There may be as many “Survivor” jailbirds as there are “Survivor” winners at this point, and this latest one is both.

Season 21 winner Judson Birza (better known to viewers as “Fabio”) was arrested Wednesday in Santa Monica for being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to TMZ.

The reality TV dude was pulled over — on his skateboard — yesterday afternoon for riding in the street, which is against the law. During that time, cops determined Jud was “acting strangely” and he was placed under arrest.

Birza was taken in and charged with being under the influence; he was also booked for an unrelated DUI warrant and probation violation.

He was held in jail on $37,000 bail, but he shouldn’t have had too much trouble making bail.

Thanks to his stoner dude persona, “Fabio” was underestimated by his tribe mates on “Survivor: Nicaragua” — and went on to win the million dollars.

“Dude, this is such bulls–t … I got treated like a baby,” Fabio told TMZ upon his release from jail early Thursday. And then he got picked up in a white limousine.
