Remember Cabbage Patch Kids? Those dolls in the 80s that were so ugly they were cute? Catfish has become sort of like that in the sense that this show is so ridiculously stupid it’s funny. Even if this stuff is all made up, I can’t for the life of me figure out how people would agree to look this dumb. I’ve actually had more than one person from these show ask me to remove some of their identifying features. So clearly, they are not thinking things through.
Okay, at least this time we are starting with two lesbians. So perhaps this time, the catfish will be a guy pretending to be a girl for a change. The chick getting catfished is really attractive and seems way too smart for this. Sydney eventually admitted her name is Whitney. She also had a twin brother who would say mean things for her. She missed midterms to go be with her for a surgery but she never found her. Max and Nev seem very concerned about this particular Catfish. They must be editing this way down because other than a few times when the catfish seemed to know where she was (stalking her?) I don’t see her as more dangerous than most of these morons.
The boys contact a couple of guys who talk to her on facebook and three of them get back to her and say they don’t know who she is. It looks like all the facebook accounts are all Whitney. She contacts Ayissha and wants to know why the Catfish guys are “contacting her real friends.”
This episode is kind of boring. Nev calls and we get the typical initial refusal and then agreement to meet.
Ayissha and the boys fly to Houston to meet Whitney in a park, presumably near a body of water. I can’t believe how many people have never been on an airplane. That is so odd to me. Well, Whitney is a 26-year-old with bright red braids. She looks immature.
At the meeting, Whitney or whatever her name is claims not to remember a lot of things, like the whole surgical procedure. Ayissha is pissed. Eventually, Whitney gives a sob story about how hard it is to come out and how she turned to the Internet for friends.
The next day “Whitney” cries and apologizes some more. I seriously doubt her name is Whitney. Ayissha forgives her. Ayissha no longer chats with Whitney. Whitney is enlisting in the Navy.
That was dumb.
