Maybe Jeff Probst will come to Richard's aid as well! What do you think, Jeff?
Okay, so maybe only Donald Trump has got Richard Hatch's back, but that's a pret-ty powerful ally to have on your side!
Former Survivor winner/Celebrity Apprentice contestant Richard Hatch has turned himself in for a nine-month jail sentence today, which he'll serve as a result of unfiled/unpaid taxes…unless Donald can work his Trump magic, that is.
Here's what The Donald had to say about his desire to help out Hatch:
"It sounds like a very tough predicament. I may ask him if there's anything I can do… I may get involved and ask him what the hell is going on."
"He wasn't loved on set because it's a competition but I will say he was respected. [Helping Hatch is] something I'd think about. He's been a great character on the show."
"If he makes it to the finals – and I'm not saying he is – I'm sure we can get him time off for good behavior."
Wow! After all this time, looks like Richard Hatch MIGHT get out of jail early AND might get his debt paid off.
Way to give positive reinforcement for negative behavior, Donald!
Do U think Richard Hatch deserves The Donald's help? Or not so much?
