How This Man Went From Catfish To Godfather - MTV
Jan 20, After five years of talking to Matt, Kim is ready to meet up with her online love. and drugs, but hey, other than that she is a really great person. . They both applied together on the Catfish website, they took the story knowing. Kim's struggle with anxiety is not something to joke about. Lots of people deal with anxiety and mental health issues and they need our support. #catfish. Jan 17, Cat·∙fish [kat-fish] noun — a person who pretends to be someone they're not, They twisted everything so the story would be more interesting. .. I thought it was funny that in the beginning of he “Kim & Matt” episode they.
Wow, it looks like they really hooked her up with the furniture. Anyway Kim says after her mom died her dad disappeared and she started getting into drugs and alcohol in high school. None of this is true. They painted the walls the ubiquitous grey that all the shows use these days.
The floors in this house are gorgeous! That said, the neighborhood looks nice but this may be a guest house behind the property itself. The Ridiculously Simple Internet Investigation Into Matt The very basic Google and social media search that the average third grader could do takes place this week at a really cute pink diner. Kim is only 20 and Matt is 21?
I do not believe that she is looking at colleges either since she said she was taking drugs and drinking throughout high school and went to juvenile hall. The writers really screwed the pooch on this script.
Then again, you have to be really fucking stoopid or way into the staging of the houses to watch this mess. As the story goes, Matt and his brother did leave Florida for about five months when their mother went to Sacramento to be a travel nurse.
This is all been marvelously easy. They even have a photo. How long has it been since she was on drugs? She never mentioned getting clean. This girl got a shit ton of really cool furniture. Kim just keeps crying with her hair covering her face and taking breaks. They are filming a scene in the bathroom with her randomly crying on the floor and it is pristine. New trendy grey bathmat.

Or the deal was he gets the plane ticket to California. NOW it makes sense why she got a shit ton of furniture and staging. They had a bigger budget because they only had to stage one property.
She gets a fancy house makeover, he gets a free trip to California. We have funds left over for driveway furniture! His brother just got out of surgery.
He just started a new job…etc. No kind of job. Since Nev got married and has a kid, the only way his wife is letting him do this show is if she gets to be on the show. I kind of enjoy it. He says they need to hear it from her. Joseph probably got his thousand dollars for the show too. Where did Joseph get the shiny white car? Wherever it came from, he took the kid and left in it.
Now we have a complete set of wooden lawn furniture in the driveway. This has got to be rented. Kim admits it was her who bailed when Matt lived there a couple years ago because she went into labor. 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.
Will Catfish Prove Kim And Matt Haven't Wasted Five Years On Each Other? | hockey-jerseys.us
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? I'm just now finding out about her! Max also makes Kim admit that she'd skipped one of their planned in-person meetings due to labour.
And then I guess because he figures things can't get any worse, Max suggests that Kim tell Matt how she feels about him.
She feels awkward about doing so in front of the entire Catfish crew, so Matt points to a bench nearby and heads over there with Kim, and then has to sit there as she not only fails to make eye contact but hides inside her fucking hair again to say that she "can't say [she] didn't fall in love" with him.
Which I guess is her typically weird way of saying she DID fall in love with him -- but, you know, she's the worst. Matt says nothing for a while, and when she finally uncovers her face, he tells her he's "at a complete loss for words.
Because it seems like if he'd really been envisioning the possibility that she'd move to Florida, he'd be way more angry about the Norma news, whereas to me this reads more like blank confusion that she's built a whole imaginary future around yet without him, you know? Kim abruptly says that "this" is "pointless" and heads back toward Max and Nev, with the flummoxed Matt following.
Kim then goes right past them, saying she just wants to look at the water, and when it seems like Max and Nev are each going to take one of these star-crossed sexters aside, Kim asks if she can go for a run, and then Left alone, Max -- evidently also stunned by the complete wacko whose cause the show has taken up -- loses fluency: He needs to sleep on it. Sleep for a few days, my dude. The Post-Confrontation Confrontation For some reason, Matt does not immediately head from the park to the airport, so he's around for Max and Nev to pick up the next day and bring back to the Airbnb for Couch Time with Kim.
Before they can even get to the Couch, though, Kim comes in hot, meeting the trio at the car with Norma in her arms. Might as well go for it, I guess. It seems as though Matt knew he'd be meeting Norma, though, since he's brought a gift for her. This is as good a place as any to say that not liking kids and not wanting kids are not the same thing. Lots of perfectly nice people don't want kids but enjoy spending time with other people's -- which I know because I am one of them.
Based on Matt's admittedly somewhat reserved friendliness, I think it's probable that Kim decided he didn't like kids even though he didn't actually ever say that.
The gift, by the way, is a stuffed bunny and Norma is very good at receiving gifts. Everyone goes inside Norma joining Kim on the Couch, though Kim says her dad will probably come pick her up soon. Nev indicates Norma, quietly enjoying a sippy cup, and witness-leads Matt, "What do you think? Nev guesses that Matt doesn't spend much time with kids, which he confirms he does not.
