Catfish: The Tale of Two Girlfriends (Spoiler)

What would you do if you were caught in a Catfish love triangle?

Dorion is a young man who had been having an online relationship with Jeszica Morrison, who is a model and a college student that also has a daughter. Their relationship had been going on for 2 years and of course they never met but have been communicating through Facebook and phone calls. The unique thing about their situation is that Dorion has a girlfriend, Rafinnee. They’ve been together for 7 months.  My question for Rafinnee is how could she allow Dorion to continue to talk to Jeszica knowing he had feelings for her, regardless of how serious his feelings were. It was even her idea for him to go meet Jeszica.  She said that she wanted him to meet her to see who he really wanted to be with. If it were me I wouldn’t send my boyfriend on a trip to meet his online girlfriend to see if our relationship meant more to him. It makes more sense to me that he make the decision without having to meet Jeszica.

While Nev and Max are doing their routine investigation behind Jeszica Morrison, they find out that she has the most faked Myspace profile. One thing that I’ve  never understood about these online relationships is that if anyone has any doubts about the person they have an online relationship with, why can’t they do some investigating themselves? Sorry, but Nev and Max don’t do much; just a simple Google search and Google  image search.  I guess they provided emotional support and/or confidence.  Also, Nev is very good at convincing these catfish to meet up with them.

My problem with Dorion is why did he feel is was completely O.K to develop a relationship with another girl online? I think he should have made the decision early on which girl he wanted to be with. He also said he became homeless twice. So having an online relationship should have been the least of his worries. I understand you may have needed someone to be there for you but that’s what family is for, not someone you don’t know behind a computer.

When it came time for us to meet Jeszica Morrison, it turns out she’s really not a model and her name is Alexis. Being in a relationship is not all about looks but I really feel like it has a lot to do with weather or not these online relationships follow through. Dorion made the decision to stay with Rafinnee, but I can honestly that I don’t think that would have been the case if Alexis was really the model Jeszica that he was fooled into thinking he was with. I think this is the case with almost every Catfish episode. Looks aren’t everything but you can’t lie about who you are AND be unattractive. As far as Alexis is concerned she’s not an ugly girl BUT she’s no Jeszica. I also don’t get how she lied about who she is, what she does, how she looks, and even about having a daughter,  but got made at Dorion for not being completely honest about Rafinnee. Double standard much?
