Survivor: Switzerland

Matt began the game on the Lucerne tribe. He quickly allied with everyone on the tribe sans Cal whom he did not trust. At the same time, Matt also became a member of Ian's cross-team "Bromosexual Alliance". However, following Ian's quit, Matt left this alliance. Lucerne did not face Tribal Council for the first ten days, and at the tribe switch, Matt was moved to Ticino along with his closest ally and friend Jino.

While on Ticino, Matt and Jino allied with Ken and Max, as well as formed a partnership with Skandi from Glarus. Ticino would go on to win all the remaining pre-merge Immunity Challenges, and at their only Tribal Council, Matt voted out Maxwell with the rest of the tribe.

On Day 22, Matt became apart of the merged Glavacerno tribe. He and Jino reunited with their original Lucerne tribemates Wojtek and Cal, who had also allied with their partner Skandi. Matt then helped in voting out his former allies Max and Ken. However, Skandi recruited Lucy and the two other original Ticino members to blindside Wojtek at the Day 30 Tribal Council.

At this point in time, both Matt and Jino were both angered and fed up with Skandi and his control of the game. Neither wanted to please Skandi and give him credit for dismantling the Lucerne Four, so both devised a plan where if Skandi was not voted out at the next Tribal Council, they would both quit the game. Sure enough, the votes tied 3-3-2, with Matt and Jino voting for Skandi. Before a revote could take place, Matt announced that he quit the game, with Jino quickly following behind him. This caused a large upset from competitors and fans alike, but both still left anyway. Matt ultimately got 8th place.
