Season Chronology
Previous: Kaôh Rōng

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X is the 33rd season of Survivor.

The season will use a variant of the tribe division twist previously employed in Survivor: Nicaragua.


Filming for the season was schedule to start in mid-March 2016, but had to be delayed by two weeks because of the effects of a cyclone that passed through the Fiji islands. The cyclone destroyed challenge props and the newly-built Tribal Council set, with the production team having "to scramble in two weeks to rebuild everything".[3] During the peak of the typhoon (Day 2), the castaways were evacuated from their beaches and were sequestered in a barren room located at base camp until the cyclone subsided. The survivors returned to their camps nine hours later.[4]


  • Millennials vs. Gen X: The 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes based on their age. The Vanua tribe will hold the millennials, while the Takali tribe will hold the Gen X castaways.
  • Third Pre-Merge Tribe: As in Survivor: Cambodia, a third tribe will be introduced at some point in the pre-merge stage of the game. The Ika Bula tribe will wear green.
  • Legacy Advantage: While the tribes were allowed to grab supplies for the game, an envelope containing the Legacy Advantage was up for grabs. It would grant its holder an advantage in the game, given that he or she makes it to Day 36. If he or she is eliminated before Day 36, the advantage must be willed to another player.
