You may be wondering if Chad made the deal before things with Sophie got serious, but Mat explains the pact was forged well into the game – and VERY sneakily.
“That was when Casey went home, there was still seven people to go.
"He [Chad] took us out to the backyard and we went for a swim and we took our microphones off. He tried to sneak it past, Big Brother heard it and told us to put our mics back on.”
Aside from sneaky side deals being made in the pool, Mat says he’s surprised at how he and Dan have been edited together.
“I’m just a bit shocked they haven’t shown mine and Dan's lighter side. I think if you ask everyone in that house, we made everyone laugh, every day.”
The down to earth mining electrician says his and Dan’s portrayal has led to a barrage of nasty comments online.
“We've been getting abused for the way we play the game, but it just seemed that it was okay for everyone else to play it and not us.
"Social media has not been good for me. But amongst all the hate there’s been a lot of support so I’m thankful to those people.”
