Former "Survivor" Contestant Rupert Boneham Has Political Aspirations

If you've ever watched Survivor, you might remember Rupert Boneham as the contestant who wore a lot of tie-dye and was always friendly and sincere. You may even know him from his charity organization, Rupert's Kids, in which he helps at-risk teens turn their lives around. Respect.

But you probably don't know him as a contender for political office in Indiana.

That's right. The former reality star is making a move to try and gain the Libertarian nomination to run for Governor of Indiana. So far he's just opened an exploratory committee, but according to Indiana news site WIBC, a party chairman has commented that he'd have a good chance if he enters the race.

Well, if anything, he's certainly an interesting speaker.
