'Catfish': Will Dianela come face-to-face with her Venezuelan boyfriend Jose whom she never met before?
'Catfish' is back to television with a new episode that will air in an hour from now. Fans were deeply disappointed as the show went on a week's break to make way for pandemic special episodes of 'South Park' that aired last week on MTV. However, 'Catfish' is back to its regular schedule and a brand new episode featuring the story of Dianela and Jose is about to air on the popular youth network.
Dianela met Jose during a nail-biting session of videogame and they hit it off almost immediately. They never met each other and didn't ever hop on a video call but kept in touch via texts and phone calls. Jose was Dianela's safe space when her mother passed away unexpectedly. His support meant too much for Dianela who admitted to him that she had started to fall in love with him. Both of them were from Venezuela but harbored dreams to move to the USA as things in their home country weren't as safe. Jose was the first to immigrate, and when Dianela moved with her father, she reached out to Jose expressing that she'd like to meet him. However, she was met with instant rejection from Jose's end as he said that he's not interested in her.
This was not the first time he backtracked on his promise about meeting her. Back in Venezuela too, they were located at a 10-hour car drive away from each other. Dianela said that they had plans of meeting each other in their home country as well and that he'd gone rogue at the last minute. She told 'Catfish' hosts Nev Schulman and Kamie Crawford that as the day of their meeting got close, Jose started acting weird towards her and when she asked why he was doing so, he said that he needed to come clean to her about something and then admitted to having a girlfriend.
It was pretty clear that Dianela had looked past being stood up last time and given Jose another chance, however, she was once again met with rejection. She moved on with her life after that but two months down the line, Jose reappeared and started to leave her texts, saying that he misses her and thinks about her all the time. She was too entangled with her immigration process at that point to pay any heed to him but things settled down after a while after which Dianela realized her feelings for him still existed. However, she wanted Nev and Kamie to investigate a little and figure out if Jose was authentic and there wasn't any foul play from his end. She wanted to pursue a romance with him but wanted to first ensure that she wasn't headed for another heartbreak via the man that she'd never met before but loved dearly.
Will Nev and Kamie be able to help Dianela find the answers that she is seeking? Find out by tuning into 'Catfish' at 8 pm ET on MTV.
