Catfish Star Michael Fortunato Dies at 26 — Girlfriend Ashley Sawyer Reacts

The universe of MTV's online-dating show Catfish just became a little smaller. The network reports the sad news that Michael Fortunato — who was featured on the Season 2 episode "Ashley and Mike" — died on Saturday, October 12, in Hartford, Connecticut. The office of the local medical examiner told MTV that Mike suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blockage in one of the arteries of one's lungs. His online love connection, Ashley Sawyer, told MTV that Mike was "the most honest, loyal person I'd... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/YjAqUGuyV3w/2013-10-15-catfish-michael-fortunato-dies-26

Catfish Sneak Peek: Woman Thinks She's in a Relationship With Bow Wow!

Catfish host Nev Schulman didn't get a wink of sleep last night because he was "too excited" for tonight's all-new episode, which features a woman who thinks she's in a relationship with Bow Wow. Yeah, the famous rapper and host of BET's 106 and Park. That guy. We know what you're thinking, and yeah, it does seems pretty ridiculous. In fact, Nev and Max can hardly contain their laughter when they read Keyonnah's email — but just hear us out. This story actually seems pretty legit.

Catfish's Lauren Meler and Derek Shullenbarger "Move On" After Miscarriage

Lauren Meler — whose relationship with boyfriend Derek Shullenbarger became one of the few success stories from MTV's Catfish — suffered a great loss on September 24: She had a miscarriage after 10 weeks of pregnancy. She matter-of-factly tweeted the sad news on September 29, adding, "Now that the secret's out, let's move on." Luckily, however, the two have a brighter future to look forward to: Lauren routinely tweets about marrying Derek, a rare instance of an online suitor uncovered by... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/edYY0_J-q2Y/2013-09-30-lauren-meler-derek-shullenbarger-miscarriage

'Catfish': Nev Nearly Gets Hit By The Crusading Catfisher

Still, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph did some digging on Artis' behalf into this "Jess" person. They quickly found her photo on porn sites. Knowing something was up, they set up a meet. But when they got there, it was "Jess" who immediately got aggressive. So much so that Nev almost got hit during the confrontation. "Jess" turned out to be Justin and he immediately tried to take control of the meeting, shushing Nev. "I'm going to be the one wearing the pants in this sh*t,” he said.   Read More... //www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/26/catfish-the-tv-show-nev-almost-hit-video_n_3815212.html?utm_hp_ref=tv

'Catfish: The TV Show': Sometimes Honesty Isn't Enough

There are good and decent and honest people in the world. Even more shocking, there are good and decent and honest people in the world of " Catfish: The TV Show !" Jesse had been in an online relationship with a guy named Brian for about three years. Despite the fact that he refused to video chat with her -- and the one time they were going to meet, Brian said he got in trouble with the police -- Jesse was still planning to marry him and move in with him. Of course, all of this threw up some major red flags, so the "Catfish" team came in to investigate. It turns out, Brian's story checked out. He was who he claimed to be, and he did get arrested for having a sawed-off rifle. The gun is classified as a "weapon of mass destruction" in North Carolina. Luckily for Brian, he was never charged with a crime. Once the couple did finally meet, it looked like happily ever after was just around the corner. "[I] just want to be with you, just want to be happy," Jesse told Brian as they embraced. "I’m just glad you’re here and I do want to give this a shot," Brian said. The couple exchanged declarations of love and shared a kiss. It was all probably quite shocking for Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, who are used to uncomfortable encounters and confrontations about deception. What was shocking, though, came next. Jesse admitted to Nev and Max that she and Brian slept together after that first meeting. And, in fact, that seemed the catalyst for everything to fall apart. After filming ended, Jesse visited Brian for two days and things did not go well. She decided they weren't meant for one another after all, and they haven't spoken since. Writing for MTV's Remote Control, Kristina Lucarelli wondered if the couple moved too quickly. "It got us thinking... maybe there's some merit to the three-date rule ?" she wrote. "Had the two not done the deed so early on, perhaps that final element of mystery would have given them something to look forward to. Or maybe they just weren't right for each other, and sex had nothing to do with it." Even when things are what they seem, they may still be too good to be true.

The Most Honest 'Catfish' Yet

Kristen told Mike she'd been in a bad car accident and lost her left eye. Because of this, she was too self-conscious to meet him. After some digging, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph revealed that "Kristen" had actually been pretty honest with Mike. Almost everything she told him was real, including the accident. What was't real were the pictures she showed him, and the spelling of her name. She simply swapped the "y" in Kristyn with an "e" to create "Kristen." “I was really at a low point and I needed a mask," Kristyn told Mike when they finally met. She'd created the fake profile after her accident. "I was that girl sitting there about to take her life. And you were the only one that stopped it," she said. "The only one.” Kristyn thanked Mike for saving her life, and it really meant something to him that he'd been able to help her when her friends weren't even there for her. But he admitted he had no interest in pursuing a relationship with the real Kristyn. The two do still talk, though, and consider each other friends.

'Catfish': Dorion Juggles Two Girls, One Real And One Fake

It turned out, as one might have expected, that Jeszica wasn't who she claimed to be. Instead, it was a normal-looking, pretty girl named Alexis. She also happened to have the dubious honor of having the "most faked profiles" on the Internet. She said that she made the profile Dorion connected with five years ago, back when she "was young." She'd even given Jeszica a fake child. "That was just my way of meeting new people, and talking to people," she explained. "We ran into each other, and I just couldn't stop that."

The Return Of 'Catfish'

LOS ANGELES — Max Joseph, co-host of MTV's "Catfish: The TV Show," says he has Manti Te'o to thank for catapulting his series into the national spotlight. "Manti Te'o got catfished. It happens. We see it happen every week," Joseph said. "I mean it was amazing for the show, not so amazing for Manti Te'o." The term, which refers to someone using a fake identity to seduce another person online, gained momentum as the title of a 2010 documentary on the topic. It has since become mainstream lingo and was used in a story line on Fox's "Glee" after the former Notre Dame linebacker's fake girlfriend episode.
