 Michael Kovac/FilmMagic

House star Jesse Spencer, 30, (his Fox drama airs Monday at 8 p.m. E.T.) shares the 25 things you don't know about him with UsMagazine.com.

1. I cook a mean spag bog (spaghetti Bolognese).

2. I've just planted a cactus garden to save on watering.

3. You may call me a hoarder. I keep things others wouldn't. I call it recycling.

4. I play the didgeridoo using circular breathing.

5. I love getting back into nature. If I don't do it for a while, I resort to drinking instead.

6. I recently did a 2-mile pier-to-pier swim. Open-water swimming scares the hell out of me.

7. Since then, I've become excited about doing stupid things such as a 100-mile bike ride through Big Sur and the Vegas Marathon.

8. Eight is my lucky number.

9. I have an addictive personality.

10. I'm self-taught at piano.

11. The band I play violin for, Band From TV, has raised more than $2 million for various charities, including the Indiana University Kenya Partnership, which fights HIV/AIDS.

12. I hate staying in resorts. When I go on holiday, I like to stay in crappy places with great surf.

13. When I was a kid, we had a pet sheep, a kangaroo and a magpie.

14. I'm converting my Datsun 240z into an electric car.

15. I've been arrested by the Bangkok police.

16. Soggy bread makes me gag.

17. I'm a big believer in public broadcasting.

18. I'll eat the weird stuff no one wants to. Bugs, mystery meat — bring it on!

19. Germaphobes bug the hell out of me.

20. I can't dress myself to save my soul. I'll wear the same T-shirt till it falls off.

21. I have a boxing gym in my garage.

22. When I was younger, my siblings and I were Dungeons & Dragons addicts.

23. I'm gonna learn to play the bagpipes. I like things that others find extremely uncool.

25. I love a game of chess.
