‘The Traitors’: Real Estate Agent Matt Is One of the Good Guys (He Swears!)

the traitors 2022 matt

2022 is the year of Network Ten premiering new shows and new formats, and so far, we’re loving it. We’ve roamed the streets of Victoria with Hunted Australia, cruised along the Mediterranean with The Real Love Boat, and now, we’re ready to play detective with The Traitors.

Hosted by Rodger CorserThe Traitors is a new competition reality series that takes place in an old hotel, where our Faithful contestants will compete in challenges to win bars of silver.

The twist, because there’s always a twist, is that there are Traitors masquerading as Faithfuls amongst them, trying to pick them off, one by one. If a Traitor makes it to the end, they’ll win the entire prize pool of silver — worth up to $250,000 — for themselves. If a Faithful makes it to the end, they’ll be presented with a choice: either split the prize with their other Faithful, or keep it all for themselves.

One of the Faithfuls hoping to take out the Traitors this season is Matt, a 32-year-old real estate agent from Queensland’s Gold Coast.

In a press statement, Matt said that aside from winning The Traitors, he also wants to show people that not all real estate agents are menaces to society.

“I do think real estate agents get a bad rap but unfortunately a lot of agents don’t have their clients’ best interests at heart,” he explained. “One of my favourite sayings in life is there are estate agents and there are real estate agents.”

Matt wants the viewers to know that some real estate agents, like himself, have a heart of gold.

“Loyalty means everything to me coming from an Italian family,” he said. “We’re very big on ethics, doing the right thing, loyalty and family is everything.”

Of course, this is The Traitors, not the real world, and Matt did admit that the prospect of playing a little dirty was enticing.

“I think I’d make a great Traitor because I’m very creative, I think on the spot,” he mused. “But I am very in tune with sniffing out liars and developing an understanding on how to make the right decisions so being a Faithful might be right for me as well.”

For Matt, winning isn’t about taking home the prize pool of silver. Rather, he just wants to outsmart his fellow competitors and take out the win for the bragging rights.

Will he achieve his goals? Or will the prime real estate of the top spot be snatched up by a Traitor? Only time will tell. Until then…
