‘Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X’ Episode 8 Results: The Merge Is Here!

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X has finally arrived at the merge with tonight’s episode! Naturally, this meant some surprising moves as the competition enters the race towards Final Tribal Council.

The episode centers mostly on Adam, who seems to be playing all sides, first trying to get Taylor on his side by revealing a new advantage he discovered at treemail: the ability to steal a reward! He then tries to ally with Ken, David, Jessica, Zeke in order to blindside Will. However, when Will wins immunity, Adam is left scrambling. Suddenly, his desperation begins to wear on his allies to where Adam is suddenly the big target for elimination. Of course, Adam has a hidden immunity idol, so the big question centered on whether or not he’d recognize the turning tide of opinion against him and play it. Another big question was whether Taylor or Michelle would be the Adam alternative as a possible elimination. It was an absolutely fascinating episode, and I think it tells us a lot about where this game is going.

But who ended up being voted out? Get the results below:

MICHELLE is voted out of SURVIVOR: MILLENNIALS VS. GEN X!

In her exit interview, Michelle admits that she thought her alliance had the numbers. But she states that maybe the amount of trust she had in the numbers caused her to become complacement, which led to her downfall. I don’t think this downfall is necessarily Michelle’s fault, in that I don’t think it was anything she particularly did. But it’s just that hers was the name that was chosen to remove a number from the millennials. That’s all.

This wasn’t necessarily a bad call, although I think Adam is more dangerous if left in the game for too long. My issue here is the same one I had with David earlier in the game, in that Adam is playing way too hard, which makes him difficult for some of his allies to trust. While David has mellowed out considerably, Adam has only ratcheted up the tension. I don’t know that this style of gameplay is sustainable if your name isn’t Tony Vlachos, but then, Todd Herzog played a similarly insistent game and managed to win Survivor: China. So time will tell with Adam.
