'Catfish': Who is Stephanie? South Carolina man Bryn is in love with a woman he's never seen or texted
'Catfish' returned to MTV two weeks ago with the remaining episodes of Season 8. On May 25, the show which has turned into a cultural phenomenon, is going to air its most interesting and unique episode by far that fans have been waiting for with bated breath.
The episode is about a 23-year-old South Carolina man Bryn who has been talking to a Latina named Stephanie, a traveling nurse, for a full year. During all this time, there hasn't been a single moment where he has been able to text with her. Bryn hasn't even seen her and they don't FaceTime either. But the man has already said "I love you" to Stephanie, the woman who he has access to only when she makes a phone call to him from a blocked number which she claims is her work phone.
Who is Stephanie on 'Catfish'?
Stephanie and Bryn hit it off instantly and the latter confessed he was talking to her while in a relationship with his ex-girlfriend. The two broke off six months after he first began talking to Stephanie and while it hasn't been determined if she was the reason for the breakup, all signs point to her being the reason behind Bryn's broken relationship.
Bryn told 'Catfish' hosts Nev Schulman and Kamie Crawford that Stephanie and he also connected over their family issues. Bryn is in love with her to the point that he has to drop everything when she calls him because that is the only time he gets with her, and he readily does what needs to be done in order to have that connection with this woman who he hasn't even seen once.
Is Isaax pretending to be Stephanie?
Bryn tells Nev and Kamie about this person named Isaax who he follows on social media because of the positive content that this person shares. Isaax was the one who told Bryn that he needed to meet his friend Stephanie, saying he believed they were a perfect match and sent him her pictures.
Bryn asked Isaax to pass on his number to Stephanie who he thought was extremely cute and the rest is history. Nev and Kamie speculated that Isaax could be Stephanie but Bryn said that wasn't the possibility because he had heard his voice before, but he's never seen or met him. Could Isaax be the one who is talking to Bryn as Stephanie? We will find out when the episode premieres.
'Catfish' airs Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on MTV.
