Survivor: Borneo

As a member of the Tagi tribe, cocky and openly gay Richard Hatch had to fight in his season to ensure a win. In the game, Richard became close to 72 year old Rudy Boesch, who was, ironically enough, homophobic. Despite a very hostile relationship, the two bonded and created an alliance early in the game. After Sonja Christopher and Stacey Stillman were eliminated from the Tagi tribe, Richard and Rudy formed a voting alliance with the two remaining female members of the tribe, Kelly Wiglesworth and Susan Hawk, who also had a strong bond. MCPO(SEAL) Rudy Boesch, USN (Ret. ... Kelly Wiglesworth (born June 24, 1977) was the runner-up on the original American version of the CBS reality series Survivor. ... Susan (Sue) Hawk (born August 17, 1961 in Waukesha, Wisconsin) was a contestant on Survivor: Pulau Tiga (season one) and Survivor: All-Stars (season eight). ...


This solid 4 person alliance orchestrated the elimination of Dirk Been before the two tribes merged into one, Rattana. The voting alliance was criticized very heavily during the game, some even saw it as cheating. Little did they know that this would become the bare standard for the Survivor seasons to come. Once the tribes merged, they targeted the opposing tribe, Pagong, and eliminated Gretchen Cordy, Greg Buis, Jenna Lewis and Gervase Peterson in four straight tribal councils. Survivor can mean different things in different contexts. ...


Due to the rift in the relationship between Susan and Kelly, Kelly quickly became the new target of the now 3-way alliance between Susan, Rudy and Richard himself. Kelly 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 Kelly won immunity, and Colleen Haskell was voted off instead. When Kelly won immunity again, the 3-way alliance voted out Sean Kenniff. Colleens Survivor headshot Colleen Marie Haskell (born December 6, 1976) was a contestant on the first season of the American reality show Survivor. ... Sean Kenniff (born 27 November 1969) is an American physician who appeared on the first series of the television show Survivor (later called Survivor: Pulau Tiga), filmed and broadcast in 2000. ...


In the final four, Kelly 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), Richard and Susan were both in danger of elimination. But when asked to vote again, Kelly opted to eliminate Susan, cementing the end of their friendship. At the final 3 immunity challenge, Richard chose to eliminate himself early, trusting both Kelly and Rudy to take him to the Final 2 regardless. And when Kelly won immunity, she did exactly that and voted out Rudy, making him the final member of the jury.


In the Final 2, Richard was accused of being way too cocky and overall an evil person. But it was Susan's comments that really struck home. Comparing Richard to a snake, she claimed that she must vote for him as nature intended, because the snake must eat the rat, who was Kelly. Clearly shaken by this statement, Kelly would not acknowledge Susan after the show, opting not to hug her. In the end, Richard 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.


Survivor: All-Stars

Richard's appearance on Survivor: All-Stars was a very short but eventful one. As part of the Mogo Mogo tribe, they lost one member in Episode 3 when Survivor: Amazon winner Jenna Morasca quit to be with her dying mother. When the Saboga tribe was dissolved in Episode 5, Mogo Mogo gained two extra members and when they lost immunity, they immediately targeted Richard. Although Richard got wind of his impending doom and put together a counter strategy, his plans were foiled and he was voted out. Survivor: All-Stars is the eighth installment of the popular television reality show Survivor. ... Survivor: The Amazon was the sixth incarnation of the popular television reality show Survivor. ... Jenna, on the right, on the cover of Playboy, with Heidi Strobel (on left), August 2003 Jenna Morasca (born February 15, 1981 near Pittsburgh) was a reality TV contestant who was the million-dollar grand prize winner of Survivor: The Amazon. ...


But his stay was not without its share of controversy. The Mogo Mogo tribe encouraged Richard's nakedness in challenges, and in the immunity challenge in episode 5, he rubbed himself against opposing tribe member and fellow Survivor: Borneo alliance member Susan Hawk. While seemingly a joke at first, Susan took it very hard and opted to quit the game as a result in episode 6, the episode after Richard was eliminated.
