Gilbert's TV-14 -- Notable TV weddings
Trista and Ryan
It was hard to choose between the televised nuptials of this Bachelorette couple, Survivor couple Rob and Amber, and Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell from Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire? I went with Trista and Ryan because it was such a perfectly plastic event, even more grotesquely fascinating than Romber and Darvick. Trista, with her love of fame, was supremely needy and annoying, while Ryan was just a doll -- and I mean a synthetic doll with good looks and no personality. It was a People magazine photoshoot, with rings. Helicopters hovered above the pink and white spectacle. ABC paid them a million dollars to get married on TV.
