EDITED: It was confirmed to me today that Kendra did sue about the episode and the result was that it would air one time only and not be available online. So if you missed it, you missed out!
I was informed today on the blog about Bianca and Brogan that I missed a new episode that ran last Tuesday. It never bodes well when a show spits out the last two episodes in the same week. Sound like ratings may not be good this season. Which is odd because my Catfish recaps bring in a ton of traffic from Google searches. Or maybe my recaps are just super-duper good, if you missed any from the last couple of seasons, you can find them here. If you are new, my blog quality varies widely depending on my hormonal fluctuations and my blood alcohol content levels so if you hate one, you may love the next one. #NoQualityControl Oh yeah and Brogan, I mean Tia dropped by today to assure us that she does not have a speech impediment, she just mumbles a lot. #NotARocketScientist.
Okay on with the show, which I am told I will find quite annoying. The guy Blake has been on screen for two seconds and my reaction is douchebag. Kiersten looks like a dime a dozen Dallas pole dancer. Fake platinum hair, fake eyelashes so heavy she can barely open her eyes, and I haven’t seen them yet but likely fake tits. The usual. Chances of this being the real person that numnuts is talking to are nil.
They could never meet due to a variety of catastrophes on her end (probably one of the usual catastrophes like being a man, or 300 lbs, or 68 years old). So he got suspicious and did a little Internet research. You don’t say, you mean Nev and Max are not the only two people on the planet with access to Google! Who knew? Blake has managed to figure out that her name is really Kendra and the pictures were all fake! Wow. I did not see that coming. But Blake wants to meet her anyway because a relationship built on lies and deceit is always worth giving the good old college try.
Blake has tried to meet Kendra many times but she flakes out at the last moment. She says she has a kid. She invited him to meet her at a hotel but left him in the lobby because “she had her kid with him.” Well that is perfectly understandable, don’t give up on
stupidity love, Blake.
Sidenote: Nev is on crutches.
I hope Kendra is a man because Blake is in the land of Gay Denial. Blake is telling the boys all the lies that Kendra told her that he still believes. They go to look at her Instagram which is private and despite the obvious unbridled love between these two, he is not included on her friends list. The new girl is a brunette and actually prettier than the other girl. On her Instagram page there is a link to her Facebook which they click on. Blake is mystified by the technical wizardry of Nev and Max. He has never seen the Facebook page before. Nev and Max don’t believe the new brunette is who he is talking to either. Blake is confused.
Nev and Max try to contact Sara Grace who is the person in the blonde stripper pictures. Sara seems really nice. They first ask her about Kiersten. Sara says that a girl on Facebook named Kendra asked her to take a picture of herself holding a piece of paper that said “Kiersten” because that is her nieces name and she is a big fan of her and her Facebook pictures. BUSTED! Sara jumps on video chat with lips twice the size of Lisa Rinna’s. She give a dramatic story about how upset she is that someone used her picture online. The second brunette is Sarah Ordo whose pictures “Kendra” was also using. The plot thickens. This Catfish is fond of the name Sara. Hah. Nev just said “the plot thickens.” I just said that, Nev!
Time to share the information with Blake. She’s now lying to him under yet a second fake name. Blake still thinks that “behind it there is a really, really good person.” I’m speechless. No I am not, Blake, you sir, are an idiot.
Time for the scene where Nev convinces a reluctant catfish to meet with her victim. The catfish mentions issues with her son (which is a familiar excuse). She lives in Idaho and she is ecstatic to meet him. They still don’t know her name, and she went from reluctance to ecstasy in 30 seconds. So off they go to Idaho while Blake stares wistfully into the clouds, hopeful ever still.
Once in Iowa, the guys drive to a park to meet Kendra. Blake is still full of hope and the opportunity for new beginnings, no matter who she is. And it is the 300 pound catfish. She is kind of cute just very large. Kendra is still lying. She says the second name is a friend of hers. She’s not. She says that she was part of a group of girls who make fake profiles so they can give them out when they go out to party so they can five guys that profile if they are a jerk. Um, if they see you at the club, aren’t they going to realize that the person in the profiles is not you? This makes no sense. Plus aren’t you supposed to be a mom with a job where you travel a lot? When are you doing all of this partying with your posse of female friends? You live in Idaho. There are only 64 other females in Idaho. Bitch, it’s I DA HO! Why hasn’t anyone asked her for an ID? She says that she was in a posse with Sara Grace and another girl and when they start asking about that posse she gets defensive and shuts down and wants to talk about her feeling for Blake.
Blake calls her out on her lies. He says she is still lying. She has no remorse. Kendra completely turns the tables and says basically, that if he still thinks she is lying, she doesn’t want anything to do with him and she will go home to her son who is having surgery! Bitch you ain’t got no baby. You’re a virgin. Kendra says, “If you don’t believe me, why am I even sitting here, I’m going home!”
Commercial. I fully expect Blake to chase her all the way to her car when the show returns. Nope, if he did that, they didn’t show it. Back at the hotel Blake is embarrassed. FINALLY. Nev calls Kendra IF THAT IS HER REAL NAME. She shows up saying that she is there (late) despite the fact that her son is barely breathing and the doctor had to come over. Okay, nothing weird about that. If the doctor calls she will have to leave. Her phone rings and she sends the call to voice mail and says, “He’ll call me if he need to be admitted.” Well, I feel better about that kid now. Apparently, he is still breathing at least.
I should take this opportunity to point out that Kendra has in both meeting gone out of her way to copy Sarah Ordo’s looks, from headband to eyelashes. She is giving an academy award-winning performance. They begin questioning her. She is denying everything. She goes nuts and cries and says that she is not lying she is there to tell the truth while her kid is in the hospital where she should be. Max tells her that Sara Grace told her that she took her photos. And she yells at Max to shut up! Max leaves. Nev plays good cop. Her phone rings and she has to go to her dying son. Outside the hotel Blake and Kendra argue while both are miked. She says she can’t take this back now! She should have never done this! Kendra tells Blake he is supposed to be her friend. He says he is her friend. She says no, friends don’t do this to friends! Blake hugs her and says he will still be in her life. They both say they are glad they did this.
Blake is now friends with Sara Grace!
Kendra does not want anything to do with Blake. She never came clean. What a horrific person. I hope she is exposed to all 14 people in her stupid ass town.
FOOTNOTE: (See what I did there?) The reason Nev had an injured foot is because this was as season 3 episode that was never aired. This was one of the best episodes of Catfish ever. So I believe it did not air because Kendra, or whatever her name is, did not want it aired after it was clear she was busted. I would have thought Blake would have been the one to sue but he did a follow-up and even in her follow-up Kendra looked like a GIANT cunt. (um literally, hot dog in a hallway.) So forget what I said about the two episode dump meaning poor ratings because this was an EPIC episode they played in the following season after some sort of court battle. Awesome.
