What happened to TikTok star Jake Fuller on MTV's 'Catfish'?

The TikToker decided to reach out to Nev Schulman and Kamie Crawford when he grew suspicious of a girl he was talking to on social media. According to Jake, "Taylor" would cover her camera when the two would FaceTime and had ghosted him numerous times. Wanting to find out who was actually behind the camera, Jake asked for help. 

In the end, Taylor was a fake identity and Jake met the real person behind the pictures, Amanda. She told Jake that she was never good at making friends and was bullied in high school, so she reached out to influencers like Jake to have "cool" people talk to her.
