    It was Joshua in a wig. They never proved it wasn’t. When they whole family was introduced Joshua wasnt there because he was being Elijah, Catfish Catfished Everyone

    P.S. I was chatting with my sister about this ep of Catfish and she also thought Elijah was Joshua in a wig lmao..

    I love that so many people thought the same foolish thing independent of one another.

    Aw man I was GUTTED it wasn’t the brother in a wig, I had to rewind and look pretty closely. I’m guessing the producers told Elijah not to answer the door for more suspense. I’m quite glad it wasn’t the brother the long run though as he looks quite a bit older and if they started talking when Solana was 14 that would be creepy as.

    Also, I’m probably not the best person to ask as it’s taken me 9 years of a relationship to get married (still not done yet – 2 months to go!) but how do you go from ‘I don’t know what I want to do with my life’ to getting a permanent mark for one guy drawn on your body and then making a life long commitment to another… In 2 months?! Just hella impulsive or dependancy issues? I wish her the best she seems very sweet but married at 18 to a bloke you weren’t sure of 2 months earlier seems a little silly…

    Elijah is the definition of “fallback”.

    I agree with all of the above. I was thinking the brother would walk in with an emo wig. I guess there are people on the net that are honest.

    This was one of the creepy episodes. Elijah seemed kind of weird or slow. I couldn’t put my finger on it. The tattoo thing was to much for me personally and her husband is very understanding. I’m not so sure I would have done the same thing.

    I don’t think I would marry a man who traveled to meet a possible crush and got matching tattoos.

    I am so so glad I wasn’t the only one who thought Josh just threw a wig on. I was ready for some serious Norman Bates level crazy and then I realized it’s not a wig, just ridiculous hair that everyone seems really impressed with for some reason. It’s not that great, guys. My dad has hair that is the color and texture of steel wool and he wears it in a crazy poofy ponytail, nobody’s stealing his pictures.

    LOL yesss I definitely thought Elijah was just Joshua in a wig and a change of clothes. I was actually hoping it was him because that would be the best ending to catfish ever. Slightly disappointed to discover that Elijah and Joshua were in fact brothers and everything checked out.

    But even Elijah came off a little creepy to me. It could just be that he’s shy and doesn’t get to meet alot of girls, but he just seemed strange. Like how long has he been plotting out that tattoo idea? He just sprung it on her mad smooth, with the imagery and symbolism planned out and everything, so I know it wasn’t spur of the moment for him. And didn’t he also ask if she had to go back to the hotel at the end of the night?

    Nev and Max are starting to jump at shadows. When they tried to glom onto the idea that Elijah was Denise, all I could do is roll my eyes. Denise is like 33. She has like 10 something years on Solana.
    I’m sure that if Solana was talking to a woman 10+ years older than her, even at the age of 13 or whenever she met Elijah on myspace, she’d freaking notice
    Max is still cute but Nev’s stupidity is starting to infect his brain. 🙁

    Arse. That’s what I get for posting before caffeine.

    Alas, he just had developmentally disabled hair, all flailing everywhere, and helplessly stuck in 2002.

    I don’t think she’s keeping Elijah as some kind of fall-back, he’s just someone who has helped her through some difficult times, and is her best friend. It’s not like getting married means no more [gender you’re attracted to] friends. That tattoo though? Jebus, I wouldn’t even do that with my fucking wife, let alone my former MySpace crush.

    I totally thought that the guy coming up the stairs was his brother with a bad wig on. When he talked about going to get him I actually thought given Elijah’s worry that Solana would be disappointed, that he might be a wheelchair user. I totally expected him to roll out from one of the doors in the living room, because a lot of us gimps use lifts. Basements in the US seem to be pretty roomy, so it made sense to me that he might live down there. Alas, he just had developmentally disabled, all flailing everywhere, and helplessly stuck in 2002.

    I watched this recorded and I rewound and rewatched a few times because I thought it was Josh. I also thought everyone was going to have to rub the lotion on their skin.

    When Elijah came up the stairs I actually yelled to my husband “That’s that Josh guy in a wig!” partly because they did look a little alike and partly because I so wanted it to be true.
