On tonight’s episode of Catfish: The TV Show, Chelsea will get the help of Nev Schulman and Tallulah Willis with the hopes of learning who she has been talking to. Chelsea believes she’s talking to a man named Lennie Aleman, a man who has previously starred on a reality show.
You can catch a preview of the episode below.

When Nev and Tallulah start digging, they manage to contact a friend of Lennie, who claims that the Facebook page that Chelsea has been using to communicate with Lennie is actually run by one or more individuals. In addition, Lennie seemed to distance himself from that fan page after leaving the television world behind.
At the end of the preview, it doesn’t look promising for Chelsea.

But who is this Lennie Aleman, that is the focus of tonight’s episode? Well, he’s an artist and he shares his work on Instagram rather often under the name, @magicscienceland. He has a website with the same name, where he shares his art, comics, and sells his prints.
He also dated My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore a few years ago. According to an IB Times report, Whitney suspected Lennie of cheating on her.
On My Big Fat Fabulous Life, which airs on TLC, she drove past his house and he wasn’t home at 3:00 am. She later asked him if he was lying to her, but this wasn’t what eventually broke them up.
She also had a pregnancy scare with Lennie. Back in 2017, Whitney opened up about having three positive pregnancy tests at home. The two were not dating at the time, according to People Magazine.
Now, the question is – could this really be Lennie?
The friend, who called Nev in the preview, claims that the Facebook page that Chelsea has been talking to isn’t run by Lennie himself. But would MTV really give away the ending or is there a chance that she’s really talking to Aleman? Tune in tonight to find out the answer.
Catfish: The TV Show airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on MTV.
