Jeff Kent lasted only 22 days on CBS’s hit show, Survivor: Philippines, and he’s not happy about being voted off the island. Take the jump to see what Kent had to say about his time on Survivor and what he really thinks about the other players.
According to People, Jeff Kent is a retired baseball player but he kept that part of his identity hidden from his tribe mates. “I absolutely cherished it,” he said speaking of the other players not knowing he played baseball. “It was great to go somewhere and not be put on a pedestal. I was happy to negotiate and be told no, and to communicate with these people who were 20 and 30-years-old. I’m a lot like these people.”
However, when it was time for Jeff to go, his bitterness came through and he couldn’t help but brag that he had made $60 million playing baseball. When asked about his comment, he said, “I’m a normal guy. I don’t live in a big old mansion and drive Ferraris. I wash my trucks, scout baseball, and go to church. I do all sorts of things that normal people do.”
Kent went on to bash Lisa Whelchel saying, “She never played the game. She stood around in groups and during the conversations said, “I’ll do what you tell me to do.” She never once showed in any conversation that she was trying to play the game.” Then he added, “She had no strategy at all.” Little did Jeff know, he wasn’t the only star on this season’s Survivor, Lisa is an actress known for her role on The Facts of Life.
But Lisa wasn’t the only one Kent has something to say about. He blamed Mike Skupin for his early departure. “He lied through his teeth to me,” Kent said. “He was a puppy dog through the entire game, really wishy-washy. He said he was on my side, but he really wasn’t. So I blame him.”
He continued to spew insults saying, “Abi is ornery; she probably p*ssed off her mother when she was born. Artis is quiet, reserved, and angry. Lisa is naive and isn’t cut out for the game. As for Mike Skupin, we called him ‘Stupin’ for a very good reason. He’s totally clueless.”
“These people weren’t playing the game,” Kent said. “They weren’t playing well at all. I got out there and was playing hard, but I think I was the only one sometimes.”
“I’m still upset about getting voted off. I hope I can get over my bitterness someday,” Kent said.
