Catfish returned with yet another virtual season on May 4, 2021. Kamie Crawford joined Nev Schulman over a Zoom call to help a man named Tyler to find out if there was any foul play involved in the relationship he had built and continued nurturing from the past two years with a woman named Stefany Dunngar. 

He had tried by all means to get Dunngar on a FaceTime call or Zoom call but all efforts were shot down with excuses from her end. Tyler even offered to fly to her hometown in Largo, Florida but every time Dunngar told him to drop the plan because her parents were sick and needed surgery. To ensure he wasn't being played with, he sought Schulman and Crawford's help and his worst nightmares came true when he found the woman he was talking to was nothing like the photos she had sent him.

Who is Tyler?

A coffee shop worker by profession, 26-year-old Tyler dabbled into creating porn videos for making extra income. He started off making amateur home videos and uploading them on Pornhub but he soon found success and started doing it professionally. Not only did he make money from the platform but he also found Dunngar with whom he fell in love and shared the minutest details of his life over two years of talking. 

Tyler was head over heels in love but there was a thought at the back of his head about all of it being a lie. His doubts started to crop up after Dunngar continuously made excuses for not meeting him. They used to talk on the phone for hours and Tyler mentioned he loved every conversation he had with Dunngar but he just wanted to be sure that he wasn't being lied to.

Who is Stefany Dunngar?

Tyler shared all the pictures of Dunngar and her phone number with Schulman and Crawford. In their investigation of who this person was, the hosts found that there was a 35-year-old woman named Stefany Dunngar living in Florida. However, the sexy photos she had sent Tyler existed on a lot of porn sites, some dating back to 2014 and this meant they didn't belong to her or that she was sending them to multiple men. 

Tyler was crestfallen about this discovery but he still had hope because the information he had about Dunngar matched the information Schulman and Crawford found during the investigation. There was just one thing left to do and that was to get Dunngar on a video chat.  Schulman texted her, but Dunngar shot down his request saying she didn't have the means to get on a video call. Schulman sent her a phone overnight after Dunngar agreed to video call using the new phone.

Stefany Dunggar looked nothing like the photos

Dunngar finally agreed to come on the video chat after Tyler threatened to end things with her after she declined to do the call for the show. She was nothing like the photos and it broke Tyler's heart. He said looks didn't matter to him but the fact that Dunngar lied to him for two straight years had hurt him beyond repair. 

Tyler told Dunngar that he would need time to think if he'd like to keep in touch with her. Dunngar understood this was the price she had to pay for her lies and agreed to give Tyler the space he needed. Unfortunately, Tyler couldn't continue talking to Dunngar because the lies bothered him, an update at the end of the show revealed.
