David Wright's real reason for going on Survivor may surprise you.

Though, this anxious television writer has been a longtime fan of the show, the Chicago-bred optimist is pumped for the opportunity to learn an unexpected new skill set—to manage and overcome the anxiety he faces in everyday life.


As a timid introvert raised in a small suburban neighborhood, David admits to shying away from large social gatherings and avoiding outdoor activities, which are both main elements of Survivor. 

So how will this nervous Gen X-er fare in the wilderness when he's surrounded by 19 other strangers?

Find out when the 90-minute season premiere of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X airs on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access.
