)

According to a USA Network release, Lopez will join co-host David Frei as co-host of the 134th dog breed contest. It's the foremost dog show in the world and the second longest continuously held sporting event in the United States (second only to the Kentucky Derby). It will all go down at Madison Square Garden on February 15 and 16.

Of course, Lopez is fresh off of Dancing with the Stars and Extra. If you connect the dots, it's only a matter of time before he guest hosts WWE's Raw. It makes as much sense as anything else the guy does.
