Matt Brody (portrayed by David Charvet) was a lifeguard who came into the show during the third season,he was in rookie school at the same time with Summer. It all began when the two were standing in the line to the headquarters. Summers abusive stepfather,who she and her mother Jackie had tried to escape from when they came to California had followed them and started harassing Summer. Matt rushed to her defense. They both passed rookie school. During their lifeguard years,they became really close friends,although Matt was jealous of Summers surfer boyfriend Jimmy Slade (portrayed by Kelly Slater). When Summer found out that Slade wasnt ready to commit,she left him and started dating Matt. Eventually Summer and Matt broke up when Summer left for college. Matt later started dating a fellow lifeguard C.J Parker (portrayed by Pamela Anderson). Matt has a great sense of humor but he has not had an easy life. His parents always cared more about money than their child. They eventually move to France. His father says that either Matt goes with them or they will cut him off financially. Matt declines,saying that he doesnt need money or family. Despite this Matt is caring,friendly,loyal and gullible. He is so kind that people might take advantage of him. For example in the season 5 episode "Wet n wild",where Matt is introduced to a new lifeguard Neely Capshaw, who was transferred from Huntington. She asks if she could work with Matt in his tower,so he could teach her the basics. However Neely turns out to be an alcoholic. She hides and drinks secretly in the tower. Matt has to rescue a little girl who Neely didnt notice. When they are giving her CPR,Matt smells the alcohol in Neelys breath and reports her to Mitch. When he and Mitch confront Neely,she claims that Matt sexually harassed her and threatens to sue Baywatch and the county if Matt is not suspended. Eventually Matt and C.J trick Neely into confessing the lie,thus causing her to get fired.
