John Rocker: "Survivor is the worst thing I've ever done"


John Rocker was a guest on Toucher & Rich this morning (the interview was recorded yesterday; the audio is below). Rocker and his girlfriend Julie McGee are contestants on this season of Survivor, which debuts tonight. The former Braves reliever of course got asked about his infamous SI interview with Jeff Pearlman — he maintains that it was taken out of context, though regrets using the word “queer” — and cut off a steroids question with a complaint that they weren’t plugging Survivor. He was not here to talk about the past.

A CBS PR woman cut in and asked the hosts just to focus on Survivor.

“Okay, let’s talk Survivor.

“I can sum it up by saying it’s the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
