    I feel bad for the dude. I watched enough “Catfish” to find Te’o’s story believable. But, it’s fascinating to me that people can still be so naive with these supposed online relationships. Not trying to attack the dude because I’m sure he feels bad enough.

    I’m bewildered as to why this has merited so much attention and coverage. Zzzz….

  • AppleStinx

    Inspiration kid. I feel like changing my name to Greg’ri Le’o and go cyber a ghost online.

  • MikeS

    Te’o is a dumb dumb.

  • MikeS

    I bet Catfish ratings will go up this week because of this story.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Thank you bsp — I’ve wondered the same thing since it got started. Why does this matter?

  • Hillbilly

    Why a daytime talk show? Not that it really matters. I mean you know the “MSM” did their job before reporting the story in the first place.

  • Sally

    I have zero interest in this interview.
