'Celeb Apprentice' Contestant Ordered to Prison

3/14/2011 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Hatch -- the guy who won $1 million on Season 1 of "Survivor" -- has been ordered to surrender to U.S. marshals by NOON today to begin a 9-month prison sentence for not paying taxes on the prize money.

Hatch had filed a request to delay his surrender until he could get his business affairs in order ... but earlier today, the judge shot down the request ... which means Hatch better get his ass over to his nearest marshals station ASAP.

Hatch is currently a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice" -- and though most of the season has already been taped ... the finale will be LIVE in a couple of months.

So, if by chance ... Hatch makes it all the way to the final 2 ... Trump better make sure he can broadcast from behind bars!

UPDATE: Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal David Remington tells us Hatch has officially surrendered to authorities.

I'm not a fan of either Hatch or Trump, but it'd be my guess that even if he wasn't already "fired" by the finale...Trump would fire him simply for this.

I didn't like the way he belittled David Cassidy and bumped him out of the way when he walked by on Celebrity apprentice and lied about it. He is an egotistical jerk. Even on Survivor he was a p rick. Karma has come back and slapped him in the ass. The only thing is, he will enjoy it in prison...lots to choose from.

*** HE IS REALLY KIND OF STUPID: HE DID NOT EVEN MAKE AN EFFORT TO REPAY ANY OF HIS DEBT WHICH SHOWS A COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR THE COURTS AND PAROLE WHICH IS WHY HE IS GOING BACK TO PRISON AND ANYWAY, WHO GETS $1 MILLION DOLLARS AND DOES NOT PAY THE TAXES ON IT? ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WERE INITIALLY NICELY ASKED, "HEY, WE (the IRS) HAVE NOT BEEN PAID OUR TAXES, ARE YOU PAYING THEM?" JUST STUPID. ***

*** PS., DAVID CASSIDY LIVES NEAR ME AND IS A REALLY NICE GUY AND BASICALLY KEEPS TO HIMSELF BUT MET HIM AND WAS VERY SWEET - HAD SOME TROUBLE WITH THE COUNTY A BIT NORTH WITH A DUI AND HE COMPLETELY COMPLIED WITH COURT RULES - RICHARD HATCH SHOULD TAKE SOME LESSONS FROM DAVID CASSIDY BOTH PERSONALLY AND WITH TAXES. ***

Celebrities Suck    

TMZ instead of showing gross ads/food such as kfc on your background layout why don't you put up a picture of healthy foods? Look at the people that work at TMZ most of them are fat do you really think they need to eat K F C?
