CBS’ “Survivor” wants its first winner, Richard Hatch, back for a 10th anniversary edition that starts shooting next month, but first he has to get permission from federal authorities to cut short a home confinement sentence, the New York Post says.
Hatch is finishing a sentence, which also included time in jail, for failing to pay taxes on his $1 million winnings on the show. He also needs permission from authorities to leave the country. He petitioned for the permission Friday in a Rhode Island federal court. Although he hasn’t yet paid the taxes and penalties he said in his court filing that any winnings from the upcoming show would go to the government.
