‘Survivor’ winner sentenced to 51 months in prison
Providence — Richard Hatch, who won $1 million in the debut season of Survivor, was sentenced Tuesday to 51 months in prison for failing to pay income taxes on his reality TV prize and other earnings.
Hatch, 45, was convicted in January. The charges carried a maximum of 13 years in prison.
Hatch, who has been in a jail in Plymouth, Mass., since his conviction, claimed he thought the show’s producers would pay his taxes and pleaded ignorance about money matters, saying he forgot to tell his accountants about some income.

Survivor earned CBS a ratings hit and made Hatch one of TV’s most famous villains. He also became known as “the fat naked guy” — a term coined by David Letterman — for refusing to wear clothes for much of the show.
… but I’m hoping they make a reality series out of his incarceration. Which I wouldn’t watch anyway even if I wan’t going to cancel my cable. But i like the idea of it. Conceptually.
~ I totally need another internet hang-out for when no one’s posting on LJ and the old Mal board. I guess I could make more Flickr contacts so that there’d be a greater likelihood of updates there… Peter’s blog is pretty good but the Star Wars debate died and the Cobain vs. Tupac debate never really got off the ground. I suppose admitting I knew NOTHING of Tupac was an admittal of defeat.
~ It’s cooling off which is actually making me upset because now I have no use for my fan. It’s still in my car even… sigh…
