Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell,

game-show participants, married during the Feb. broadcast of the Fox Network's Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire, in which 50 women competed for the on-air marriage to Rockwell, a wealthy bachelor. Conger, a registered nurse, was the (un)lucky woman, who not only got a three-carat diamond ring and more than $100,000 in prizes, but also, as she later learned, a husband whose former fiancée had filed a restraining order against him in 1991. Conger apparently had second thoughts, and upon returning from the honeymoon, she announced plans to file for an annulment. She posed nude in the Aug. issue of Playboy.
