"Survivor" Season 33
is back end begins season 33 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on September 21, 2016. There are 20 castaways and they are broken up into two teams in order to embrace this season's theme of Millennials vs. Gen X. One group will be Millenials while the other will be the Generation X'ers. The official CBS
plot description for season 33 reads: It will feature 20 castaways, separated into two groups by their generation and forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast one another. Ultimately, one will be crowned the Sole Survivor and win the $1 million prize.
During the premiere episode, a cyclone hits the island and actually forces a mandatory evacuation. The twenty castaways get a taste of how tough Fiji can actually be ... Later on in the episode, one player gets a huge advantage in the game. We'll have to see how the cast members deal with it. In the meantime, let's check out this season's contestants in our season 33 cast gallery. (Photo: Monty Brinton/CBS Entertainment ©2016 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.)
