Backyard Interview with Matt

This is an interview conducted in the backyard of the BB house by Missy for  After Britney departs, Missy looks like she needs a cigarette, but she soldiers on, getting the cameras to pan over to Rachel's backside.
Missy gets back on her mark and even says that after she is finished she wants to go sit on the backyard couches, where the houseguests sit and drink and smoke.  Ha ha.  Go for it.  You get yours, Missy.
Missy hasn't seen Lane or Hayden in the backyard yet, but seems to be waiting for Matt.  She sees Allison Grodner, Executive Producer of BB next door, and knows she is coming over.  Missy doesn't have anything prepared for Allison, but wants to talk to her anyway.
But lo and behold, the handler drags Matt over to Missy and here he is, doing what he is told!

M:  And here he is, the diabolical genius himself!

Matt:  Or not, as I sit here....

Matt has some trouble seeing and getting on his mark but is pleased to hear that Missy is from the Superpass live feeds.  Matt's a fellow feed watcher, too, and gives us a wave once Missy points out where the cameras are.  (And yes, you can STILL hear Rachel laughing in the background.)

M:  I'm sure you're taking a beating tonight with the lie question.

Matt:  What lie?  Ha ha ha.  This is Big Brother!

M:  Did you know you were going to lie before BB started?  Or did you make it up when you walked in the house.

Matt said that he and Stacy talked  about what he would do to win beforehand and drew the line at infidelity, but that's as far as it went.  Then when Matt met Britney and she talked about her fiance, Matt said what he said about Stacy and it was on from there...he couldn't turn back.

M:  I know that Julie asked you about this, but I want to go deeper.  Do you regret the lie based on everyone's reaction to it?

(Really, who gives a shit about the lie at this point?  Why waste MORE time on that stale topic?)

Matt:  No, I didn't need to use it, but it was an ace up my sleeve that I had.  I feel badly that I hurt people, but I didn't know them when I made it up and would never want to hurt them now.
Missy keeps on and on with the questions about the lie and who all has been offended by it, and it is obvious that Matt is so tired of talking about it.  Maybe that is his regret...having to defend himself to people that have never played the game themselves.  (Chelsia wasn't bothered by it, because she's actually played the game before.)

Matt is sighing loudly and wonders if the haters have ever seen BB before.

Matt:  I wasn't injecting anyone with the virus, I wasn't a witch doctor putting spells on people, no one is going to get the disease just because I lied about it.  The people who aren't offended, those people are game players and they should apply next season!

M:  We're off the lie now.

Matt:  All right.

M:  Have Kathy and Ragan forgiven you?  (Is that really "off the lie" Missy?)

Matt:  I don't think Kathy ever will---she's not a big Matt fan.  But Ragan has forgiven and over time everything will be cool.  We'll be cuddling tonight.
M:  After you left, Ragan said that he thought you were his brother..did you know that?

Matt:  That's really nice.  I never thought going into this that I would bond with people like that but I will probably know him forever.

M:  Who would you have taken to the final two?

Matt:  It would have been two game players....probably Enzo because he was the worst player in the house and I could have beaten him.

M:  I should tell you I am Team Enzo.

Matt:  Are you?  I like Enzo, he's one of my best friends in the house, but he wasn't a good player.

M:  Do you think you should have had to win the Diamond POV instead of just it being handed to you?  Was it fair?

Matt:  I wish I would have had to play for it, because I would have won it!  It was a little bit of a curse and I wish I hadn't had to use it, but I was on the block....

M:  Knowing that Hayden and Enzo were going to evict you, why didn't you use the DPOV to put one of them up on the block instead of Kathy?

Matt:  At the time, I don't know how it was perceived, but from the questions that I am getting, people think that I knew I was the low man on the totem pole and that I was going out first.  I knew they were all closer to each other than me, but I just thought they had to put a Brigade member out, not that I was being targeted.  But if I had known what I know now, yes I would have put one of them out!  I'll admit, I got played....

M:  Knowing what you know now, do you regret throwing Ragan under the bus?

Matt:  I totally regret doing that.  It was a big time skeevy move but it is a hindsight thing.  I hope he forgives me now.

M:  I hope you laugh at this one. ...what is the purpose of you putting your hand down your pants?

Matt:  Oh, this is a live feed, you know I like to chill and be comfortable and that is just the most comfortable place to put it.  I wish they had a pocket in your pants right here and then it would be socially acceptable but it isn't.  I would like to make a line of pants that had that....

M:  Didn't Stacy tell you not to do that?

Matt, laughing:  Oh, she probably did!  I don't know...I do it in bars, at home..I'm not conscious of it!  It's comfortable, you should try it!  I'm not moving it around or anything....

M:  You like that question?  Did anybody else ask you that?

Matt:  No, no one else!  It's a live feed thing!  I don't think they showed that on TV!  Do you watch the live feeds?

M:  I do, I go without sleep!

Matt:  Me and Ragan, we would say that we feel sorry for the live feeders because nothing was going on.

M:  Ragan spent many a night in that hammock talking to us...he really showed you his hand.  I'm surprised at that.  He told you a lot about his game.

M:  Will you be going back to your profession?

Matt:  I want to get back to that as soon as possible!  I want life to be normal, if that is possible.  At home, I'm kind of the weird one, so this place was different..I liked it.

M:  Why didn't you tell your HG that you were on Average Joe?

Matt:  OMG, you know about that?  It was such an insignificant part of my life.  I did tell Ragan and we would laugh about lines from that show.  I don't even have a copy of's lost in the archives.  We both want to see it so maybe we will find a copy of it.  I told Britney too and we laugh about it.

M:  How happy were you that Ragan gave you those two HOH's?

Matt:  Oh, touche!  Giving it to me!  Let's get him over here and see what he says about that! 

Matt mentions the live feeders watching the competitions and says that Stacy doesn't watch the live feeds.

M:  Oh yes she does! 

Matt:  She really does?

M:  She really does.  She calls into our show on Superpass, too.

Matt:  No!  (genuinely shocked)  This is so funny to me, because before she left she told me she is proud of me but she never wants to be on TV or involved with anything about it.
M:  You know Chelsia? Who did you pre-season interview?

Matt:  Yes?

M:  She has a great relationship with Chelsia, and...

Matt:  NO WAY!  Oh my god my wife was playing it so cool..."I don't want to be a part of this!"
M:  I guess Expect the Unexpected with her too!

Matt feels to win you need to be a dirty ruthless player...he likes that Hayden looked him right in the eye and lied to him.  That's why he voted for Hayden--he played dirty!

M:  Get this...I was Team Enzo, and Chelsia was on....ready?.....Team Matt!

Matt:  Really?  Well I'm on Team Chelsia!  We'll have a Superpass Battle!

M:  It was fun with us going back and forth when you were up...

Matt can't believe that Enzo and America think that Enzo was the one who created the Brigade.  This is really killing him.

Matt:  If that is true, why is he the only one without a side alliance?  How could he figure that out?  You tell me...he didn't even understand the Brigade!

M:  He formed a side alliance with Brendon!

Matt:  But that was Week Six!  No good!

Now Matt is saying that he never watched the live feeds and didn't know that he could flash back and watch it.  (Really??? I heard him tell Ragan that he watched every season!)  Matt plans to get Enzo and they will all hash out the Brigade formation issues live in person.

He jokes for Missy to give us all his email address and leaves with a smile on his face.  I think that was a tough interview for him, at least through 2/3 of it.
