Playing 'Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X' -- New Ideas Challenge Old

Talk about a showdown for the ages! The upcoming 33rd season of Survivor pits Generation Xers against Millennials, and we have a first look at the cast.

"Gen X sits here strong, saying, 'We built this world,' and then the Millennials say, 'Yes, and we're changing it," host Jeff Probst shares in a behind-the-scenes clip.

The 10 members of Gen X range in age from 33 to 52, while the Millennials are between 18 and 31.

The show is taking the competition to Fiji for the second time this season and according to Probst, some of the generational divides came into play just days in.

"Some of the Gen Xers have kids that are Millennials, so there's this parent-child thing that you can't avoid, because they're parents and they're imagining, 'What if this was my kid out here?'" he says. "We've already had some rough weather and I know already in talking to Gen X there was some concern for those kids."

While the location presents unique challenges in weather, it also provides a big opportunity for Probst.

"I'm happy to be back in Fiji to re-write the Survivor history in Fiji," he says. "I've always been honest: Fiji was not one of my favorite seasons. Doesn't mean the people weren't good. Doesn't mean I don't like Earl as a winner. I think he's a great winner. But as a season -- not one I'd put in my top 10. We're determined to make this a top 10 season."
