We've had Superheroes, American Ninja Warriors, and countless other big names invade the city of Cleveland, but never Catfish....Unitl now!
That's right, MTV's Catfish announced on social media Monday that Cleveland would be its next stop.
Next stop: Cleveland, OH! 📍 #Catfish— Catfish (@CatfishMTV) August 17, 2017
The show, hosted by Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, is based on the 2010 film Catfish.
The hit show has been highlighting both the trials and triumphs of online dating since 2012.
Locals responded to the news in a various ways.

But what does that mean for Cleveland?
Well, we'll just have to wait and see.
Until then use your reverse Google image search, and ask to Skype, Face time, Tango, and any other form of video chatting if you can't meet in person.
Unless, you want to be the star of the next episode.
