Matt Hoffman

Matt Hoffman is a contestant on Big Brother 12 and frequent RHAP guest. He also competed on "Reality Game Masters".


Hoffman is a web designer from Elgin, Illinois. He describes himself as “intelligent, creative and sweet-talker”. His favorite activities include “playing music, writing music, watching TV,” hockey, drinking and “annoying people for my own amusement.” The hardest part of living in the Big Brother house for Matt was “the frustration of not knowing all the major world and pop culture news that’s happening all around you. It is kind of like being in a bizarre time machine that way when you’re on BB."
