25. Richard Hatch
A man synonymous with Survivor — the show’s first winner — Richard Hatch. Hatch was an immediate villain on Borneo. A polarizing figure due to his perceived arrogance, Hatch proved to be a shrewd player from the jump. He created the first alliance — which controlled the game — was an excellent fisher, and fared well in the challenges. Hatch is often remembered for his arrogant ways and penchant for removing his clothes, but his game shouldn’t be forgotten. He won six challenges en route to becoming the first Sole Survivor. Hatch returned for All-Stars, but was eliminated as soon as his team lost a challenge. Due to legal troubles, Hatch has not returned to the series — despite multiple attempts to return to action.
