MTV Catfish: The TV Show can be thanked for some of reality television's most bizarre moments. Co-hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph have been put in some crazy situations when revealing the true identities of catfish, leading to some of the funniest Catfish episodes.

After all, the show proves that when you're talking to a stranger on the Internet, they really could be anyone - like the rapper Bow Wow. You can bet the Bow Wow Catfish episode made our list. These moments range from mildly cringe-y to downright disturbing. The top Catfish episodes are extremely quotable — season 3, episode 2, "Antwane and Tony" graced the world with, "You shoulda never called me a fat a** Kelly Price." The Catfish "you got me there episode" is also infamous - and hilarious, albeit strange. Aside from the Kelly Price Catfish episode, other crazy Catfish episodes result from a co-host switch-up. For example, Machine Gun Kelly was a pretty dramatic guest co-host. He lost his temper when it turned out the subject of the episode had lied to him and Nev. Charlemagne tha God was also a hilarious Catfish TV guest.

One of the most shocking Catfish episodes involves a medium who talks to ghosts. The Catfish medium episode tested Nev and Max’s faith, as the "catfish" in question claimed to be able to speak to someone’s late father. Most of the time, however, Catfish deals with two people who started a romantic relationship online, until one suspects the other is lying about their identity. 

Every now and then, like in the Lauren and Derek Catfish episode, our "catfish" in question wasn’t lying at all. When that happens, the results can actually be pretty sweet. Lauren and Derek were the first couple to become engaged after meeting on the show, but unfortunately they called it quits back in 2014. But overall, Catfish: The TV Show is an unpredictable mixed bag. That's what makes it so addicting to watch. Here are the wackiest moments to come from Catfish: The TV Show so far.
