Catfish: The TV Show – Ramon and Paola – Recap and Full Video
Get ready guys! It’s another week of our favorite reality show Catfish. This week, we explore the story and experiences of Ramon and Paola. Ramon has, as Max puts it, already seen the face behind the mask. The problem is, he doesn’t know who, or what, is real.
Ramon is one of the rare cases who have actually gotten their catfisher on to a video chat, only to see a completely different person. Paola has also claimed she’s lying about who she is, only to say after both of these things that she’s testing his love for her.
Paola claims the person on the video chat was her cousin and surprise surprise, said cousin is heavier than the gorgeous girl Ramon has fallen in love with. Much to Nev’s and Max’s shock, Ramon confesses he has sent Paola gifts and thousands of dollars. He has even gone as far as to give her his bank information.
Let the search begin.
Their search starts off rocky when they attempt to search for Paola’s pictures on Google and come up with nothing. They take the username from Paola’s Instagram and it takes them to a new, more legit Facebook account for a different Paola with the same pictures.
They manage to video chat with this Paola and she’s either very nervous to be talking to the handsome duo or she’s just not thrilled her identity has been stolen. She gives them the soundbite they’re looking for and claims her life is her own and she has never spoken with Ramon.
At this point, I’m really hoping that the reveal won’t be the chubby cousin. Too predictable.
Ramon is pissed and upset he’s been used and lied to and still wants to meet this person face to face.
The Meet Up
The gang travels to confront the girl who claims there’s more to the story. They head to Florida to end the mystery once and for all.
Surprise, surprise. It’s the chubby fake cousin all along. Kind of a snooze. But Ramon’s face of disgust is pretty priceless.
She claims she did everything out of boredom and Ramon tells her to give him all the gifts back. LOL. Go Ramon! Get your money.
The girl, Loyda, claims he knew all along and Ramon admits that this is true and Max literally goes “Hey man, What the hell??” LOL. Nev and Max are rather confused and Max actually puts the camera down out of frustration.
Was this a colossal waste of time? They don’t look happy.
Nev checks out Loyda’s real Facebook page and they discover a picture of an engagement ring that she claimed Ramon sent to her. The gang returns to her house to meet with her and her family and discover Loyda’s mom knew about it all along.
Nev’s epic eye roll is glorious.
Nev and Max call out the entire family for being liars and Nev puts the smackdown on Loyda for taking Ramon’s money to buy and mail herself a ring. It results in a lovely shouting match.
Despite all the crazy, Ramon agrees to spend some time with Loyda to see if there’s any normalcy underneath. Ramon tells her there won’t be a relationship but he’d like to keep her as a friend.
Two months later and Ramon has facial hair. He’s attending college and still works in the casino. Him and Loyda don’t talk any more and Loyda apparently has a boyfriend now. Loyda has been paying Ramon back all the money he sent her. Max can’t help himself and lets slip one last bit of snark. “Guess you don’t have to buy yourself rings anymore.”
