Nev opens each show by giving a brief overview of the week's profiled crime. He's only on for a couple of minutes.
Dometi Pongo, who is a MTV journalist, is the one who researches and interviews people affiliated with the cases. The show is centered around his search for the truth.
I've watched every episode so far and it's interesting because even though the cases are ones that have "gone viral," I've only heard about one so far. It happened in the Chicago suburbs near where I live.
As far as last night's Catfish, the dad sounds like a huge asshole. Lying about, and to, his kids. I'm glad things worked out because Sparkayla sounded mostly estranged from her father and half-sisters. She yearned for a steady family connection.
