The Manti Te'o Netflix Doc is About More Than Just Catfishing

If you think this could've never happened to you, think again.

Former Heisman Trophy finalist Manti Te'o has heard all of the jokes, seen all of the memes

cried all of the tears he could over being the first (and most famous) celebrity victim of catfishing.

More than nine years after Deadspin exposed the truth about Te'o dating a woman who didn't exist

he embattled and embarrassed former football prodigy is finally telling his side of the story in the new Netflix doc Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn't Exist.

A scandal doesn't captivate mainstream media for more than a news segment unless it involves someone of near-mythic levels of fame

which Te'o possessed between 2009-2012.

The Netflix doc drives home the accomplishments— 2012 Heisman Award finalist
