* Jessica's exit from the game in ''Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X'', is heartbreaking. She really didn't want to draw rocks but she went to do so believing that it is her only shot at winning the game. As she ended up pulling the black rock, she was crying on her way out of tribal council, and in her final words she broke down again mentioning that if she flipped she wouldn't be sitting there. Not only that, but many of the cast members were crying at her sudden elimination- even Jay, who had a history of being brutal and hardcore and had no allies.

''[[DramaticIrony And she got the unlucky draw.]]'' As she ended up pulling the black rock, she was crying on her way out of tribal council, and in her final words she broke down again mentioning that if she flipped she wouldn't be sitting there. Not only that, but many of the cast members were crying at her sudden elimination- even Jay, who had a history of being brutal and hardcore and had no allies. Jeff even expressed dismay, modifying his usual EliminationStatement from "the tribe has spoken" to "the ''game'' has spoken" just to make it clear that no one had a hand in her elimination- a freak stroke of misfortune took her out of the competition.

* Debbie casting her vote for Brad to win the game and prefacing it with "It's good to know in this jaded, crazy world that good guys finish first." Sarah, the person who rubbed her the wrong way, ended up winning anyway, because Brad decided to browbeat Tai into submission.

*** It gets [[FromBadToWorse even worse]] when you find out that Varner was fired from his real estate job due to the negative backlash, because some fans of Survivor had contacted his work and demanded they fire him. Not only did he damage Zeke's life, but his own as well. Many fans are worried that he'll relapse in depression and become suicidal again and are trying to get his work to rehire him.

* Cirie's elimination in Game Changers. Despite being one of the biggest threats left to win, she is eliminated through no fault of her own when everyone plays immunity idols except her leaving her as the only person who can go home.

** Even worse as it has affected their friendship in real life. In a Skype conversation between the two he treated her like crap, and when she asked him what his family and friends in real life would think of him treating her like this, he tells her they don't like her.

* Zeke's betrayal of Andrea in episode 8 is especially hard to watch. The two of them are friends in real life, and seeing Andrea's reaction to his betrayal makes that even more disheartening, especially since she was the one to immediately jump to his defense when he was outed by Varner.

* The entirety of the ''Game Changers'' episode 7 Tribal Council. Varner had no one in his corner and saw an opportunity to make everyone flip their trust on Zeke by painting him as untrustworthy, but took it a step too far by indicating he was secretive of a fact that he didn't want to be shared- he was once a female. After Varner outed Zeke as transgender in an effort to save himself, the entirety of the tribe turned against him, as what he did was a personal attack that went way beyond the game. What makes it even worse is when Jeff hammers in the fact his just made this public knowledge to ''millions'' of people watching the show and there was absolutely no mention of this in Zeke's previous appearance on the show- his sexual orientation was the only thing viewers knew, but the vast majority would not have realized this was just the tip of the iceberg without intimately knowing Zeke or doing some morally questionable digging. Varner basically resigns from the game and the vote is completely skipped because everyone else on the tribe is unquestionably united in ousting him from the competition. When he says his parting words in the post-elimination confessional, Varner is in tears with his hands over his face in shame.

In fact, there was absolutely no mention of this information in Zeke's previous appearance on the show- his sexual orientation was the only thing viewers knew, but the vast majority would not have realized this was just the tip of the iceberg without intimately knowing Zeke or doing some morally questionable digging.digging into his personal history. In short, he ignored Zeke's confidentiality, did so in front of Tai, who himself is homosexual, made Sarah break down crying, and set a tremendously bad example of what one must ''never'' do on a competition- inflict irreparable damage to someone's personal life beyond the game so bad that it will never be the same when they go back to it- that will go down in infamy. Jeff even warned him of the ripple effect it would have on the LGBT community as well. Varner basically resigns from the game and the vote is completely skipped because everyone else on the tribe is unquestionably united in ousting him from the competition. When he says his parting words in the post-elimination confessional, Varner is in tears with his hands over his face in shame.shame, knowing he's going to bear a mark of disgrace for the rest of his life.
