Richard Hatch is back in prison and Donald Trump has volunteered to help the Celebrity Apprentice and Survivor contestant.
“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,” Trump told People.
This seems like it could be a spoiler–Trump’s own self-interest in having a finale with a non-imprisoned cast member–but Trump said, “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.”
Trump added that Hatch “wasn’t loved on set because it’s a competition but I will say he was respected,” so paying anything Hatch still owes to the IRS is “something I’d think about. He’s been a great character on the show.”
