Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson announces his plans to seek the Republican nomination for president on April 21.

Presidential hopeful Gary Johnson built a construction business from nothing, climbed Mount Everest, lives in a house he built himself, and once put out a forest fire with his feet. Oh, and as a two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, he cut taxes and put the budget in surplus.

And yet, no one seems to know who he is. So we've invited him to play a game called "All you've got to do is put out a viral video or a sex tape. Simple!"

It's hard to get noticed in the field of potential Republican presidential candidates, so we ask Johnson three questions about people who got really famous really fast.
