Looks like Chris Cuomo pulled his application for a blue-collar job after having been fired from CNN.

The 51-year-old former news anchor Chris Cuomo was fired last year from CNN over revelations that he helped his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, combat sexual misconduct allegations. The disgraced CNN host reportedly leaned on his media contacts to gather information about his brother’s accusers.

In March following his brother’s sexual harassment scandal, Chris filed a $125 million lawsuit against CNN that encompassed demands for $15 million in lost salary as well as $110 million for additional damages. Shortly after he lost against the network, Chris is trying to make a drastic career

According to The Daily Beast‘s Confider newsletter, the former CNN prime-time host applied to be a volunteer firefighter in his swanky East Hampton neighborhood, however, his application was withdrawn shortly after meeting with the fire department chiefs. The outlet adds that while he was “eager” to become a member of the squad, he wasn’t able to handle the time commitment.

“It’s a very time-consuming thing. There are monthly meetings and drills and you have to meet a percentage of your calls,” EHFD Chief Duane Forrester said. “That’s why we don’t have many celebrities.”

Balked at the time commitment, well, what else does this guy have to do?

Here are some comments from folks online:

“Blue collar jobs require actual skills in said trade. They aren’t going to hire you because you were once famous. Work needs done.”

“Hey he’s gotta hit the gym to work those glamor muscles. No guarantee he’ll get that same all around workout as a volunteer fireman.”

“Cuomo qualified for…??”

“He’s not qualified for anything.”

“LOL, nothing like a self described celebrity. He apparently viewed being a fireman as brother viewed being a farmer.”I could teach anybody, even people in this room, to be a farmer”. IOW, If something is on fire you just pour water on it, I don’t need any training to do that.”

“welcome to the real world Chris where regular people have to work full time and actually do stuff”

“He only wanted the gig for a monthly shirtless pic for Instagram “time to untangle this big hose..you know what I’m talking about ladies”. He balked when the bullshit stuff like “meetings” got in the way. Why would a stud like him have to endure that?”
