Craig Kilborn's Peculier Wedding, You'll Never Guess His Wife

Craig stunned his fans by getting married in the August of 1999—to himself. He married himself in a private ceremony and exchanged the vows with a mirror in front of him.

And for the honeymoon, he went to Catalina Island boarding a private helicopter and spent five nights masturbating. Due to this unusual activity, his fans got bewildered about this sexuality and started to profess him as a gay. However, he has not revealed his sexual preference to the date.

Whether there was any hidden meaning (hurrah! if there was) behind this action of Craig's is entirely the matter of speculation, but it did shock people and made them chuckle. That is probably the greatest feat a comedian can achieve and Craig nailed it in that regard.
