  • Good observation. Still odd. Maybe it’s his third eye.

    I didn’t watch this episode but in the commercials I thought the tattoo might be to cover a trache(?) surgical scar. Any chance of that? Like I said, I just saw it in passing

    An of a dollar bill symbol!

    I love tattoos.. and men with tattoos, but I draw the line at forearm, neck, face, and hand tattoos.

    Unless the person has a career where that will never matter, I would hate to be with someone so limited in job prospects. Now, neck and fave tattoos are just tacky, no matter what one does for a living. Total dealbreakers.

  • Anthony what in the world were you thinking when you got a tattoo on your throat?

  • Lo

    Not only does Nev have a girlfriend, but Max is also married… to a woman.

  • amberatkins

    Nev was on Jay Leno last night and mentioned his girlfriend several times, sort of intentionally. Maybe trying to gracefully dispel the rumors? lol

    I liked Anthony alot. It says alot about his character that he would reach out to a stranger like that, especially when he himself was dealing with some shit at the time. I do hope that Anthony finds someone…he seems to be a lovely person and sure is a cute little chicken nugget.

    I started to feel sorry for Framel but then I remembered that he let Anthony purchase a round trip airplane ticket only to stand him up for two hours.
    And then to sit in the same restaurant, watching him as he stood him up, and ignoring the flood of texts and calls that came into his phone.
    Cold-blooded, Framel.

    I think I heard that Max is gay, but Nev is straight as far as I know. The picture was also hashtagged bromance, which clearly indicates a platonic friendship between to men that looks kind of gay to everyone else, so I don’t know wtf MTV was doing with that article. If it was supposed to be funny or tongue in cheek, they failed. It was just confusing.
    And if it was serious, they need to fire the intern who wrote it because what the fuck. These are MTV employees, and you can’t shoot off a quick internal email, like “hey guys just to confirm, are ya’ll together or no?” It’s not that hard. They are really cute together though…the stepping on the shoe scene was adorable.

    Nev was kind of hot when he got all stern and was like….now see here Framel enough of your lies and evasion. He should be more authoritative more often. It almost makes you forget about the tramp stamp.

    This was one of those episodes that had me wondering how many things they make the Catfish-ee sign promising not to beat the Catfish to death upon listening to their whiney excuses. Anthony obviously suspected/knew for a while that “Marq” wasn’t being truthful and watching all that pent up rage start to boil over was kind of painful. Here’s hoping Anthony meets a nice fella!

    The Craigslist meetups are saved for the ID Network.

    Well, Tony and Angela and Sam and Diane both did, so…. maybe where there’s smoke there’s fire?

  • Chicken Lips

    Don’t feel bad – I thought it was true when I saw it too. Nev does say he was heartbroken when he found out Megan was really Angela and I thought maybe he was just done with women because a man would never do something like pretend to be someone else online.

    Oh, wait…

    Well, I still thought it was true.

    If Max has a girlfriend, I’ll bet she’s learned to never ask “Does this make me look fat?”

  • NouveauPoor

    Ha I almost did – as proof of their torrid love affair! I totally thought they were playing footsie! Ugh.

  • NouveauPoor

    Keep trying! You’re not the only one who’s having trouble with our new reply function.

  • queensmove

    Myspace is the Internet Explorer of social networking sites.

    (Here is to hoping I did the reply right. Somehow last time I did it ended up as a brand new comment.)

  • Haha!! Myspace was the worst! Catfishin on Myspace didn’t lead people to a chubbylumpkins with a missin’ tooth, it lead them to pedophilia and murder.

    When is a catfish episode going to be about a couple who met on craigslist?

  • You didn’t mention my favorite part NP, when Max steps on Nev’s new shoes. Don’t you hate it when people do that? Yes.

    Next week stupid gives out his bank account info. As PT Barnum said – there is a sucker born every minute.

  • queensmove

    I kind of find it funny that the show is now sponsored by MySpace.

    Maybe the entire show is now a set up of look how awful Facebook is. Come to Myspace no one will hook you into a 2 year sham relationship here.

  • It’s been a running joke that there is a ton of sexual tension between them.. so, I’ve always seen the show as having a b-plot, as in, “will they or won’t they”..much like Tony and Angela or Sam and Diane.

  • NouveauPoor

    OMG I’m SO EMBARRASSED! I didn’t do any extra interwebs searching because the story was on an MTV blog. I thought the “evidence” was spotty at best given that it looks like a fake kiss but since the source was MTV…

  • They’re not really a couple. But i love how everyone on the internet has declared Nev to be gay. I think it’s the tramp stamp. Anyway, Max has a girlfriend (damn!).
