Matthew Morris takes the bronze scissors in Shear Genius: Watch his exit interview

Colorado's been on a roll lately when it comes to reality show contestants.

Fort Collins' Haeley Vaughn and Denver's Lily Scott made strong showings on American Idol.

And Louisville's Nicole Fox actually won cycle thirteen of America's Next Top Model; read our Q&A with Fox by clicking here.

For a while, it looked as if Denver's Matthew Morris might be following in Fox's footsteps and take the grand size in the latest season of Bravo's hairstylist competition, Shear Genius.

But despite winning a slew of challenges over the course of the season, he came in third to champ Brig Van Osten and runner-up Janine Jarman.

As is clear from his exit interview, Morris is as feisty as ever. Indeed, he predicts that his finish will do more to fuel his creativity than a victory would have.

Look below for the video, paired with Morris's bio.

Matthew's career quickly caught fire after he was named "Editorial Stylist of the Year" by the North American Hairstyling Awards in 2005. In 2008 and 2009, Elle Magazine named the Matthew Morris Salon the Best Salon in Colorado. Matthew has become a fixture at New York City's Fashion Week, having styled for numerous designers and supermodels over the last 14 seasons. He has style celebrities that include Rosario Dawson, Paris Hilton, Idina Menzel and the Scissor Sisters. Matthew currently serves as the Fashion Editor for Denver's 303 Magazine as well as on the Editorial Board for New York's Launchpad Magazine, and his work has been featured in Allure Magazine.
