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 fiancé'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 fiancé'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 6, 1978.
