Survivor lands on CAA beach

Skein victor awash in proposals

“Survivor” million-dollar winner Richard Hatch is eyeing a much bigger race: He has signed with the Creative Artists Agency, management firm Pure Arts and publicist Polaris PR.

Hatch, who Wednesday was in Gotham for a third appearance on David Letterman’s show, told Daily Variety: “I don’t know what my plans are. I am mulling over a million different offers.”

Reps for Hatch said he is exploring opportunities to work as an on-air commentator and appear as a guest on various television shows. Hatch has been hosting a radio talkshow this week in his home of Providence, R.I.

As far as acting, Hatch said: “I have never acted. I wasn’t even in a high school play.”

All over TV

Outside of Letterman, Hatch’s forthcoming commitments include “Good Morning America,” “Rosie,” presenting at the MTV Music Video Awards and commenting at the Emmys for “ET.”

In addition to his recent book deal with St. Martin’s Press for mid-six figures, Hatch has accepted a deal with Reebok.

Among the more bizarre offers that have already come his way are to be a spokesman for Trojan condoms and to spend some time in a nudist colony.

For 15 years, Hatch had been a corporate trainer and consultant.
