Survivor Redemption Island Contestant: Grant Mattos
Grant Mattos is a former NFL player, and by NFL player I mean he played in 6 games for the Titans in 2003, but it’s still quite an accomplishment to make an NFL team, and he looks like a bad-ass who may possible take some heat off of Russell or Rob and be an early target because of that. Ripped guys like Grant tend to stick around for awhile because they can sometimes carry teams in challenges, but every tribal council there is always a ticking clock when to vote them out. People start to panic about taking beefy guys to the final 6 or so, but as we’ve seen in many seasons now, challenges tend to be more physical early, and more endurance later. That’s why players like Jane can stick around for so long because she had tons of endurance and determination.
Will Grant follow the same path as the other beefy guys on the show? Will Russell feel instantly insecure about him and make a push right away to get him out? There is going to be no questioning this guys strength and determination, but how will he able to convince his peers he’s somehow not a threat later in the game, should he make it that far?
Survivor Redemption Island begins on Feb 16th!
And for the ladies, here are a few more pictures of him…
