'Bachelorette' contestant may run in Australian federal election
Michael Turnbull could make his break into politics
Well, it definitely would not be the first time a reality TV star switched over to politics. Michael Turnbull, a former contestant on the Australian 'Bachelorette' has announced that he is considering running for the Senate.
Taking to Instagram to share, Turnbull wrote, "I am considering running for the senate in the federal election. Yes, that's right I firmly believe Australia's younger generation deserve to have a louder voice and play a stronger role in how our country is run. I would be dedicated to being that voice," he said.
He followed up his announcement by asking a question to his following, Turnbull said, "In your opinion what things would you want to see happen or change to benefit Australians of all ages?" While many are in utter shock that the dating show playboy would try to run in the federal election, it sounds like Turnbull may be completely serious about creating change.
