MTV 'Catfish' is airing its most positive episode in a while on Tuesday, June 1. The episode has all the makings of what one would regularly see on the show. A person approaching hosts Nev Schulman and Kamie Crawford with answers regarding their online romance and its legitimacy; most of the time these things end badly. The elusive lover on the Internet doesn't look like the photo and is of the opposite gender than the personality projected on Instagram. But the episode featuring April and Daryl is completely going to change almost everything - in a good way.

The recent episode features Apryl, an OnlyFans model who has been talking to an artist named Daryl. The two had been chatting on Instagram after he approached her with a sketch of a selfie she had posted. Apryl had never been approached by a man in this way ever before and Daryl immediately had her attention. They had always chatted on Instagram and never on any other medium despite video chat requests by Apryl. This coupled with some other reasons led her to believe there could be something fishy going on with Daryl and she just wanted to be clear about where she was heading with him. This is one of the reasons she approached Schulman and Crawford

Is Daryl a fraud on 'Catfish'? 

Daryl, an Ohio-based artist and Apryl had a good thing going until the latter received a hello and a link to a sketchy Facebook group in her dm. This came from Daryl's sister Candace's account and it was immediately followed by him telling Apryl to ignore the message. Shortly after, he took down his Instagram account completely and went AWOL on Apryl, leaving her thinking there was something that wasn't right. Schulman and Crawford began to investigate if this man was legitimate and not just Candace posing as him on the Internet. Their doubts were solidified after they sent a dm to Daryl's Instagram account and in turn received a response from Candace and she even answered a zoom call with them on his behalf.

Candace's Instagram account had a couple of posts by Daryl, including a video of him sketching. This confirmed Daryl was indeed a real person but the hosts then thought it could mean that he doesn't know who Apryl is and it's Candace who has been talking to all women posing as him on the Internet. However, it just wasn't the case this time. Candace did have access to Daryl's Instagram but strictly because she handled his work. Daryl indeed was very interested in Apryl and the two of them even got a chance to talk over Zoom, just the two of them talking about their feelings for each other. Daryl opened up about being anxious and insecure about approaching women which were some of the reasons he had been single all of his life.

He didn't have a real relationship ever and wanted Apryl to be his first girlfriend with whom he could achieve all his milestones, including his first kiss ever! In an update at the end of the episode, it was revealed that the two have exchanged numbers and video chat every day. They are now looking forward to the day that the travel restrictions ease out between Canada and the USA so that they could finally meet each other.
