SURVIVOR NEWS: RICHARD HATCH SENT BACK TO SLAMMER FOR 9 MONTHS
Here we go again. Original Survivor winner Richard Hatch was ordered back to jail for nine months due to continuing legal issues involving his failure to pay taxes on the one millon dollar prize he won on the show's first installment. Hatch, who is currently competing on the taped Celebrity Apprentice, was on probation after his first prison stint but apparently he failed to follow up on the court mandated order to clear up the tax issues. He will have 26 months supervised release with 25 percent of his income ganished in order to pay back his debt. With good behavior Hatch could be out in five months.
Analysis: Unreal. For someone that is so seemingly intelligent and well-spoken, Hatch has proven himself to be a real idiot when it comes to this tax crap. Just pay it and be done with it. You won a million bucks and so you got the money to do it. The fact he allowed this to happen again is just absurd. This also destroys any remaining "hope" of seeing him on Survivor again.
