Big Brother 12 Star

Chicago, IL




No new updates for a while.  Typical.  I don’t really do anything that is entertaining enough to promote anymore.  Ahhh, the tragic rise and fall of the reality television icon.

Nevertheless…on to new endeavors!  If the “Creative” section of this site appealed to you, please follow those pursuits at Although I will rarely (if ever) update this site anymore, The Gremlin Cave will remain online as a time capsule of a few mad years of my life.  Thanks to all who both supported and hated.


So, it turns out that I never update this site. But I just did. Mostly in the section of the site dedicated to my creative playtime activities…but some other random updates strewn around as well. Okay, I guess I’ll talk to you guys next year. It’s been a blast catching up!


The premiere of Reality Gamemasters is here, where you can see how well I fare amongst reality television’s most strategic masterminds at an intense game of Risk!

I have been writing, recording, and playing music for half of my life. The vast majority of my musical career was with the band Shooting Blanks. You can buy our old CDs at, and you can also follow us on Facebook.

Here are some free downloads of solo material I have done. These are just demos that I recorded at my home. These also sound nothing like Shooting Blanks, so if you think that band is horrible, give this a shot.


You can see a number of our music videos here. More can be found on the Shooting Blanks website.

Matt Hoffman was a contestant on the 12th season of CBS's reality competition television show, Big Brother. He became a notorious villain that viewers of the program either loved to hate or hated to love. Now Matt is fighting off paparazzi and living out his Z-List life with his wife Stacy in the suburbs of Chicago.

This site will most certainly be a haven for any Matt stalkers, as it is your one-stop resource for all press clippings, interviews, videos, and new projects that he will be working on.

Soak it all in, Matt superfans!...This site's for you!!!
