Richard Hatch Does a Regis

06/09/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

"Survivor" winner Richard Hatch as a new Regis Philbin? The notoriously naked millionaire may have a new TV role -- as host of a game show based on the British program "The Weakest Link." The Associated Press reports that Hatch shot a pilot on Thursday in London, for NBC to examine with the possibility of producing an American version that would star Hatch as the emcee. On the show, losing contestants, after a rapid-fire quiz, get the boot with the dismissive remark, "You are the weakest link." The show is said to be a big hit in Britain. Meanwhile, Hatch's old competitor when they were back on the island, Rudy Boesch, has been busy on his own. The day Hatch was in London, the retired Navy SEAL from Virginia Beach was in the Virginia House of Delegates, which passed a resolution recognizing his military service. Never one to mince his words, Boesch was asked by reporters what he thought of TV's latest reality show, "Temptation Island." Sayeth Rudy: "They'll probably put that off the air for being too sexually explicit."
