Manti Te’o is going to have a lot to talk about with Katie Couric.
First, there’s a fake Te’o in a fake eHarmony ad about the hoax surrounding his fake dead girlfriend. He confides that he and Lennay Kekua had their challenges, “like when she got in a car accident at some point in an eight-month span in 2011.” Still, “she’s the most considerate person I know, like when she called me after she already died of leukemia. That changed my life. I can’t believe I met somebody this incredible. And nobody else believes it either.”
And in the “Catfish” episode featuring Te’o (and a creepycrawlly version of “Good Vibrations”), the Te’o impersonater utters these immortal words when Kekua calls him after her funeral: “You came back to life! Yeah! Did you see my game against USC?”
