At one point in Ashley Taylor’s episode of “My 600-lb Life,” she discusses how she has a habit of catfishing online. It was another one of her bad habits she seemed to recognize needed to change. At one point in her episode, she mentions, “I recently got caught impersonating someone on the internet, and I hope people know that I never meant to hurt anyone. That was never my intention. Had I known that it was going to get out of control like this, I would have never done it” (via International Business Times).
It turns out you can watch her deceptive ways on the MTV reality series “Catfish.” She appeared on the first episode of Season 8, which aired at the beginning of 2020, where she pretended to be someone else to a woman named Red. Similar to how Taylor treated Dr. Now, she was hostile toward the “Catfish” crew when they merely attempted to get answers about why she felt compelled to catfish Red for so long.
That wasn’t her last time showing up on “Catfish,” as she also has an appearance on Season 8, Episode 10. This time around, the crew stages an intervention of sorts, complete with numerous people Taylor fooled over the years, including Red. After getting caught twice, one would assume Taylor’s catfishing days are over, but there’s no way to be sure. Perhaps she could go for the trifecta and pop up on a future episode of the MTV series.
