Catfish Finale Recap: Can Catfish Make You a Better Person?

Originally posted 07/10/2014 10:00AM

Fellow fishermen, we have reached the end of season 3. Can you believe it?

As a present for wading through all the complex cyber love stories this season, Catfish is giving us a guest star. In this episode, Selita Ebanks is taking shotgun, while Max Joseph is sent to the back of the car to film. After hearing the model was a fan of the show, Nev Schulman invited her for a ride-along. At first it seems ridiculous to have a random celebrity join the team, but Ebanks proves she knows how to serve harsh truths and offer tender moments just as well as Nev and Max.

The waters of the web are still wriggling with new catfish; some are just harder to catch than others.

This is one of those extra tricky cases.

The story starts off the same as in many of these MTV tales. Jeff is an average guy who is enlisted in the Navy, and, as a result, doesn't have too much time to date. By accident he becomes Facebook friends with a girl named Megan, who shares his love for animals and has Dallas Cowboy cheerleader good looks, to boot.

Their online friendship blossoms into romance, complete with daily phone calls and the usual suspicious absence of videochatting. Now that things are getting serious, Jeff is contemplating whether to re-enlist in the Navy or take a step towards starting a life with Megan.

It took seven episodes, but we finally have our first Catfish love triangle of the season.

Solana's story starts with Myspace, that's how long this love game has been going on. At only 14 years old she met Elijah on the social network, where the two teens struck up a friendship, which eventually turned into an online relationship. Then Elijah disappeared. With his Myspace page deactivated and no other way to contact him, Solana was forced to give up on her mystery man. Until ...

"This is the kind of loser that gives our show a bad name," Max Joseph indignantly proclaims before storming off-camera in the most recent episode of Catfish. So yeah, this one was a doozy.

This season, Nev Schulman and his camera-claw buddy Max have encountered lying family members, talented schemers and scorned celebs, but they were still shocked by the web of lies they unraveled this time. The saga starts with John, a city boy born and raised in South Detroit, also known as Dearborn, Michigan. John comes to our Catfish connoisseurs with the usual tale of finding love online and wanting verification that this paramour is the real deal.

Catfish Recap: Even Celebrities Can Get 'Catfished'

Originally posted 06/05/2014 11:45AM

Sometimes celebrities really are just like "normal people." Not only do they buy groceries and go to the park, they can also get caught up in the tangled web of a catfish, as Rent actress Tracie Thoms did in the latest episode of Catfish.

The star reached out to Nev Schulman and Max Joseph for help following up on a deceiving Twitter fan. By the time our boys arrived, Tracie had already discovered that one of her Twitter followers was pretending to be someone she was not. When the actress tried to confront her fan "Sammie" about the behavior, the mystery Tweeter pulled a vanishing act, leaving Tracie with plenty of unanswered questions.

This Catfish isn't about love, it's all business.

Unlike previous season 3 episodes, number four doesn't involve a romance that began on the web. Lucille believes her online connection could be a key to finding a job in the music industry. Unfortunately, even before Nev Schulman and Max Joseph show up, Lucille has already discovered a few ... fishy details about her supposed "business parter," Kidd Cole. Worse yet, this Catfish is getting Mr. Kim Kardashian involved, claiming he is the youngest artist under Kanye West's record label GOOD Music.
