With all of the "fat shaming" to the level of outright bullying and offensiveness that's out there in the world - it doesn't surprise me if someone who is "fat" doesn't reveal that to all and sundry on the internet.

 

Did she lie about her weight? Okay, but understandable? To me, yes.

 

This show, if anything, only emphasizes why people do that.

This episode was weird for me in that Mike came off as an ass with Kristyn being the sympathetic character. I felt very bad for her, and thought her reason for catfishing was the most understandable one we've seen. Not that what she did was right, but I totally got why she did it.

 

And yeah, Mike was obviously pissed the moment he saw her. The conversation with his friends was telling...

Friend: "But you liked her personality?"
Mike: "Yeah, but it wasn't the same girl behind the personality."
Friend: "Ohhhhhhh I got you."

 

I think it was obvious to everyone watching what the implication there was. I don't blame Mike for being mad about her lying or for not wanting to pursue a relationship with her, but he just seemed to act so tactlessly about it. I don't know... something about his attitude just came off really badly, moreso than any other "victim" on this show.

From their first encounter, I thought Mike was really kind and decent to her, I found him very sympathetic [snip]. It's not ok to lie to and manipulate someone, and yes, people of the male sex do have feelings and do care if you mess with them. He had a right to be upset, and I grew tired of listening to her story (the same as all other catfishes).

If you just wanted a human connection, go to a message board where everyone uses fake names and avatars and meet some non-romantic friends. There are a lot of support forums online for your troubles. You don't need fake pictures or facebook profiles to do that, and you don't need to pretend to be dating someone either. There are many people out there that do like plus-size people, so yes, it is best to be honest about who you are and what you look like and attract a genuine partner.

He had a right to be upset, but he could've had a little more tact when confronting the situation and later when discussing it with his homeboys. Also, I didn't want it to seem like I was defending what she did, but his gross behavior just made her a more sympathetic character. A lying one, but sympathetic none the less. There's never a good excuse to catfish someone, and she was no different. Her story just seemed more genuine than the others that have been featured: bullied, moved to a new town, revenge, etc.

I agree with you MHCBadDude. She lied and there's no excuse or sympathy for that, but she did seem more genuine in the end than any of the others. For me, it had to do with the way she handled the first confrontation. She almost started to go down the road of, "I didn't lie about my feeeeelings..." but then she explained why she did it, gave the truth, and MOST importantly to me is that she didn't beg him to stay with her or go on continuing to give excuses. She knew it was over, she knew what she did was wrong, she knew (unlike a lot of other catfishers on this show) that he didn't owe her a second chance or further conversation. So she went out with the goal of letting Mike know that was sorry and that it wasn't all for nothing, that he did help someone in need. What validated it for me was when Mike's face softened up a bit at the end and he said something about feeling good that he at least helped her and that she "ruin his life."

 Again, NOT in any way defending the catfishing. But as far as apologies go, I'd like to see more like this, rather than the "I didn't lie about my feelings, I still love you! So what? We can make it work!!!!! I only lied about this and this and this and this... but I looooooove you. I said I'm soooorry!" 

 

ETA: I agree with you as well, Glade. There's no "better" excuse for catfishing than the other stories.

What happened to the Goggle image search? Whose pictures were those? Was the woman in the pictures a friend of Kristen or just another poor soul that had their pictures stolen? My guess is the later, but any discussion along those lines would detract from the 'poor Kristen' theme they were going for. Why is it cool to have the female Catfishees Skype with the Hot guys that had their pictures stolen, but not for the male Catfishees to do the same? For all the new shows I get a feel, based upon what they show and what they leave out early in the show, how the end game is going to play out. The ommssion of the Google image search indicated to me that they found solid evidence that the pictures were bogus.

 

I agree with whomever said that she was never a 'skinny girl', even in the high school pictures she was moderatelly overweight.

 

Her taking the eye out was cool. When the subject first came up I was thinking "ask her to take her eye out!!", but I never thought they would actually ask.

 

Reality: Looks and weight are a big deal to the vast majority of men, particularly a man like Mike who is not terrible looking and was in pretty good shape (maybe he was short, But I did not notice), and evidently had a good enough job to buy his own home. But most men (and women) are unwilling to admit the importance of looks because some people will immediatelly berate them, it is easier to play the "she lied to me" game.

At least he kept it real about it. He didn't act like it was only about personality, and I honestly don't blame him. Physical attraction is important, in my opinion. If someone is talking to a person who claims to look a certain way and then they end up looking LIKE THE TOTAL OPPOSITE, you're not only gonna feel disappointed but probably a bit grossed out (considering he sent her nude pics and such).

Ultimately, he is gonna be okay because he seemed to have his life together. Jen's the one who will need to look deep into her soul to fix that self-esteem. I get why she wanted to look like someone else, I understand her story BUT it doesn't excuse lying to someone for years. It just doesn't.

I did LOL when Mike showed Nev and Max the pictures the catfish would send him. They looked so unbelievably fake. You'd think he would have realized they weren't taken with a cell phone, right?

To me, no. [snip]

There's a lot of word wrangling but it seems to me that she's basically coming down on the side of the catfish, depicting catfishing as an understandable reaction to Western culture's general insistence that if you A) don't look like a model, and B) aren't seeking a romantic partner of the opposite sex, you're SOL and deservedly so.


Thanks for the link. My thought is that the article author stained to draw something profound and insightful out of a fairly ordinary reality TV program, and wanted to find a way to drop in a couple of Salon approved political statments along the way. The only way to accomplish those goals seemed to be taking a sympathetic view of the Catfish.

I think looks are important to men AND women. When you see someone across the room that you don't know & find them attractive, it's their looks that you're reacting to, you don't know what their personality is like, you just know you like the way they look. They've done studies that prove that attractive people get hired more, & actually make more money than unattractive people. It's built into our DNA to like attractive more, because we associate attractive with health, & health means healthy babies. So while I think the people who get catfished are very often jerks because the person who was their soul mate suddenly turns out to not be because they don't look like a porn star, I do understand when they suddenly find out that they've been lied to, they are really pissed about it, I would be too. Of course, I think most of them are idiots for not figuring out they were being lied to, 

 

Krystyn took her eye out on national TV, that took balls. My DVR cut off right after she said she had a boyfriend, did she say anything else interesting?

Oh, the eye removal turned my stomach. I had to fast forward, and in a way that put the fast into fast forward. Not what I wanted or expected to see.

 

I found Mike a hypocrite. To put it in parlance even he could understand: He thought he had a Rolls Royce with a dent in the fender, but then he thought he only had a junker. That's how he saw her. And it made me upset that she felt she had to apologize for the way she looks simply because she's heavier than he thought. That's what I felt she was saying "I'm sorry" for - because she felt her appearance was going to disappoint him.

 

I think he is a hypocrite because he told her "I'm not going to judge you for your eye" but then he did judge her for her appearance - only it was her weight, not her eye. He's the type for whom the saying "I can lose weight, but you'll still be an asshole" was coined.

 

He did soften up toward the end, when she stroked his ego a bit - or that allowed him to save face in front of the inevitable wolf pack of buddies he had hoped to impress. Now he's a savior, not just a guy with a "No Fat Chicks" T shirt stuffed in his closet.

 

Totally did not buy that he was fending off women at the bar. His ears are nearly as big as his head, and his personality is null.

he said something about feeling good that he at least helped her and that she "ruin his life."

 

He said she didn't ruin his life.

My DVR cut off right after she said she had a boyfriend, did she say anything else interesting?

 

 

She said he was moving (to Florida) with them, and that her parents were "going to buy them a..." I couldn't make out the word she said next, despite rewinding it a few times.
 
Mike said he was single and looking.

I think Krysten said her family had bought a salon in Florida (her beauty school connection), and they were all picking up and moving from their Michigan horse farm down south.  And this included her new boyfriend, too.  Since a grand total of two months had elapsed between the catfish encounter and the final skype with Nev and Max, I didnt believe a word of Krysten's fairytale ending, at all.

 

I thought Nev and Max were reprehensible in asking that girl to remove her prosthetic for some kind of TV-viewing thrill.  Like she was a freak in a sideshow.  That she agreed to do it was just tragic to me.  I closed my eyes and refused to look.

 

Mike began to melt down as soon as the guys told him that K had lied about her last name.  It seemed to me he was finished right then and there, and the guys had to talk him in to carrying on to more research and the meetup. He wasn't a bad guy to me.  He thought he was in love, and the exchange of full-frontal nude photos betweem them for sexplay just added to his devastation.  I did wonder where Krysten got provocative photos to send him?  He mentioned his own pics showed his face.  So, didn't K's nudes also show a face?  

 

Btw, I think it's horrendous that any type of school --  trade, college, community college, etc -- would acknowledge a student's enrollment to strangers via phone call!  Even dancing the "do you know her last name" gavotte. It would be different if a student gave permission to the school to release that info (to a financial institution, prospective employer) but not a random MTV call via Catfish production.  Really lowdown and slimey, IMO.

Her parents were buying a beauty salon in Orlando. That gal desperate needs therapy. I found myself not even believing that she was moving to Florida, or that she had a boyfriend. I guess we'll see in the reunion next week. She's messed up, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out she's a chronic liar with more Mikes out there.

Looks matter to people. Especially if you get an image in your head. I don't think this guy or anyone else has any obligation to overlook physical appearance. I'm not attracted to overweight men - period. If it happened to me, I'd bail too. Especially if I'd been staring at another person the whole time and imagining them in my mind. I'm also not attracted to short or old man. These people need to sign the fuck off the Internet.

This is true.  Vision is our primary sense, so if someone doesn't look good to you, whatever good to you means, you're not going to continue on with the relationship.  Is that fair?  No, but that's reality.

 

The truth is, she lied, plain and simple.  Lying isn't okay just because a person is sympathetic; morality doesn't care what you look like.

Sleekandchic, I've worked at various colleges for almost twenty years. There is no way that school released confirmation that she attended there without her having given permission to do that. Current and former students have to sign an enrollment verification request form and specifically list who the school can release that info to. My assumption is they got the form signed and then staged the phone call, both in last night's episode and the one prior.

It seemed to me that he was more worried what his friends would think than anything else. They were very bro-y, and I suspect they had been taunting him about her for a long time, telling him that she would turn out to be fat. That's probably why he lied and said he had met her in person.

 

I also think that she wasn't lying, exactly, when she said she was skinny before the accident. She may have been pudgy, but if she really did gain 130 pounds (or whatever she said), then her formerly pudgy self would have seemed positively svelte by comparison.

 

I feel for her. What she did was wrong, but that accident radically changed her life. It left her disfigured, depressed, and alone, since her douchey boyfriend abandoned her.

It was awful what happened to her;but it still doesn't give her the right to lie to someone.  People go through horrific things without having to lie. I think the woman needs to get off the Internet and get some serious therapy.

 

I do think Mike was upset that she lied, he was even angry that Kristen lied about her last name. In fact, from that point, Mike was discouraged about everything concerning Kristen.  In other words, he was pissed at her before she opened the door.

What I'm curious about is the exchange of racy pictures between the two of them. Mike mentioned that Krysten had sent him sexy pictures and in turn he'd sent her the same kind of photos. I want to know where Krysten got the more sexual pictures of this woman that she used to Catfish Mike. Why no reverse image search this time around? Does Krysten actually know the woman in the pictures she used?

 

I get where the sympathy for Krysten comes from, but I don't agree. A terrible life altering thing happened to her, but it doesn't give her a pass (not even a little bit) on Catfishing this guy. I think Mike handled the reveal well, and they are still in contact if the update is to be believed. I think he came off well and any hurt and anger he felt towards her was understandable.

 

What I didn't like was how easy on Krysten that Max and Nev where though. I guess if the car accident story wasn't true they probably would've taken the gloves off. I call bullshit on Krysten finding herself a boyfriend within two months that she's so serious about that he's going to move with her and her family to Florida to open up a salon. Do parents really uproot their lives and move from from Michigan to Florida for a venture that has a high rate of failing?

 

I do think it's funny how it seems to go at the two month update that the Catfishee is single, but the Catfisher is involved in a real relationship.

I don't have any sympathy for Krystin catfishing and lying.  I don't really care what her reasons were.  Even if I did think it was one of the better reasons I've seen on this show.  She doesn't get a pass because she's been through something terrible.

 

But I don't really have any sympathy for Mike either.  Yes, he was lied to but they lived less than an hour apart.  Even if she wouldn't meet with you, do some investigating and go find her yourself.  He was also so....what's the word....done? after Nev told him she'd lied the first time.  I think he was a liar too.  He was SOOOOOOOOOOOO in love but at the first sign of a possible lie he's out?  WTF dude?

Yeah, that and, he was just kind of a smug douche about it. He didn't care that she lied. He was so clearly pissed at the idea of all the boners this fat glass eyed girl wasn't gonna inspire when he thought he had a pretty, vulnerable waif on his hands that needed him to make life worth living. That needy tag-along becomes a lot more burdensome when it's a fat girl you'd be too embarrassed to ever be seen with.

I think this sums it all up. He seemed to regard himself as a prize and the very idea of being in any way associated with a girl who looked like her diminished his value. Props to him for maintaining some kind of minimal communication once he realized what an emotional crutch he was for her but IMO he still looks like an idiot for letting it go on for so long. Now that the show has aired he'll probably be beating the women off with a stick and hopefully he's learned to be more cautious and less shallow.

In regards to the catfishees being superficial, the issue here is that they BOTH are superficial.

 

Look, the 300 lbs dude with coke bottle glasses that talks to himself and randomly carries big bags of recycling and rides the subway all day has a lady friend. She is equally interesting. There is a lid for every pot. People find people. You don't NEED to misrepresent yourself if you're looking for love. One of the cardinal rules of online dating is you post many current pictures of yourself, your WHOLE BODY and you with and without makeup if you're female (I posted 10 pictures including a bikini on vacation pic, dressed up pic, no makeup hiking sweaty gross pic, every day pic, etc) so that you know whoever responds finds YOU as you actually ARE, attractive.

Kristyn is big. Big whoop. Some guy isn't going to care. SOME guy will find that very smoking hot and won't give a damn about the glass eye and will think she's the best thing ever. But here's the thing... will HE be good looking enough for her? Or does she want someone who also has an arm candy appeal? She misrepresented because she is as superficial as Mike is.

 

The catfishes do not give themself a chance. They assume the world is very, very superficial (and we all are to a degree, but again.. beauty is in the eye of the beholder) and they steal a picture of someone that has Mass Appeal and who likely is VERY conventionally attractive and who also looks not a thing like them. This will attract a certain breed of catfishee, specifically those that really, really care about physical appearance in their mate. So the catfish is basically sabotaging themself from the get-go, they are dooming themself to failure.

 

What is the point of the online connection? Is it to get attention every day without having to ever meet (i.e: keep yourself "safe" and get the ego boost)?  I don't think the catfish really ever want to meet. I think they don't even necessarily want the relationship sometimes. I think they want to be able to SAY they have a significant other, show off the picture, get cute notes and flowers, etc but never have to delve into the real deep and scary parts of a relationship.

I think most of this is immature people who don't like how they look desperately wanting to get their ego inflated from a distance, they want to be "the hot guy" or "the hot chick" for once in their life. So they use someone else's picture. It has to be sad though, someone saying how beautiful you are when you likely don't look a thing like that. How much more do the catfish damage themselves and their self-perception by doing it?

I totally agree with this.  I read that Salon article and that's basically what it said.  Sure people are superficial but IMO and in my experience, the real issue isn't that you can't find someone, it's mainly that you can't find the person you want and/or fantasize about being with.  

 

I have a friend with a salad of health problems, yet she has a nice and kind husband, however she's a lot more educated and has more degrees than he does, she's white collar, he's blue collar.  A lot of folks, including me, thought, "hell no, you're downgrading yourself girl."  But she wasn't.  The man didn't have the money or the career, but he was kind and he's stuck with her throughout all her health concerns.  While myself as well as many of my friends who have good jobs, complain about not being able to meet anybody.  

 

I'm not saying that a person should go out and marry a homeless person who doesn't bathe and has no teeth, but there's a huge gap between CEO and vagrant.  There's a huge gap between hot, model type and hideous looking person.

Agree. There is no discussion of this point by Nev and Max. It isn't low self esteem that was her problem, it was unrealistically high self esteem. I wonder how many overweight men her fake persona shunned. And, although I can imagine having a bad day/week/even month and wanting to escape into a fake online persona for a brief time, there has to come that point when you are getting those undeserved compliments where you just feel scummy and the fake profile becomes counter productive.

I don't know... something about his attitude just came off really badly, moreso than any other "victim" on this show.

She was honest about everything but her last name and being fat, so there was no big web of lies he could point to.

 

Her taking the eye out was cool. When the subject first came up I was thinking "ask her to take her eye out!!", but I never thought they would actually ask.

I'm not sure it was such a good idea for somebody besides her to be handling it. I don't know why Nev thought that a fake eye would look different in a photo. The lighting wasn't extreme enough to make the pupil in a real eye unusually large or small, and there was no "red eye".

 

I've worked at various colleges for almost twenty years. There is no way that school released confirmation that she attended there without her having given permission to do that. Current and former students have to sign an enrollment verification request form and specifically list who the school can release that info to.

I used to work for a university that had you fill out a non-disclosure request instead. It was easier for all concerned that way.

People find people. You don't NEED to misrepresent yourself if you're looking for love.

 

 

Well said. I know so many people with quirks and handicaps who have mates. My cousin has burn scars all over her arms and chest from a house fire and dates very often. She has an online profile on a dating site and is very upfront about her scars in her profile description and in her pictures. There are no surprises when she goes out on dates as a result and she has met some pretty cool guys who honestly didn't care about her disfigurements.

 

Krysten didn't have to misrepresent herself. She decided to. Plenty of people with handicaps are able to find love just like plenty of overweight individuals are able to find love. Ironically, Krysten was just as superficial as Mike. If he's going to get called out, she needs to be, too. I wonder how quick she'd be to forgive if Mike was not who he said he was.

 

I am guessing Krysten signed a form that allowed the school to disclose whether or not she was attending to callers. I remember having to fill that out in college and I refused.

To me, the most embarrassing thing by far was that he told her "Prince Mike" and "Princess Krystin" stories about their "Castle". Dude is 25-26. Just no. That is cheesy on a Velveeta level.

Hahaha! So true. When she brought that up, I was like, "dude..." I wanted her to keep on telling more of these stories.

Yep, I think Krysten wanted the hot guy  -- even if she didn't REALLY have him. I'm sure a ton of guys would have been interested. She was cute and fun. But they might have been heavy and/or had some disability like she did. I'm sure her imaginary new guy is a real dream (literally).

Damn, BlueSapphires, I could not have said it better myself. Glad to know I'm not the only one who doesn't feel bad for these people.

I think I have a different take on this. I thought Mike got mad at the lying about the name and then just stayed mad. He was done before he even saw her because she had lied. Period. And then she turns out to be overweight and really sweet and sympathetic but he was still mad because she lied. I thought he was one of the most consistent catfishees. He was done when he knew she lied. I don't think it would have mattered who walked out the trailer (although he might have looked twice at Heidi Klum) because all he saw was a liar....and then...didn't he say that they had exchanged naked photos? So whose body was she sending and how did she get the photos?
