Ok, folks, this one just goes to prove that stupidity is a crime punishable by law – and jail time. Richard Hatch, the winner of the first season of Survivor (you know, the gay guy that liked to run around the island naked, showing his coconuts to the world), was sentenced yesterday to 51 months in a federal prison for various tax-evasion issues. What did he do to upset the IRS, you ask? Well, for starters, Mr. Hatch failed to report the $1,000,000.00 that he won on Survivor.
Here’s a hint, Dick – if you win a million dollars on the most highly rated television show on the air at the time, chances are good that a few people might know about it, including one or two at the IRS.
