  • My Review of Matthew Underwood

    7.5
    I loved him on Zoey 101 and thought he was cute by mostly a jerk on there, and now I am sad because he has been taking drugs and I think he has been in or is in prison.

    It's a shame that that is what he has been doing after Zoey 101 stopped, and now I have looked at pictures from him from 2012 and he's gotten gross and not cute at all.

    I hope not everyone on Zoey 101 turns out like Matthew did.moreless
