TV Watch Survivor
Mari Takahashi has summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro, but nothing prepared her for being blindsided on Wednesday's episode of Survivor.
"I feel like I've been in limbo since I was voted out but seeing it on TV makes it all very real now," Takahashi, 31, says of being the first millennial to be voted out on Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
Every season of Survivor, someone has to be first to go, and Millennials vs. Gen X was no exception.
On Wednesday's season 33 premiere, which pitted two generations of tribes against each other, those born before 1983 were felled by a strategic blunder in a puzzle-based immunity challenge, leaving one tribe member wishing she'd been more of a goat so she hadn't ended up being the season's first scapegoat.
PEOPLE spoke with 37-year-old Gen-Xer Rachel Ako about the brand-new twist, the history-making evacuation due to a cyclone and how she felt about finding her flame snuffed first at tribal council.
They're young. They're energetic. And they have all the answers.
Ten Millennials have been selected to compete on Survivor, and they'll be competing against 10 contestants from Generation X.
As he splits up the tribes, host Jeff Probst Jeff Probst defines Millennials as being born between 1984 and 1997. The Generation X contestants are born between 1963 and 1982. (Apparently, if you're born in 1983, you're out of luck.)
PEOPLE spoke with all 20 contestants before they competed on the show. The 10 millennials were enthusiastic, confident and ready to play the game.
He's the most recent heartthrob of Survivor. She was a finalist during the show's iconic first season, when 51 million people watched the final episode.

The full cast for season 33 – not a typo – of Survivor can now be officially revealed, along with some fresh intel on twists and what to expect when CBS' Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X premieres with a special 90-minute edition on Sept. 21.
One of Survivor's all-time fan favorites is gearing up for a comeback – but this time, he left the island on his own terms.
Joe Anglim, who competed on Worlds Apart and Second Chance – he was voted off both times after being perceived as a physical threat – just returned from two months shooting a new reality series in Maui alongside fellow competitor Kelly Wiglesworth.
"We've been adventuring," Anglim, 27, said at Thursday's PEOPLE VIP reception for the Hearts of Reality event in Orlando benefiting Give Kids the World. "We want to inspire people, we want to help people. It's a new type of TV. It's from the heart. Survivor has given us a lot, and now we want to give back."
