Embattled reality TV star Richard Hatch is facing the possibility of another two years behind bars amid allegations he violated the terms of his probation.
Hatch was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the first season of Survivor.

He walked free from a Massachusetts prison after completing a three year federal sentence for tax evasion in October, 2009 and began a three-year period of supervised release under the condition that he refile and pay his taxes on show winnings and other income.

According to, the federal probation office has now filed a complaint claiming Hatch failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns.

He is scheduled to appear in a federal court in Providence, Rhode Island on Monday to face the allegations.

The website reports Hatch could face two years behind bars if he is found guilty.
