Will Catfish Prove Kim And Matt Haven't Wasted Five Years On Each Other? Matt and Kim planned two in-person meetings when they both lived in .. that term as if I hadn't already % turned against her a long time ago. Birds · Cats · Dogs · Fish · Pet Lifestyle Their story goes like this: Matt (Johnson) and Kim (Schifino) met while they were students They started dating. . M: Yeah, not to get all serious but as much as our business—meaning, our band— is. Remember the old days, when Catfish hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph weren't so cynical and the couples they helped meet each other.
You guys are engaged? No, not proposed like marriage-proposed. After a year of looking, we were hanging out in LA and went over to my friend's place, which is a great house in Silver Lake. So I peeked at some real estate—it's so much more affordable than it is here.
I was like, "Kim, we should move to LA. And I said, "Hell no, thank you! You weren't serious, were you Matt? I was kind of serious. I think it was a desperate feeling. Yeah, not to get all serious but We don't see our families or friends a whole lot. We hadn't found a place, we were stuck living in the place we're in now and things just seemed to be getting worse than they'd been in the past six years….
But luckily, we've had a good year.
Is it ready to move into, or are you going to do any major work first? We're moving the kitchen from the downstairs to the upstairs, so that's a big job. It's a fully gut-renovated building, so it's a good slate to start with. The dream is not to have a practice space anymore and just be able to have a room set up in our apartment.
So we're talking about soundproofing….
Catfish: Kim & Matt
Are you bringing any of the furniture you have or buying all new stuff? We have some finds—like a couple of old '50s tables and some cool, old chairs—but we're definitely looking forward to getting new things. We'd always see things we wanted and not be able to get them because we cannot fit another thing into our [current] apartment. We live in less than square feet now, and the new place is around 2, or 3, We're at the point where we're thinking about what's going to go where, and every day I'm going to the store to buy another home magazine….
I'd definitely like to get rid of all our [low-end] furniture. I think that's another grown-up step. Is there anything you've seen that you can't wait to get? There are a lot of great stores around [Williamsburg].
But I also know that in Vermont, the used furniture market is a lot less expensive.

We want to take a road trip with a box truck and see what we can find. We want a giant kitchen table, one of those really big tables with a thick wooden top. Yeah, my brother and I did our homework at our kitchen table every day. We didn't go to our rooms. So the table's one thing.
And we need a bed frame. We definitely need a really good couch. I want either two couches or a sectional because we're always competing and trying to fit when we lie down. And I always get the bad end of the deal. He just takes up the most amount of space. It's a very "old country" feel.
The first time I went to Matt's parents' house, I loved it. It's a Vermont-style house that just has this nice homey feel with, like, clapboards on the bottom and… What do you call that? You're not going to be able to explain this! I don't know, we like things that feel…like [exposed] beams and chipped paint… We like the old personality of places rather than super-new, super-clean. It has to have a feeling of history or whatnot…. We're going to coin that. I don't think we can coin that because I think it exists.
Do you like to decorate with personal stuff or buy made art for the walls? We're definitely buying a lot more art now. In art school, we'd trade pieces, so we started building our collection that way. Now we're buying stuff. I'm really into buying stuff at galleries. He doesn't like to go to museums because he can't buy the stuff. Like, they show it to you but you can't buy it? What are you most looking forward to about the new place? Well, it's just so gross in the building we live in now.
Tell her what I saw in the hallway M: Kim looked through the peephole one time and thought she saw someone pissing in the hallway.
But no, it wasn't that. It was two people having sex right outside of our [apartment] door. We were just about to leave and head out on tour and There's this drug dealer who goes up to our roof. And I like to play detective and write down every time I see him going up to the roof. I don't know what I'm going to do with this information, but I like to keep it just in case….
And so all of a sudden, I heard someone in the stairwell and I was like, "He's there again! And I was like, "Ohhhhh, they're having sex in the hallway! As many things as you can catch from sex—especially from someone you might have sex with in a hallway—you can catch way worse things just from that hallway.
I just saw his ass.

It's a sight I cannot get out of my mind. A sight you can't unsee.
That is pretty gross…. You must be looking forward to having friends and family over to your nice, new place. Anyway, they now have a new theory about why he's been cagey with Kim, which is that "he's dating online," and indeed, I'm not aware of other reasons people have profiles on internet dating platforms. Then they get a call from Crystal, one of Matt's Facebook friends. While she doesn't recall Matt ever talking about his friend Kim in California, she does confirm that she met him a few years ago; thinks he's been "on and off" with a woman in Kissimmee, where he appears to live; and remembers him living in Sacramento for a while.
She suggests that they talk to Matt's brother Nick, who lived with him, and texts them his phone number. Way to be mindful of Nick's privacy, Crystal. She doesn't just text a phone number, though; she also provides a photo of herself that features Matt's entire face. This Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas-ass-looking try-hard. He's never heard of Kim either, but unlike Crystal, he doesn't know of any other current entanglements either. However, he thinks it's out of character for Matt to be "dating" Kim and not trying hard to meet up with her.
Thanks for providing that promo-ready clip, Nick! The Presentation Of Findings Kim demonstrates zero recognition of Matt's Twitter feed, so, as usual, her lack of curiosity is a crucial factor in her current predicament. Here's her reaction to her first glimpse at Matt's weird degree-rotated sunglasses pic from Plenty Of Fish. After rocking back and forth for twenty minutes, Kim finally manages, "I'm not sure if I should even make a comment. Nev is basically like, I don't know how to deal with you when you retreat into your hair palace, but she doesn't want to tell him and steps out of the room.
He finally follows Kim out to the yard, where she's sitting in a hammock with her head on her knees. Evidence Of Airbnb The First, btw. Kim says she suddenly started feeling "warm" and "overwhelmed" -- in a good way: Uh, maybe wait until you've seen all the evidence before you have a joy meltdown, Kim.
She gets herself back up and returns to the computer, and when they tell her what Crystal told them about Matt's maybe-girlfriend, she doesn't look any different than when she was "overwhelmed" with happiness after her first glimpse of Matt. And when they tell her that NICK said he DOESN'T think Matt has a girlfriend, she just shakes her head and hides in her hair again, and this is what makes her cry; before long, she's up and out of the room again.
This time, Nev finds her on the bathroom floor, where she mumbles, "If he's real, why is he hiding? When Kim's recovered what passes for her composure, she states that she does still want to meet Matt, but that she's scared of flying, "so unless there's a different way to get there Nev then calls Matt, and guess what. Matt pleads "brother just got out of surgery" and "I just got a new job," while inside, Max comments to Kim that he can't figure out why Matt isn't sending photos or trying to meet Kim: Outside, Nev sweetens his offer of imposing on Matt a meeting with the woman he's been avoiding for five years by adding that if Matt wants it to happen, he's going to have to be the one to travel.
Somewhere around here is when Nev checks in with Mrs. Nev, who's even more useless than usual. Also, we briefly see Nev's mother, who I'm pretty sure is my age. The Pre-Confrontation The next day, Nev and Max call Kim to let her know they're on their way to the Airbnb to wait with her for Matt's flight to land, and she's all, sounds great, see you soon, in a very chirpy voice that doesn't betray that anything's amiss, which is why they're surprised when they arrive to see an apparently unfamiliar car in the driveway and a male butt getting out.
But it's not Matt: Kim called him the night before in a panic, because there were "some things" she hadn't told Max and Nev; Kim needs to tell them herself, but she asked Joe to be there to support her.
It may be the case that Kim fell in love or whatever with Matt while she was still dating Joe in meatspace, but she apparently wasn't so devoted that she didn't This is Norma, and Kim's never told Matt about her because he had previously made it known that he doesn't like or want to have kids. In that case, Max would like to know what Joe thinks about Matt, his daughter's potential stepfather.
I mean, I imagine he probably doesn't think Matt IS his daughter's potential stepfather, given his stated views on the matter? Before Joe can answer that, though, Nev jumps in to guess that Joe probably doesn't want Kim to move to Florida with their child, and Joe agrees that he doesn't. I'll give her some benefit of the doubt and guess that this stupid smile is an involuntary reaction to her embarrassment and not an indication that she thinks this gap in her reports to Joe is cute, but that doesn't excuse the fact that this is the kind of decision you KIND OF have to run by your child's co-parent before you start giving it serious consideration.
Max recaps leave it to the professionals"Just add that to the list: Joe takes Norma from her arms so that Kim can have her big summit with Matt and the crew. I'm at least glad that Joe and Kim are no longer together because she clearly doesn't deserve him.
Nev, Kim, and Max sit down so that she can tell them the rest of the shit she conveniently skipped the day before. Evidence Of Airbnb The Second: Anyway, Kim says that although she was "talking to him" while pregnant, she "didn't get big until the very end," and though the obvious next question is what sorts of photos was she sending him at that time if this is a salient detail, no one asks.
The Ridiculously Simple Internet Investigation Into Matt The very basic Google and social media search that the average third grader could do takes place this week at a really cute pink diner.
Kim is only 20 and Matt is 21? I do not believe that she is looking at colleges either since she said she was taking drugs and drinking throughout high school and went to juvenile hall.
The writers really screwed the pooch on this script. Then again, you have to be really fucking stoopid or way into the staging of the houses to watch this mess. As the story goes, Matt and his brother did leave Florida for about five months when their mother went to Sacramento to be a travel nurse.
This is all been marvelously easy. They even have a photo. How long has it been since she was on drugs? She never mentioned getting clean. This girl got a shit ton of really cool furniture.
Kim just keeps crying with her hair covering her face and taking breaks. They are filming a scene in the bathroom with her randomly crying on the floor and it is pristine. New trendy grey bathmat.

Or the deal was he gets the plane ticket to California. NOW it makes sense why she got a shit ton of furniture and staging. They had a bigger budget because they only had to stage one property. She gets a fancy house makeover, he gets a free trip to California. We have funds left over for driveway furniture! His brother just got out of surgery.
He just started a new job…etc. No kind of job. Since Nev got married and has a kid, the only way his wife is letting him do this show is if she gets to be on the show. I kind of enjoy it. He says they need to hear it from her. Joseph probably got his thousand dollars for the show too. Where did Joseph get the shiny white car? Wherever it came from, he took the kid and left in it.
