Survivor Where Are They Now?
ETHAN ZOHN & JENNA MORASCA
Scruffy soccer player Zohn won Survivor: Africa in 2002. Morasca, a model, bared all for Playboy after winning Survivor: The Amazon in 2003.
They began dating after Morasca’s win and both live in Manhattan (though not together). In August Zohn plans to dribble a soccer ball from Boston to Washington, D.C., to raise money for Grassroot Soccer, the charity he founded to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. Morasca is the new host of Pet Planet, an Internet series for Fox News Channel. Could a reality wedding be next? “I enjoy our relationship the way it is,” says Zohn, 34. Adds Morasca, 27: “I think it would be more fun to have a roast!”
In 2006 the affable yoga instructor from Santa Monica took home the million bucks on Survivor: Panama—Exile Island.
He poured his winnings into his hat company Tundragear.com and personally promoted the warm-and-fuzzy caps at the Sundance Film Festival last month. “Paris Hilton came in and wore one out!” says the single 26-year-old. He also released a yoga DVD and teaches four weeks a year at a camp for people with disabilities. Yoga, he says, “helps to get over the ego gratification that Survivor brought with it.”
The manipulative villainess schemed her way through the Australian Outback during season 2 (2001) and returned for All-Stars in 2004.
She keeps up with her famous hobby of fire-spinning, but her latest passion is working as a personal chef. She graduated from an L.A. culinary school last fall “at the top of my class,” boasts Manthey, 37, who still goes to acting auditions. “I realized why in high school there were people who just could not stand me because I’m a total overachiever!” And she has learned knives aren’t just for backstabbing: “I just got hired [for cooking lessons] by a very big celebrity, but I can’t say her name.”
When the show debuted in 2000, the gay “fat naked guy” helped Survivor become a big fat hit.
Two years into a 51-month prison sentence for evading taxes, Hatch, 46, whose latest appeal was denied this month, wants to take his case to the Supreme Court and “clear his name,” says his attorney Michael Minns. Denying rumors Hatch is faring poorly in prison, Minns says Hatch misses his partner and son but “he’ll make it through.” Said Hatch in a jailhouse interview with PEOPLE last year: “This isn’t what I signed up for when I played a game show well.”
SURVIVOR’S DAYTIME BREAKOUTS!
COLBY DONALDSON AND ELISABETH HASSELBECK
Donaldson, a custom auto designer from Texas, and Hasselbeck, a shoe designer, competed in 2001’s Outback.
They’ll never go hungry again. Both Survivors made the jump to full-time TV careers: Hasselbeck, 30—who has two kids with NFL quarterback husband Tim—is in her fourth year on The View. Meanwhile the single Donaldson, 33, has contributed segments on topics from dating to how to buy a car on the Rachael Ray show since last year. Survivor “was probably the best training I could get as far as being myself in front of the camera,” says Donaldson, whose next segment airs Feb. 25. (He’s also an actor who appeared in the 2005 thriller Red Eye.) One perk of working for Ray: “My eating has improved exponentially!”
