Best Appearance by Colorado Newlyweds in a National Magazine

Gary Magness/Sarah Siegel
In Style Weddings

Gary Magness and Sarah Siegel, both children of Colorado celebs (he's the son of late cable magnate Bob Magness; she's the daughter of Celestial Seasonings founder Mo Siegel), are not only jet-setting, they're trend-setting: The pair's nuptials were featured in the spring 2003 edition of In Style Weddings. The casino owner and underwear designer, respectively, got married at the Mexican resort of Costa Careyes, where they flew in fifty guests by chartered jet. Eleven months later, Hollywood stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar wed there. Maybe the Phipps Mansion was booked?

Winter in Colorado is no time to be sporting a swimsuit, but that didn't stop the intrepid folks at Sports Illustrated from their quest to show almost-naked women in the most exotic spots around the globe -- Vietnam, Barbados, Kenya, Meeker. Meeker? For this year's swimsuit edition, SI headed out to Seven Lakes Lodge, an exclusive (rooms go for $1,230 a night, double occupancy), eleven-room lodge outside the town of Meeker. In a spread titled "Hunting, Fishing and Wishing in Colorado," Old Navy model Molly Sims was shown fly-fishing -- topless, of course -- in hip waders, and also straddling a log fence wearing nothing more than a black bikini and rubber boots. Ah, the great outdoors! She looked silly, but the place looked gorgeous.

For years, the Aurora Sentinel has published photos of men convicted of soliciting ladies, and gents, of the night. But this past July, Denver and its television station, Channel 8, upped the ante on anti-prostitution efforts with the launch of Johns TV, a televised marathon of mug shots that aired six nights a week; "As Seen on Johns TV," a Web version of the program, could also be accessed at www.denvergov.org/johnstv/. The show quickly became a huge success, talked about nationally and aped by Detroit -- but with its success came the seeds of its own destruction: Johns TV had to go on winter hiatus because it was running out of johns. (Some reports credit the show with a 40 percent decrease in soliciting in Denver.) Whatever its social value, Johns TV has opened up a whole new world of entertainment in local cable access, without the hassle of confusing plot lines, scripted dialogue -- or actors going on a Tony Soprano-like strike for more pay. We got your reality TV right here.

Most television news types would do anything to avoid making spectacles of themselves, including having their eyes lasered so that they don't have to wear glasses. But Stacey Donaldson, a second-string weather forecaster on the local Fox affiliate, rejects this theory, opting to wear a pair of dark-framed, oval-rimmed glasses that make her stand out from local news's look-alike pack. People with impaired vision, unite! You have nothing to lose but your squint.

Best Official Biography of a TV Personality

Dan Daru
Channel 2

TV station Web sites regularly feature biographical material about their featured personalities, and the vast majority of it is about as spicy as a brick of Velveeta. But the bio of Dan Daru, Channel 2's wild card, is a notably cheesy exception. His tale, accessible at WB2.trb.com, claims that he was born with "an extra pair of lips on his left cheek"; insists that he won a be-a-reporter-for-a-day contest several years ago but still keeps showing up; and states that he's "imbalanced," "very dangerous" and "thinks he is a goat." His turn-ons include "dog toys, milk, blue toilet water and the smell of paint," and his turn-offs are "Fig Newtons, luggage and the letter Q." There's such a thing as too much information, Dan.
