Hatch was the fisherman of his tribe, a role he got into to ensure that he would be too valuable to vote off. Tangi was eventually merged with the Pagong tribe to a new tribe called Rattana.

He was seen as arrogant in the final tribal council. He was both praised and vilified for his leadership of the voting alliance. Hatch was compared to a snake by Hawk.

He spent most of his time fishing for sport, being the entertainer and lounging around camp. Hatch was eventually eliminated from the tribe after they lost immunity.

It was revealed in 2010 that Hatch was considered a strong candidate to return for the 20th season, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, as a villain. He was, however, unable to return because prosecutors refused to grant him permission.
