The first thing they do is pull up Felicia’s Facebook page – something Mike never bothered to do. Her page seems legitimate – she has hundreds of friends and the pictures are of the same person Mike showed them. They conclude that they need to get in touch with one of her friends to confirm a few things about Felicia, so they send a message to a girl named Charmaine. They also wonder why there are no pictures on Felicia’s Facebook page of this business she owns, which is a hair salon. They google the hair salon in Orlando and find a website. But the website says that the salon was established in 2007, at which time Felicia would have been a senior in high school. They try to call the salon, but the phone number is no longer in service. They call Mike to find out the date of the alleged car accident so that they can look at Felicia’s Facebook pictures for signs of injury. Mike tells them that she sprained her pinky, but there are no pinky splints in any pictures or anything resembling any type of injury. The guys conclude that Felicia IS the girl in the pictures, but they can’t know for sure where she lives or whether or not she owns a hair salon. Or if she was ever in a car accident.
The next morning Facebook friend Charmaine calls to tell Nev everything she knows about Felicia – and why not? She knows that Felicia has been talking to Mike online, and she knows that Felicia has been living in Orlando since she was 17. She also knows that Felicia is an online liar and has misled guys in the past about her looks and whereabouts. So much so, that her friends and family staged an intervention to get her to stop with all the fake online living. She also says that Mike should be aware that it’s likely that Felicia is talking to other people online, and not just him. Nev wonders if Mike is interested in being in a relationship with a liar, and Max wonders if Felicia is actually even interested in being with Mike, or if she’s just playing with him to stroke her own ego. Let’s go see what Mike thinks.
Turns out, Mike DOES think it’s odd that Felicia would lie about where she lives. But he still wants to meet her and see what’s up. So Nev calls Felicia and Felicia is weird about them coming to see her. Now’s not a good time, I have stuff I have to do tomorrow, blah, blah, blah, as usual. And as usual, Nev guilts her into agreeing to meet, and the guys head to the airport the very next day. As the plane lands, Mike and Felicia are texting each other, saying how excited they are to meet each other. And later, the guys all drive to Felicia’s house, which looks totally normal. And Felicia comes right out the main door when Mike knocks! Although, this kind of looks like the side of the house, but at least she’s not emerging from a fort made of old mattresses in the backyard.
They hug and Mike says he was hoping that Felicia could show them around Orlando today and show them her salon. She stammers that she’s lied about some things and she needs to come clean. First of all, she hasn’t lived in New Jersey for quite a while now and she’s here in Orlando going to school. Also, there’s no salon. Felicia says she invented the salon because Mike kept asking her to hang out, so she needed a big story to tell him so he’d quit trying to hang out with her. Oh okay, so the story became that she was “moving to Orlando” to “open a salon.” She says she’s sorry and she didn’t purposely lie to him – one of my favorite lines on this show. Um, yes, you DID purposely lie to him. That’s exactly what you did. She says she was afraid if she told Mike she didn’t live near him then he wouldn’t see any point in getting to know her. That’s… a new one. I mean, he’s meeting people on the internet, right? Would location really be a deal breaker? I don’t know what to believe. Anyway, Mike says he has a hard time dealing with people who lie to him.
Nev steps in and says that since both Mike and Felicia are who they’ve said they are, why would Felicia lie about her location and her business? Felicia says that it’s basically out of habit. She’s lied to people on the internet for years now and Mike was the first guy she’s even been THIS honest with. Every catfish says some version of THAT speech as well. Felicia says she would never lie again. HA! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Nev announces that it’s time for Mike to take a break and think about everything.
