Going into Wednesday's Celebrity Big Brother finale, fans are obviously wondering who will take home the $250,000 prize. But the second most pressing question on viewers' minds is whether houseguest Dina Lohan will finally meet her boyfriend once she's released from the Celebrity Big Brother house this week.
During last Thursday's episode, the CBS reality series aired a conversation Lohan had with fellow houseguests Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton and Natalie Eva Marie in which Lohan revealed that she had never met her boyfriend of five years. The pair have only spoken on the phone and never even FaceTimed, Lohan claimed, which obviously raised the suspicions of Kandi, Tamar and Natalie — not to mention of the entire audience.
After the episode aired, a man claiming to be Dina's boyfriend, Jesse Douglass Nadler, tweeted at the Celebrity Big Brother account to allegedly prove he's not a catfish. The next day, Nev Schulman, who hosts MTV's Catfish, expressed interest in finding Dina's boyfriend. On Wednesday, Nev shared on Twitter that he had done just that, confirming Jesse to be Dina's unseen beau. But it seems as though there is still plenty of more to be revealed regarding this unorthodox relationship, with Nev tweeting that Jesse's "story is way bigger than I have ever imagined." Nev also added that there will be more on this coming soon and that he will "be the judge" of whether Jesse actually is "Real as Real."
I'll be the judge of that... https://t.co/4i8lHpD52J— Nev Schulman (@NevSchulman) February 13, 2019
Spending the past month in the Celebrity Big Brother house without any contact with the outside world — including with her boyfriend — hasn't appeared to change Lohan's dedication to this relationship. The original momager expressed her intentions to marry him one day, despite never having met. We can't help but wonder what Lohan's daughter, Lindsay Lohan, would think of that, seeing as she left a comment on Big Brother's Instagram account in which she quipped, "no more weird #catfish please."
So will Dina and Jesse appear on a very special episode of Catfish? Will CBS fly Jesse out to surprise Dina at the Celebrity Big Brother finale on Wednesday? We'll just have to wait and see at this point, but at least for right now we can breathe a little easier knowing Dina's boyfriend isn't a total scammer.
Celebrity Big Brother's two-hour season finale airs Wednesday at 9/8c on CBS.
