Admit it: If you were a teenager during the heyday of AOL, you found your way into a chat room or two, and maybe even developed a short-lived online friendship. For Kim, a Michigan ice cream shop manager on the next “Catfish,” the virtual connection she first made at 15 has lasted a decade. And Matt, who she believes could be her soulmate, is still very much a part of her life. So what’s the issue? Well, the former football player has resisted meeting Kim in person throughout their 10 year relationship. Hmmm.
Even though Kim has a living, breathing boyfriend, she tells Max and Nev in this 10-minute sneak of Monday’s first act that if she ever did get together with her virtual counterpart, it’d be game over for all other guys. “Whenever he calls or texts…I drop everything I’m doing,” she says. “If I were to ever meet him in person, I would automatically have a smile because I know he’s going to make me laugh.” But something’s still fishy in cyberspace, and Nev decides to put an investigation in motion. He listens in on a typical phone conversation between the kind-of couple, which amounts to a lot of excuses from Matt as to why they can’t meet or Skype. “Sorry to be disappointing as usual,” he says with a nervous laugh. Foreshadowing?
