5. Catfish: The TV Show
How do young people who’ve embraced the digital age find love? Often, it’s by connecting online with people they’ve never met in person.

The problem with this approach – the guy or girl you’ve fallen for could be lying about who they really are. This MTV series brings together couples who’ve interacted solely through their LCD screens. Over the course of months or even years – these romantics have become smitten-but what will happen when they meet in real life for the first time?
