Adam Klein is crowned the winner of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
The 25-year-old homeless shelter manager from San Francisco, CA was voted the Sole Survivor of the thirty-third season of Survivor. At the final tribal council, Adam talked about how he felt he played a game that balanced both “Gen X” and “Millennial” qualities, knowing when to stay loyal and when to flip. Even though Hannah claimed she made more decisions, Adam referred to them as blunders. Adam also talked about how while Survivor is his dream, he’s also been living with the nightmare that his mother back home has stage-four lung cancer.
Adam won in a unanimous vote, receiving all ten votes from the jury. Hannah Shapiro, the 24-year-old barista from Los Angeles, CA finished as joint runner-up alongside Ken McNickle, the 33-year-old model from Denver, CO.
During the reunion show, Adam revealed that his mother passed away one hour after he returned home from filming but he got to speak to her and tell her he loved her. He also announced that he’ll be donating $100,000 of his winnings to Stand Up 2 Cancer for lung cancer research.
