My Catfish episodes are stacking up because they are giving us two new episodes each week and ain’t nobody got time for that! But while I have a second, let’s see the foolishness from this episode. Did they just straight up spoil the ending to this episode before it starts? Max is not there because he is giving a TED talk in France. Wow. What is his field of expertise? So Nev’s wife Laura is subbing for Max. Because, thirsty.
Angel is a 26-year-old female from California. She matched on Tinder with Jordan, who is 28 and lives two miles from her. He’s a trucker and a rapper. She thinks Jordan is her soul mate. Angel is also a truck driver. How convenient. Jordan is the typical Catfish. No facetime, cancels plans to meet with wild excuses, hell, he won’t even talk on the phone!. As Nev says, for a trucker, she is lousy at reading signs. Nev and Laura fly to Oakland so maybe Angel will at least get a new couch out of all of this. Laura apparently lets Nev fly to the catfish when she goes along.
Nev and Laura go to talk to Angel. She says they have been planning to get married. Because why not just skip straight to the wedding before talking on the phone or meeting in person. Nev and Laura try to tell her she is texting with a girl, but she’s not listening.
At the extremely simple Internet search that an eight year old could do, the abs picture pops right up on multiple websites. Angel’s girlfriend SeeSee is connected to the fake profiles. Laura doesn’t think SeeSee is the catfish. Perhaps not, but I think she knows something. The next day See See calls and wants to meet with Nev and Laura in private. It looks like See See got the leather couch! The paint job color is somewhere in between yellow and beige. See See confesses that she has also been having a relationship with Jordan. He’s actually called her on the phone. But there are no video chats. They listen to voice mails from Jordan and it sure sounds like a guy. They decide she needs to tell Angel.
See See telling Angel about Jordan seems like really, really bad acting. Some earrings need to be yanked off and weave pulled in this situation. Basically, nothing happened. On the other hand, it did interrupt the usual order of operations.
I love Max but Laura is doing a great job filling in. Both See See and Angel are going with the crew to meet Jordan. But Angel is coming straight from work. She’s not there yet and neither is Jordan. Like Nev, I am thinking that Angel made the whole thing up. She didn’t seem to have much of a reaction to See See’s confession.
Then See See’s has more to confess. She is Jordan! See See says that Angel stole three guys from her years ago. The acting is slightly better but not by much. This seems like a plot by these two to be on TV looking stupid. See See says she wanted Angel to see how it felt to lose a relationship. Nev calls Brandon, Angel’s off and on again LTR. The situation with Jordan has gone on for TWO YEARS if we are to believe any of this, which I don’t. Brandon seems like a good guy. Why is he participating in this farce? They get back together. See See won the couch war though. She got a huge leather couch and Angel stupidly got a white cloth couch. WHITE CLOTH! That would be white and Merlot couch in my house within days.
This show is getting too stupid.
