'Survivor' Contestant Mad: $1M Prize Only ‘$600 Grand By the Time Obama Takes It’
(CNSNews.com) -- Jeff Kent, the former professional baseball player who was just voted off the "Survivor" television show, left with a parting shot at President Barack Obama -- and the amount of tax he would have to pay if he had won the $1 million prize.
“You know what pisses me off, is that I think I’ve made about $60 million dollars playing baseball and I want this frickin’ million dollars in this game. And it’s not even a million bucks, it’s $600 grand by the time Obama takes it,” said Kent, during the show’s ending credits on Wednesday.
“I’m a game 7 World Series loser. You know, I’ve played in the biggest games in the world and the worst games in the world, but this just sucks,” he said.
Jeff Kent is a retired professional baseball player, who played second base for most of his 17-season career. He won the MVP award in 2000 while he was with the San Francisco Giants, and is the all-time leader in home runs among second basemen.
Kent was a contestant in the 25th season of the CBS reality show “Survivor” set in the Philippines, in which the winner receives $1 million in prize money.
