During the end credits of Wednesday’s episode of “Survivor,” contestant Jeff Kent left with a parting jab at the re-elected president, saying the $1 million prize he just lost would be “only $600 grand by the time Obama takes it.”
Kent — a former professional baseball player — was a contestant in the 25th season of the CBS reality show “Survivor,” set in the Philippines.
“You know what pisses me off” Kent said, “is that I think I’ve made about $60 million dollars playing baseball and I want this freaking million dollars in this game. And it’s not even a million bucks, it’s $600 grand by the time Obama takes it.”
“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.
