"For the most part I can tell you what sort of butterfly that is, but I try not to because it makes you look like a real loser."
Two of Matt's greatest loves have more in common than most people might realise. On the one hand he enjoys the adventure of insect collecting; the other is his appreciation of Pokemon.
And as he reveals, "The Pokemon games were actually based on entomology."
Psychology student Matt began collecting insects as a 12-year-old and now boasts a collection of 300 and a particular love of the Sydney funnel web spider and the blue hornet.
"It's a passion and it relaxes me. If you make the mistake of getting me started I can talk your ear off for hours," he confesses.
When he's not out hunting down the next insect for his collection, Matt is busy reading his psychology textbooks, writing poetry, playing video games or brushing his hair.
"I play a lot of games. I have a PS3, a Wii, my PC and a 3DS so I play a lot of games. I pretty much play every game I can get my hands on."
While he may play games almost every day of the week - sometimes for six hours straight – his studies take precedence as he aims to one day help young kids who are being bullied.
"I want to get a job in the public health care sector so at the end of the day I can just walk out of my work and say, 'I saved a life today.' I've walked these roads, I can help people get through it."
But he knows before he can help others, he needs some help himself with building up his confidence with women.
"I've spent a lot of my life being rejected. My first experience of talking to a girl was, 'Would you like to' and 'No I wouldn't' before I'd even got the chance to finish. I don't have much confidence around girls. I tend to go very quiet and not talk much at all. My words just fly out the window which sucks."
What he might have in common with the Beauties though is his incredible hair care routine.
"I can't live without my hair brush. I'm quite fond of my hair, I treat it very nicely. I don't colour it, blowdry or straighten it. I try not to tie it up for too long because it's bad for the hair. I put a lot of time into making sure it's ok and healthy."
