Mark Burnett, the reality TV producer of Survivor, testified against the first sole survivor, Richard Hatch, in court last week. Burnett stated that all contestants signed an agreement with the show which stated that the constentants are responsible for all taxes on winnings from the show. Hatch is on trial on federal tax evasion and fraud charges and could face up to 75 years in prison should he be found guilty of all charges. He faces a total of 10 charges, including tax evasion, filing a false tax return, wire fraud, bank fraud and mail fraud. the U.S. Attorney claims that Hatch did not pay taxes on his “Survivor” prize money, income from a radio show and rental income. Additionally he is accused of using donations to his charity, Horizon Bound, to cover personal expenses. Looks like Hatch is going to be a rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-fat-naked-jailhouse-fag story.
