Matt Bischoff - Bio
Survivor: Caramoan

From his official CBS Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites bio page (1/11/13):


"Current Residence: Cincinnati, Ohio
Occupation: BMX Bike Sales
Personal Claim to Fame: I am most proud of being a daddy to my two boys. I do a lot of cool things and have personally achieved a lot, but being a dad is the best by far!
Inspiration in Life: Hans Langseth – he grew the longest beard ever at 17.5 feet long. He pretty much rules my life. All hail long beards!
Hobbies: Beards, singing in a band and BMX.
Pet Peeves: Uptight people with no sense of humor, people at gas stations that hold up the line to buy lotto tickets and cigarettes and bad tippers.
3 Words to Describe You: Funny, over the top and caring.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
1)    My ipod – I constantly listen to music. It is a huge part of my life. I also would want to view photos of my wife and kids. 2)    A pen and notebook - to work on song lyrics and keep a daily diary. 3)    A video camera - to film myself doing wild stuff!
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Rupert – he has a big heart and loved to play the game. His teddy bear personality and tough looks remind me of myself. Also, Lex - he was a cool guy, a smart, down to earth dude with a band and lots of tattoos. 
Reason for Being on SurvivorI want to win. I also want to open up people’s minds and show them not to judge a book by its cover. A person’s true character lies within.
Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: I’ll be able to keep people’s spirits up by making them laugh. I’m a hard worker. I’m highly positive and motivating. I will play a great social game. Plus, I feel like I will do well in challenges. I’m a team player. Anyone in my alliance will make it to the end.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I will play a great social game and people will want to keep me around. I’m confident that people will trust me."
