Big Brother Winner Turns Out to Be Big Loser

The last few months have been a tough slog for the genre of reality television. Coming on the heels of the DJ AM and Ryan Jenkins tragedies is news that the winner of the 2008 edition of Big Brother, Adam "Baller" Jasinski, has been arrested as part of a DEA sting that saw him get pinched with over 2,000 OxyContin pills in his possession. The best part? He admitted that he used the $500,000 he won from CBS to fund his drug-dealing operation. Classic! [TMZ]
