To begin with, the boy was raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was educated at Penn State School.

Concerning his professional career, he chose his stage name at random from the telephone book. In 1983, he participated in the reality television show “Star Search”, in which contestants show their talents in comedy and music categories. He managed to reach the finals, and although not winning, from 1985 to 1995 Rockwell was a regular cast member in the comedy club of Southern California, a good basis to his net worth.

Afterwards, he participated in the stand up comedy series “Hollywood’s Hottest New Comic” (1990), but Rockwell is also known for staring and being a co-screenwriter of the comedy film “Killer Tomatoes Strike Back!” (1988), and he worked in the sequels “Return of the Killer Tomatoes!” (1991) and “Killer Tomatoes Eat France!” (1992). In 2000, he was the main star of the reality television series “Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?” – 50 women competed in the series for the main prize, which was marriage with so-called multi-millionaire Rick Rockwell. None of the participants were able to see their future husband, only his silhouette; the winner of the contest was Darva Conger, who married Rockwell in the same show. In addition to becoming his wife, she also got a diamond ring of 3 carats as well as other prizes which were valued at more than $100,000. The show garnered high viewer ratings – it has been reported that over 22 million people watched the show. However, after the show it became clear that Rick is not a real estate developer, as proof was given that he has been working as a stand up comedian until 1998. On the other hand Fox network claimed that the star of the show had an estimated net worth which is way bigger than $2 million. His marriage with Darva Conger was annulled several months later. Still, Rick Rockwell and his ex-wife were able to enjoy his stardom, as afterwards he and his ex-wife were invited onto a number of television shows including “Larry King Live” (2001) and others to give explanations. Conger even posed nude for the magazine Playboy. Rick Rockwell made a comedy tour round the country which was entitled “The Annulment Tour”, and in 2003, he also appeared in flight training videos as he is licensed pilot.

To conclude, all the above mentioned engagements have added sums to the overall size of Rick Rockwell net worth.
Finally, in the personal life of Rockwell, he is still notionally single.
