It was a mess.

I think the guy is an in the closet bisexual or homosexual (he is curious about men, but I wasn't sure if he was also into women also). The person he's been talking to online lied about being an MTF transgender, is actually a lesbian with an eleven year old daughter. Earlier in the show, Rod went on how he loved her despite her being MTF (so he's told), but once he met her and was back in the car with Nev and Max, he confessed it was about the money she was sending him that paid for his cell phone bill and would have stopped talking to her long ago if it weren't for that.
