Survivor winner Richard Hatch goes to trial on tax evasion charges


The first winner of my all-time favorite television show, Survivor, is on trial for alleged tax evasion. Richard Hatch is accused of not reporting to the IRS his earnings from Survivor, as well as not paying taxes on other income.

In a strange twist, Hatch’s attorney has stated that the Survivor producers made a deal with Hatch to pay the taxes on his winnings if he didn’t spill the beans about contestants whose friends were sneaking food to them on the island. It is not clear whether or not Hatch will testify about the alleged deal.
