INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Former "Survivor" contestant Rupert Boneham has filed papers indicating he may run for governor of Indiana as a Libertarian.

The Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday Boneham filed papers to form an exploratory committee with the Indiana Election Division and is expected to make a final decision in the next few weeks.

"I have spent my entire adult life serving my community and I see an opportunity to make a difference for Indiana," he wrote on his campaign Web site, www.rupertforgovernor.com. "While surveying the current choices for our next governor, I do not see anyone that has an understanding of what daily life is like for many Hoosiers nor anyone who appears to understand the harm that misguided government policies are doing to our communities."

Three other candidates already have declared their intentions of seeking the state's top executive job: Republicans Rep. Mike Pence and businessman Jim Wallace of Fishers, and Democrat John Gregg, a former state House speaker.
