    Re: Bachelor 12....ready to start?!?!?!

    I have been catching up on some of the posts and it's amazing that all these new people are coming out of the woodwork.
    I'm surprised that Citibank Boss has so much to reveal. How can someone know so much about another person just from an interview and CV?
    If Matt didn't actually get the job as Citibank Boss claims (which I know to be 100% false) then he would have only met Matt at a first and second interview and had a look over his CV, this guy is now an expert on Matt, come on FORT readers how can you believe that one, honestly just think about it.

    The whole 'Actor' thing that is running at the moment..... Matt is not an actor and doesn't have aspirations to become an actor.
    Matt did not study drama at school, college or university.
    Matt was not part of a theatre group, has never been on TV before but did help a friend make a 50 minute amateur film for his friends Uni course. Matt helped out in spare evenings and weekends as he was helping a friend, that is all. The movie has never seen the light of day as it was for a Uni project, not general release.

    Matt is a genuine likeable guy and I'm sure that most of you will see that as you get to know him over the coming months.
    From what I have seen of him so far is pure Matt, he has not been manipulated to say things that he wouldn't normally say. Watching him on Dance Wars, that is exactly as he would have spoken to us, no different.

    As far as pre judging the type of ladies that Matt would be interested in, if they are beautiful, intelligent and have a sense of humour then they stand a chance. I wouldn't rule anyone out at this stage as he isn't narrow minded and will look at every lady as an individual.

    I do understand the purpose of a forum and that it is a place to air your views and opinions, some will be positive and some will be negative, that is the way of the world but only a select few of us posting here really know Matt well enough to comment on him.
    I don't think that 3 weeks would constitute long enough to know someone well, do you?

    Re: Bachelor 12....ready to start?!?!?!

    Nathmac, I agree with what you have said totally. The citibank person, my gosh, wonder if they will have their job for long. And the idea of being attracted to a certain type of physical trait doesn't set well with me either. I think that when some one decides to be serious for a commitment, that the internal is more important. He has stated the internal characteristics he likes, and that is probably what he'll look at in the end.

    But, I do think 3 weeks qualifies to say you like some one, would be interested to pursue a relationship.

    I think Citiboss said that he did hire him but that he was only there for a short time before he left to do the bachelor and that Matt actually never finished all the paperwork necessary to stay in the job - to me that sounds like he was in a probation period but then left to do the bachelor before he completely finished everything...

    I have a question - you said that you actually did not keep in contact with Matt after he left where he worked with you? Is this true? And you in fact found out that he was the bachelor from us...so you haven't talked to him in several months? So while you might have worked with him and gotten to know him there - you weren't actually close enough with him to stay in contact with him once he was no longer a co-worker?

    When you first started posting you thought it highly unlikely that he could be the Bachelor and in fact told us you didn't have much to say about him and that you didn't even know where he went to work...

    The Matt I know was quite a practical joker, so it wouldn't surprise me if you are being joked around with, it just doesn't seem possible that the Matt Grant that I know could be on an American TV show, especially as he was just a regular guy and not some amazing superduper successful business man type of guy.
    I personally haven't heard from him since he left, I think he keeps in touch with some people but I wouldn't have a clue as to his whereabouts or job I'm afraid, sorry.

    I don't have much to tell you really apart from he liked to sing, played great practical jokes in the office and was a really genuinely likeable guy.The office has been a much quieter and less fun place to be since he left.
    I didn't really socialise with him out of work
    So I guess I am a bit confused - do you know him well or just a little bit?

    Aqua, I would think not. Dance Wars is an American production, if it is shown it would be on one of the lesser TV channels such as Channel 5 or BBC 3. Dancing with the Stars is a BBC/ABC production and a UK version of it is shown on British television. There is a link to Matt's reveal on either the ABC website for Dance Wars or the Bachelor (can't remember which right now).

    I was wondering the same things myself. I was reading all of nathmac31's old posts.. and noticed a few inconsistencies. Maybe you can clear up the confusion.. thanks

    Nathmac31 is currently hosting the Dance thing and ad on his You Tube site.

    Citibank boss hired Matt (purportedly) at Citibank, because he was his supervisor previously at Lombard in Cambridge. That's the story anyway.

    Everyone here will be watching the show and will be commenting on Matt. That is a fact.

    We may not have met him in a work environment but that is completely beside the point since he won't be doing any of that "global financier" or "business development manager" stuff (), on the show.

    He is QUITE TALL!! LOL


    Also.. I noticed DeAnna is on her friend list.. I am guessing her agency will be involved in the casting for the Bachelorette
    He looks exactly how old he is, 27. I feel a train wreck of a season coming on.

    Didn't know that about Nathmac31 thanks for clarifying. Can't get youtube at work.

    I remember reading CITIBANK BOSS saying he'd hired Matt based on the fact that he worked for him at Lombard.
