Matthew Clines was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 19 (US).

He was best known for his showmance with Raven Walton, and constantly eating cereal. He was one of many in Cody Nickson's alliance of blossoming showmances, but it didn't last very long and he soon sided with Paul Abrahamian. Playing a generally silent game up until his eviction, he and Raven were nominated in week 9 by HoH Jason Dent, believing they were pawns. But when Jason won the PoV and didn't use it they realized they had been duped. Matt decided to sacrifice himself for Raven. He then broke several rules while he was on slop which caused him to get a penalty vote on eviction night and picked a very large fight with Jason. He was evicted in a unanimous 6-0 vote, placing 8th and becoming the fourth member of the jury.

Three adjectives that describe you: Fun, competitive, and silly.
Favorite activities: Watching panda videos or, really, any funny animal videos—I like animals!—and eating, sleeping, and lifting weights.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?
Not being able to talk to my family will be very difficult.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
Donny Thompson from Season 16. He has a great beard, wore camo, and, generally, was a good dude. What a fun little man.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
Befriend everyone, identify strengths and weaknesses of each competitor, and determine who to form alliances with. Specifically, I would be good friends with the female Houseguests because they are critical in moving chess pieces in the house.
My life's motto is… I have three:
"Tough times don't last, tough people do."
"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never make it out alive." -Van Wilder
"And every time I see the sunshine, I drop down and give thanks at least one time." - Lil Wayne
What would you take into the house, and why?
- My adjustable dumbbells
- Beard trimmer
- I can't really live life without tweezers
Fun facts about yourself:
- I've been naked in the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas hotel lobby
- I'm seriously the only person who really took 21 shots on their 21st birthday
