Should they make an episode where Matt robs the house instead of Jon?

    You know, I was actually thinking about this myself the other day. Might not be a bad idea to do a reverse episode. After all, they do say in the intro that they're both former housebreakers. Could be an interesting changeup to see Matt do it instead once.

    He would loose his credibility as the home security guru if he was the one doing the breaking and stealing. If this show does come back for another go around it would be great to see but don't think it will be as exciting as everyone thinks it will be. Plus I think Jon would be a little bit crazy sitting in a van instead of breaking into the house, he says he doesn't but he loves it.

    I'd still love to see how Matt would do it. One reason is that he is always critical of Jon (ex- "What is he still doing in the house?! Get out of there!")

    While I would love to see this, Matt has said he doesn't want to. I think we should all respect that.

    He's said it a number of times and I've heard a number of different reasons, including that it's a part of his life he's trying to put behind him. The place I can remember him saying it for sure, is here. He says "I don't think I'd be very good at robbing a house. Neither does anyone else, apparently, so I'm pretty sure that's not an option. I could never do what Jon does as good as Jon does, so why try?"
