Matt Quinlan - Bio
Survivor: One World

From's pre-game interview with Jeff Probst:


"Matt says: I'm here to win, and I have to use all my resources. I'm smart, competitive and handsome. I want to control the game. They need the athletic guy to beat the other tribe because nobody wants to go home.

Jeff says: Matt is another villain on the men's tribe. He's very good looking and very charismatic. If anyone sees Matt's true colors, that he could be a little condescending, maybe a little misogynistic. Then that could bite him in the ass."


From his official CBS bio page (1/19/12):


"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."
