Not a good sign that he identifies himself as "over-the-top." He could end up being one of the "characters" of this season.

Lex was a decent player his first go-round, but made the mistake of trusting his out-of-game relationships too much in All Stars. Rupert was definitely a favorite character for a large part of the audience. If Matt is going for the hearts of the majority of Survivor fans, Rupert is not a bad character to pick. After all, he was the unquestioned star of Pearl Islands in most eyes, and he won fan favorite in All Stars. Doesn't sound like a guy that's a bad pick if you're going for being a character who appeals to a wide variety of the fans. If you're wanting to win, that's another thing. I'm just not sure about the over-the-top characterization Matt makes of himself. Could be exhausting.
Yeah, Rupert and Lex do not good Survivor players OR characters make

Oh well, what do you expect from a guy who's only... wait, Matt's 38 years old?

One can argue he made the following mistakes
Darn. My favorite player of the season. He really didn't make any mistakes in the game as it turns out he did make an alliance with Michael, and he was consistently nice to everyone, hardworking and good in challenges. It's a shame to go out over a random tribe shuffle.
1. Matt and Michael were too obvious about how tight they were. The "Cool Kids" did the same thing and were criticized for it, so why not Matt
2. He told the truth about not having an idol
3. Voting out an ally at oldGota's last time at tribal rather than Eddie or Reynold. Perhaps nuBikal might have a fighting chance at challenges if nuGota didn't have both Eddie & Reynold.
That being said, Matt's boot does seem to have a large bit of randomness about it given the tribal imblance, the swap so close to the merge (if the merge is at 12), and Corrine's "gaydar".

So yeah, Matt is the only male who's been voted out in a normal tribal council situation. Mindboggling. I just have to assume this has something to do with Probst's love for the season.

In honour of the [not respected this time] tradition of talking about everyone after they speak at reunion, I'd say if they can bring Francesca back, they should bring this guy back if they really want to do repeats. I found his game play and positioning very interesting, until he was voted off, that is. Which may be why he was voted off but still, just wanted to post that I would have liked to see more of his strategy/game going forward, could have been interesting.
