Jeff Kent and Blair from "Facts of Life" will compete on "Survivor."
Former Met Jeff Kent will appear on "Survivor: Philippines," according to Entertainment Weekly.

"I will win Survivor because I'm the best competitor out here," he tells the publication. "I've been competing my whole life. That's what I do. I'm not here for any TV stardom. Not here to look good on TV."

Lisa Whelchel, who played Blair on the "Facts of Life," also is a contestant.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
