Antonio From The Ultimatum S2: Freight Broker Job, Family, Business, More

Netflix reality TV star Antonio Mattei had a rough go while on The Ultimatum season 2. Co-star Alex Chapman, after Antonio told him to hold back no punches, told him his girlfriend Roxanne Kaiser doesn’t respect him and treats him as her whipping boy. Antonio, apparently insecure in his four-year on-and-off relationship with Roxanne, was in denial she was saying rude things about him. But, near the end it looked like him and Roxanne were mending their issue. Here’s everything fans need to know about Antonio from The Ultimatum season 2.

In the earlier episodes the rest of The Ultimatum season 2 cast said Antonio is actually extremely extroverted. Roxanne was shocked because Antonio is apparently meek and quiet around her (hmm, we wonder why). Roxanne, before likely getting rejected by Alex, talked disparagingly about Antonio’s lack of ambition, and how you either have it or you don’t, to Alex and his parents. She also brought up his past addiction issues with video games and laziness. She also trashed his inability to ever have a goal in his life.

Meanwhile, Antonio revealed he was previously addicted to drugs and sex in the past, and was “high for six years.” Thankfully, Antonio did a lot of self-improvement before going on the show. His trial wife Kat Shelton created a safe space to let him discuss his issues. However, he couldn’t accept the fact Kat, Alex and Alex’s parents all found Roxanne didn’t respect him. Instead he blamed them and accused of Alex of wanting to steal his girl. Bizarrely, Antonio said he regularly gets messages of guys apparently going after Roxanne and trying to break them up.

Antonio originally hails from Atlanta, Georgia, per his Instagram. His job before going on the show is a freight broker. Despite Roxanne making it sound like he was nearly broke, and Antonio saying her only made about USD$1,500 a month when talking about a date costing $500 would be a third of his monthly take home, freight brokers make on average $90,000 a month after commissions per Indeed. Perhaps Antonio wasn’t a great salesman. Either way, he’s since moved on and started his own business opening a Tint World (car improvements and accessories) in July 2023.

Before work, Antonio studied journalism Georgia State University. In high school, he played lacrosse competitively. Antonio’s tattoo on his chest is a quote from Einstein.

Antonio is very close with his family and friends, posting pictures with them since The Ultimatum premiered. His family originally hails from Puerto Rico, and Antonio also speaks Spanish. Despite the show portraying Roxanne as mean and unsupportive, she’s actually a partner in Antonio’s new business.

Roxanne may have left Antonio several times for other guys throughout the four years they dated before going on the show.

Near the end of the season, it looked like Antonio was making major steps to try and make things work with Roxanne. He was getting up early and trying to figure what business he wanted to create. He also had a good conversation with Roxanne’s parents.

After the show aired, Antonio responded on Instagram with a message defending Roxanne and denying she disrespected him.

“All she said about me was true: I had no goals, ambition, plan, or stability. I received that, long before we were ever on the show and took the opportunity provided by this experience to put in some real work and intention into becoming the BEST version of myself that i could possibly become. What you saw wasn’t self hate, or manipulation or any of the long list of things people have decided it was — it was the end of a life long victim mindset that has always held me back,” Antonio wrote in an IG story.

“Whether I love Roxanne now is irrelevant because I have her to thank for being on the path that I’m on now.”

Antonio and Roxanne are still going strong after The Ultimatum season 2 reunion episode. They look very much in love, despite Roxanne still not wearing the engagement ring.
