Nev is not so gullible anymore.

Victim to Detective: MTV's Nev Schulman Helps Others in Catfish: The TV Show

Nev Schulman's brother Ariel debuted the 2010 documentary Catfish at the Sundance Film Festival not knowing what a success it would be. The film followed Nev throughout his journey to find out who he was in an online romance with.

Plot twist! It was not the sexy young photographer he thought it was! It was a middle-aged mom pretending to be a dozen different people to fool Nev into a relationship. Ever since he was swindled, Nev made it his duty to help others just like him in the smash success Catfish: The TV Show.

MTV Hit Show Catfish, Still Running 8 Years Later!

Over 100 episodes later, the MTV show is still popular! Nev and his co-hosts find people being catfished online and do their best to find the real person behind the fishy online personas. Usually, the online Romeo and Juliet's are not who they say they are but every once in a while Nev jumps for joy when they find the Catfish telling the truth after all.
