This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Holy identity crisis!
We've heard some wacky stories about Catfish: The TV Show, but nothing like this!!!
In the docudrama reality series, Nev Schulman facilitates and documents people meeting for the first time after a long online romance and sometimes the person on the other end isn't exactly who they claim to be.
In this drama-filled episode, handsome Tyler falls in love with a young pretty college girl named Amanda, but Amanda turns out to look just a little different than the photos she posted on her Facebook.
In fact, Amanda isn't even a woman at all!
Amanda is Aaron, a gay man who admitted to using his blonde female online identity to talk to about 100 different men and even got kicked out of college for chatting with his RA as seductive Amanda!
Watch the INSANE TV moment (above)!!!
