‘Survivor’ 10th Anniversary Party - Richard Hatch: ‘I Don’t Regret’ Being On ‘Survivor’

‘Survivor’ Star Hatch Released From RI Prison After 9-Month Sentence For Not Paying Back Taxes

Reality television star Richard Hatch has been released from a Rhode Island prison after serving a nine-month sentence for failing to pay back taxes.

A state prison official says the winner of the first season of the CBS reality show “Survivor” was released Monday.

Hatch served six weeks at a state minimum-security facility as a transition after spending most of his sentence in federal prison. The Newport resident had spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on his $1 million “Survivor” winnings. He was released in 2009 and ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed.

The 50-year-old went back to prison in March for violating the terms of his supervised release by failing to settle his tax bill.

Hatch had claimed he was “financially destitute.”
