Richard Hatch, the first man to win the $1 million prize on CBS’s "Survivor" and wound up behind bars for not paying the taxes on that money, has been released from jail after completing his sentence, according to the Associated Press.

Hatch had been incarcerated in a Massachusetts when he violated his early release in August by giving unauthorized interviews. Hatch must still pay the back taxes, complete a mental health program and serve three years of supervised release.
