Richard Hatch

Richard Hatch is a celebrity unlike any other celebrity I have profiled here. He became famous as the $1,000,000 grand prize winner of the first installment of the hit reality show, Survivor back in 2000. He went from parading around discussing his Survivor victory and hosting a $300k+ radio show host gig after Survivor to serving a prison sentence for tax evasion and spouting conspiracy theories to deflect criticism from himself.

Hatch was born on April 8, 1961 in Rhode Island. Hatch is an openly gay man and searched for direction for many years as a young adult. He spent five years in the United States Army, two of which were at the United States Military Academy where he studied management. However, Hatch dropped out of the Military Academy after two years. Hatch also spent some time studying Oceanography and Marine Biology at Florida Institute of Technology, and General Studies at George Mason University, and a Masters' program in Education and Counseling at Providence College in Rhode Island.

Hatch adopted a son named Christopher because his gay lover was incapable of bearing his children. However, Hatch experienced some parental difficulties and was arrested and charged with child abuse in April 2000, after his son alleged to a school official that his father had pushed his face in the ground while doing push-ups. The charges were dropped a month later after a judge ruled that Hatch's son had exaggerated the details of the incident.

Back in 2000, Hatch was working as a corporate trainer when he found out that a new reality show was auditioning contestants by asking them to send in videotapes of themselves showing off their personalities. Hatch sent in a tape and was selected to appear on the first installment of the hugely successful Survivor reality show. The first season was entitled, Survivor: Borneo.





In Survivor: Borneo, Hatch was marooned with 15 other contestants on the Borneo island in Malaysia. The 16 contestants were initially divided into tribes of 8 contestants and one contestant was voted out at the end of each episode. The contestants generally had to fend for themselves in large part and Hatch was a valuable member of his team because he was physically strong, a good swimmer and fisher, and showed leadership skills. He famously formed a secret alliance with several other of his teammates, including the crusty former Navy SEAL, Rudy Boesch.

Although Hatch was a strong contestant, he did annoy the other contestants by periodically parading around the island naked with his balls and ass hanging out for the world to see. Hatch would occasionally sit naked on logs at his tribe camp, disturbing other contestants and rendering the logs unusable and reeking of the smell of ass. About his nakedness, Hatch said, "It's funny when I hear, 'How come you're naked all the time.' I'm naked less then 1% of the time. I'd like to be naked all the time. That would be smarter in this 100 degree weather."


One of his tribe mates, Sean Kenniff, assumed that Hatch was walking around naked because he wanted to hook up with some of the other male contestants or possibly even the camera crew. Kenniff said, "If there's any horny gay men out there that want a horny guy in return, I know one."


Hatch celebrated his 39th birthday while on the island by stripping naked. Hatch said, "I'm 39 today and I had intended for quite a long time to celebrate my birthday naked."

Another tribe mate, Jenna Lewis, said, "It felt awkward sitting next to a naked gay man. If he had something to cover the butt crack area, I'd be cool with that."


Rudy Boesch said, "When I go home, if my wife asks me, 'Who was with you," I'll say the queer who ran around bare-ass half the time." Despite his disapproval of Hatch's homosexual lifestyle and nakedness on the island, Hatch said, "Me and Richard got to be pretty good friends; not in a homosexual way, that's for sure."

Hatch's secret alliance proved to be successful as he was one of the last two contestants on the show. Hatch eventually won the $1 million grand prize in a close vote over the second place contestant, Kelly Wiglesworth.

Survivor: Borea aired for 13 weeks between the end of May and August 2000 and proved to be a tremendous success. The finale of Survivor was reported watched by 51.7 million viewers, making it the second-highest viewership of any American television episode during the first decade of the 21st century, exceeded only by the finale of Friends.

The success of Survivor: Borneo made Hatch a big star in 2000 and he was showered with offers. Hatch accepted an offer to co-host "Wilde Show," a Boston morning radio show for a salary of over $320k. Hatch also wrote the motivation book, "101 Survival Secrets: How to Win $1,000,000, Lose 100 Pounds, and Just Plain Live Happily" that was published in October 2000.

Hatch was having the time of his life as a big star during the early years of this decade. He even appeared on the Australian version of the popular game show, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," where he famously answered the $500 question incorrectly and left with no prize money.

However, Hatch's massive ego and hubris eventually led him astray as Hatch thought that he was invincible. Hatch never paid any taxes on the Survivor grand prize or the $320k+ that he received from his radio co-host gig. The IRS eventually came after he for unpaid taxes in 2005, and stated Hatch would be charged with filing a false tax return. Hatch initially agreed to plea guilty in exchange for a lenient sentence. However, Hatch withdrew from the arrangement, claiming that CBS had arranged to pay his taxes before awarding him prize money back in 2000.

Hatch's withdrawal from the plea agreement apparently pissed off the IRS, as they aggressively pursed their case against him. Hatch was indicted in 10-count indictment for failing to report income from Survivor and his radio show, as well as additional charges that he failed to report rental income from properties he owned, failed to declare an automobile he won on Survivor, used money as personal income that was paid to a charity organization he had set up, and submitted false tax statements.

A jury found Hatch guilty of tax evasion, although he was acquitted of seven bank, mail and wire fraud charges. On May 16, 2006 Hatch was sentenced to 51 months in prison, plus three years of supervised release after serving his sentence and began serving his sentence immediately. I wonder whether Hatch walked around naked throughout the prison like he did on Survivor. If so, one has to wonder whether his sphincter "survived" his prison sentence. Hatch served nearly a full 3 years in prison until being released on Thursday, May 14, 2009 to serve a period of home confinement.

On August 18, 2009, he was re-arrested and taken into federal custody for granting two supposedly unauthorized interviews with Access Hollywood and Rhode Island NBC affiliate WJAR. During the interviews, Hatch mentioned that he was broke and bitter about his predicament. Prisoners under house arrest are required to get permission from the federal Bureau of Prisons before any media contact. Hatch remained in prison until October 16, 2009 when he was released.

Notwithstanding the various felonies that Hatch committed, he maintains that he was prosecuted for committing his various felonies because "he is gay."

Richard Hatch rose from obscurity to be one of the most discussed celebrities in 2000 trough his cunning strategies that he implemented in his appearance on the smash hit Survivor: Borneo. However, Hatch quickly lost all of his money and the good will he had earned by evading taxes and then landing in prison for several years after foolishly spurning a plea agreement with the IRS. Hatch's arrogance and rapid fall from grace show that there can be no doubt that Richard Hatch is one washed-up celebrity!

*** Update - April 10, 2011 ***

Richard Hatch recently appeared on Celebrity Apprentice. Hatch made it through the fifth week before being "fired" after failing to sell artwork during a competition on the show.

Hatch was also sent back to prison for another nine months in March 2011 for tax evasion. Hatch reportedly still owes that IRS $2 million in taxes and penalties. Hatch is also being pursed by Malaysian authorities for failing to pay taxes on the $1 million he won in 2000 on Survivor. Hatch has been all but begging someone to give him the money to pay off Malaysian authorities!

Timmy Geithner committed tax evasion but served no prison time.

So why should Hatchie? Boo on this post.

Nards of Goat said...

I have so wanted this guy to pump my ring full of nut muck ever since I saw his flabby physique on Survivor! He'd be my special teddy bear I could cuddle with and hump whenever I wanted. Dick, we need to make plans...Survivor OUR way, baby!!! *kisses*

Classic! LOL!

He probably granted the interviews so he could be re-arrested and get it up the ass more in prison because he missed it.

Perfect timing thanks to the 10th anniversary of Surivior.

I hope we don't have to wait another three/four months for another one.

Igor Neigh said...

Even if you are cool with faggotism, you'd have to hate this guy because he is a grade A tool. I think he went to prison on purpose so he could help his fat ass to a smorgasbord of man glue. I read somewhere that he took so much cocksnot in his rectal cavity that it glued shut and he had to shit out his dick hole. Hows that million bucks working out for you now, faggot?

Thanks for adding another washed up celebrity. Could you please do one on Boner,aka Andrew Koenig??

Thanks!

Why don't you delete ignorant posts like the little rant by "Igor" above? Don't you read them?

Hatch went about getting prison ass the wrong way. He should do as I do and become a prison officer that way you get to slam ass daily, get a cool uniform,a big old love stick and a salary for pumping ass all day!!

ken kaniff said...

HMmmmmmmmmmmm. I would love to melt in this motherfuckers ass and all over his face. I would love to pin him to the ground and force jagged rocks down his asshole and punch his balls into his guts.

This site could be a GREAT site if the gaps between entries weren't so long. It makes one sort of say "screw it."

Movie Fan said...

^^^ Sorry for the delay. I write on this blog in my spare time and have been very busy lately.

FYI, I am about halfway done with a new entry on Leif Garrett.

Jewvebeenframed and Igorneigh rule! Excited about the new Leif Garrett entry. Do you solicit writings from outsiders?

Ah, Leif Garret -- an entry long overdue! Can't wait. He's a gold mine!

I can not wait to read your entry for Leif Garrett!!! I so wish you would update this site more often. Your work and witty style of writing is so funny and entertaining. I showed this site to a few friends of mine and we are absolutely head over heels in love with it.

Keep up the great work!

did it ever occur to anybody that he never actually committed any crime?
There is no law (a statute backed by a regulation) that requires any body to file any tax return form or makes anybody liable to pay any income tax period, the end!
yet, even if Richard knew of this "TRUTHFUL STATEMENT" you'd think he could have just skipped the country with all "HIS" money.hmmmn?
well not so fast, our corrupt government is fraudulently in bed with many other countries.
see exposing documentary at www.freedomtofascism.com
this illegal extorsion of our bill of rights, the us constitution and private property must be stopped. our corrupt court and IRS are not going by the laws on the books and instead are illegally extorting money from the american people both here and abroad.
willy nelson, welsey snipes and irwin schiff among many others should be exhonorated from all falsely aquised charges and or released from incarceration.
personal income tax evasion is not even a crime!
if you doubt then find the exact law that disproves this "FACT"!
the law bidding citizens are waiting.
us citzens who legally choose to claim "exempt" on their w-2's
and choose to not file any return
are lawfully allowed to keep all of their "wages" and pay "NO" taxes if they desire.
this is all proven in the above documentary! watch it and then try to prove it wrong.:)

This guy reminds me of some cocky politician who thinks the whole world revolves around him. Like they say, Karma's a bitch, and sooner or later, she catches up with you.

If you a gay man wouldn't prison be a paradise to you? Richard just needed to find a studly husband who would make him his bitch or slut it up with all the men.

Funny these dorks who try to claim "There is no law saying we have to pay income taxes!" Then you see their dumb ass in jail for violating the imaginary law.

Richard Hatch is on Celebrity Apprentice 2011 with fellow washed up celebrity Jose Canseco and other has beens. Gary Busey, once again, is looking insane. Speaking of which, have you ever thought of an entry on Gary Busey?

Movie Fan said...

^^^ I actually like Gary Busey. He does and says some crazy things, but it is actually an intentional part of his shtick.

He still gets lots of roles. He has recovered from serious injuries after nearly dying from a bad motorcycle accident during the late 1980s and has overcome drug addictions and has reportedly been clean for over a decade. Also, as far as I know, he still has his money.

Even if he is appearing on Celebrity Apprentice, I still don't think he is washed up.

Anonymous said...

I didn't know all that about Gary Busey, so never mind. He has been through a lot, so I have to give him some credit.
On another note, I know Canseco is already on your list, but you should see him on Celebrity Apprentice--he looks disgusting!

Anonymous said...

Looks like he's off to the slammer for another nine months to do some more "hard" time. I bet he's been primming his ass with a big black dildo in preparation for the rectal wrecking crew he will be housed with...I'm sure he'll be sportin' a big ole wizards sleeve when he gets out.

Jailhouse Cock said...

There's something I don't quite understand. Dicque made 1 mil for Survivor and $320K for a Boston radio show. That's documented, but I don't believe all the other income this shitchute pulled in over the last decade totals over a couple hundred thou, yet he owes the IRS 2 million and Malaysia about $300K. Now I know he's a dumb fuck and is probably trying purposefully to get sent to the slammer for some free convict crankshaft, but how does he owe so much? Is it all in penalties and fees, or are a ton of people secretly buying his his cumshot cookbook? I mean, what is up here? How fucking dumb do you have to be to owe 2.3 million on 1.3 million in income? Maybe he should have paid his taxes instead of using his cash to buy motorized ass-dildos covered in caviar and K-Y.

Arbi Baraev said...

regardless of how much spunk this guy takes up his ass on a daily basis or his jail sentence he is washed up by default because he is now on celebrity apprentice, a show with other undeniably washed up has beens. he is washed up by association. based on how he is such a douche on that show just liek survivor, he is probably going to be spit roasted by jose cancseco and david cassidy as punishment, but since he is gay he might think this is the finalist's reward.

Sinéad McMurdiggan said...

I agree. NO HATE FOR GAY PEOPLE!!

Sinéad McMurdiggan said...

That is because you live in a country where the government commits thief on a regular basis....
The actual law does not exist, but people think it does so they do not question it and bow down to the capitalist gods...You're seeing The Emperor's New Clothes...Enjoy!

Sinéad McMurdiggan said...

Jay-sus!! I respect gay people, but you give them a bad name!! Probably your intention in the first place. You, sir, as a person, are vile.

Who is this dirtbag again?

Anonymous said...

You realize you people (and the article's author) are making jokes about rape? What, rape is OK if the victim is a gay male? You don't have any fucking morals.

Anonymous said...

I agree. People that make rape jokes are pathetic. It's easy to be so brave with your statements online, when everything is so anonymous. How is a gay man being raped different than a straight woman being raped? It's the same thing. I really hope all of the ugly and ignorant posters on this page never have to deal with someone they love being raped. It would sort of be fitting for them personally to experience it - since they think its so funny - but I hope they don't have to experience it either. I hope they just get consumed by their own hatred, and die a sad, lonely death in an underfunded, state run nursing home.

Richard Hatch made a cameo on the season finale of "Survivor: Caramoan" earlier this month. He was on a beach (I don't know where, but probably somewhere warm), and once again, he was naked for the camera (he removed a cloth to reveal his blocked out genitals).

I do not know if he has paid off all of his tax liabilities or not.

Richard buddy, some (tax) free advice. PAY YOUR TAXES!

If your a gay man wouldn't prison be a paradise to you... how stupid is that? Most gay men are absolutely TERRIFIED of going to prison, just like most non-criminal straight guys are! They are nothing short of abusive mind & body destruction camps. Most guys who talk poop about gay people are ignorant bullies who resent that society makes it hard for straight men to get laid. They don't understand sexuality much at all... Most of them don't really care for or understand women that much. This type of guy is generally Racist, Sexist, Homophobic & pretty hateful. Sound familiar? You know you know a few. Sooo.... This blog should be called "The Whipping Post".
