But Florida-based "Kelsey" is unwilling to meet John in person because of … her "body dysmorphic disorder," according to People. Though John works in IT, he refuses to do any cyber-sleuthing of his own, out of respect and love for "Kelsey. Before kicking the investigation into high gear, Max tells Nev: Plus, Kelsey refuses to call or video-chat with any other members of the chat room.
This includes Ellie, a psych chat room dweller who now considers Kelsey a friend. The final confrontation introduces us to nefarious internet rogue Adam pictured right, who glibly refers to himself as "King of the Catfishes. Thad, 'Sara,' and all the drama Hulu Thad pictured left wasn't the first guy to be burned by Phony Sara.

These little white lies prompted Thad to investigate Sara, and he discovered someone named Ashley has stolen Real Sara's photos. For quite some time, Ashley's been using those photos to deceive men. This Ashley person reportedly continued using Sara's photos after the filmed confrontation. Still… that's almost moving, right? Our introduction to Zac begins when a single mother of two approaches Max and Nev with deep suspicions about her online paramour, "Lucas. That's when Urszula enters the picture.
Urszula reaches out to Jayme because she'd also been flirting with "Lucas" online and came to learn he's a dirty little liar.

He assures everyone he's "deleted" the photos, but there they are actually saved on his phone. As the disgusted crew leaves the premises, Zac pulls a deeply insincere: This Cincinnati resident only craved love, but he'd never landed a real relationship.
His cousin Carmen contacted Nev and Max, sharing her concerns that Antwane was being conned by "Tony. Tony remained tight-lipped on personal details. He wouldn't even share a personal photo with Antwane, yet Tony assured the smitten fellow that he was very tall and quite muscular.
That seemed to be enough for Antwane. For much of the episode, it looks like Antwane's virtual lover is an incarcerated convict.Catfish The TV Show: Artis and Jess S2/Ep09 Recap
This turns out to be less of a catfish, and more of a red herring. After Max, Nev, Carmen, and Antwane visit three locations, they're still no closer to the truth. Carmen causes the Earth to spin off its axis by sharing a shocking revelation: She flirts on the phone with Antwane in her deep, sexy "Tony voice.
Antwane once teased Carmen about her weight in front of the whole family. After all, Cassie's been in a downward spiral ever since the murder of her father in Still, one shining beacon of hope peeked out from all this darkness: Artis and Jess have never talked on the phone or Skyped; he has her phone number, but they've only used it to text.
The Excuses Jess has a really jealous, controlling boyfriend Artis actually keeps using the word "strict," which is creepywho prevents her from doing things like put more than one photo of herself on her Facebook profile. She has a fair number of Facebook friends from Marengo High School, which she claims to have attended. However, despite all this talk of a controlling boyfriend, her relationship status is "Single," and after one status in which she'd asked if anyone wants to "hang or bang," one of her contacts comments that he doesn't believe she's real.
Nev reaches out to this guy, Kevin, who calls them right back and explains that Marengo is a tiny town where everyone knows each other. At some point, this Jess went on a friending tear through his class, but that no one who accepted her friend request in Marengo and subsequently got hit on by her actually knows who she is. Google Image search, you say?
Well, they find matching results on a bunch of porn sites, including one that's topless. They also find the full-length version of her one-and-only cropped Facebook photo.

There's some Facebook back and forth where Jess makes Max and Nev prove who they are. When they finally tell Jess that Artis is serious enough about her to have told his real girlfriend about Jess, that changes everything, and now Jess wants to meet in person, at a park in Woodstock the next day.
This very weird guy emerges from a beat-up car and does a slow clap as he walks toward Artis. He's also really aggressive toward Nev, who tries to get between the guy and Artis despite Nev's having just broken his foot days ago. The guy complains that Nev was giving him attitude the previous night over Facebook, but keeps getting in Artis's face until Artis finally walks away.
