Meet Matt Wilson- Carpenter, AussieBum model, Australia's Hottest Tradie 2010 and now, contestant in Cleo's Bachelor competition. Luckily for readers of the Modern Fabulous, he took some time out from his busy schedule to answer some quick questions. Ladies- get in line.
What’s something that most people don’t know about you?
Only family and close friends know that I was in The Wiggles Movie when I was not even 8 years old. I’m pretty sure I’ve been keeping it a secret growing up thinking that I would cop a lot of ribbing from workmates if they knew it. But now getting older it’s only getting funnier and funnier!
What is your favourite style/outfit on a girl?
I can’t go past a maxi-dress. It’s actually one of my biggest attention grabbers. Don’t ask me how or why but I think every girl looks a million dollars in one!
Other than that any girl who looks effortlessly gorgeous is a standout for me. Hair out, minimal makeup and comfortable flats creates this vibe. Well that’s coming from a tradie with not much sense in style anyhow!
How would you describe your own style?
I’m like a bit of a cartoon character, I can be seen wearing the same looking outfits far too often! I have a little rule for myself , shorts with a shirt, Pants/jeans with a T-shirt or singlet. And now that winters coming on… I’m out of ideas!!
Finish this- tights as pants...
Tights as pants are like a liquid moulded outfit. Risky stuff!
What was your funniest/most memorable date?
Unfortunately the most memorable date for me was my worst date. I will never forget it.
When I was 17 I had a crush on this girl and thought the feeling was mutual. We had an awesome evening planned with the movies, dinner and a party on the agenda. I remember waiting at the movies for 2 hours for her to come. She never did, and the worst part was that every 30min she would send a text saying she would be there in 10min. It was a total lie.
What has been your most embarrassing moment?
I was doing an undie parade for aussieBum on the Kerri-anne show about 2 months ago. I had to strip down to reveal a new pair of swimmers when I pulled down too much and showed a little more than necessary….my face went red quicker than a crab in a pot.
Something that makes you laugh?
Dad jokes get me all the time. Scary to think that I’m loving them now….wait til I am a Dad!
Describe your perfect day.
Taking my dog for a run first thing in the morning before heading to work and getting a bit of building work done (to convince myself I’ve done something constructive for the day) then heading down to the river with friends on a hot day to go wakeboarding! Finishing it off with a few drinks around a fire by the water.
Why should people vote for you as Cleo’s Most Eligible Bachelor for 2011?
Apart from backing the underdog, this years criteria is about the everyday guy who is laidback, and nice to a girls mum. I reckon I fill that role just right!
Finally, what is a song that you’re loving at the moment?
Lady Gaga – Born This Way
