Catfish: The TV Show is an American reality-based documentary television series airing on MTV about the truths and lies of online dating. The series is based on the 2010 film Catfish and is co-hosted by Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. It premiered on November 12, 2012. The fifth season premiered on February 24, 2016. Season 6 will premiere on March 1, 2017.
The show presents the “hopeful” as the one who initiates contact with Schulman and Joseph in an attempt to discover the true identity of their online romance, or the “catfish”. Some of the show’s casting calls do solicit stories from hopefuls, and casting director Michael Esposito explained in August 2015 that the show can receive more than a hundred applications a day.
However, a 2013 Hollywood.com report explained that despite the broadcast show being structured as a search by the hopeful for true identity of the catfish, it is usually the catfish who make the first contact with MTV. Producers then proceed to gather information about the deception from the catfish and contact the hopeful afterwards. For legal reasons, all persons involved on the series sign contracts agreeing to appear on camera prior to the episode even entering production. In Season 3’s Miranda and Camryn episode, the catfish did change their mind about meeting the hopeful, and only appeared via Skype.
The hosts are given no information about the catfish, and while the catfish has already agreed to appear on the show, they do not know when or how the hosts will be looking for them.
Nev Schulman explained more about the reverse-engineering in an August 2014 interview:
“A lot of the stories that we get come from the catfish side of things. People who feel so terrible […] that they’ve been lying to a friend or a lover on the internet for a long time. They want to come clean, but they fear if they simply told the truth, the other person would […] be very upset that they’ve been lied to and deceived, and likely discard them. And so they’re hopeful that by coming on the show […] maybe we can facilitate some kind of amicable exchange, that they can be heard, explain themselves in a more objective and non-judgmental way. So [the producers] orchestrate very delicately, and staying out of it as much as possible, a scenario by which […] the hopeful reaches out to me […]. And so [Max and I] just pick up from there. [The hopeful has] no idea of course that the other person’s already expressed interest in meeting. And the [catfish] doesn’t know that we’re actually doing it. They just sorta think maybe it could happen. So they don’t know when or why or how. So it’s tricky, but everything is real. The feelings are real, the relationships are real. We haven’t created any scenarios, we don’t tell people what to say or do. It’s very unpredictable”.
A new UK edition is being cast through online ads that do specifically target the catfish, not the hopeful: “Tired of keeping secrets from your online love? Come clean” and “Are you a secret Catfish? It’s time to come clean”.
The film Catfish was criticized and its authenticity questioned. Executive producer Tom Forman stresses that the TV version won’t just tell “stories of deception. We’ve also stumbled into some love stories. We found people who are exactly who they say they are. We are putting those on television, too. We find people who are willing to get past an initial deception and really do make a connection at the end — in person and in real life. That’s been really heartwarming. So I think, when we set out, we really don’t know how it’s going to end: good, bad, or in the middle somewhere”.
