'Survivor: Philippines' Zane Knight: 'This is my season,' curious to see how it plays out

Zane Knight received the dubious honor of being the first castaway sent home from "Survivor: Philippines." He tells Zap2it that his strategy of coming in and playing so hard was the only way he thought he should play.You really came out guns blazing in the game -- why was that your strategy?"Both barrels.

Lisa Whelchel and returning castmembers Michael Skupin, Russell Swan and Jonathan Penner aren't the only familiar faces viewers will see on tonight's (Sept. 19) 90-minute premiere of "Survivor: Philippines." Retired Major League Baseball All-Star Jeff Kent, 44, is starting this season on Penner's Kalabaw tribe. The record-setting second baseman had a reputation in the league for his quick temper, but he seemed downright serene when we chatted with him before the game began in the Philippines. But a lot can change when you have to endure rain, hunger and exhaustion, all while trying to outwit, outlast and outplay your tribemates. "I can snap, absolutely," Kent acknowledged to us.
