MTV's Catfish, a show dedicated to publicly exposing people for getting played via online dating, announced an upcoming trip to Cleveland:
This hit series premiered after the success of the 2010 documentary Catfish, which followed the story of Nev Schulman and his intimate relationship with a woman whom he had never met in person. Upon in-depth investigation, Schulman discovers the woman he is conversing with is fabricated, and his love story was a lie.
Next stop: Cleveland, OH! 📍 #Catfish— Catfish (@CatfishMTV) August 17, 2017
Now, Schulman and his co-star Max Joseph travel around the country responding to similar cries for help, people who are infatuated with someone else via computer screen.
The hosts arrange for the lovebirds to meet, which either ends in shocking disappointment or overwhelming relief.
Clevelanders had mixed reactions regarding the alleged arrival of the Catfish cast. Some are not eager to roll out the welcome mat...
Others are hoping for a visit...
