Matt and Kim‘s “Catfish” story was a fan favorite of Season 1. The two had been communicating online for an entire decade before they met face-to-face, and except for one or two details, neither had lied about their identities. Unfortunately, one point of contention for Kim was Matt’s weight — not that he was heavyset, but that he’d led her to believe he was much thinner. On last night’s reunion, though, Matt shocked the crowd when he walked onstage TWO-HUNDRED POUNDS LIGHTER.
Bravo, Matt. That takes some serious dedication.
“I still got a lot of work to do, but I’m very excited about it,” he told host SuChin Pak before sharing that he still speaks regularly with Kim. Both of them are now in romantic relationships with other people, but there doesn’t appear to be any jealousy. Or hard feelings. Kim made sure to set the record straight on why she decided against pursuing something more than friendship with her longtime virtual flame, saying that Matt’s white lie about his weight was the ultimate deal-breaker, but luckily, it didn’t stop them from remaining pals. Don’t you just love a happy ending?
