Ken Bone Wants to Keep His Vote a Secret: Find Out Why

Live from Las Vegas … It’s Ken Bone! The viral star of the second presidential debate headed to University of Nevada, Las Vegas, for the final showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Wednesday, October 19, to report on the evening for Jimmy Kimmel Live! Watch his guest appearance in the clip above!

When Jimmy Kimmel asked the famously undecided voter if he watched from the audience, Bone responded, “No, I’m tired of that. I’m at the UNLV Student Union here at their watch party.”

However, the St. Louis- area resident still hasn’t determined if he’s casting his ballot for the former secretary of state or the business mogul on November 8. “I have not decided, and after I have decided, I promise I’m not going to tell anyone, even you. Even though I love you,” he told the talk-show host.

Bone explained the rationale for keeping his political preference a secret. “Once I tell anyone who I’m voting for, I kind of lose my opportunity to just say, ‘Get out and vote.’ I don’t care who you vote for,” he said. “I just want everybody to get to the polls and make their voice heard. And if you listen to the fat guy from St. Louis, you’re not listening to your own heart and conscience.”

Finally, Kimmel asked Bone the question everybody has been wondering: Has he washed that red sweater yet? “Well Jimmy, I must have because it’s shrinking,” he joked.
