Who Is Matt Klotz on Big Brother?

Since Matt is a Deaflympian, he is aware of what it takes to succeed. The 27-year-old was born and raised in Cameron Park, California, and now resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In an interview with DeafPeople.com, Matt disclosed that he is “not from a deaf family.” “This is exactly how I was born. My parents did not become aware of my deafness until I was two years old because infants were not yet routinely screened for hearing. He said that although he could “read lips early on,” he hadn’t heard his parents’ speech until he got hearing aids.

I’m not going to reveal to anyone my little lip-reading trick, I promise. As seen in The Exclusive with Sharon Tharp’s “First Impressions of the New Cast” video, Matt claimed in the Diary Room, “I can read anyone’s lips from far away or up close, and I’m not going to let them know that because that’s going to be a great advantage for me. After watching a few seasons of Big Brother, Matt declared himself to be a “decent fan.” In the Big Brother house, he admitted that his “main focus” will be to “try to win the first HOH so that people come to me to make the alliances so I don’t have to worry about that.”

However, he won’t be pushing himself “all the way” in some of the challenges since he doesn’t want to “burn too many bridges right away.” The 25th season of Big Brother features a strong cast. Matt is the first hard-of-hearing contestant in Big Brother history, which spans 23 years and 25 seasons of the popular CBS series. In season 25, he will join Jag Bains in creating Big Brother history. Jag is the first contender from the Sikh community. At the 2013 Summer Deaflympics, Matt won two gold medals in the 100-meter backstroke event. He also took part in the 2017 Summer Deaflympics, competing in the 50-, 100-, and 200-meter backstroke events, where he won three gold medals. The Deaflympics are held every four years, just like the Olympics.
