They even say they talked to six of the stars of this season  and they all said that in every instance except one, the catfisher — the person who’s lying — was the first one to contact MTV, not the person being catfished, as the show makes it seem.

So that whole part where he finds a random person in his email who wants to find out if their internet lover is real, is staged.

They also say that the eventual meetups at the end of the show, are agreed upon before production even starts, it’s not a spur of the moment decision.

And to think we thought reality TV was actually real!
