Rupert Boneham, perhaps the most famous character/contestant on the show Survivor, has put together an exploratory comittee to run for governor of the great state of Indiana. He'll be running from the libertarian party.

I'm certain money would be an issue for his campaign, but given his notoriety could he win? I compare him to Jesse Ventura.

God, he's the biggest ass to ever play the game.  Acted so entitled and whiny when he got voted out.  And remember when he screamed and nearly attacked JFP over one vote?  That was absurd...

A lot of Hoosiers (myself included) adore Rupert. I think if he actually came across competent he could do good, but a lot depends on how much funding he gets. This is certainly good news for the Libertarian Party of Indiana, which has been doing very well recently.

I actually somewhat like all three candidates, which is a refreshing change to recent elections in Indiana. Rupert's position on township government's will likely be the deciding factor on how I vote.

Well, I prefer Sandra, then JFP (if only for the hilariousness) then Rupert. But it would still be cool.
