Former 'Survivor' contestant revived with Narcan, accused of DUI

Former ‘Survivor’ winner Jenna Morasca is facing charges of DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia after she was found passed out in her car while stopped at a stop sign.

Morasca shot to fame and fortune and when won $1 million on "Survivor: The Amazon" back in 2003.

On Jan. 25, police received a 911 call from a driver who witnessed someone passed out behind the wheel at a stop sign near the McDonalds.


The license plate on the back of the car said "the Amazon" and the driver was Morasca.

According to the police report, Morasca was unconscious and the vehicle was still running. Police reportedly caught the passenger placing a Ziploc bag with syringes in her purse.

Paramedics arrived and administered Narcan.

They said Morasca was fighting and trying to bite them and continued to be combative in the ambulance where she bit a police officer on her arm.

In addition to winning the $1 million grand prize on "Survivor," she was also on Food Network's "Dinner: Impossible," 4th season of "Celebrity Apprentice," "Fear Factor" and VH1's "Celebrity Paranormal Project." Morasca was also a professional wrestler for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and most recently was on "The Amazing Race."

She's originally from Pittsburgh, where several women we spoke to said they were sad to hear the news. 

Morasca was taken to a Washington hospital and then flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital.
