Tiegs returned to reality television in 2012 as a competitor on Donald Trump-hosted The Celebrity Apprentice, facing off against the likes of Victoria Gotti, Arsenio Hall and Adam Carolla. But her tenure on the program proved short-lived. She became the first contestant cut from the show,
and she later claimed that her kind disposition probably played a role in her ouster. Tiegs didn't want to engage in "backstabbing" or be "mean spirited" to win.
Tiegs has been married four times: to advertising executive Stan Dragoti (from 1970-79); to photographer Peter Beard (from 1981-83); to aspiring actor Anthony Peck (from 1990-94), with whom she has one son, Zachary; and most recently to yoga instructor Rod Stryker. After numerous vain attempts to become pregnant on their own, Tiegs and Stryker hired a surrogate mother to carry their child. In July 2000, they became the parents of twin sons, Jaden and Reid. Tiegs and Stryker divorced in 2001.
An active environmentalist, Tiegs is on the board of the Earth Conservation Corps. She has also promoted awareness about indoor air quality in a national campaign.
