Insufferable Millennials Saved by Insufferable Storm on ‘Survivor’ Premiere

George Back

Survivor 33 premiered on Wednesday, and this season pits Gen Xers (Takali Tribe) against millennials (Vanua Tribe).

The contestants were dumped onto a small island in Fiji, where they subsequently battled it out for camp supplies and the immunity challenge.

The Vanua tribe garnered the most attention. Taylor described himself this way: “My generation, it’s all about doing what you want to do, and I’ve done a lot: beekeeper, I brewed beer, snowboard instructor, I’ve gone to North Dakota.” The tribe goofed off instead of building shelter, and it cost them when a storm rolled in that evening. Tribe member Hannah said, “You could feel people mentally breaking down. It felt like it was endless, I could hear the booming, the thunder and the lightning, and we saw the storm from far out in the water making its way to us. It was like this monster was coming to get us and punish us for not building a shelter.”

Fortunately for the millennials, they only had to endure one night of misery because the storm was upgraded to a cyclone and for the first time in 33 seasons the contestants were evacuated.

Survivor airs Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m./7:00 p.m. CT on CBS.
