Nev Schulman        

Producer, Actor, Photographer & TV Host Known for MTV's "Catfish: The TV Show"

Yaniv “Nev” Schulman is a producer, photographer, actor and TV host known for his 2010 documentary film Catfish and its follow-up TV series “Catfish: The TV Show,” which aired on MTV.

Catfish followed Schulman as he fell in love with a woman he met online only to find out the woman was not who she said she was. “Catfish: The TV Show” on the other hand depicts real couples who have found love online but have yet to meet in person.

Schulman is also the author of a book, “In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age (2014),” in which he gives observations gleaned from his work on the “Catfish” show and film.

Schulman, who was interested in photography and dance from a young age, studied those two subjects at Sarah Lawrence College for a time. However, Schulman was expelled for hitting a woman – he says it was self-defense.
