Survivor's Jeff Varner Was Blindsided By Firing from New Job

Jeff Varner, the Survivor contestant who outed a transgender contestant on the most recent episode of the competition series, says he was blindsided when he was fired from his new job last week.

The reality star just started a new job as a real estate agent earlier this month and he was fired the day after the episode aired.

“I wasn’t even given the chance to explain or right the wrong,” Jeff told Entertainment Tonight. “In the real estate world, buyers and sellers want to know they’re signing up with a company that won’t dump them or turn their backs on them in time of trial. So I’m talking to several firms now that I know will care about and believe in their employees. I have had several reach out [and] I’m confident I’ll find a better home.”

Jeff says he learned of his firing from the media and never even got a call from the company to alert him to his status.

“As I’m spending hours doing press [on Thursday], I discover I can’t access my email. Then the MLS association emails to say, ‘You’ve been terminated.’ I didn’t even find out from my company,” Jeff added. “Suddenly my real estate license was inactive and my current clients [were] left in the dark. It took hours after my press junket to get anyone with the company on the phone to tell me personally, and even longer to calm my clients, all of whom, by the way, are coming with me to my new firm. It was an ugly day. My former boss told me that I was in a news story they wanted nothing to with.”

“I was devastated,” he added. “[I warned the company that headlines might be coming], but apparently not the people who needed to hear it.”

    I watched Zeke at the Glaad awards. He had no hard feelings. In fact, he and Jeff Varner talk to each other a lot. So, stop all the hate, people! Yes, Varner was wrong in doing that, but cool it!!!!
