Personal trainer Matty Whitmore is one of the contestants of the reality series Survivor: Gabon. Born on December 18, 1978, he works as a personal trainer in Los Angeles, and enjoys teaching health and wellness. After working with clients—vigorous workouts, surf sessions, and perhaps doing yoga—he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend Jaime, and pet dog, Dink.
After getting everything and losing it—he partied a trust fund he inherited from his grandparents away—Matty now believes that Survivor is a chance for him to learn more about himself and know what exactly he is capable of doing. Aside from being physically fit, he brings knowledge of the outdoors and a teeming sense of confidence to the competition. He sees his ability to help people not take themselves too seriously as a way to manipulate his competitors to do his bidding.
