The following is unsourced information:
- His wife's maiden name was Owen. For his stage name, he took Owen and added the B from the first letter of his middle name (Bowen).
- Jim was the original choice to present the quiz show SUDO-Q but turned it down due to commitments with his You Can't Beat a Bit of Bully show.
While this is interesting, we can't use it unless you provide a source. Also, none of this is really trivia, as trivia by its definition is "unimportant information" - it therefore shouldn't be in a trivia section but instead the information should be incorporated into the main article. - Tbsdy lives (talk) 10:53, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Large parts of this article appear to have been lifted directly from the biography given at http://www.jimbowen.tv/biography.php - I have blanked these sections. This article needs totally rewritten. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 18:21, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
