Adam Klein from "Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen. X" (2016) is one of the contestants in Season 33 of the CBS reality competition series. He starts out on the Vanua (Millenials) tribe. He is a homeless shelter manager from San Francisco, California.

Here is an interview with Adam Klein:

Three words to describe you: Intelligent, confident, and personable.

Hobbies: Board games, poker, browsing the "Survivor" Subreddit, and travel.

Pet peeves: Bullies, long lines, and smokers.

What does it mean to be a Millennial? Millennials believe that, in this moment, anything is possible. If you have dreams, go after them. If you want to change the world, change it. I don't believe you have to "pay your dues" making copies and fetching coffee before you can be successful — or before you can make a difference.

Don't just work harder, work smarter, and make your goals a reality! My dream is to win "Survivor" and I'm going to make it happen!

Personal claim to fame: As a volunteer, I chaired a Relay for Life event that raised over $135,000 for cancer research and grew in size from about ten youth participants to over 500. If any of that money helps save my mom's life, then it is, by far, my most important accomplishment.

Inspiration in life: My mom. She is surviving lung cancer and has survivorship in her blood [because] her mom survived Auschwitz. She is incredibly physically fit and otherwise healthy. She can tear up the dance floor — that's where I get my moves! — and she's my best friend and supporter.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A picture of my family to keep myself grounded and focused, a fake hidden Immunity Idol because the threat can be just as powerful as the real thing, and a razor because I hate mustaches with a fiery passion.

Survivor contestant you're most like: Spencer Bledsoe (Cagayan, Cambodia). We are both wise beyond our years, can easily play up to the egos of older and stronger players, are strategic thinkers, and are widely underestimated in the game. I also relate to the never-say-die nature and social finesse of Hayden Moss (Blood vs. Water).

Reason for being on the show: When I set a goal in life, I achieve it. As an ultimate super-duper fan, winning "Survivor" is an unrealized goal that I simply must accomplish. I have dreamed of winning "Survivor" since I was nine years old, even going so far as to play "Survivor" online when I was in middle school.

The money is secondary, but not unimportant because it would allow me to continue my passion for social justice.

Why do you think you'll "survive"? No one is going to fight as hard as I will for that title. I may be — and look — young, I may be small, but my fellow competitors won't know what kind of power punch I pack until they are already knocked out. I will use my youthful charm and energy, combined with my strategic nature to win. I come from a long line of real-life survivors, and I am next.
