The Smoking Gun has uncovered various drug-related information about three Survivor Pearl Islands cast members. While Christa Hastie‘s CBS bio mentions she “was once arrested for a misdemeanor and charged with ‘disrupting an officer’s ability to perform his duties,'” it doesn’t mention that she posted messages about methamphetamine and “getting the most out of your cocaine” on publicly accessible newsgroups when she was in college. She’s not alone: Morgan tribe member Ryan Shoulders posted about “the difficulty of scoring acid” and elsewhere about “tripping.” Additionally, Christa’s tribe mate Jon Dalton “was arrested last February by Los Angeles cops for driving under the influence, a misdemeanor,” the site reports.
