I'm starting to feel like Nev is trying to drop subtle hints to Max about his disappearing act. After Max went on "holiday"
now we have an actual ghost Catfish. Watch closely and you can see Nev slyly give Max the side-eye as they discuss this week's case of a catfish who suddenly disappeared and ceased all contact. When I eventually start my blog/self-help book (publishers are interested), I'm going to dedicate a whole chapter to "They're Not Dead, They're Avoiding You."
It's a brave man who decides to move across the country to live with a girl he's never met. Did I say brave? I mean stupid. Really, really stupid. But this week's catfishee Jaylin is determined to be with the girl he's never even talked to on the phone. So she's obviously a dude, right? Spoiler alert: in this week's Catfish, we learn that there are exceptions to every rule.
I could start a dating advice blog based on how many episodes of Catfish I've endured. Throughout my need to better understand 21st century dating, I came across the term "ghosting", which refers to the act where one person in a relationship suddenly ends all communication, rather than simply admitting they're not interested in the other person any more. An example of this would be a co-host of a long-running reality series suddenly disappearing four episodes into a new season without explanation. Are you reading this, Max? I have one question: how dare you.
What's in a name? I blame the parents. If they can't be bothered to spell your name properly, you're on a losing path from the start. Look at the revenge Shuntay played on her mum last week
for giving her such a made-up moniker. It was hard not to feel sorry for this week's catfishee Leuh, whose parents decided the common spelling of "Leah" wasn't good enough and gave her a name that when written down looked like the sound you make when hocking up a glob of phlegm. But then Leuh was about to go to college and apparently didn't know how to use the internet, so it wasn't that hard not to feel sorry for her after all.
Momma doesn't always know best. In this week's episode, we have our very first MILC: Mum I'd Like to Catfish.
Nev and Max are back! That's Nev and Max: not Nev and some random from YouTube; not Nev and a "musician hip-hop rapper artist"
, Nev and MAX. Just like God intended.
Great questions of our time: if a tree falls in a forest with no one to see it, does it still make a sound? What is the sound of one hand clapping? Can you be stalked by someone you've never met? At least one of these will be answered in this week's Catfish.
Apologies for the lack of recaps recently. I took the One Direction news a lot harder than I expected. And just like their impending "break", this episode of Catfish left me with more questions than answers.
It's been a hard week for love: Gwen, Gavin, Zayn, Perrie, Miss Piggy and Kermit all took a one-way trip to Splitsville. Could this week's Catfish be the love story we've been waiting for? No, because love is dead, people are shit and everyone and everything is shit.
This week it's another Catfish curveball: Nev and Max did their Googling on behalf of an actual rapper. This is like finding out something you couldn't believe was true was indeed true after all. I can't help but feel I should be working harder on these openings.
