Richard Hatch, the winner of the first season of Survivor, is smiling right now. Not because he's finally out of jail for tax evasion, but because he's no longer the biggest reality show winner douchebag. The Big Brother CBS threw together for their 2008 WGA Strike barren winter schedule has given us a new champion in Adam Jasinski.
Sure, Hatch didn't pay his taxes on the cool million he won. But at least he didn't take those winnings to try and become a drug lord. Big Brother 9 winner Adam Jasinski has been arrested for major drug trafficking, according to Access Hollywood. He was found with 2,000 oxycodone pills in his possession and admitted that he'd been funding his would-be drug empire with the $500,000 he won from the CBS reality show.
So was the screening process a little lax on this one, because of the haste in which season nine was thrown together, or is this kind of thing pretty hard to nail down.
Interviewer: "So, um, Mr. Jasinski. Tell me, if you were to win the half a million dollars, would you consider funneling that money into illegal drug distribution."
Jasinski: "Oh, oh. Interesting question. I'm thinking I probably would."
Jasinski faces 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines if convicted, so let's hope that he at least doubled his money somewhere in all that drug trafficking. Otherwise, he might need to go on another reality show to score some serious scratch.
Hey, it could have been worse. At least he didn't murder anyone ...
