Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X

Player of the Season

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X came to an end this past Wednesday night when Adam Klein, the 25-year-old homeless shelter manager from San Francisco, CA, was crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million prize. Throughout the season we have been running a Player of the Week poll after each episode (you can see the weekly results below). However, now it is time to vote for your Player of the Season. Who impressed you the most with their strategic gameplay, social skills, and overall performance during the season?

The results below reflect a season that has been very fluid, with back-and-forth gameplay week after week. Not until Week 11 did we have a repeat winner (the person who went on to win the show!), which speaks to the performance of this cast as a whole. Last week, readers voted Adam Klein the Player of the Week with 420 votes (37.40%), making him the only person to win multiple weeks.


Week 1: Jessica Lewis
Week 2: Michelle Schubert
Week 3: Ken McNickle
Week 4: David Wright
Week 5: Michaela Bradshaw
Week 6: Adam Klein
Week 7: Jay Starrett
Week 8: Zeke Smith
Week 9: Sunday Burquest
Week 10: Hannah Shapiro
Week 11: Adam Klein
Week 12: Adam Klein

Who is your Player of the Season?

Thanks for taking part in the poll each week. Stay tuned to Inside Survivor during the off-season for all the latest Survivor news and features.

  1. Shouldn’t we have a separate Player of the Week poll for the Final episode at least? I think it’s only fair to have one poll for the Best Player of the 2-hour Finale episode and one separate poll for the Best Overall Player of the Season.

  2. David had an overall best strategic game, and a great personal growth story. He is my player of the season, hope to see him and jay (great personality and player) back for another time.
