Catfish Host Nev Schulman Bares His Checkered Past In A Memoir

NYLON Celebrates December/January Cover Star Lucy Hale Presented By bebe At Andaz West Hollywood

 

Nev Schulman, host of MTV’s Catfish focuses on bringing people together as a congenial relationship documentary maker. Who knew the man who makes people’s romantic internet dreams come true was a former hellraiser?

In between his exploration of photography, dance and starting a production company with his brother Ariel, Nev’s memoir tells of stealing, drug dealing and various forms of bad behavior. No judgement is intended; it is quite clear he turned himself around and now has the desire to reveal all about his troubled teenage years.

“My real problem was stealing, ” confesses Nev. He stole DVDs from Tower records, booze from restaurants and clothing from Ralph Lauren. He even did some drug dealing and even took a dump in his school cafeteria’s cereal dispenser. Nev even totaled a few cars and admits it is a “wonder he is still alive.”

Perhaps his own dissolute youth is partial inspiration for his desire to help young people. He is a founding member of the Young Leadership Committee for the youth organization “Leave Out Violence.”
