Jaleel White, aka 'Steve Urkel,' is at the Minnesota State Fair


If you're at the State Fair on Thursday and want to indulge in a bit of celebrity spotting, keep an eye out for Urkel.

Jaleel White, who played Steve Urkel on the phenomenally popular '90s sitcom "Family Matters," has been out and about at the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

He's being followed by a camera crew and as well as posing with fans, he has also been getting his first taste of Spam, judging by social media posts.


No word as of yet as to what he's filming, but his attendance has started to attract notice among fair-goers.


We are hearing unconfirmed reports that White's presence at the State Fair has completely overshadowed the arrival of Reginald VelJohnson, who played Urkel's patriarch neighbor on the sitcom.
