(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 Obama -- and the amount of tax he would have had to pay if he’d won the million-dollar 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.

Kent 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.
