SurvivorAge ain't nothing but a number? Not the case in the upcoming 33rd season of "Survivor." Age matters a lot, since the season breaks down the cast members by generation.



CBS announced the 20-person cast of "Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X," and as usual, it's a mixed bag of occupations and backgrounds. But as the season's title indicates, there's a clear generational divide between the two tribes. As the network said in a statement,




Millennials, the largest living generational group and most diverse in U.S. history (source: PewResearch.org and U.S. Census Bureau), grew up in a time of rapid change and are often described as having priorities that are vastly different from previous generations. How will this group fare without technology on the island? Will they opt for shortcuts in challenges or go the distance? Generation X forms the bridge between the Baby Boomers and the Millennials and has been collectively labeled as hard-working and independent people. Will they be able to find some commonalities with the younger castaways or stick to their own group? Will their differences and preconceived beliefs be too much to overcome?
