'Survivor' Winner Richard Hatch Moved To Halfway Home From Prison

'Survivor' winner Richard Hatch has been moved to a halfway house from the federal prison where he was serving time for failing to pay taxes on his winnings.

The 48-year-old, who was sentenced to four years and three months, has now been moved from the federal prison in West Virginia to a halfway house in Pennsylvania, where he will be held for the next five months.

Hatch was convicted in 2006 for federal income tax evasion after he failed to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he took home on the first season of the reality show.

He claimed CBS producers told him they would take care of his taxes.

Hatch won 'Survivor' with a 4-3 vote in 2000. He returned to participate in the All-Stars edition in 2004, but was the 4th one voted out of the game.

However, even in his short stay on All-Stars, Hatch tried to bend the rules of the game by smuggling a canister of matches "in a little container up his bum," as 'Survivor' host Jeff Probst put it in a recent interview.

The result was that the 'Mogo Mogo' tribe was able to get fire early in the game.
