INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former "Survivor" contestant Rupert Boneham is considering a run for governor of Indiana
Boneham has formed an exploratory committee to possibly seek the Libertarian Party's nomination for governor.
He said on his campaign website that the current field of candidates doesn't understand the problems average Hoosiers face. He cited his extensive work on behalf of troubled teenagers with his charity as his chief qualities.
The bushy-bearded Boneham know for wearing tie-dyed shirts competed in 2003 on "Survivor: Pearl Island" and has been on multiple "Survivor" follow-ups since then.
If he runs, Boneham would join a field currently dominated by Republican Congressman Mike Pence and former Democratic Indiana House Speaker John Gregg.
