Tevin Davis is going to be a name to remember on Survivor 46. The 24-year-old is competing against 17 other contestants for the $1 million grand prize on the new season of the hit reality series, which premieres February 28. Tevin has a big personality that will come out on the beaches of Fiji. But the test for Tevin will be if he can outwit, outplay, and outlast everyone else to be crowned the new winner of Survivor.

Here is everything you need to know about Tevin.

Tevin is from Virginia.

Tevin is from Goochland, Virginia, but he now lives in Richmond, Virginia, according to his CBS bio. Tevin is the only Virginia resident on the season 46 cast.

He’s an actor.

Tevin revealed in his interview with Parade that he fell in love with acting because of Whitney Houston. After the music icon died in 2012, Tevin, who was in eighth grade at the time, sang “The Greatest Love of All” at his school’s Black History Month assembly. That landed him a role in the Beauty in the Beast play at school, which sent him on his path towards his acting career. He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in theatre performance.

He also sings.

Tevin can act and sing! He describes himself as a singer, a musician, and a music director in his Instagram bio. Tevin has clips of his music performances on his website.

His dad died.

Tevin’s dad passed away on July 5, 2022. He opened up about the “very difficult” tragedy in his Parade interview. “Until you lose a parent, there is nothing that can be said or done on your part to prepare you for it,” Tevin said. “It is a devastating blow.” Tevin also compared how Whitney Houston dying led to the start of his acting career to his father dying shortly before he was cast on Survivor. “He was like, ‘You’re okay, here’s something else. There’s more for you to do. So go do it.’ ”

He never left the country before Survivor.

The first time Tevin ever left the U.S. was when he traveled to Fiji to film Survivor 46 in the summer of 2023.

“I don’t like flying. I’m a tourist. I like to be on the ground. I like to be on the Earth,” he told Parade. “And I had also never really left the East Coast. The furthest I had been was L.A., and that was for this. And then I’m over here, way across the seas. I had never left the country before I got my passport for this. And so I have flown all this distance, which was a little scary for me, but I did it.”
