Season 4 of MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show returns July 8 and today the first official trailer for Season 4b hit the interwebs! As you might expect, the second half of the season looks to have all of the jaw-dropping, head shaking moments fans have come to expect to see, including a “50-year-old pervert” and…murder?
On Wednesday, Catfish‘s Kidd Cole was arrested in for making a number of terroristic threats involving “bomb threats and/or hostage situations.” Revisit his Catfish story and find out what charges he faces.
It was first revealed last July that Catfish co-host Max Joseph would be fulfilling his dream of directing a feature-length motion picture, and our excitement grew when it was announced in August that the film, titled We Are Your Friends, would star Zac Efron as well as Gone Girl star (and “Blurred Lines” music video beauty) Emily Ratajkowski!
Dee Pimpin, a catfish who impersonated Bow Wow, but still has quite a bit of game herself, was one of the most talked about episodes in the history of the show. Tonight, the boys of Catfish caught up with Dee, and she’s continued to lead quite an exciting life. TOO exciting!
Catfish co-host Nev Schulman is putting the “hair” in chairity (sorry) as he is offering up a snip of his famous chest hair as part of a fundraising campaign for Leave Out Violence (LOVE).

On tonight’s episode of Catfish we have the first instance of a mother sending in an application on behalf of her child as Aurora explains her son Steven is in a serious online relationship with a girl he’s never met named Samm. But, Samm is claiming that she was the one that actually applied to be on the show and that after producers saw her photos they decided she would be the better catfish!
Catfish co-host Max Joseph has always been an adamant supporter of the LGBT community and proponent of LGBT rights, but he is angered that people’s attention is on Bruce Jenner coming out as transgender in the wake of the earthquake in Nepal that has claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people, as well as the protests in Baltimore and “another black life snuffed out at the hands of the police.”
Catfish host Nev Schulman responded at length to negative comments he received after posting a photo of himself with a dolphin in captivity at Dolphin Quest, including all the great work that Dolphin Quest does to “responsibly educate people about Dolphins as well as study them,” as well as how much he has personally done to further the cause of marine mammal conservation/protection organizations. “I can’t stand all the people who felt it was their place to tell me how wrong I was to swim with dolphins in captivity but have probably never done anything to actually make a difference about it,” an uncharacteristically riled up Nev wrote. “Seeing the cove and posting a comment on my wall about it doesn’t make you a hero.” Keep reading for Nev’s full response!
