Cosmopolitan once named Matt one of America's “50 Hottest Bachelors.” From Madison, Wisconsin, he describes himself as a sweet hopeless romantic, a kid who is trapped in a grown-up's body. Matt also became known as one of the 15 straight guys who vied for the love of entertainer, model and MySpace personality Tila Tequila in the MTV reality show A Shot at Love 2 with Tila Tequila. The controversial Bachelor-style reality dating show pitted 15 straight guys with 15 sexy lesbians for a shot at Tila's love while they live inside her house. He was deemed sweet by Tila, but the two didn’t make enough of a connection for him to stick around. He was eliminated on the first episode.
