Found November 07, 2012 on Hall of Very Good:
PLAYERS: Jeff Kent

Via Hall Of Very Good:

 

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...especially when you finish tenth.

  • 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.

Jeff Kent gets booted from Survivor, is a sore loser, mad at Barack Obama

I don't think I've seen an episode of Survivor since the days Elizabeth Hasselbeck wasn't a Hasselbeck.  That's been about 63 seasons ago and somehow the show is still around.  Evidently, former San Francisco Giants second basemen Jeff Kent was booted off the island last night and was none too pleased.  While you can watch the entire tribal council thingy here...

Jeff Kent’s ‘Survivor’ Departure Was The Most Jeff Kent Thing Ever

I don’t watch much reality TV, let alone any of the CBS blockbuster Survivor, but I’d been keeping my ear to the TV in the other room this season as my girlfriend watched, because as a rule, anything that involves Jeff Kent is usually outstanding. That’s not to say that I like the former San Francisco Giants second baseman. But he has built one of the greatest a-hole reputations...

Better Late Than Never: Your Jeff Kent Moment Of The Week:

This contains a spolier alert. But here's the thing: this was the one week where we decided to wait until Thursday to watch Survivor. And of course, this was the week where the outcome was spoiled for me. And if it was spoiled for me, chances are it was spoiled for you too, since it's pretty much all over the Internet. So here goes: The tribe has spoken. Jeff Kent is gone...

Jeff Kent Voted Off ‘Survivor,’ References 2002 World Series, President Obama (Video)

Jeff Kent is just a normal guy — like the typical Major League Baseball ticket buyer, really. At least that’s what he’s insisted. Millions of dollars, All-Star profile and fights with Barry Bonds aside, Kent recently participated on the newest edition of Survivor, which was always an interesting choice considering his known ornery personality from his playing days. Apparently...
