Host of MTV's CATFISH Speaks Tuesday at SWOSU

Nev Schulman

Nev Schulman, host of MTV’s hit show CATFISH: THE TV SHOW, will speak about his experiences and perspectives on social media this Tuesday, November 5, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Admission is free to the 7:30 event in the Fine Arts Center. Schulman’s appearance is part of SWOSU’s Panorama Series.

According to MTV, nearly one in four of people aged 18-24 has online dated and one in two has a “friend” who does it. And, in the past three years, traffic to online dating sites has tripled.

MTV’s CATFISH:  THE TV SHOW tackles the mystery and complexities of dating in a digital world.    The series follows Schulman, whose own online love drama was the subject of the “Catfish” movie, as he takes viewers on a deeply personal journey that goes inside the stories of young people as their online-only romantic relationships collide with first-time, real-life encounters.

Schulman is a New York City photographer and filmmaker and the youngest member of Supermarch. His photography has appeared in magazines and newspapers such as Vogue, The New York Times, Lucky, New York magazine, the New York Sun and Dance Magazine.
