Drew Barrymore’s catfish story was an experience that left her feeling dumb. Somehow, the show host got played by someone posing to be an NFL star. He might never have played football, but he did score cheap points at Barrymore’s expense.

Drew Barrymore’s Catfish Tale on Raya

Most people hold the belief that Raya, a celebrity dating app, can nearly never go wrong as it matches you with known faces. But Drew’s time on the app has left her with a lesson that would make her more careful.

The Drew Barrymore Show host sat down with co-host Ross Matthews to detail how she got catfished on Raya while searching for love. According to the actress, the synergy with this potential partner ended almost as soon as it began.

Barrymore was introduced to someone who adopted the identity of a quarterback player from the Los Angeles Rams team. The seemingly excited celebrity released her portfolio as a football fanatic. She moved to attend the first game played by the LA Rams at the coliseum, all to support the team.

While sharing the unsavory Raya catfish story, Drew Barrymore clarified that her initial excitement was due to her love for sports and not upping her celebrity status with an NFL lover. Unfortunately, there was no need to be that truthful as it turned out to be a fraud. The man at the other end of the chat was a musician who wanted to be “cute” by lying — he even called her “Drewsk.” Via the clip shared by TMZ, the talk show host immediately objected to the name saying “I hate you.”

Ross, her co-host, could not hide his disappointment at the situation. However, he confessed to having high hopes when Drew began her story about being catfished. The listener had prayed that his co-host would be Taylor Swift, who is currently in a romance with an athlete.
