Flashback Friday: Catfish: The TV Show (2010-2018)

The Internet has changed our world as we know it to be. Especially when it comes to romance and dating. Online dating has become a normal way to find love, but the question is if the person we are talking to is real or hiding behind a fake profile?

The MTV reality show Catfish: The TV Show (2010) is based on the concept of catfishing. Catfishing is defined as the fake online persona that someone hides who they really are behind on a social media or online dating website profile. Each episodes, Nev Shulman and Max Joseph are contacted by someone who has fallen for the person they met online. Through various means of research, they either confirm or deny that the person on the other side of the email or messenger chat is real or fake.

Catfish: The TV Show is an interesting show from my perspective. Of course, it’s a reality show that is quite compelling. But, at the same time, it shows that as much as we want to find love, we have to be careful when using the Internet to find love.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
