Gilbert man who won TV show runs for Township Supervisor

Posted: Updated:
Gilbert, MN -

An Iron Range man, who won a reality show on national TV, has announced he's running for Township Supervisor in Biwabik.

Luke Soderling of Gilbert posted the announcement to Facebook saying, "It's official. I'm running for Biwabik Township supervisor! In the last few years I have participated in the long term planning committee and the building committee. During this time I've learned a lot about how the township functions and a great deal about the budget."

Previously, Soderling was a contestant of the Discovery Channel show, "The Wheel."

Soderling was one of six people picked for the show - a survival test, pitting contestants against the South American wilderness, moving them to different eco-zones on the continent at random. Their only way out was to push a button and give up the challenge, or survive the entire 60 days.
