'Catfish' Creator Nev Schulman Reveals His Top Picks for a New Co-Host (EXCLUSIVE)


It might feel like Catfish has been on MTV forever, but the truth is we're all just getting old. Back in 2010, after beginning an online romance with a young woman who wasn't the person she said she was, Nev Schulman effectively coined the term "catfish" to describe the nefarious actions of a person creating a persona to fool others of their identity online. 

And his legacy hasn't only touched the massive population of online daters — which accounts for at least 40 million Americans looking for love — it's also devolved into a hit MTV show with over 140 episodes, which follows couples who've never met outside of their relationship on the internet. 

We recently spoke with creator of the show exclusively, about new (possibly permanent) co-hosts, dating tips, and how to get on the super real reality show.
