Sorry about pumping you guys up for this show and then blowing it off. I had a hell of a hard time getting this show to tape. I think I have a conflict when the show comes on. I have been taping that Tom Colicchio show Best New Restaurant and Nashville. I think I can push BNR to a later taping catch Catfish on time this week. Anyway, I’m gonna turn this one on and watch!
Already I miss Max. Charlamagne is no Max. I am not five minutes in and I don’t think Javonni is a man at all. I think this is going to be a chick pretending to be a hot dude. They both keep stressing that “he’s a man” rather unnecessarily. Charlamagne coincidentally already met this girl a couple of weeks ago. Even though they have spoken on the phone, I still think it is a female. Miracle just said there is nothing to make her think he is a girl or anything. Jesus, if this dude is a girl then this whole setup scene was filmed after the fact.
They check the guy’s phone number. All it tells them is that it is a man. You know, in case they have not stressed that enough. After a call to Max for some promotional consideration for a web site. They find that a guy named Rickie Witherspoon is the owner of the phone. Again, Nev says, the good news is that it really is a guy!
Charlamange posts a photo of the fake Javonni and immediately he is identified as some guy online who does videos. Nev contacts him.
Nev shows Miracle Rickie’s information. She says she is not familiar but his listed address is walking distance from her house. Okay. CREEPY STALKER ALERT! Meanwhile, Miracle is crushed that Javonni is not the dude she has been chatting with, nor is his name Javonni. Nev goes after Miracle who is crying outside. Meanwhile Charlamagne was left on Facetime with the hot guy. He is no Max because we see none of that on the show. That said, I am kind of liking Charlamagne on this episode.
Nev calls the catfish and he says he is ready for this to be over. He will send them an address to meet him at. It’s the same address right around the way from Miracle. Rickie says he needs everyone to come in the house. Charlamagne is saying not to go into the house. But everyone else is willing so Charlamagne walks to his death too. Rickie just keeps walking further and further into the house. Charlamagne finds a shit ton of prescription bottles sitting all over the house.
I KNEW IT! THERE IS A FEMALE! SHE IS JOVANNI!
WAIT WHAT??? SHE IS MARRIED TO RICKIE? WHAT? IDGI? She made a page because…a friend of hers boyfriend was cheating on her. She was trying to catch the chick that was with the cheating boyfriend. This makes no sense. Miracle is saying that she is on television looking dumb as hell.
As for me, I was so glad when Rickie walked out and was a dude. Because it seemed so obvious that everyone knew it was a chick from the get go. Charlemagne and Miracle were funny mocking the catfish in the car.
Nev goes to talk to the catfish one on one and gets a PSA on Lupus. Nev convinces Miracle to sit with the catfish. Why? I don’t care about her pity party. But Miracle and the chick hug it out. On Chatfish the two girls are BFFs.
Okay, I know there is a lot of fakeness on the show, but it was just too obvious this week that everyone knew the catfish was a chick. What did y’all think?
