“Catfish” fans relished each shocking moment Season 1 provided, but one of its most popular stories — Matt and Kim‘s — caught on with viewers because it went beyond the drama. The two were completely genuine in their quest for love, and Matt’s popularity skyrocketed when he vowed to increase his quality of life by slimming down. When we saw him on the show’s reunion special this week, it was clear he’d been working very hard to reach his weight loss goals — he’d already lost 200 POUNDS!
Naturally, fans rushed to sing Matt’s praises, and we’ve collected some of the most supportive comments we could find on Remote Control and Facebook. Take a look at the inspiration Matt gave our online community, and tell us if he left you feeling more committed to your own goals!
“Your personality won me over, and I love your endurance to lose the weight. Atta boy! Very handsome!” — Annie D.
“I’m using you as example for my soon-to-be 18-year-old daughter, who is handicapped. I said you can accomplish anything if you want it bad enough. Thank you!” — Chris G.
“Keep doing what you’re doing, Matt, because you’re an inspiration to others that might not be where you are yet.” — Jeanine B.
