Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Audiences loved to hate Richard Hatch, yet they also could not get enough of his conniving antics on the small screen. The former corporate trainer literally bared all when he joined the first season of reality series juggernaut "Survivor" (CBS, 2000- ) - a grueling competition that pitted a group of strangers to "Outwit, Outplay and Outlast" the others in an exotic island locale, all in an effort to end up as the sole survivor. Hatch shed his clothes throughout the show, even receiving the nickname "fat naked guy" by David Letterman, and schemed his way to winning the $1 million prize. He also parlayed his pop culture success into feature film cameos, game show appearances, even a book deal. Despite making history as the first "Survivor" champion, Hatch's popularity quickly descended in 2006 after he was found guilty of failing to pay taxes on his "Survivor" winnings as well as other property earnings, and spent over three years behind bars. After his release from prison, Hatch joined the cast of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" (NBC, 2004- ), which allowed him to regain his notoriety as one of the most polarizing and intriguing figures to emerge from reality television.
