NEW CASTLE, IN - Watching Survivor star and Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Rupert Boneham judge a homemade ice cream contest is entertainment in itself.
And its the most fun that Bonham has had at a county fair when he had more than a dozen favors to judge at the Henry County 4-H Fair on Sunday. While, butter pecan and chocolate seemed to be the favor, Boneham smiled and laughed when he pulled out a handful of pictures to autograph along with flyers to tell the story of more freedom and less government that is the way of the Libertarian Party.
If Boneham is governor, he would likely give away that big state surplus to the people and charity like he did his $1 million in winnings when the people chose him as their favorite survivor. A tested CBS celebrity, Boneham continues to give back, working with youth offenders in a mentoring program that teaches personal responsibility, education, respect and work ethic.
Like like on Survivor, Rupert is known for his compassion, integrity and honesty. And on Sunday, he did not leave until everybody got to talk with him, while handing out autographed pictures of the celebrity.
