Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X has its final six, one of which will become the Sole Survivor and the winner of a million dollars. With a double eviction episode, the field has been narrowed.
There is Adam Klein, the sly homeless shelter manager, who has begun to step up his game and has always been focused on the prize.
There is Bret LaBelle, the police sergeant, who has maneuvered situations to his advantage and even though he is in the minority, has managed to stay alive in the game.
There is Ken McNickle, a model who is now in the thick of things, although his own allies have said they have had to push him to play the game and not just live the experience.
There is Hannah Shapiro, the awkward barista who has matured into a sharp player and strategist.
There is Justin “Jay” Starrett, who despite being stripped of his core alliance has won immunities and worked deals to keep himself safe.
Finally, there is David Wright, who like Hannah fought through his apprehension and low confidence to become a major power player.
Who will outwit, outlast and outplay all the others to be crowned the winner?
Tune in next Wednesday night at 8 et/pt for the two-hour Survivor season finale and reunion special on Global to find out.

Survivor Scoop – Week 12 : Game Fail: Will Wahl and Sunday Burquest
Will and Sunday, there couldn’t be two more diverse Survivor players. While one tried too hard to grab the spotlight for himself and one might have clung to the shadows far too much.
As the youngest player to ever be cast on Survivor and a hardcore fan of the series, Will felt he needed to make those BIG MOVES to get noticed. It is that tactic which made him the next big target.
Sunday, on the other hand, worked her partnerships well and some magic behind the scenes but shied away from the spotlight. It is that tactic which made her the next big target.
Stepping up for the summit was Will’s chance to try to move himself into a position of power. Will had the numbers moving to the new Ikabula Tribe where he and Jay found the Hidden Immunity Idol. They formed an alliance and successfully took out Michaela.
Once the tribes merged, he and Jay went after Adam but their plan was foiled by Zeke. Will later tried to repair his relationship with Zeke by informing him of Jay’s Hidden Immunity Idol. Will’s flip-flopping between David and Zeke’s alliances eventually caught up with him.
Sunday worked with the Gen X women to get rid of Paul and then targeted Jessica for the rest of the game. At the new Ikabu, she was able to survive with Bret. When the tribes merged, she continued to go after Jessica recruiting Jay but her plan eventually went up in smoke.
Will Rating: 3/ 5
Sunday Rating: 2 / 5
Will and Sunday played similar games. Will looked to be everyone’s clever kid brother and Sunday was a faithful ally who never made herself a threat. Both had influence over their alliance members and both did try to take aim at their rivals.
Will Rating: 3.5 / 5
Sunday Rating: 3 / 5
As a wide-eyed millennial and a super fan, Will’s journey was fascinating as you just knew he would eventually make a strong push, whether for good or for bad, no matter what the consequences might have been.
Sunday didn’t really come out of her shell during the series, at least we didn’t see her do so. We never learned a whole lot about her which seemed to be a shame because she did have a lot to offer.
Will Rating: 4 / 5
Sunday Rating: 2 / 5
Will Final Castaway Rating: 10.5 / 15
Sunday Final Castaway Rating: 7 / 15
Survivor Scoop – Week 12: Powell’s Picks
Who played it cool and who proved themselves to be a fool? Every week John Powell makes his picks for the worst and best players of the week.
Bronze Amateur: Hannah Shapiro
She makes too many decisions based on emotion and not logic.
Silver Amateur: Sunday Burquest
She should have played a stronger, more influential game. Her fate always seemed to be in the hands of other people.
Gold Amateur: Will Wahl
His ego ran rampant. He forgot that Survivor is about making the strongest move at the right time.
Bronze MVP: The Immunity Challenges
The balancing and timed portions of the challenges were quite ingenious.
Silver MVP: David Wright
A clear threat, yet, he has managed to move that target onto someone else.
Gold MVP: Adam Klein
He has moved into the forefront when he had to and has a great chance at winning the game.
