Former all-star second baseman Jeff Kent was a San Francisco Giants star back in 2000 when he won the National League MVP award. And now, he may be a star of primetime television on the 25th season of "Survivor."
According to SurvivorFever.net, a fan site dedicated to the show, Kent is rumored to compete on the upcoming season set in the Philippines, alongside former Miss Teen Utah Angelia Layton, actress Lisa Welchel and several new and returning cast members.
Kent did not immediately reply to requests for confirmation from The Huffington Post.
The 44-year-old is no stranger to the small screen: he appeared as a contestant on "Superstars" in 2009. Kent was paired with former Miss USA Ali Landry in a series of sports-related competitions.
However, since his baseball career, Kent is perhaps best known in California as one of Proposition 8’s strong supporters. According to Deadspin, the former star donated $15,000 to Yes on Proposition 8 in 2008.
