For instance, when she was 15 she was six months pregnant and the baby’s father was taking Xanax and smoking weed. Geez, so he must have been asleep a lot and not very helpful. Anyway, the baby was too small and did not survive. That’s awful. And a month after that happened she met Triggs. Okay. I’m not going to minimize what this girl has gone through if all that is true. What I can’t figure out is how, after having gone through something that serious, she can get herself so worked up over nonsense like getting revenge on Jasmine. Or maybe that’s all she CAN do. It’s really sad because it’s SUCH a waste of time and energy, and I’m sure it’s done nothing in the way of helping her to deal with her loss. Max actually asks her what she has now that she’s gotten her revenge. She laughs and says she has a smile on her face. Nev says he would hate for Mhissy to have to live with the regret of things she’s done in anger. BUT he’s glad to have met her and gotten to know her a bit, and now they’ve got to be on their way.
Max and Nev drive away talking about how smart and mature Mhissy is. WHAT? Is it opposite day? I think that they were pleasantly surprised to find out that Mhissy didn’t come across as a completely callous, mean-spirited belligerent person – she actually seemed to have a soul. But that does NOT make her smart OR mature. Uh… NO. Anyway, Nev reports back to Jasmine that Mhissy did not have good intentions, but he hopes that Jasmine has learned something here. Jasmine says she certainly has. No more online friends. Nev tells her that she’s a lot of fun and a great mom and if she can leave this behind her there are great things ahead. I’m not so sure about all that, but whatever.
We check in with our participants two months later and learn that Jasmine has put her search for romance on hold in favor of school and spending more time with her son. Sure. Mhissy has decided to legally adopt her niece and stop creating fake profiles on Facebook. I love how every week these people have completely reformed their entire lives since Nev popped in on them with his camera. It’s a lovely story. And that’s it. What? I wanted to meet the man behind the picture! I like when they hunt down the person whose identity has been borrowed to create these fantasy relationships. No such luck this time. Maybe the guy didn’t want to participate, which I would understand. This episode was VERY low rent.
