'Survivor' star to run for governor

Rupert Boneham declared he is running for office over the weekend.

‘Survivor’ star to run for governor



One of Survivor’s all-time favorite characters, big, shaggy Rupert Boneham, announced over the weekend that he is officially running for governor of Indiana on the Libertarian ticket. See his announcement (below).

Boneham has been mulling a gubernatorial campaign since this summer. He is the first candidate for any party to throw his, um , hat in the ring. He’s clearly a strong candidate. Did you listen to how carefully he enunciates all his words? Even Hoosiers.

He’s a proven vote-getter. Though he never won in his three standard Survivor competitions, when he was entered in America’s Tribal Council, which was decided by viewers, he took 85% of the popular vote. Landslide. That also gave him a $1 million war chest to run with.

Could Survivor replace Love Boat as TV’s crucible for politicians? That’s Boston mayor Rob Mariano to you.
