The Richard Hatch that was NOT on "Battlestar Galactica"

It's character-defining moments like this which are precisely the reason I don't watch "Survivor".

He was already a millionaire and successful corporate trainer/consultant. This just goes to show that Sue was right in her final speech to him and the second place finisher. He's a snake (of course, as I recall, she called the other woman a rat and said that she felt better about voting for the snake).

She's also the one he apparently harrassed during the all star show. Fortunately, I missed that one. But naked guys generally should not simulate sex acts with unwilling participants, especailly when there are multiple cameras running.

Someone supposedly as smart as he is would have known better than to assume some one else would take care of the taxes. It seems to me like it's all ego here.

Oh, I've been following this story (admittedly casually) for a couple years, and this is the first time he alleged that the he struck a deal with producers claiming the other contestants had illegal food and friends helping them in the South Pacific. Funny how he wouldn't testify to that under oath. Now there have been other allegations about that first season, but this hasn't been one of the them.

He seems like he's turned out to be somewhat slimey, and has now besmirched the fine reputations of Mark Burnett and network TV.

What does this have to do with Battelstar Galactica?

Is he s cylon? He is a rather ugly one if so.....

I hear on the radio he DJed in Boston, for which he did not pay taxes on this 300k salary....of course to which the reporting DJ said "How did he swing getting paid $300k??!!!"

I used to have a crush on The Richard Hatch that WAS on "Battlestar Galactica." I still can't bring myself to watch the new "Battlestar Galactica". Edward James Olmos is no Lorne Green.

Have you ever noticed the opening credits of the "A-Team", when they show Dirk Benedict--the REAL Starbuck--a Cylon walks by? I noticed!!! I used to keep a "Battlestar diary".

I can't believe I admitted that...

That's always been my favortie A-Team moment.

At one point in the early 80's I was trying to figure out how to license the Viper desgin for a book I wanted to write about a group of kids who try to repel an Soviet invasion. Of course, they got to wear cloaks like in the orginal BSG, as well.

Then Red Dawm came along with it first ever PG-13 rating and kind of stole my idea so I moved on to other projects.
