"It said 'adventurous couple needed,' " recalls the 29-year-old resident of Eugene, Ore., who had just left a job in corporate marketing and was looking for something to do.

Ask Judie Argyros why she flirts with the spotlight--modeling in Segerstrom Hall, cavorting in a clown getup at the circus, vamping a la Marilyn Monroe for charity--and she'll tell you that it's not because she craves attention.
