SURVIVOR: Island of the Idols

Season 33 of Survivor kicks off Wednesday night. But even with a supersized 90-minute premiere, there are a lot of contestants to track.

There are your 10 Millennials, who we can only assume will be a collection of entitled free spirits who have never put in a hard day of work in their entire lives and can’t stop talking about how lost they are without their smartphones. And then there are your 10 Gen Xers, who will no doubt be yelling at the youngsters to “GET OFF OUR BEACH!” while complaining that those pampered whippersnappers have had everything in life handed to them on a silver platter.

Ah, stereotypes! Gotta love ‘em. But the fact remains that even with the extended 90 minutes, figuring out who is who can be difficult. So whom should we keep our eyes on? Who are the breakout characters of Millennials vs. Gen X? Well, Jeff Probst is here to tell us!

We caught up with the host at Survivor base camp in Fiji, where he told us the contestants that caught his eye for this upcoming campaign. Check out the video above to get the early inside scoop from the Hostmaster General!
