Season 33

Survivor winner Adam

Adam Klein became the 32nd person to ever win Survivor last night, winning a unanimous final vote over Hannah and Ken. Adam’s journey towards victory was one of the most emotional the game has ever seen, with the fact that Adam was playing the game while his mom suffered from lung cancer, and as we learned last night, succumbed to the illness just one hour after Adam returned home from the season.

I had the chance to chat with Adam today about his time in the game, his story, and his take on this season and all-things Survivor. Click continue reading for the full transcript.

Survivor finale

As Boyz II Men famously stated, so now we’ve come…to the end, of, the road. Yes, the Finale of Season 33 is finally upon us, capping off what can only be described as an exciting, unpredictable, and thrilling season of Survivor. We enter tonight’s two-hour finale with six remaining players vying for the million dollar prize and title of Sole Survivor. You’ve got three remaining Millennials: Adam Klein, Hannah Shapiro, and Jay Starrett. You’ve got three remaining Gen-Xers: Bret LaBelle, Ken McNickle, and David Wright. One of these six will become the 32nd person to ever win Survivor…one of their names will go down in history.

Let’s get you set and ready for tonight’s big finale, followed by the one-hour live reunion show, and take a look at the chances each of the remaining six have at winning the game.

Survivor

And with the blink of an eye, we’ve already reached Episode 13 of Survivor‘s 33rd season…the last episode before next week’s two-hour finale. Where has the time gone? These season has kept fans on their toes throughout, so it’s no surprise that tonight will undoubtedly feature even more drama, when not one but TWO contestants go home. Yes, there will be two Tribal Councils tonight, whittling the remaining castaways down from eight to six after tonight is over. And I wouldn’t dare say that the producers are trying to “fast-forward” through some meaningless tribals – the last time I said that, we were treated to two of the best Tribals in recent memory.

So let’s get you primed for tonight’s penultimate episode!

Survivor

So have you recovered fully from last week’s explosive ep? Have you had enough time to digest both your turkey dinner and the epic rock draw that capped off Survivor‘s special pre-Thanksgiving double episode? Well I hope so, because things are not slowing down at all. It’s hard to believe we’re down to just a few episodes left this season, and you always know the end is near once the famed “loved ones” episode hits the airwaves, as it will tonight.

Yes, after what was one of the best Tribal Councils ever, Jessica (and earlier, Chris) are now part of the growing jury that will reward this season’s Sole Survivor. We are down to just nine remaining players, so let’s get cued up for tonight’s big episode and see who we think might just be in the best position to win this thing.

IF

Unlike contestant and television writer David Wright, I’m ready for Survivor!  The 90-minute Premiere Episode of Millennials vs. Gen-X blew in like a tropical storm just upgraded to a cyclone, and in its wake it scattered a number of likable castaways all over the island, representing two of the most annoying generations of America (I belong to one of them, so I can say this).  The “Survivor culture war” was on and within the first day, battle lines were drawn.

So let’s not take any short-cuts, even if Jeff Probst offers us any.  We’re about to dig right into Episode 1 of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X…and because this is a “recap,” that means that I’m either assuming you saw the episode, or you are wanting to know what happened.  I’ll always try to keep headlines and the first few paragraphs “spoiler free,” but spoilers are definitely coming if you haven’t yet seen the episode.  We’ll assume this pertinent information moving forward through the seasons.  So with that…
