Then, during his mostly-incomprehensible (to me) tirade against Artis, Justin threw out some kind of insult, calling Artis his "chocolate kiss." Come on, to me, all of that seemed staged and scripted.
The business with the dog? "No, he's not mine. Forget about him." Ridiculous.
My antennae actually went up at the beginning of the show, when Nev and Max were so shocked -- shocked, I tell ya!, that Artis already had a live-in. They just didnt even want to take on this case, their sensibilities were so offended! Right. Once they start filming those hotel scenes, with the pleading emails, the story is well in motion. Who do they think they were kidding with the crisis of conscience? The entire premise of the show is that people lie to each other!
I'm hoping some net sleuth finds Justin's bio somewhere. In fact, even Artis was a bit suspect to me. This episode was just embarrassing.
Meanwhile, I finally caught the Jen/Bryan (aka Skylar) fiasco. She was 17! And her parents allowed her to fly to SF, for this show? To be humiliated? I don't get it. Jen was a very pretty, soft-spoken girl, with a sweet nature. I wish her happiness. But, Bryan? Once again, I was left with nagging doubts about these stories in season 2 of Catfish. Bryan, like Justin, seemed more a character in a play than a real person to me.
Would love to know what's really going on with behind-the-scenes production manipulation with Catfish these days. Season 1 seemed loopily genuine to me; but not so much, season 2.
