Original Survivor winner Richard Hatch has been ordered back to prison to serve nine months behind bars.

The reality star, who won the first season of the CBS series in 2000, was sentenced on Friday after failing to correct tax issues stemming back from money owed from both his prize fund and subsequent media appearances.

According to The AP, Hatch currently owes $2 million in both taxes and penalties, and his failure to refile his taxes from 2000 and 2001 caused the residing judge to impose the maximum penalty.

"You can continue to proclaim your innocence," Judge William Smith said during the sentencing. "It needs to be a severe punishment. That's the only thing that will deter you in the future."

Hatch served three years in prison between 2006 and 2009 for the same legal problem, after which he claimed that he would pay back everything he owed to the IRS.

Hatch is currently appearing on the NBC series The Celebrity Apprentice, and had been scheduled to appear on the show's live final on May 22.

The former Survivor star must submit himself to the authorities on Monday.
