Things just got a whole lot worse than hearing, "You're fired."

Richard Hatch, who's currently appearing on The Celebrity Apprentice, was ordered back behind bars on Friday. He will serve a nine-month sentence for failing to pay taxes on his $1 million prize from the first season of Survivor.

The reality star previously served more than three years for tax evasion. He has been under supervised release and was supposed to re-file his taxes and pay what he owed from 2000 and 2001, but failed to do so, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"It needs to be a severe punishment," U.S. District Court Judge William Smith told Hatch during the sentencing. "That's the only thing that will deter you in the future."



Hatch was also ordered to serve 26 months of supervised release. During that time, a quarter of his gross income will be paid to the Internal Revenue Service. Hatch now owes an estimated $2 million, according to the report.

He is set to report to prison on Monday.
