This time, eight new players are joined by three pairs of returning contestants. Mr. Donato was paired with his estranged daughter, Danielle Donato, who was also a past contestant.
According to the Associated Press, Hatch filed the handwritten appeal notice June 29 in U.S. District Court in Providence, R.I. He is representing himself.
Federal Judge William E. Smith on May 9 rejected Hatch’s request to vacate his prison sentence.
Hatch spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on the $1 million he won on the first season of “Survivor.” He was released in 2009 and was ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed. A judge in March ruled that he never did and returned him to prison.
