Gavin Whitson returns to Tri-Cities after competing on CBS’s ‘Survivor’


Erwin’s own survivor is now back in the Tri-Cities.  

Gavin Whitson returned to the Tri-Cities over the weekend after competing in this year’s season of ‘Survivor’ on CBS.  

“Even though Fuji was a beautiful location, I couldn’t be happier to be back in the Tri-Cities,” Whitson said. “Being around my family, friends and this community, they’ve been so great in welcoming me back home. I couldn’t for a better experience and now I couldn’t ask to live in a better place.”
