Ft. Madison Teen Stars on MTV Show “Catfish”
A Ft. Madison teen has become a local celebrity over night. 18-year-old Jennifer Hubbs starred on the MTV Show “Catfish” last night. The show helps people who meet online to discover whether or not they really know who they’re talking to. Hubbs met up with her online crush in San Francisco only to find he wasn’t who he said he was, and he didn’t seem to care either. It turned out he had been talking to a number of girls only to “work on his game”.
Hubbs watched the episode last night with a group of friends…
“When I watched the show last night I made everyone who was watching with me be quiet because I needed to hear it. I don’t even remember what I even said because there was so much going through my mind. I was concentrating more on making words make sense.”
She says there was one thing she was worried about with reality TV, and that’s the editing process..
“I was very happy with the editing actually, because that’s what I was worried about. I was worried about how I would be portrayed to others because I didn’t want to be portrayed as some girl who fell in love online and then went and met him. I wanted it to be something for people to remember.”
Hubbs says she has started seeing another boy online, but wants to clarify that they have Skyped so this time she knows for sure who she is talking to. She hasn’t talked to the “Catfish” since.
