    'Survivor' Winner Arraigned on Tax Evasion

    Richard Hatch, who rose to fame as the first winner of the "Survivor" TV series, was arraigned on charges of tax evasion on Tuesday for not declaring more than $1 million in earnings. He was released after surrendering his passport and paying a $50,000 bond

    Hatch, 43, a Rhode Island resident, was formally charged in federal court in Providence after prosecutors said he failed to declare the $1 million he earned for beating out all other contestants on the hit reality TV show in 2000.

    Hatch, a corporate trainer and consultant, is also charged with failing to declare the $10,000 prize he earned for appearing on the series' final episode and more than $300,000 he earned the following year from radio appearances.

    The charges against Hatch carry a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

    Geez. Did this guy really think that he would get away with this? I personally never liked Richard Hatch. So, I guess that I could say, "It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy."
