Outlasting Susan Hawk, Rudy Boesch and Kelly Wiglesworth, Hatch became the sole survivor from the 16 who marooned themselves on remote Pulau Tiga at the seriesʹ launch in May. The final choice — between Hatch and Wiglesworth — was handed down by a jury of seven former tribe-mates. Their vote was a squeaker: four to three. And yup, heʹs gay!
