Survivor's Jeff Varner Fired from Job After Outing Zeke Smith

Jeff Varner, a contestant on the latest season of Survivor, was fired from his job the day after an episode aired in which he outed a fellow contestant as transgender.

On this week’s episode, Varner tried to paint contestant Zeke Smith as a deceptive person for not revealing to his tribe that he is transgender. After showing remorse and regret for his actions, he was voted off the show in a unanimous decision.

Varner has revealed that he was fired from his job on Thursday, just one day after the episode aired. He said that he was told that he is “in the middle of a news story that we don’t want anything to do with,” according to the Greensboro News & Record.

It appears that Jeff only just started his job with Allen Tate Realtors last week as he tweeted about his first listing as a real estate agent on April 7.
