Default Manti Teo was talking to a MAN during his 'Catfish' hoax

Quote:
The woman whose picture was used to create Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend has been identified, but the voice of the woman who had hours of late-night phone calls with the Notre Dame star linebacker has remained silent. Turns out that's because it reportedly was a man.

The lawyer for the man who has been identified as behind the hoax, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, told the New York Daily News that his client disguised his voice and assumed the identity of Lennay Kekua to try to develop a relationship with Te'o.

Can somebody explain this Catfish thing. I believe this guy was tricking Te'o so he could get on an MTV tv show right?

Just think about how unbelievable every guy that tries to talk like a girl sounds, then think about how Manti fell for it the whole time.

He certainly told some lies (he even admits that) but I'll believe him if they can prove those phone call logs. The 500 hrs of phone time to that same number makes no sense otherwise. Unfortunately it also means his name will become synonymous with stupid.

they are gay, it can't be any more obvious. Manti just needs to come out, and admit it, then the whole thing will blow over.

Sounds like a girl to me, even when I know it's a dude. They are saying this guy has voice acting training, whatever that means.
