Catfish: The TV Show returns tonight on MTV with two new episodes for hardcore Catfish fans. While Nev Schulman and Max Joseph have said that the cases get crazier, it sounds like these two episodes are indeed out of this world.
The official Twitter account for the show has leaked a few clips from the two first episodes, and it sounds like the episodes are a bit different this time around compared to previous seasons.
The first episode that airs tonight is the story about Cortney and Kiara. Things start off as they usually do on Catfish – .a person is trying to connect with someone they have talked to online with the chance of them meeting up in person.
This time around, the person who is looking for information is Kiara. She’s desperately trying to meet her online love, Cortney.
The two have been seeing each other online, as Cortney is in the navy. They have never met in person, but they have hired a surrogate so they could have a child together.

This is definitely a new kind of story. While many viewers may have thought that the story would be about Kiara wanting to meet Cortney because she’s crazy in love, she wants to meet Cortney because she feels that Cortney isn’t letting her see her own son.
She claims that she had sent money to the surrogate, but has never even seen a photo of the child! But the child does seem to exist.
When Kiara and Cortney talk on the phone, she has heard a child crying in the background. Since Nev is a father, one can imagine that he understands why Kiara is so heartbroken over the situation.
This is an interesting case for them to solve. Is Cortney trying to trick Kiara with a fake surrogacy scheme or is she telling the truth?
Catfish: The TV Show airs on Thursdays at 9/8c on MTV.
