Survivor: Adam Klein's Mother Died An Hour After He Got Home

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

Survivor season 33 winner Adam Klein revealed during the finale that his mother died of lung cancer just an hour after he returned home from the game.

“I had absolutely no idea what I was coming home to. And the thing is, she was strong throughout the entire season because they had made the decision to stop treatment,” Adam told EW. “My mom did not want to pull me from the game. That was not an option in her mind. But they made the decision that if I was voted out, even if I were on the jury, that I would come home immediately.”

Adam found out from his brother, during the loved ones’ visit, that his mom stopped responding to treatment.

“I said on the show many times that I wanted to watch the episodes with her. We didn’t get to experience it that way together, the way I anticipated it, but she got to live it in her own way because she knew I was still in the game every step of the way,” Adam said. “Otherwise, I would have been home. So she got stronger and stronger throughout the time I was still in there because she knew that I was getting closer and closer to that final dream. I absolutely believed that she held on and she only really started to decline the night that final Tribal Council happened. And by that point, I was already on my way home. And I believe that she waited for me.”

Adam ended up winning the million-dollar prize in a unanimous vote, and he’s donating $100K of his winnings to Stand Up to Cancer. You can donate here.

'Survivor' Announces 'Game Changers' Season 34 With All-Stars

The next season of Survivor is titled “Game Changers — Mamanuca Islands”!

Host Jeff Probst revealed some of the all-star cast during the season 33 finale, and it includes Tony Vlachos, Tai Trang, Michaela Bradshaw, Caleb Reynolds, Ciera Eastin, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Ozzy Lusth, and Cirie Fields.

There will be a mix of winners and non-winners, but all are boasted to have made big moves in their respective seasons.

In case you didn’t know, Sandra is the only player to have won both times she played!

“When we do a season called Game Changers and invite 20 people to come back and play, we expected everybody to be slugging it out,” Jeff told EW. “What we didn’t anticipate is that, because everybody’s a Game Changer, it neutered everybody initially, and everybody was playing from fear that they were going to be the one taken out, and it really made the game unpredictable in an uneasy way. There is an uneasiness in the beginning of in terms of, who’s going to get it? Who’s going to be the first one to die? And then the game finds a rhythm and becomes really interesting on a whole different level.”

Survivor: Game Changers season 34 will premiere on on Wednesday, March 8 @ 8/7c on CBS.
