Matty Whitmore is a personal trainer.
The 29-year old California resident believes such physical strength will help him conquer all on Survivor: Gabon, though it will also likely make him a prime candidate for elimination.
''I think Matty will be one of the favorites this season, someone people will absolutely love," host Jeff Probst said. "I find him to be one of the most endearing guys we've ever had on the show to the point where it could work against him because he can't hide anything. If he's confused, he says, 'I'm confused.' If he's happy, he's smiling. If he's sad, he's crying.''
