This week’s episode of Catfish was alright at best. It revolved around this guy named Mike who had been talking to this girl named Kristen online for 3 years.
The first thing that told me somebody was lying was that the chick only lived 40 miles away. 40 miles!! She was too close for them to never have met. Something was going on.
The second thing was the sob story that all people who are Catfishing give for sympathy and an excuse why they can’t physically meet. A car accident has been a part of quite a few of these stories. Whatever, the chick told Mike that she had a glass eye.
Now Mike, being the genius that he is, had sent this girl nudes and everything. Nudes with his actual face in them. If you’re gonna send nudes, at least cut your face off and try to keep any tattoos or identifying things out of the picture. In exchange she texted him what basically looked like headshots. Sir….
Anyway Nev and Max start their investigation and somehow get a number to the girl’s supposed job. Now I wasn’t aware you could just call up jobs and schools and say folks’ name and get their info before I started watching Catfish. But for whatever reason people are more than happy to tell Nev that such and such doesn’t work/go here. So pretty much they discovered that at least the last name was fake, which pissed Mike off.
Mike seemed a little off anyway, so I was hoping he was being Catfished for sheer entertainment value. Somehow Nev and Max got the girl’s year book and looked her up and there was a girl, but she didn’t look like the pictures. She was a heavy set, emo-looking chick. Upon discovering this Nev called, as always, to set up the meeting. Kristen seemed shocked that Mike still wanted to meet, pretty much sure she had been discovered. It was ruined for me when they found the chick on twitter.
She wasn’t the Cyclops I predicted. She did have a glass eye, but that was about it. Nev just had to hold the glass eye. Nasty. She seemed like a nice enough girl, but Mike was like nope. So another Catfish with a sad kinda ending. Womp Womp.
It was pretty boring. Not like last season with the greatness that was Mhissy, Rose, Rod, and whatever that gay black boy pretending to be Amber was named. This season has just been meh. But we’ll see next week when it comes back.
