Tyrone Davis is a contestant from Survivor: Nicaragua.

Despite being a valued member of the original Espada tribe, after the tribe switch, Tyrone failed to endear himself to the former members of the younger La Flor tribe. As a result, despite NaOnka Mixon wanting to quit the game, he was voted out for his bossiness.

Tyrone was put on the Espada tribe, originally consisting of players ages 40 and over. Tyrone seemed to get along with the tribe, in the beginning, especially showing enthusiasm when he got a pep talk from Jimmy Johnson. Tyrone was arguably the strongest member of Espada, being the reason they won immunity on Day 6 and explaining why he didn't receive any votes before the tribe switch. After the switch, Tyrone, along with Dan Lembo, Holly Hoffman, and Yve Rojas, remained on Espada, and despite Tyrone trying to give a warm welcome to the new members of Espada, the younger Espada members, especially NaOnka Mixon, felt that he thought he was all talk. Tyrone was all right with voting off NaOnka in after she had a nervous breakdown, but Benry Henry felt that Tyrone wasn't a team player and was a bit bossy, and despite not helping prepare the chicken for dinner, Tyrone ate the most. At Tribal Council, Tyrone attempted to do damage control to save himself, but it proved ineffective and Tyrone was voted off 6-2.

Tyrone was mentioned a few times after his elimination. Marty Piombo seemed pretty happy that Tyrone was voted off since Tyrone was a powerhouse. Holly Hoffman also mentioned that had Tyrone not won the challenge on Day 6, she would have been voted off, so she was thankful for that. Oddly, Tyrone didn't speak at the Reunion Show.
