Believe it or not, The Girls Next Door star and former girlfriend of Hefner Bridget Marquardt was actually turned down at first. Bridget's test shots were reportedly no good, so she was rejected. But Hef wound up inviting her to live in the mansion and be one of his girlfriends.

Bridget became one of the magazine mogul's three girlfriends along with Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson. She's appeared in the magazine several times, but only in shoots featuring all three girlfriends and not in her own exclusive solo shoot.
