MTV’s new reality series Catfish is getting a great deal of exposure thanks to Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o's headline-grabbing relationship with girlfriend (aka a “catfish”) Lennay Kekua, who later turned out to be a hoax perpetrated by Ronaiah Tuiasosopo and his cousin Tino Tuiasosopo. The popular show (which has already been renewed for a second season) was also the focus of a Saturday Night Live skit last night in which The Voice‘s Adam Levine played Catfish host Nev Schulman in a hilarious spoof!
In the wake of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o's incredulous story, MTV’s Catfish is getting some serious exposure. Find out what co-creators Nev Schulman and Max Joseph had to say about the explosive new interest in “catfishing” and how all of this could result in a serious ratings spike for the already well-received show.
Most fans who fell in love with Catfish the movie were a little bit wary when it was announced MTV would be taking the concept and turning it into weekly show. (It could be said we didn’t want to be too optimistic about the show until we met it in person, in case it turned out to be a catfish itself!) Well, the series is six episodes in and I don’t know about you, but I know about me and the other 2+ million folks who are tuning in each week — we’re addicted! Of course, MTV is well aware that viewers have taken to the show, and they announced earlier this week they will be bringing back Yaniv “Nev” Schulman and Max Joseph for a Catfish Season 2!
In 2010 Catfish, a documentary film called by Nev Schulman, became all the rage because of it’s skillful presentation of Nev’s journey to find the woman he thought he had fallen in love with on Facebook. Not only was he excited to see this woman, Megan, who he had feelings for, but he’d gotten to know a lot about her family, especially Megan’s younger sister Abbey, who is a painting prodigy.
Now there’s an MTV show based on the same principle, but what does “Catfish” mean? What is the origina of the term?
