We’ve covered the Big Brother 19 underdogs, and the stars of the show, but what’s up with those other guys? You know, the ones who seem to be playing the game for Paul or just hanging out at summer camp?
Let’s start with Matthew. Looks like Matthew is wearing an orange or blue shirt today, and he is probably eating some cereal or something else from a bowl. Wait, no, it’s definitely cereal.
A little later he’s probably going to go hang out with Raven and listen to some of her medical stories. He might then do some dishes (while listening to Raven talk about some more of her medical conditions). Hopefully he doesn’t use the same towel he used for … never mind. He’ll then probably go outside and talk about making it to jury so he can vote for Raven or Paul to win the game. Then he’ll go and change into a different blue shirt and eat some more cereal and maybe nap but pretend not to be nap.
After that, Matthew will most likely talk a little about getting Jessica and Cody out of the game before having some more cereal and possibly changing back into his sleeveless orange shirt. Then he’ll annoy Christmas a little bit and go to bed.
All joking aside, that is basically Matthew’s Big Brother 19 life. Right now the silver fox so many girls, and guys, were so excited for has been a bit of a disappointment. When the only thing fans are talking is how many blue T-shirts can one guy have, you know you’re probably not living your best Big Brother life.
At times I’ve wondered if Matthew signed up for some HGTV homebuilding show and wandered onto that CBS lot and just never left. Others on social media joke that he’s a part of production that keeps forgetting to go back behind the scenes. And then there are the references comparing him to the furniture.
What’s interesting about Matthew (besides absolutely nothing) is that he’s not even playing a floater game. Not the true floater game, anyway. He’s just there. He isn’t playing to win and has admitted as much. His goal is jury, even though he has said he will start playing when they reach jury. But even then, it looks like he’s still going to be playing for Paul and Raven.
There are times when Matthew is the voice of reason. Like when the entire house wants to gang up and attack Cody and Jessica. He reminds them that Cody is a man who has killed people in war, and it might not be the best idea to get in his face and provoke him. So he’s not completely worthless in the game.
Matthew seems like a great guy, and maybe he’ll be a dark horse later in the game. Maybe not. The only thing we know for sure is that he’s definitely going to be wearing that sleeveless orange shirt tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that.
Thanks to multiple Twitter users for helping me do the math for the graphic on the breakdown of Matthew’s favorite T-shirts. It’s not precise, and it’s just for fun, but it’s definitely close to reality.
