Too Hot for TV: Reality TV Shows Canceled by Scandal
Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?
“Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?” (Fox)
We’re shocked -- shocked! -- that a fail-proof concept like marrying off a rich bachelor to a woman he’s never met on national TV didn’t work out. Widely cited as one of the biggest reality-TV failures of all time, this 2000 special featured 50 single women competing for Rockwell’s affections, with nurse Darva Conger ultimately “winning” and marrying him on the spot. But the network took heat after Rockwell’s “multi-millionaire” status was questioned and a past restraining order against him was revealed. Conger quickly had a change of heart, seeking an annulment, and (needless to say) Fox never returned to the altar for a second installment.
