AGE 24 MARITAL STATUS Engaged OCCUPATION Computer Programmer HOMETOWN Los Angeles, CA
Born and raised in Ojai, California,
Christa Hastie currently lives in Los
Angeles and is engaged to be married to
a racecar driver. She is employed
as a computer programmer. As a child,
she worked as a model requiring her to
travel to Tokyo and the Bahamas. During
high school and college, she worked as
a lifeguard for four years.
She is most proud of earning a Bachelor
of Arts degree from the University of
California, Irvine, although she believes
her real education comes from living life
and diving into any and all opportunities.
Her favorite hobbies include creating
and designing websites, software and database
applications, turning wrenches on her
fiancÚ's race car and sewing fun
and unique clothes.
She describes herself as chameleon-like
(she claims she can fit in anywhere),
extroverted and genuine. She is a member
of the Sports Car Club of America so she
can be a member of her fiancÚ's pit
crew when he races. She considers
her late father to be her hero as he taught
her that the most important things in
life were to love, laugh and live.
She was once arrested for a misdemeanor
and charged with "disrupting an officer's
ability to perform his duties." While
in college, she hopped on her car and
refused to get off the hood when she discovered
it was in the process of being towed.
She believes she's an asset to her tribe
on SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because her
food making skills will prove helpful
to her tribe. Her birth date is November

little disclaimer: As with all Survivor
profiles, I am totally making all this stuff
up as if I actually have a clue. I do not
in any way know any of these survivors.
However, I've received many emails from
past Survivors complimenting me on my insight.
So, although I make this crap up, sometimes
I'm actually right.)
is the California Cutie. Just look at
her. Isn't she adorable? I have even copied
the CBS picture down here so we can look
at her some more. Isn't she just the cutest
thing? Not only that, but she was a model
as a child and has even been a lifeguard.
Woo-eee. I just can't get enough of her.
:: sigh ::
Boy, she sure is somethin'.
Just look at that smile and her pretty
Now that we've established that she's
attractive, what else can I say about
Let's see... I'm sure I can think of
It's coming to me...
Real soon, now...
Dang-it. It's just not happening.
And it seems as though even Christa has
the same problem. She was given one paragraph
to define who she is and what she's done
in her life. She could say anything, mention
any accomplishment, any skill, any talents
and interests that she may have.
But in this very limited space dedicated
to HER, what does she mention?
Well, she mentions her race car driver
fiance. Several times. In the very paragraph
that she was given to define WHO SHE IS.
Then she shares with us the little story
about how she hopped on the hood of her
car and refused to allow it to be towed
and got charged with a misdemeanor.
I wonder if her fiance's name is Jerry...
because Primus has a song called Jerry
is a Race Car Driver and it's pure
funkalicious beautitude. In fact, the
whole CD Sailing the Seas of Cheese
is simply a splended thing, especially
the song Tommy the Cat. I just
LOVE that song.
I've tried getting my band to play this
but the bass player can't play what Les
Claypool does. He is awesome, even though
he can't sing worth a crap. But what's
really cool is Primus' bass player, Les
Claypool, formed a band with Police drummer
Stewart Copeland and Trey Anastasio from
Phish. I think it was called Oysterhead.
Their stuff was incredible.
You know what I think would be cool?
I'd like to hear an awesome singer, someone
like Celine Dion who has just an incredible
voice but sings super crap music, play
with a jazz-fusion drummer, a screamin'
metal-head guitarist, and a funky-as-all-get-out
bass player. What a mix that would be!
That would be like, well you know how
when you're mixing chocolate chip cookies
and initially you throw the sugar and
the butter in. Work that up real nice,
then the eggs and the flour. But the flour
sort of just does its own thing for a
while, never quite blending in and then
just as you're about to go and buy one
of those wimp-ass sausage-like rolls of
frozen cookie dough, something happens
and the flour mixes in. You rejoice, add
the chips and then before you know it,
hot, fresh-baked, chocolate-chips-melting-on-your-fingers
cookies are soon sliding down your happy
throat, calories and excess carbohydrates
What was I talking about ?
Wasn't that creative? I described Christa
without really saying anything about her.
But I thought I should add that Christa
does seem to have a bit of a past when
it comes to seeking out drugs online.
