Sorry for the horrible headline, but this story is unbelievable. Richard Hatch, winner of the first Survivor, won a million dollars in front of 58 million viewers and didn’t report it on his 2000 tax return.
Federal prosecutors charged that Hatch, 43, failed to report his $1.01 million winnings from the CBS show, and did not report another $321,000 he was paid by a Boston radio station.
I think in a few days we’ll see another story about how it was just the radio station money and not the million dollar prize. There is no way Hatch could be that dumb.
