SURVIVOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE
Survivor: Pearl Islands doesn't debut until Sept. 18, but TheSmokingGun.com just couldn't wait to expose the sordid secrets of this season's castaways. Oddly enough, her CBS press bio has already preemptively mentioned 24-year-old Christa Hastie's past arrest on a misdemeanor charge of "disrupting an officer's ability to perform his duties." (Translation: She once squatted on the hood of her car while it was being towed away.) But TSG has dug up some old Internet newsgroup postings from Hastie and fellow contestant Ryan Shoulders, 23 in which both made inquiries about scoring illegal drugs, like acid and methamphetamines. Oh yeah, and L.A. cops arrested Jon Dalton, 29, last February for DUI and driving without insurance. Hey kids, a big round of applause for your new role models!
