Catfish Season 3 finale Episode 10- Bianca and Brogan
I can’t believe that it’s already the season finale of Catfish! I’m sad that I joined you mid-season—hopefully I’ll be back!
We’ve returned to the land of ridiculously named twenty-somethings, aka the land of Catfish. Nev gets an email from Bianca– a girl who has been talking to another girl over the internet named Brogan. Bianca fell in love with Brogan because Bianca is really into body modification and Brogan’s pictures depicted her with a lot of tattoos. Bianca felt an instant connection with Brogan, but had never wanted to video chat with her because she thought it would be awkward. Then, all of a sudden, Brogan vanished into thin air. She deleted her Facebook and stopped answering her calls.
All I can say is that I am SO RELIEVED that the names of our subjects this week are a bit easier to spell than last week… why do people like to make up names/ spell normal names oddly just to make them different? Is the world so inundated with names that people feel the need to change the spelling just to be hipster?
The synopsis of tonight’s show reads as follows: “A woman searches for answers about a man she met online”. At this point, I feel as if the plot summaries should say something like “tonight, you’ll find the same plot that happened last week magically happens again this week”. Folks, I love this show, but that’s the basic gist of it.
Catfish Season 3, Episode 7 “Solana & Elijah” Recap
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Reality Tea team as a contributor for Catfish: The TV Show! I thought I would begin with a small introduction to the show, for those of you that haven’t watched it before. It airs on MTV on Wednesday nights at 10PM, and it stars Nev Schulman and his partner in crime Max Joseph. The two traverse around the country, assisting people who email them asking for help with online experiences. Some of the people who write in are people who believe that they have found love, while others believe that they are assisting a person who promises careers and other glamorous opportunities in exchange for money or goods. Most, if not all of the time, the people who write in have never even seen the person that they are communicating with, and the people who are “catfishing” them refuse to video chat or speak on the phone. Usually, they use the excuse that they have a terrible internet connection, or that they don’t have access to a webcam (does any laptop come without a webcam anymore?). This show has increased in popularity so much over the past few seasons that it has inspired Webster’s Dictionary to officially add the word “Catfish” to its ever expanding repertoire (I’m not lying! Here’s the link, look for yourselves! It is the second definition at http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/catfish?show=0&t=1403128382).
And so, without further ado, let’s get into tonight’s episode!
