On 'Catfish,' Miranda, Cameryn, & James Will Bring the Most Confusing Love Triangle Yet
Strap in, guys: We're getting ready for this week's new episode of Catfish , "Miranda & Cameryn," and we have a feeling it's not going to wrap up quite as nicely as last week's episode did with Solana and Elijah. Once again, someone's ignoring every glaring red flag that's popped up in their relationship, all in the name of love — but really, who hasn't been guilty of that? This time around, it's Miranda's turn, and she's part of the weirdest love triangle we've ever heard of. It's Miranda, James, and Cameryn, except James and Cameryn are the same person. Confused yet? I'll try to explain.
It all started back when Miranda, a 21-year-old from Minnesota, fell in love with a guy named Cameryn who she (obviously) met online. I can't blame her — after Catfish showed his photos, I almost fell in love with him. Damn, he's cute. But as most cute internet boyfriends tend to be, at least on this show, Cameryn wasn't the real deal, and he proceeded to lead Miranda on.
Then, as they always do, the excuses started happening just as Miranda and Cameryn got close enough that she wanted to meet him: A family emergency here, a broken down car there, and, of course, Catfish's classic "My webcam is broken." How many times do Nev and Max have to tell you guys? Skype. It. Out. Seriously. If they won't Skype, move on. But matters of the heart are not always solved by Skype, and if they were, we wouldn't have such an awesome show. Watch the preview for Wednesday's new episode below.
So when photos of Cameryn that popped up on Facebook were tagged as a different guy, the jig was finally up. Eventually, his lies caught up with him, and Cameryn confessed the truth to Miranda. He's actually a guy named James from Atlanta, not Cameryn from Santa Monica. Awkward.
And at first, Miranda wasn't willing to accept him back into her life, until her mom's Chron's Disease got worse and she needed someone to talk to. Since James supposedly has a sister with leukemia, he understood her and explained the whole Cameryn thing by saying he was just looking for a way to escape reality by pretending he was someone else. But I'm not buying it, and from the looks of that preview, neither are Nev and Max.
So now, the question is this: Is James actually who he says he is, or is he lying again? Miranda wants to get serious about their relationship, but she has to meet him in person to be able to trust him again— though if she asked me, I would tell her she should've stopped trusting him a long time ago. Oh, and when Miranda, Nev, and Max go to meet up with James, Miranda gets an apology text from some girl — what's going on here?!
The best part about this episode? In the sneak peek, Nev and Max have already warned us that they're going to get really mad if James is lying again, and because of that, I hope he is. Nothing has been as amazing as how sassy those two have gotten this season. Please throw his phone into the ocean, Nev. Please.
