Matt is a 32-year-old construction sales representative from Meriden, CT. Because of all the drama this season, unfortunately Matt's alone time with Rachel has been cut short -- or some might argue it was cut entirely.
Viewers can recall he was the guy who walked out in a penguin suit on Night 1, which Rachel must have liked, but that's about it. Other than showing his skills on the basketball court during an early group date in Los Angeles, The Bachelorette fans haven't seen much of Matt.
Another guy in his shoes is Adam Gottschalk, who has also been missing from most of the action. Since Rachel is already down to six guys, does this mean Matt and Adam don't stand a chance, or will they suddenly be shown winning over Rachel when it matters most?
