In Case You Missed It: Catfish, Episode 4

Last night’s episode of MTV’s “Catfish” had all the elements of suspense and surprise of prior episodes. But last night’s show had what previous episodes lacked: a happy ending.

Lauren, 22, met Derek, 24, on Myspace when she was 14. According to Lauren, they dated online for 8 years and fell in love, although they’ve never met or video chatted with each other. Lauren lives in Texas, and Derek lives in Maryland. In between their long distance text messages and phone calls, Lauren managed to get pregnant by another man and had a son, Mason, 2.

Nev and Max do their routine online investigative work to determine if Derek is real or fake. They learn that Derek’s phone number is registered to a “R. LeVourne”, a middle aged black man with kids (more on that in a minute).

Nev and Max accompany Lauren and Mason, and Lauren’s guy friend Ryan, to Maryland to meet Derek for the first time (or so MTV wants us to believe).

It turns out that Derek is who he says he is — and not a middle aged black man pretending to be him. There are lots of tears and hugs, and all is right with Lauren’s world — except for a few glaring red flags.

But why let a few red flags interfere with the pursuit of TV ratings, right?

Red flag #1: why didn’t Derek video chat with Lauren in 8 years? Derek claims he was “scared” to meet his dream girl.

Red flag #2: Who paid Derek’s phone bill if Derek’s phone was registered to R. LeVourne? Derek simply shrugged off Nev’s question when he asked him why his phone was registered in another man’s name. But the answer is simple: Nev and MTV needed R. LeVourne (whom we never meet) to build suspense for the “happy ending.”

Red flag #3: What woman would introduce her toddler to a man she met just hours before?

It’s obvious that Nev, who is the show’s producer, knew all along that Derek was real (MTV would not fly all those people to Maryland, only to have Derek refuse to sign the release waiver when they get there).

Last night’s episode satisfied the public’s hunger for a happy ending, if only to reinforce the fantasy that if a woman is patient long enough, prince charming will eventually arrive to sweep her off her feet.

Hopefully MTV will air a follow up show in about a year when the Dopamine wears off and Lauren and Derek start getting on each other’s nerves.

    We always ignore red flags because they interfere with our fantasies. I remember when I dated a woman in the 80s, and she ended up getting pregnant by a gay man during our relationship. I fell for her lies because I thought I was in love. We need to teach our children that Love is NOT a feeling. Love is what we DO, not what we feel. :coffee:

    y’all,

    FAKE! GEORGE ZIMMERMAN DID NOT FILE A CIVIL SUIT AGAINST THE MARTIN FAMILY

    As if the events of the past few days haven’t been tragic enough, on Tuesday, a fake headline from The National Report website claiming “George Zimmerman Files Civil Suit Against Trayvon Martin’s Parents” has sent social media into an uproar over the article that was posted 15 hours ago.

    Zimmerman is not suing Trayvon Martin’s parents, despite the website’s claim that, “George Zimmerman filed a civil suit today just before 5PM EST at the Seminole County, Florida, Courthouse. The suit alleges the parents of Trayvon Martin, failed to control their minor-age son on the evening of February 26, 2012, when Martin repeatedly assaulted Zimmerman, placing him in imminent fear for his life and resulting in the death of Martin.”

    “Four of the six jurors from the murder trial of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman have distanced themselves from statements another juror made in a televised interview.

    The four jurors issued a brief statement Tuesday on court stationery saying the opinions expressed by Juror B37 to CNN’s Anderson Cooper are not representative of their views.

    “The opinions of Juror B37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below,” said the statement, signed by Jurors B51, B76, E6 and E40. The six-sentence statement did not specify what parts of the other juror’s comments they disagreed with.”

    Red flag #2: Who paid Derek’s phone bill if Derek’s phone was registered to R. LeVourne? Derek simply shrugged off Nev’s question when he asked him why his phone was registered in another man’s name. But the answer is simple: Nev and MTV needed R. LeVourne (whom we never meet) to build suspense for the “happy ending.”

    *****************************

    I agree that MTV did that for “drama” because aside from that bit of “suspense” the rest of the show lacked drama. They did not even show any concern with the name being attached to “his” account, even on the after show it was not explained. We get it MTV :winky: :winky:
