From TAX GIRL Kelly Phillips Erb’s post “Note to Game Show Contestants: Big Brother Really *Is* Watching” (highlight is mine) -
“Jasinksi, the winner of CBS’ ‘Big Brother 9’ pleaded guilty today to failing to file a tax return for 2008, the year that he won the $500,000 grand prize. Of course, he may have been a bit dazed and confused that year. It seems that Jasinski also has a drug problem. He was arrested last year and charged with attempting to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills; he had previously sold drugs to a cooperating witness. According to an affidavit filed in court, Jasinski told a DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent that he used some of his game show winnings to buy the pills so that he could resell them.”
I am still waiting for someone of normal intelligence to tell me exactly what “entertainment value” there is in watching self-absorbed brain-dead fools acting like self-absorbed brain-dead fools.
