SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Former Major League Baseball MVP and San
Francisco Giants All-Star Jeff Kent was at a loss to explain his
elimination from the CBS reality show ‘Survivor’ on Thursday’s episode. [Posted by: Religio-Political Talk]
Kent, a Giants 2nd baseman from 1997-2002, was voted out just one
week after the cast of Survivor Philippines merged into one tribe.
Immediately following his ouster, he struggled to explain why the game
meant so much to him – before taking a jab at the president.
- “You know what pisses me off? I think I’ve made about $60 million
playing baseball, and I want this frickin million dollars from this
game; And it’s not even a million bucks. It’s 600-grand by the time
Obama takes it,” said Kent. “I’m a game seven World Series loser. I’ve
played in the biggest games in the world, and the worst games in the
world, and this just sucks.”
The comments can be viewed at the conclusion of the episode, which aired on November 7th.
During his time in San Francisco, Kent was known for clashing with
fellow superstar Barry Bonds. In 2008 he donated to the Proposition 8
same-sex marriage ban campaign, and was one of several Cal Baseball
players who made sizable donations to save that program in 2011.
