On the Internet, Catfish is a man/woman who makes fake individual profiles via web-based networking sites utilising another person's photos and false personal information, and try to be someone they are not. These Catfish, as a rule, expect to trap a clueless individual or group of people into falling in love with them. The word ``Catfish´´ is used because of well-known Movie Producer Schulman. In the year 2010, there was a documentary, where Schulman finds that the women he thought he had a perfect relationship with, was not fully true about herself. Schulman and Joseph are the Producers of MTV's Catfish. They help individuals who are emotionally involved with somebody they have never actually met.
Every episode is a test for the couples, to check whether they are true to each other in their relation, or they are indeed a Catfish, hiding something or the other about themselves from their partner. Some couples who come on the Show have been talking for a couple of months and some are those who are experiencing problems even after being together for many years. Nev tells us that he got demands from people from different places, to help them test their partner's honesty about themselves. In every episode, the hosts help a person with an alternate story, to research about their partners and reveal the reality. Max and Nev contact the other partner to orchestrate a first meeting between the two virtual-beaus, then records how the couple behaves and what they do.
Schulman said that regardless of whether two partners are misleading each other and it ends up being an unfortunate calamity, it is just one part of the Show. The team tries to figure out what drove them to this place. They try to understand the reason because of which they are doing it, what are they feeling, their identity, and why that reverberates with a huge number of other youngsters who have similar emotions, who feel lonely because of not having friends or people they can share anything with.
