    Jonathan Bennett will forever be known to us as Aaron Samuels, the high school stud who looked sexy with his hair pushed back in Mean Girls. Now he's competing on ABC's Dancing With The Stars, where he's currently showing off his moves on the dance floor, which is pretty fetch. Jonathan stopped by BuzzFeed's Los Angeles office to play a little game of Grool or Not Grool. We asked him to tell us whether he thought a bunch of a random things were grool or not, and here's what happened.

    "Let me tell you why: I thought they were cool at first because they came out when I was in college and the coolest kid in the school had Crocs so I went and bought them because they were cool. But my chicken legs do not look good in Crocs."

    Being called Aaron Samuels in real life

    Macey J. Foronda for BuzzFeed

    "I get it every day. Every single day of my life for the past 10 years. But I don't know what it would be like to live life the other way. Like, I don't know what it would be like to go through a day without someone yelling at you on the street, 'AARON SAMUELS!' That's so normal to me that I don't know what it would be like to not have that."
