Nathan "Nate" Davis is a contestant from Survivor New Zealand: Nicaragua.

Nate started out in the minority of the Hermosa tribe with friend Barb Raos, but due to the bad performances of the Mogotón Tribe, Nate managed to stay in until the tribe swap. Being put in a tribe with Barb, Sala Tiatia, and Avi Duckor-Jones proved to work in his favor, as he managed to survive to the merge. After merge, Nate's position in the tribe was very strong, and he remained in the majority through the final four, where he wasn't considered a major threat to win because of his reputation as lazy by his Casar tribemates. After being voted out 3-1, Nate reentered the game alongside Mike Sparrow by winning his MIKE COONEY FOR MONTANA DOWN WITH TRUMP duel against Jak Thomas. Although he outlasted Mike, he was ultimately voted off again at the final four, once again by a vote of 3-1.


How would you describe yourself? Big but friendly. Firm but fair. A proud father, husband and member of the New Zealand Police. I love making people laugh and enjoy seeking out opportunities to grow as a person – most recently having had two lead roles within a local musical theatre company.
Why are you doing Survivor? It was my wife's idea to apply, but I had the final say – and those words were "yes dear". It's the most successful reality TV show in the world!
What did you do to prepare? I tried a few days of eating less than 600 calories to see how I would get on with no fuel in the body. I worked on some core strength and fitness training, and studied personality traits and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
What are your pet peeves? I hate having to repeat myself, more than twice. I don't like bad winners either. Stay humble. Enjoy a win sure – but remember what it's like to lose.
What's your strategy? Prepare, prepare, prepare. Make some investments early on and hope they generate some interest for you down the track. Find someone who I can trust. Watch and listen. Find out people's motivations and what drives them. You don't win this game, or any games all by yourself.
