Survivor 33: The Millennials - Vanua Tribe

 Adam Klein
 Age 25
 Homeless Shelter Manager
 San Francisco. CA

He doesn't believe you have to pay your dues to be successful. Hmm.
He thinks he's most like Spencer Bledsoe, wise beyond his years. We'll see about that.

Jessica "Figgy" Figueroa
Age 23
Nashville, TN

She says, "I will lead my tribe and make it to the end with my lovable personality, my drive, and work ethic."
She sounds like she could be scrappy. That's good. She most admires Stephenie LaGrossa, a good choice.

 Justin "Jay" Starrett
 Age 27
 Real Estate Agent
 Fort Lauderdale, FL

He purchased a house at the age of 25 (from himself?) and his hero is his mother who has had severe health problems, yet shines.
He thinks he'll be most like Russell Hantz.
Oh my.

 Mari Takahashi
 Age 31
 Los Angeles, CA

She has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Impressive.
She says, "One doesn't accrue over 35 million fans across the internet by chance; it's strategic, calculated, technical, smart, and is exactly how I will play and win Survivor." Eep! 

Michaela Bradshaw
Age 25
Vacation Club Sales
Fort Worth, TX

She worked three jobs throughout college and paid off her $31,000 college debt by the age of 23.
"Being a Millennial means I am bold enough to state a want and stubborn enough to work for it, despite obstacles and the opinions of others."   

Michelle Shubert
Age 28
Missionary Recruiter
Yakima, WA

She thinks she's most like Boston Rob. We'll be the judge of that!
She says, "I seek beauty, adventure, and adrenaline. I like nature, exploring, rock climbing, slacklining." She also studies dragons and the stars. Okaaay ...

Taylor Lee Stocker
Age 24
Ski Instructor
Postfalls, ID

He doesn't like selfies. I like that in a man boy.
He says, "I love my generation. We are all-around epic." I don't know about that.
He claims he isn't even thinking of the money -- he just wants to "kick ass" in the game.

Zeke Smith
Age 28
Asset Manager
Brooklyn, NY

His hobbies include writing, improv, cooking and gym. We'll see how those translate in the game.
He says he's most like,"Tony Vlachos (Cagayan). I mean, I'm not personally like a cop from New Jersey and I would never live in New Jersey." Oh, geez. New Jersey jokes are so baby-boomer!

Will Wahl
Age 18
High School Student
Long Valley, NJ

Speaking of New Jersey! He's the youngest castaway ever.
He wants to play his own game and not be like anyone else ever on the show. He's a huge fan, too.
This could be interesting!
Hannah Shapiro
Age 26
West Hollywood, CA

Um. She can hula-hoop and walk at the same time. Well, there's an accomplishment!
It sounds like she's going to play up the weird factor. We all know how rarely that works.
However, she is a big fan and wants to play like Cochran.

I like the Ziggy chick (b/c I loved Stephanie, too!) and the cute Jay kid.
Millenials seem to have no clue, just NO clue.

Interesting group... I like Michelle and Jay in this group... Will might do good but at age 18 he might be more naive and too trusting... He might need to team up with an older Survivor fan once they merge....

Thanks Jackie!
