Guy Fieri is many things: He's a very wealthy chef, restaurateur, TV personality, a frozen s'mores pizza fan, an established Broadway actor, and a climate change denier. And add another feather to his spiky, bleached cap: The other day at the fall commencement of his alma mater UNLV, Guy Fieri was given an honorary doctorate.

According to the UNLV News Center, Fieri received the honor "for his public service, for maintaining a strong connection with UNLV students, and for supporting hotel college fundraising efforts." Said Dr Fieri: "I've had some great things happen in my career, but this is at the top." Also, don't miss this photo of Fieri unironically wearing a "KOLLEGE" shirt while he was visiting Montclair State University in New Jersey, the location of his Guy Fieri On Campus dining facility.
