Default What do you think of MTV's Catfish?

At first i thought it was gona be lame but its pretty interesting. I just feel bad for the people because its like they wasted their time. I never saw the Catfish movie but i still don't believe in online dating esp if I didnt meet the guy in real life first.

I've only seen one episode. I felt really bad that the girl was misled, but I guess you never really know who that person is until you meet them IRL.

The episode I saw the girl thought she was in a relationship with a guy who called himself "Scorpio."

I caught some of the movie when MTV aired it the other week & was intrigued. I saw most of one episode (Sonny & RJ/Jameson) and the beginning of this weeks episode.

I'm interested in seeing it all! Don't spoil what happened with Scorpio, I didn't get to see much.

I found the movie and the show equally fascinating.

I think what fascinates me the most is how trusting (and yes, naive) some people are.

Back when I was internet dating, I was Googling the heck out of guys who I had only chatted with via email or phone once or twice. I truly can't imagine NOT investigating a person I started to have feelings for.

It's a good show, very interesting. Idk if the first was real, unfortunately the second episode was staged. The girl in that episode is a paid actor. She models and wanted to get out there a little more. So it makes me question the other episodes. But whether it's real or not, i like watching it because that's actually how i met my current BF.

DepressedCurls how do you know it was staged? I thought it was a documentary & I hate when I get wrapped up in "reality" shows that are fake. Although I do find it hard to believe these women are this naive...and the next episode is about a couple who have dated online for 10 years and never met. That sounds very skeptical to me too, so I was wondering how real this show is before I read your reply.

I saw this movie the other day. It was sad, I felt bad for that super-lonely woman and worse for the guy she tricked. I don't think it was real though.

I have not watched the show, but I have seen the movie. I do believe it was fake, just a written script, but I know a Catfish or two. They have several fake Facebook Profiles and use them to stalk guys they are interested in. They friend several women and men the guy knows, with the fake profile, to keep tabs, or start trouble.

One is... Oh hello padded room.

Let me add the people I have known have not been women stuck in a mundane/hard life looking for an escape. It has been young women in their 20's who are either bored and angry or have substance abuse problems, are compulsive liars and have a history of various psychological disorders. Some have been known to carry around guns in their purses because of the marriages they break up for fun. Literally, for fun. Sad... yes and no. Some could grow up, let go, and realize there is absolutely nothing wrong with being yourself. The others are a different ball game.

I'm watching "Matt and Kim". I wonder how common that is? I imagine many of the people who pretend to be someone else have some sort of physical challenge. At least that's what I've seen of this show so far.

smdh, wow....

I still have not watched the show yet, but I did read a description and saw the word "docudrama". Okay then. The scripted movie it is based on was still enjoyable to watch.

^^^Cheaters was pretty obviously staged most of the time. I saw one ep where the wife slapped hubs in the back of the head. I think that was improv. The look on his face was pretty hilarious.

Wasn't the host of cheaters stabbed? That part was real (right?)


when I saw the prviews for the 10 year couple, I thought, no way. But seeing the episode, it made a lot more sense.

But seriously, have these people never heard of google?
