Profile

Retrieved from CBS.com

Jenna Morasca models swimwear on a freelance basis while also competing in beauty pageants. She has won the Venus Swimwear competition two years in a row (2001 and 2002) and was second runner-up in the Miss Pennsylvania U.S.A. beauty pageant in 2001. Additionally, she is currently a junior at the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in zoology.

Morasca's hobbies include horseback riding, sleeping and hanging out with her animals (she has a dog, a ferret, three birds, two guinea pigs and a fish). She describes herself as honest, outgoing and funny. If she could hold political office, she'd be President of the United States so she could make all the important decisions. Her favorite sport is football. Her favorite teams are the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos. Her hero is her mother, who has been fighting breast cancer for over ten years. If she wins the money, she wants to buy a car and put a huge sound system in it, chrome wheels and detailing. She also wants to pay off her family's bills and take a trip to Italy with her mom and dad.

Morasca is currently single. Her birth date is February 15, 1981.[1]

Since being crowned Sole Survivor of SURVIVOR: THE AMAZON, Jenna Morasca continues to model swimwear on a freelance basis. She and fellow contestant Heidi Strobel posed for the cover of Playboy, which ultimately became the second best-selling cover of 2003. She also did an anti-fur campaign for the animal rights group PETA. Jenna got a chance to test her acting skills when she guest-starred in the Off-Broadway play "Pieces" in New York City, which ultimately led to an invitation to join the cast permanently for its six-week run. She has won the Venus Swimwear competition two years in a row (2001 and 2002) and was second runner-up in the Miss Pennsylvania U.S.A. beauty pageant in 2001. Additionally, she is currently a junior at the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in zoology.

Sole Survivor, Day 39

^1 In Sour Grapes, Jenna had won Individual Immunity, but gave it to Heidi during Tribal Council.

All-Stars

Jenna returned to Survivor and was assigned to the Mogo Mogo tribe. Jenna originally had plans to start an all-female alliance with fellow tribemates Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien and Shii Ann Huang, but things were quickly broken up when the first Survivor winner, Richard Hatch, overheard them scheming on the first day and reported it back to the two other tribe members of Mogo Mogo. Mogo Mogo need not worried though, as the tribe won the first two Immunity Challenges.

However, from Days 6-8, Jenna revealed that she wasn't as focused on the game, stating that she "felt a vibe" that her mother's condition was worsening. Kathy saw she wasn't eating and told her to eat something. When Jenna told Kathy about her mother's declining health, Kathy comforted her and told her she wouldn't hate her if she quit. When the tribes convened at the supposed Immunity Challenge in Day 9, Jenna decided to quit the game, regretting leaving her dying mother, who was in a battle with cancer. Amber Brkich from rival tribe Chapera gave Jenna a hug after getting Jeff Probst's approval. After Jenna announced she was withdrawing from the game, Jeff called in a boat for her, cancelled the Immunity Challenge and she received hugs from all remaining players in the game. While walking to the boat, Jeff told her they were thinking of her. She went home and rushed to her mother's bedside. Eight days after Jenna returned home, her mother passed away.
