Richard Hatch Speaker Profile
Richard Hatch was born April 8, 1961 and is the $1,000,000 winner of the first American Survivor series.
Hatch competed in Survivor: Borneo, the first edition of the show in the United States. He competed with the Tagi tribe, and quickly aligned with former Navy SEAL Rudy Boesch.
Once Sonja Christopher and Stacey Stillman were eliminated from the Tagi tribe, Hatch and Boesch formed a voting alliance with the two remaining female members of the tribe, Kelly Wiglesworth and Susan Hawk, who also had a strong bond. This left Dirk Been and Sean Kenniff as the only two to vote off. Dirk was voted off, and then Joel Klug was voted off of the Pagong tribe. A merge followed the elimination of Klug, and thus the tribes merged into Rattana at five members each. Sean Kenniff, the one remaining member of Tagi (not in the alliance), voted using an alphabet strategy. The tight four voted for Gretchen Cordy, while the other six votes were all different. Greg Buis was next to go as he received votes from the five former Tagi members as well as Jenna Lewis (who received the other three votes), and was next to go.
As the alliance continued to target the opposing tribe, Pagong, Jenna Lewis and Gervase Peterson were eliminated next.
Due to the rift in the relationship between Susan Hawk and Kelly Wiglesworth, Kelly Wiglesworth quickly became the new target of the now 3-way alliance between Hawk, Boesch and Hatch himself. Wiglesworth had opted out of the alliance, a move that Susan considered cowardly and simply a way to show off to the jury, thinking this assured her of winning. But Wiglesworth won immunity, and Colleen Haskell was voted off instead. When Wiglesworth won immunity again, the 3-way alliance voted out Sean Kenniff.
In the final four, Wiglesworth managed to win immunity once again, ensuring that one of the alliance would be voted out. In a 2-2 tie (the first tie in Survivor history), Hatch and Hawk were both in danger of elimination. But when asked to vote again, Wiglesworth opted to eliminate Hawk, cementing the end of their friendship. At the Final Three immunity challenge, Hatch chose to eliminate himself early, trusting both Wiglesworth and Boesch to take him to the Final Two regardless. And when Wiglesworth won immunity, she did exactly that and voted out Rudy, making him the final member of the jury.
In the Final 2, Hatch was accused of being way too cocky and overall an evil person. But it was Hawk's comments that really struck home. Comparing Hatch to a snake, she claimed that she must vote for him as nature intended, because the snake must eat the rat, who was Wiglesworth. Clearly shaken by this statement, Wiglesworth would not acknowledge Hawk after the show, opting not to hug her.
In the end, Hatch became the first ever Sole Survivor in a 4-3 vote, gaining the votes of Rudy Boesch, Susan Hawk, Sean Kenniff, and Greg Buis. Buis asked Wiglesworth and Hatch to pick a number between one and ten. Many speculate that if Hatch had picked the wrong number Wiglesworth would have won. But Buis later stated in interviews Hatch had his vote 100 percent and if Wiglesworth had picked the right number he would have simply changed the number.
While the voting alliance was criticized very heavily during the game (some even saw it as cheating), this would become the standard for every Survivor season to come.
