UPDATE: Jeff Varner is speaking out after being let go from his job at Allen Tate Real Estate—the latest repercussion following last week's controversial Survivor tribal council in which he outed fellow castaway Zeke Smith.
Varner spoke to Entertainment Tonight and described being fired as "an ugly, knee-jerk reaction" from his company.
"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," he revealed. "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."
