TheSmokingGun.com has discovered that there's no doubt that "Survivor" contestant Clay Jordan could actually use the $1 million winner's prize. The 46-year-old Louisiana restaurateur piled up debts totaling $420,250, according to a bankruptcy case that was closed out in January, just months before Jordan shipped off to Thailand for the filming of the CBS reality show.
The deadbeat Chuay Gahn tribe member was unemployed and collecting $949 in monthly unemployment benefits when a federal judge signed an order wiping away Jordan's whopping six-figure debt.
