When it was initially leaked that former big leaguer Jeff Kent was going to be competing on "Survivor" Philippines", conventional wisdom was that there would be no way any of the other 17 contestants would let the millionaire take home the million dollar prize.But, fortunately for the 2000 National League MVP, his team was winning challenges and dude was becoming a major player in the game. Heck, he became such a force that Katie Hanson, whom he helped vote out of the game complimented him during her exit interview. "Jeff Kent was playing the game from the get go. He knew the right people he wanted to align with," the former Miss Delaware told Hall contributor Gordon Holmes. "He was, in my opinion, the dominant male force on our tribe."Even friend of The Hall Albert Destrade, who placed third two seasons ago had an opinion. "Jeff Kent's stubborn inflexible "returner's can't win" agenda was ultimately his undoing. If he aligns with Skupin and RC the previous week, he probably wins the season," the former college baseball player said. "A perfect example if why you only make decisions if they inherently improve your chances of winning."Then, well, during Wednesday night's episode, the future Hall of Famer was sent packing...and if the Twittersphere is any indication, fans of the show weren't really upset to see him go.@jessica_babbitt: Nothing more entertaining than a millionaire with sour grapes. Stay classy, Jeff Kent.@SportsGrind: Boom! See ya later Jeff Kent, no million dollars for you homeboy @yageyman: Always thought Jeff Kent was a ahole as a Giant,even bigger one for getting the stunning RC kicked off.glad he got blindsided @ad442: Looked up "sore loser" in the dictionary. Saw Jeff Kent's face.@EmilyLOlson: Well there went any sort of illusion that Jeff Kent was NOT a total douche.Fittingly, Kent, who no doubt voted Republican on Tuesday, left with some harsh words toward no, not his fellow castaways...but Barack Obama. "It's not even a freakin' million bucks, it's only about 600,000 after Obama takes it all," Kent said.  "This just sucks."I guess when you've already got several million (he claims $60 million) in the bank, it's alright to be a little red-assed.

  • Doesn't claim he has 60 mil, says he's earned 60mil during his career.

    I did find it odd that he was so adamant regarding returning players not deserving the win, but had no problem with millionaire former athletes claiming the prize.
  • Alright Kent act like a pro that you were & keep your sayings to yourself. Obama won accept the fact & move on, just as the rest of the world has done. The election is over & if you keep shooting your mouth off, you'll be off. AGAIN ACT LIKE A PRO & appearently, you don't need the money anyway. So go home & enjoy your millions that you say you have & keep the trap shut before someone shuts its for you.
