Did anyone feel like Kim was freaking weird : CatfishTheTVShow
The latest Tweets from Matt Lowe (@FattUnit). Featured on MTV's Catfish. Forgot to share this defining moment in my life last Saturday for my nephew. Real Couple: Matt & Kim: Movin' and Groovin' - THE COUPLE BEHIND THE Birds · Cats · Dogs · Fish · Pet Lifestyle They started dating. . M: Yeah, not to get all serious but as much as our business—meaning, our band—is doing much. Before we get into how and why Matt accepted Kim's request, a look back at their tale: The two began speaking five years ago on a dating app.
Yeah, not to get all serious but We don't see our families or friends a whole lot. We hadn't found a place, we were stuck living in the place we're in now and things just seemed to be getting worse than they'd been in the past six years…. But luckily, we've had a good year. Is it ready to move into, or are you going to do any major work first? We're moving the kitchen from the downstairs to the upstairs, so that's a big job.
It's a fully gut-renovated building, so it's a good slate to start with. The dream is not to have a practice space anymore and just be able to have a room set up in our apartment.
Catfish: Kim & Matt
So we're talking about soundproofing…. Are you bringing any of the furniture you have or buying all new stuff? We have some finds—like a couple of old '50s tables and some cool, old chairs—but we're definitely looking forward to getting new things.
We'd always see things we wanted and not be able to get them because we cannot fit another thing into our [current] apartment. We live in less than square feet now, and the new place is around 2, or 3, We're at the point where we're thinking about what's going to go where, and every day I'm going to the store to buy another home magazine…. I'd definitely like to get rid of all our [low-end] furniture. I think that's another grown-up step.
Is there anything you've seen that you can't wait to get? There are a lot of great stores around [Williamsburg]. But I also know that in Vermont, the used furniture market is a lot less expensive. We want to take a road trip with a box truck and see what we can find. We want a giant kitchen table, one of those really big tables with a thick wooden top. Yeah, my brother and I did our homework at our kitchen table every day.
We didn't go to our rooms. So the table's one thing. And we need a bed frame. We definitely need a really good couch. I want either two couches or a sectional because we're always competing and trying to fit when we lie down. And I always get the bad end of the deal.
He just takes up the most amount of space. It's a very "old country" feel. The first time I went to Matt's parents' house, I loved it. It's a Vermont-style house that just has this nice homey feel with, like, clapboards on the bottom and… What do you call that? You're not going to be able to explain this! I don't know, we like things that feel…like [exposed] beams and chipped paint… We like the old personality of places rather than super-new, super-clean.
It has to have a feeling of history or whatnot…. We're going to coin that. I don't think we can coin that because I think it exists.
Do you like to decorate with personal stuff or buy made art for the walls? We're definitely buying a lot more art now. In art school, we'd trade pieces, so we started building our collection that way. Now we're buying stuff. I'm really into buying stuff at galleries. He doesn't like to go to museums because he can't buy the stuff. Like, they show it to you but you can't buy it? What are you most looking forward to about the new place?
Well, it's just so gross in the building we live in now. Tell her what I saw in the hallway M: Kim looked through the peephole one time and thought she saw someone pissing in the hallway. But no, it wasn't that. It was two people having sex right outside of our [apartment] door. We were just about to leave and head out on tour and There's this drug dealer who goes up to our roof. And I like to play detective and write down every time I see him going up to the roof.
I don't know what I'm going to do with this information, but I like to keep it just in case…. And so all of a sudden, I heard someone in the stairwell and I was like, "He's there again! And I was like, "Ohhhhh, they're having sex in the hallway! As many things as you can catch from sex—especially from someone you might have sex with in a hallway—you can catch way worse things just from that hallway.
I just saw his ass. It's a sight I cannot get out of my mind. A sight you can't unsee. That is pretty gross…. You must be looking forward to having friends and family over to your nice, new place. Our families are very excited about this. Right now, we can't have anyone over because you can't move in the [small space]. So…parties at our new house! We go out every night on the road, so when we come home that's not what we want to do. The idea of being able to have people over and just hang out is really nice.
Do you get to see your families a lot since they're up in New England? We're super-close to our families. If we play in Boston, there are 20 of my family members on the guest list. They come out in full force.Who Is Matt? - Catfish: The TV Show
And when they tell her that NICK said he DOESN'T think Matt has a girlfriend, she just shakes her head and hides in her hair again, and this is what makes her cry; before long, she's up and out of the room again.
This time, Nev finds her on the bathroom floor, where she mumbles, "If he's real, why is he hiding? When Kim's recovered what passes for her composure, she states that she does still want to meet Matt, but that she's scared of flying, "so unless there's a different way to get there Nev then calls Matt, and guess what.
Matt pleads "brother just got out of surgery" and "I just got a new job," while inside, Max comments to Kim that he can't figure out why Matt isn't sending photos or trying to meet Kim: Outside, Nev sweetens his offer of imposing on Matt a meeting with the woman he's been avoiding for five years by adding that if Matt wants it to happen, he's going to have to be the one to travel.
Somewhere around here is when Nev checks in with Mrs. Nev, who's even more useless than usual. Also, we briefly see Nev's mother, who I'm pretty sure is my age. The Pre-Confrontation The next day, Nev and Max call Kim to let her know they're on their way to the Airbnb to wait with her for Matt's flight to land, and she's all, sounds great, see you soon, in a very chirpy voice that doesn't betray that anything's amiss, which is why they're surprised when they arrive to see an apparently unfamiliar car in the driveway and a male butt getting out.
But it's not Matt: Kim called him the night before in a panic, because there were "some things" she hadn't told Max and Nev; Kim needs to tell them herself, but she asked Joe to be there to support her.
It may be the case that Kim fell in love or whatever with Matt while she was still dating Joe in meatspace, but she apparently wasn't so devoted that she didn't This is Norma, and Kim's never told Matt about her because he had previously made it known that he doesn't like or want to have kids.
In that case, Max would like to know what Joe thinks about Matt, his daughter's potential stepfather. I mean, I imagine he probably doesn't think Matt IS his daughter's potential stepfather, given his stated views on the matter?
Before Joe can answer that, though, Nev jumps in to guess that Joe probably doesn't want Kim to move to Florida with their child, and Joe agrees that he doesn't. I'll give her some benefit of the doubt and guess that this stupid smile is an involuntary reaction to her embarrassment and not an indication that she thinks this gap in her reports to Joe is cute, but that doesn't excuse the fact that this is the kind of decision you KIND OF have to run by your child's co-parent before you start giving it serious consideration.
Max recaps leave it to the professionals"Just add that to the list: Joe takes Norma from her arms so that Kim can have her big summit with Matt and the crew. I'm at least glad that Joe and Kim are no longer together because she clearly doesn't deserve him. Nev, Kim, and Max sit down so that she can tell them the rest of the shit she conveniently skipped the day before.
Evidence Of Airbnb The Second: Anyway, Kim says that although she was "talking to him" while pregnant, she "didn't get big until the very end," and though the obvious next question is what sorts of photos was she sending him at that time if this is a salient detail, no one asks. She goes on to say that one of their scheduled meetings was scuttled not by Matt but by Kim -- or, rather, by Norma, because Kim went into labour.
Max reiterates that Matt is on the record as not wanting kids, so does Kim think he could be a good father to Norma? She should know -- and if she doesn't have at least as much doubt as we all now do, she is really being reckless about her child's happiness. And yet here she is in the car on the way to meet Matt. I really hate Kim, you guys. The Confrontation In a park, where nothing good ever happens Matt turns out to be Matt, and Kim is psyched but still extremely awkward.
She can barely look at him as she talks, and Matt kind of looks like he regrets everything he's done to keep a relationship with this freak going as long as he has. Kim is too flustered to continue, so Nev asks why Matt never sent just one little video to let Kim know he was legit. Matt calls himself "a secretive person, for the most part" -- a response of which Nev and Max seem suspicious.
But Max says that the bigger question is whether Matt cares for Kim; he says he does. Plus she hasn't even told him about Norma yet, so that's already more than she deserves anyway. He reminds her of times they were there for one another in times of bereavement. Kim then seems to realize the conversation has come to the point where she has to come clean about her motherhood and asks if she can take off for a second, but Max and Nev refuse to play along, and Matt cracks, "The hysterics are nice.
What he actually says: Kim takes years to say she has a daughter who's almost two, and apparently this is something Kim has gotten very good at concealing, because Matt doesn't seem like he's had the slightest suspicion about Norma's existence. He says nothing, which for some reason emboldens Kim to barrel forward: Also, does she know that "godfather" and "stepfather" are not the same thing? Also, this child is almost two and doesn't already have a godfather?
Kim is a horrible actress. When we get there, I see no large body of water! Matt is hiding in a shady grove, so that is almost as creepy I suppose. Kim is weird as hell. She has her hands between her legs like she is going to pee herself. She is tripping in the most literal sense of the word, in my opinion.
She keeps crouching down like she is peeing her pants. This is the fakest shit Catfish has ever done, and that is saying a lot. Then she says she has a two-year old, and asks him if he would like to be her godfather? There is the body of water. I knew it had to be there somewhere. She professes her undying love for him at a picnic table by a large body of water. Then she says this is all pointless and wants to go for a run by the river in jeans. Nev and Max are left with Matt now.
Because nothing says responsible decision making like an admitted drug addict picking a random guy she met off the Internet to be the godfather of her child. And talk to me about this baby daddy, Joseph again because this makes no sense.
So the godfather from Florida brings a stuffed animal for his possible god-daughter. Once inside, there is a new red chair for Max. Joe comes to rescue the baby. Matt says he is not in a place for a relationships as his leg bobs up an down.
Kim is doing the hair thing again.
Catfish: Kim & Matt
He is okay with helping her out with her kid and being her godfather. He just wants to be friends. At the two month checking Kim says she is taking online classes. So that is good. Okay, well maybe… but there are other occupations. You can be just fine as a blogger for example. Your mother died when you were in high school, your father supposedly left you, you were in juvenile hall so you probably have a GED if you are lucky and you think you are taking online classes to be a surgeon?
