It looks like there may be more obnoxious players this season than usual and they are all on the Millennial tribe.tongue

[WATCH] CBS Announces the Cast of 'Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen. X'

Derek Stauffer
Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

CBS has revealed the next cast for the Survivor franchise. We already knew that season 33 of Survivor would pit two age groups, Millennials and Generation X, against one another. Now we get to meet all of the castaways who will be playing for the million dollar prize. Season 33, subtitled Millennials vs. Gen. X, isn't the first time that Survivor has tried something unique with the casting but it already looks very promising.

As the season subtitle suggests, the Millennials and the Gen. X castaways will be split into two tribes, at least initially, of 10 members each. The castaways' ages from the youngest Survivor player ever, 18, to 52. As host Jeff Probst points out in a video, embedded below, the season will have someone that everyone can relate to watching.

"You are either a Millennial, who might have a Gen. X parent. You're a 'Gen. X-er' who might have a Millennial. Or you're Baby Boomer who is a parent to a 'Gen. X-er' and maybe a grandparent to a Millennial," Probst explains. "So no matter how you look at it, our audience has some entry point they can relate to."

The tribe breakdown is as follows:

The "Vanua" Tribe (Millennials)

   Michaela Bradshaw (25) - Fort Worth, Texas - Vacation Club Sales
   Michelle Schubert (28) -  Yakima, Wash. - Missionary Recruiter
   Jessica "Figgy" Figueroa (23) - Nashville, Tenn. - Bartender
   Adam Klein (25) - San Francisco, Calif. - Homeless Shelter Manager
   Hannah Shapiro (24) - West Hollywood, Calif. - Barista
   Zeke Smith (28) - Brooklyn, N.Y. - Asset Manager
   Justin "Jay" Starrett (27) - Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Real Estate Agent
   Taylor Stocker (24) - Post Falls, Idaho - Ski Instructor
   Mari Takahashi (31) - Los Angeles, Calif. - Professional Gamer
   Will Wahl (18) Long Valley, N.J. - High School Student

The "Takali" Tribe (Gen. X)

   Rachel Ako (37) - Los Angeles, Calif. - Recruiting Director
   Sunday Burquest (45) - Ostego, Minn. - Youth Pastor
   Chris Hammons (38) - Moore, Okla. - Trial Lawyer
   Lucy Huang (42) - Diamond Bar, Calif. - Dietitian
   Bret LaBelle (42) - Dedham, Mass. - Police Sergeant
   Jessica Lewis (37) - Voorheesville, N.Y. - Asst. District Attorney
   Ken McNickle (33) - Denver, Colo. - Model
   Ciandre "CeCe" Taylor (39) - Granada Hills, Calif. - Insurance Adjuster
   Paul Wachter (52) - Sugarloaf Key, Fla. - Boat Mechanic
   David Wright (42) - Sherman Oaks, Calif. - Television Writer



Some of the initial impressions are that the model Ken seems to be placed on the wrong tribe with his Gen. X status. Though he technically falls into the right age category, none of his lifestyle seems to fit with his fellow Gen. X tribe members. Paul, who is griping about participation trophies, is already obnoxious.

Taylor seems doomed to burn out quickly on the Millennial tribe. The awkward Hannah could either be amazing or a total disaster, there is no happy medium. I have a feeling high school student Will might be the dark horse of the season.

These initial video interviews can be misleading. When they get out on the site and start interacting with the other cast members their true obnoxiousness can come out.
