MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show season three has been the most explosive and confrontational yet.
In one extreme example, Nev lost his temper and grabbed a catfish’s cell phone and tossed it into the river (he later apologised and production agreed to buy the catfish a new phone).
“For me this season, I definitely made a decision that I was going to be a little more open and forthcoming with my feelings,” Nev admits.
The catfish this season are “acting out of anger or intent to hurt other people,” so whenever Nev felt frustrated, he reacted as the viewers might have.
Nev adds, he doesn’t always feel good about blowing up at people.
“I don’t always feel good about it,” Nev admits, “but I think it’s important that if someone makes you feel a certain way, you should let them know that, so they hopefully understand that what they’re doing is having a negative effect on someone.”
