He couldn’t get the girl, but can he get the votes? Bristol Palin, mother of Levi Johnston‘s son Tripp, broke off her engagement to the former Playgirl model recently but he seems to be jumping right back on his feet – by running for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Levi’s almost-mother-in-law Sarah Palin famously held the seat before becoming governor of Alaska.
Fortunately, it looks like Levi’s run may be slightly bogus – Us says the whole ‘campaign’ will be documented for Levi’s reality show, Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office. Whew.
The show’s executive producer Canaan Rubin released a statement outlining the show. “The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska… [the] series will chronicle a ‘no-holds-barred’ period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for his fellow Wasillians. He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics — right after he gets his high school diploma.”
