The winner of “Survivor: The Australian Outback" has logged another adventure: her first tandem parachute jump.

Tina Wesson, winner of the $1 million prize last May on the CBS reality TV show, was a guest Wednesday of the Army's Golden Knights parachute demonstration team.

Wesson and her instructor, who was strapped to her back, had about 30 seconds of free fall before the parachute opened at 5,000 feet.

“It went so quickly, I didn't have enough time to think about it,'' she said. “The rush of wind was so fast, I could hardly breathe.''
