I'm not obsessed with the actual creepy looking fish with whiskers.
I don't even eat fish.
Blech.

People, I'm obsessed with MTV's show, Catfish!
OBSESSED.
Airs Mondays At 11/10c

It's no secret that I like myself some trashy reality TV.
Just click on the tag at the top and you'll see what I'm talking about.
But this new show is a mix of reality meets feel good meets train wreck!
Ok, so mainly train wreck.
I can't lie to you people.

How do young people who've embraced the digital age find love? Often, it's by connecting online with people they've never met in person. These days, messaging on iPhones has replaced the dinner date, and emailing through social media sites often substitutes for face-to-face conversations. The problem with this approach - the guy or girl you've fallen for could be lying about who they really are. 

Now, from the producers of the acclaimed documentary film, Catfish, comes a new MTV series that brings together couples who've interacted solely through their LCD screens. Over the course of months or years - these romantics have become smitten - but what will happen when they meet in real life for the first time? 

In each episode, with the guidance and help of the star of the Catfish movie, Nev Schulman, and his filmmaking pal, Max Joseph, a hopeful romantic partner will go on an emotional journey to discover the truth about their significant other. Has that object of affection been telling the truth? Will true love truly blossom? When that fateful knock on the front door finally comes - only one thing is certain - that these incredible voyages will be filled with mystery, uncertainty, forgiveness, joy, and sometimes, even shocking revelations. 

cat·fish [kat-fish] verb 
To pretend to be someone you're not online by posting false information, such as someone else's pictures, on social media sites usually with the intention of getting someone to fall in love with you.

Sometimes the dude ends up being a woman.
Sometimes the stripper isn't really a stripper.
Sometimes they still stay in touch.
Sometimes it ends in heartache.
Every time it's a good time.

WATCH IT!
There have only been five episodes so far.
