As part of a potential reality show called Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office, the former Playgirl model, 20, says he will run for Sarah Palin's old job as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. There's just one hitch: He doesn't live within city limits, a requirement for the post.
His likely opponent, the city's current mayor, isn't fearful for his job.
"My advice would be get your high school diploma and keep your clothes on, voters like it," Verne Rupright said in an interview with the Daily Beast.
"We're going to get him out of office," shot back Johnston's manager Tank Jones. "How many politicians do you know named Verne?"
In his ongoing search for a personal revenue stream, the one-time oil field hand also just appeared in a music video. On Aug. 9, he played a heartbroken boyfriend for Brittani Senser's new song "After Love."
"His scenes were spectacular," says Senser, 26, who was Johnston's date at the Teen Choice Awards. "This video has to do with family members having to get involved with the end of a relationship."
By family members, she means the girl's mother in the video. But Levi may have a different mother in mind.
