Why fans thought Mahogany was a catfish

Fans were almost 100% convinced that Mahogany was a catfish up until we saw her on the latest episode, for more reasons than one.

Firstly, she is a stunner and Ben only seemed to have pictures of her which made fans speculate if she was real or someone else using the ‘real’ Mahognany’s pictures.

Aside from this though, Ben planned an expensive trip to Peru to go and see Mahogany but she was almost impossible to contact throughout the entire process.

On the day Ben was sue to travel, Mahogany sent a text saying “don’t come.” This already left a sour taste in the audience’s mouth but Ben still decided to go and hoped that she was just nervous.

When he got there he was left in the dark for almost 3 days and didn’t hear a single word from Mahogany. This was when fans thought that she wasn’t real and wasn’t going to show up.

However, when Ben told her that he was at a restaurant that sparked her to respond and she told him she would meet him there. Ben was left waiting for 90 minutes until Mahogany showed up and we finally saw that she was real.
