Well, guys, I started watching Catfish: The TV Show. Actually, I watched one episode and gave up. I feel like I used to watch it back when it was a new show but I can’t remember. Anyway. I was watching some of the clips on YouTube and I seriously cannot comprehend what I’m watching.
These people are often in long distance relationships.
That being said, if someone is refusing to video call or voice call, surely that’s a huge sign.
Maybe, maybe not. I hate phone calls. There are people I only communicate with via email. How do they know I am who I say I am?
These Catsnappers have found a way around that too! In one episode – actually the first and only one I saw, the girl had taken a picture of some model and used it to create a fake profile wherever.
That episode was hilarious to me because the Catfishee actually stole the Catfisher from her sister. She tried to get her sister to come on the journey with her and her sister was like NOPE! Imagine that. You steal your sister’s boo and you want her to be there when you meet him. I think that girl was a few breaks short of a Kit Kat.
Delving into Catfish further and you come across people who have catfished hundreds of people. On one hand, they’re obviously messed up and deprived in some way. On the other, how do people even find the time to talk to that many people. I’m at a point in my life where it’s a struggle to keep in contact with the three friends that I have. These people are operating a mafia level game of friendship. One guy had code names and descriptions for each of the people he’d Catfished saved on his Google Drive.
I wish I had that time, I really do.
The most bizarre Catfish clip I’ve seen is the one where the two cousins are traipsing around with Nev and Max and at the end of their trip to the third location, one of the cousin reveals that she’s the one who’s been Catfishing her own cousin because he said she looks like a fat Kelly Pryce.
Look. She really felt like she was the winner in all of this, but sis, you spent three years wasting time talking to your own cousin. You played yourself.
I’m not an advocate of violence, but she really could have just whooped his ass in three minutes to get her point across.
The thing is that a lot of these people are unrepentant. They have their reasons for catfishing and THEY DON’T CURR.
That melee takes me to my last point. Why are people seemingly so happy to go through this kind of humiliation on TV?
There was the girl who thought she was dating Bow Wow. It turned out that it was a lesbian pretending to be Bow Wow. Or Lil Bow Wow, cause she was on the small side.
1. Who Catfishes as Bow Wow? Sis was sending this girl money and everything. That should have been the first clue.
2. Who is checking for Bow Wow like that? If he messaged me, I would leave him on read.
It’s like these people lose their minds.
Like that one guy who was super convinced he was talking to Katy Perry. He seemed like he was a few Pringles short of a cylinder, but still, surely he has some sense?
