INDIANAPOLIS — Former reality TV star Rupert Boneham says he thinks he has a real shot at becoming Indiana's next governor.

The Libertarian Party nominated the fan favorite from 2004's "Survivor: All-Stars" at its state convention Saturday in Indianapolis.

Boneham said in a phone interview afterward that he feels he has "a strong chance of pulling not just the Libertarian vote, but the independent vote, the undecided vote, and maybe even some votes from Democrats and Republicans."

The tie-dye wearing Boneham won $1 million on the "Survivor" series and donated some of the prize to his Rupert's Kids charity, which provides mentoring and job training to at-risk youths.

Boneham says he's been a Libertarian for more than 20 years, but didn't become active in the party until this year.
