S24: Matt Quinlan
« on: January 18, 2012, 09:56:14 AM »

Name (Age): Matt Quinlan (33)
Tribe Designation: Manono
Current Residence: San Francisco, Calif. 
Occupation: Attorney
Personal Claim to Fame: Starting my own law firm; The Law Offices of Matthew J. Quinlan.  I take my career and my commitment to my clients very seriously.  Being able to set up MJQLAW so that I can make a difference in the lives of my clients is probably the thing I am most proud of in my life.
Inspiration in Life: I aim to maximize my potential in everything I do.  It is what keeps me pushing every day.  Of course, “potential” is an elusive thing, but I look forward to chasing it for the rest of my life.
Hobbies: Golf, fitness and all things sports.
Pet Peeves: Complaining, pessimism and over-the-top subjectivity.
3 Words to Describe You: Ambitious, optimistic and dependable.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I have seen a lot of Survivor and can’t recall a past contestant that reminds me of myself, so I have to answer this question with “nobody.”  I don’t plan on playing this game like any past Survivor. In fact, if someone’s plan is to play like a past contestant they are probably both in-over-their-heads and in-real-trouble. If I have it my way, I will be playing a bold, evolved and innovative game that I hope takes Survivor game play to its inevitable next level.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Who wouldn’t want to be on Survivor?!?!  I feel extremely fortunate to be given an opportunity that millions of people would give anything for and won’t take it for granted for even a minute.  America will see me give everything I have to the game!  I owe that to myself and all the Survivor fans out there.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I’ll die out there before I quit.  The only way I am leaving that island is with a tag on my toe or with a snuffed torch.   
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I think I have a lot of attributes that will help me succeed in the game: athleticism, charisma, smarts, etc.  That said, these things are also going to make me a target in the game of Survivor, so figuring out how to use these traits in a non-intimidating way will be the key to my success.

Initial reaction: Notice he says he'll only leave the island with a tag on his toe or with a snuffed torch? Way to aim high there buddy. That means he doesn't hope to make the finals. It's only death or being voted out for him :tup:   Good luck. Fortunately I don't think he's going to die, but he will get to leave with his torch snuffed, probably pre-merge. 

Edited after watching video & press interview:  He seems a little arrogant. That's high aspirations that he's going to change the way Survivor is played. What could he possibly do? I predict a blindside just before the merge.

1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

So now we know why Sandy wanted a divorce.. and glee she must be at least she "beat" Matt in their respective show. Getting second is so much better than saying "Oh i'm the first one voted off my tribe!" :lol:

That was in 2007...
