He pursued both interests all throughout his formative years and eventually enrolled at the Sarah Lawrence College New York to study both subjects.

Nev Schulman spent three years at Sarah Lawrence before falling into troubled waters. In his junior year in 2006, he attended a coming-out dance for LGBTQ students and was taking pictures of couples who were dancing and kissing. A lesbian student, who felt that he had no right to do so without their permission, confronted him and he ended up punching her.

Schulman later disclosed that he only acted in self-defense and that he thought she was a man. His victim, on the other hand, disclosed that he punched her multiple times.

Nev Schulman’s Net Worth

Nev Schulman has a net worth of $2,000,000. This comes from his earnings from his two successful projects; the documentary film – Catfish and the MTV TV series, Catfish: The TV Show. Schulman’s journey to ‘catfish stardom’ started in 2010 when an 8-year-old girl named Abby, sent him a painting she had done of his picture on Facebook.

Schulman soon became Facebook friends with not just Abby but also her mom, Angela and her beautiful elder sister, Megan. The media personality eventually commenced an online romance with Megan.

In the course of the relationship, Schulman noticed several red flags and became suspicious. He thus decided to visit his Facebook friends in Michigan only to discover an intricately woven web of lies. It turned out that Abby had no artistic talent and that it was her mom, Angela, who made the painting. It also turned out that Megan was not real but was invented by Angela who was running the fake accounts.

The whole experience was later turned into the 2010 documentary film, Catfish. The film was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and received critical acclaim. It also spurned a follow-up series titled Catfish: The TV Show. Catfish: The TV Show follows Schulman and his crew as they help other online couples discover whether their relationship is built on truth or on a foundation of lies.

Most often than not, it turns out that one or even both persons in the relationship are lying. However, there have also been some genuine and heartfelt relationships on the show. Catfish: The TV Show debuted on MTV in 2012. It has since spurned international versions in several Latin American countries.
