Former Survivor: Game Changers contestant Jeff Varner, who outed tribe memberZeke Smith as transgender was voted off the show and promptly fired by his employer after the episode aired.

Varner was a former real estate agent with Allen Tate Realtors in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In addition to Varner’s quick termination, the President and CEO of Allen Tate Companies, Pat Riley, released a statement in rebuke of his former employee.

“The Allen Tate Companies were built on core values of honesty, integrity and respect. Those fundamental beliefs led us to end our relationship with Mr. Varner, a real estate agent who had become affiliated with our firm just 17 days earlier,” Riley said in a statement to uInterview.

“To be clear, at no time before the airing of the Survivor episode on Wednesday evening was our management aware of his actions on that episode. We make all decisions such as this one with careful consideration of our clients, employees and our agents,” Riley concluded.
