What happened in the Catfish episode?
Jake appeared on the latest episode of the reality show Catfish on MTV that was filmed a year ago, pre-Covid.
In the episode, Jake explains how a girl he met online, named Taylor, would cover her camera whilst they FaceTimed, ghost him repeatedly and even send him money; Jake turned to the Catfish crew for help to figure out who Taylor really was.
It turns out that Taylor’s real name is Amanda, who admitted that she catfished Jake because she was never good at socialising and was bullied in high school. That led her to pay influencers like Jake to talk to her.
However, Jake wasn’t innocent as he took the money she offered him, and Amanda felt that Jake took advantage of her. Jake admitted that he shouldn’t have taken her money and shared on his Instagram stories that this happened a year ago and that he’s a different person now.
