Last night’s episode of MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show featured a woman, Keyonnah, who believed she was in an online relationship with former kiddie rapper and BET 106 & Park host Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow.
Keyonnah’s doubts were erased when the impersonator sent her $10,000, which she claims she spent paying off her family’s bills. Catfish‘s dimwitted producers Nev Schulman and Max Joseph pretended not to know how easy it was to confirm the identity of the person imitating the rapper.
In a world where information is literally at our fingertips, Nev and Max couldn’t put 2+2 together until 30 minutes into the show. By then the hapless trio are on a plane to Atlanta to meet “Bow Wow”.
BET.com posted a video of the real Bow Wow reacting to the show. In his usual grandiose, self-absorbed, overly confident manner, Bow Wow gave some insight into just how difficult it is to BE Bow Wow. “These eyes ain’t contacts… you can’t buy these…”
He then invited the show’s principal characters, Keyonnah and Dee-Pimpin, onto his show to explain their actions. Watch Bow Wow’s reaction and the full episode of Catfish, episode 14 below.
