Since the finale of "The Biggest Loser," Access Hollywood has been busy trying to figure out who John Rhode's celebrity doppleganger is - but the reality star himself has his mind firmly made up about who he now looks like since dropping an amazing 220 pounds.
Billy Bush and Kit Hoover had fun this past week picking out lookalikes on Access Hollywood Live, throwing around "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch, Kelsey Grammer, Randy Macho Man Savage, Stacy Keach, Bluto from "Popeye" and actor/comedian David Cross as matches - but John thinks he resembles an Oscar winner.

Now that he's back in the wild, Richard Hatch has a bone to pick with Uncle Sam. Make that several. Hours after he was released from a Rhode Island correctional facility for tax evasion, the original Survivor champ and later Celebrity Apprentice scourge tells E! News exclusively about the "horrendous" living conditions he had to endure in the pokey the last few years and why he considers himself a victim of injustice by the legal system. "It's very, very difficult to be absolutely innocent and continue to be persecuted the way I have been," Hatch tells E! News. "It's just a tragedy. People don't understand how broken our court systems are and particularly corrupt the system in Rhode »
Reality TV star Richard Hatch has been released from prison after serving nine months behind bars for tax evasion.
The Survivor star was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million (£625,000) cash prize he won after appearing on the first season of the American reality show.
Hatch walked free from prison in October 2009 after completing a three-year federal sentence, but was ordered back behind bars earlier this year for failing to file his 2000 and 2001 tax returns.
Hatch attempted to get his nine-month sentence reduced on the grounds the punishment was "unreasonable" for the crime, but he has now completed the full stint.
The TV star served the last six weeks of his sentence at a state minimum-security facility as a transition after spending the majority of his jail time in a federal prison.
The 50 year old was released on Monday and told the Associated Press he was "happy" to be walking free. »
Richard Hatch has been released from prison after serving a nine-month sentence. The first-ever Survivor winner was jailed in March in relation to tax issues stemming from his $$1 million prize on the CBS competition, which he won in 2000. A state prison official told The AP that Hatch was released on Monday. Hatch previously served time in jail in 2006 for not paying taxes on his prize money. He was allowed to leave on supervised release (more) »

Survivor winner Richard Hatch would have been cast on Survivor Redemption Island instead of its eventual winner, Rob Mariano, but Hatch was not permitted to participate by a court, he said upon being released from prison again today. We previously knew that he was offered Heroes vs. Villains but a judge said no. "Boston Rob took my place and won the million dollars, which I would have done, in this last Survivor show," Richard told »

In many ways, Hatch was the first reality show celebrity after winning Season 1 of "Survivor" through conniving, manipulative behavior and pixelated nudity. However it was the $1 million prize which was also the source of his downfall.
Hatch was sent to prison in 2006 after he was found guilty of not paying taxes on "Survivor" winnings as well as other additional earnings. Then he went back to jail in 2009 after not keeping up with the terms of his release.
In addition to being on the first season of "Survivor," Hatch also appeared on "Survivor All-Stars" and "Celebrity Apprentice."
So how long until Hatch re-enters the reality TV world?
Maybe Richard Hatch has learned his lesson now. The first-ever Survivor winner and Celebrity Apprentice also-ran was released Monday from the minimum-security lockup he was tossed in after failing to comply with the terms of his release from federal prison in 2009. A spokeswoman for the Rhode Island Department of Corrections confirms that he was picked up at 1 p.m., their time, and—what do you know—immediately granted an interview to a local TV station. Hatch was reimprisoned in May, first in Brooklyn and then West Virginia, after again failing to make good on income tax owed dating back to his 2000 Survivor win. He was transferred to the Adult Corrections Institutions in Cranston, R.I., on »
Since our first edition was so popular, AfterElton.com now brings you Part 2 of “Hot Men of Fall TV”, where we take a look at a whole new crop of sexy actors from the upcoming fall season. This bunch is particularly “gay-friendly”, featuring as it does several actors who in many cases made their names portraying gay characters.
It bears mentioning again, however, that the network’s upcoming programs are sadly lacking when it comes to representing actors of color. In a television climate that’s seeing such great strides in the depiction of Glbt characters, we can only hope network executives won’t lose sight of the fact that boosting the number of racial minorities on the small screen remains an important goal.
Before turning to TV and movies, openly gay actor Michael Arden was a successful Broadway star with a string of well-received performances under his belt. »

Anderson Cooper says that he's amazed by how viral the video of him giggling has gone. As for how silly it was, he says "I mean, I’ve always giggled like a 13 year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet and greet. There’s nothing I can do about it but I’ve never not been able to stop." It's sentences like that which will make his daytime show a success.
He'll need it to be a success to pay for continuing restorations on the firehouse he bought to live in. But the outdoor work is done, and the building looks stunning with new windows and the paint stripped from the brick and the stonework.
Speaking of newly minted daytime stars, Katie Couric has picked out a name for her new show, set to premiere in Fall 2012: Katie. Yep, a first name seems to be the standard for a new daytime show, »

Richard Hatch has appealed to have his nine-month prison sentence for tax evasion charges lowered. The original Survivor winner was put back behind bars in March after it emerged that he failed to pay an estimated $$2 million in taxes and penalties relating to his prize from the CBS show. Hatch spent three years in prison back in 2006 for the same charge, but failed to follow through with his promise to refile his taxes from 2000 and 2001 - the year of his Survivor victory. The 50-year-old has since argued (more) »

Incarcerated reality TV star Richard Hatch has asked a judge to amend his nine-month jail sentence, insisting the punishment is too harsh for his crime.
The troubled star was convicted in 2006 for failing to pay taxes on the $1 million (£625,000) cash prize he won after appearing on the first season of America's Survivor.
Hatch walked free from prison in October 2009 after completing a three-year federal sentence for the crime, but was ordered back behind bars earlier this year for failing to file his 2000 and 2001 tax returns.
He is due to be released in December - but Hatch wants federal appeals court officials to cut short his jail time and throw out the case, claiming nine months is "unreasonable" and far exceeds the prosecutor's three-month recommendation, reports the Associated Press. »
Forget Christmas, Richard Hatch wants out of the big house right now. The Survivor winner and Celebrity Apprentice star asked a federal appeals court to chuck the nine-month prison sentence he received earlier this year for failing to pay taxes on his million-dollar Survivor winnings. Hatch appealed to the court Thursday, arguing in a brief that the sentence he received was unreasonable and exceeded prosecutors' recommendations by three months. And that's not all. The reality star is requesting that the appeals court either toss out his case or order further hearings. If this situation sounds vaguely familiar, it's because this isn't Hatch's first time trying to cut »
Television used to be so ... uncomplicated.
You knew that the TV season ran from September to May, and the summer months were a barren wasteland, and you could spend that time doing "summer" things, such as surviving piranha and shark attacks, attending summer camp near crystal lakes, finding a dead body near the train tracks that would lead you and you buds to learn life lessons about friendship, and oh, oh, those summer nights!
Occasionally (as you'll see), the networks would throw something new up during the summer that would catch the eye, but it's only been during the last decade or so that networks such as HBO, Bravo, and Syfy have discovered that there's actually a huge audience for fresh programming during the months of June, July, and August.
Check out these memorable shows, all of which debuted in the months when it was still fashionably legal to wear white. »
If you're like us, you spent the week looking at those candid shots of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in swim suits on the beach saying to yourself, that Beiber kid really has a great body. So now let's catch up on the week in Soup. 1. Lady Gaga: Her Gaganess got all dressed up in her crowd-pleasing circus-witch wardrobe and shuffled her schtick over to The View this week, only to have loose-lipped Joy Behar drop some intimate poop on a secret shared between their respective vajayjays. One down. Keep going for more yucks. 2. The Celebrity Apprentice: Former Partridge Family member (that was a sitcom, kids, not a cult of satanic bird killers) David Cassidy doesn't like Richard Hatch. Who can blame »
Los Angeles, California (X17online) - In a drama-filled season sparked by rivalries, Donald Trump was able to find a winner for this season's NBC Celebrity Apprentice winner: John Rich. The final challenge on Sunday night involved promoting a brand of soda and John Rich and Marlee Matlin paired up to perform the song, For the Kids. While Rich sang, Matlin, who is deaf, signed the lyrics. Then came the highly-anticipated announcement. Trump chose Rich, the singer of the music group Big & Rich, earning quarter-million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Matlin chose to support the Starkey Hearing Foundation. The majority of the season's contestants returned for the live finale, but Richard Hatch, who's back in jail for tax evasion, was not able to attend. Although Trump chose the country star, he did not fire the Academy Award winner, Matlin. »
In the end, there could only be one, and although Donald Trump promised to “do something a little different,” he picked the person most people expected he would pick, John Rich, as his Celebrity Apprentice champion. The country crooner chatted with EW.com about his experience on the show, being hit on by Star Jones, burying the hatchet with Busey, and his “hardest task of all,” which had nothing to do with 7Up. Read on after the jump for the full Q&A.
There was a little bit of controversy over you raising $275,000 on what was not a fund-raising task. »

Just before the final decision was announced on Sunday night - the final challenge had involved promoting a brand of soda - the pair performed a song, "For the Kids," which Rich sang and Matlin, who is deaf, signed.

hollywoodnews.com: Tonight’s finale served as a reunion for nearly all of this season’s cast of “Celebrity Apprentice”—that is, all except for Richard Hatch. The former “Survivor” winner and convicted tax evader enjoyed the finale from prison, if he was given the chance to enjoy the finale at all.
During the show’s opening moments, Donald Trump immediately shed light on Hatch’s whereabouts, questioning the show’s first casualty, David Cassidy, about his feelings towards Hatch’s situation. Asked Trump, “You had a huge fight with Richard Hatch, and now he’s in jail. How do you feel for him? Do you feel badly for him, or couldn’t you care less?”
Cassidy’s response was, erm…interesting. The former “Partridge Family” star waxed vitriolic about Hatch. Said Cassidy, “I think he, actually, is in the right place at the right time; I »

It’s the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ season finale!
John Rich’s team included Lil’ John, Star Jones and Mark McGrath, and thankfully John was able to put his ego aside in order to make amends with Def Leppard. The band got their way when John decided to nix the kick drum idea.
The entire cast came back to sit and watch the finale, but also to talk smack about each other in front of a studio audience. Everyone, that is, except Richard Hatch who is now »
