- Holds the record for the most money won on the celebrity version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with $532,000 won during two appearances on the show. During his first appearance, he won $500,000, which has only been equalled by two celebrities - Rosie O'Donnell, and Norm MacDonald. During his second appearance, he left with $32,000.
- Considers the writings of self-help guru, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer a major influence in his life.
- Likes "The Sims" series for PC.
- He is a self-described libertarian.
- Is a wrestling fan.
- Was the first ever celebrity to enter WWE's Pay-Per-View Royal Rumble. He eliminated himself when the next participant, the seven footer Kane ('Glenn Jacobs' (qv)), came out. This became one of WWE's greatest moments in sport's entertainment history.
- Received an honorary Ph.D. from Cleveland State University in 2000.
- Received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, 21 February 2003. Appropriately enough, the star of this former Marine is located directly in front of The Supply Sergeant; a Hollywood fixture for decades.
