Catfish: The TV Show – Jesse and Brian – Recap
It’s another week and another episode of MTV’s Catfish. This week, we’re heading to Pennsylvania to meet Jesse. Jesse is a real life Barbie doll. She’s skinny, blonde, and gorgeous. And totally in love with a Marine named Brian. Here we go again.
Catfish Jesse and Brian Recap:
Jesse is so in love with Brian that she’s ready to move to Alabama to be with him and get married. Brian is intriguing. His Facebook seems more legit than previous Catfishers. He’s got more pictures than the usual suspects too. Even more interesting, Jesse and Brian have a mutual friend named Fran. Fran was in the Marines with Brian and even lived with him at some point.
Allegedly. I am suspicious of you, Fran. And not just because your name is Fran.
Jesse wants answers now. She drove all the way to North Carolina to meet up with Brian, only to have him stand her up. He claims he got in trouble with the police at the time. Not a good sign.
The guys begin their search on what seems to be a legit identity. His real identity may be the problem
The guys discover his real name is Robert Brian Clark and he did time in Juvie. They find a mugshot that matches up to the date Jesse was meant to meet up with him. The charge?
Possession of a weapon of mass destruction.
Um. WHAT. Girl, it’s time to pull the plug. One of his eyes is even rolling at the situation. Warning bells galore.
Was he bringing a weapon to meet her??
The guys decide meeting Fran is the next step. Fran tells them Brian was his platoon sergeant and participated in rescue missions and stuff. He also reveals that Brian was married once before and has his own brain injuries and PTSD. Out of everything we have learned about Brian, Nev says him being married is the most surprising part. Not, ya know, the weapon of mass destruction or anything. The marriage.
The guys must already know ahead of time that Brian is safe because they quickly arrange for the two to meet. How is Jesse on her laptop right now? She’s sitting on a couch with Max. Isn’t he more captivating than anything you could be Googling?

She says she “can’t wait” and I had no problem thinking that she said she couldn’t read. Oops.
While a little bit skeavy, Brian appears to be who he says he is. “You like it?” Ew. What is he even referring to?
Brian explains his arrest occurred when he became disoriented at a gas station. He later discovered he was having a PTSD episode and someone called the cops on him. The cops discovered a broken down shot gun in his trunk and in the state he was in, that’s considered a weapon of mass destruction.
