Nev and Max are beside themselves eager to find out if this Kari Ann is the real deal. Particularly because of the numerous provocative photos of her they’ve been seeing on her Facebook page. I’ve never seen Nev this flustered.
“I forgot how to Google Image Search. Is it super hot in here? Stop filming me. How do I open Facebook?”
They notice on Kari Ann’s page that she’s friends with a girl named Rose, who Joe told us was in his high school graduating class. There are pictures of Rose at some Playboy centerfold event in Las Vegas so Nev and Max determine that there may, in fact, be a connection here. They call Rose, who says that she’s internet friends with Kari Ann because she wanted to do some modeling projects with her, but they’ve never met in real life. Right, that’s the same way I became friends with Heidi Klum. Just hit her up to see if she’d do some modeling with me. Anyway, next Nev tracks down Kari Ann’s agent and calls him to tell him about the show and see if he knows anything about Kari Ann’s relationship with Joe. The agent is pretty hilarious. Nev, thinking he’s hot crap, explains about his show and the agent is like, “How the heck would I know who she’s chatting with online?” HA! Apparently he wasn’t too interested in getting Kari Ann an appearance on Catfish. Sorry Nev. They also messaged some guy named Kyle who is one of Kari Ann’s friends and he calls them to tell them that he knows Kari Ann and the number Joe has for her is her real phone number. He also mentions that he’s hooked up with Kari Ann a couple of times. OMG, that’s totally helpful information, Kyle. So Nev and Max decide that this Facebook page is either real or someone has gone to great lengths to fabricate it using numerous people. We keep getting glimpses of these photos of Kari Ann in lingerie or rolling naked in bed sheets. Nev is soaked in sweat.
The next day the guys meet up with Joe and Rose at some batting cages to reveal what they’ve discovered. Joe’s best friend Harley is also here. When they all sit down to chat Nev asks Rose if she’s talked to Kari Ann lately and Rose says yes, but it’s just been about business. Oh yes, their joint modeling venture, of course. Then Nev asks Harley what he thought when he first saw pictures of Kari Ann. Shockingly, Harley thought she was totally hot.
“I can’t wait to meet all her hot model friends who are just like her!”
Well the guys have every reason to believe that Kari Ann is genuine – particularly after speaking to her agent. What? Her agent told them he didn’t know anything and basically laughed in their faces. Or ears. Whatever. Joe says it would be amazing if he’s been talking to the real Kari Ann but he still wants to meet her to be sure. Good thinking, Joe. Nev takes Rose aside to see what she thinks and Rose says she totally thinks it’s really Kari Ann, but they should meet face to face and then go from there. Thanks for that profound insight, Rose.
“We have a bond because we’re both models, so I totally believe her.”
