Nev Schulman’s ‘Catflish’ partner Max Joseph leaving MTV show

Max Joseph is leaving the MTV reality show “Catfish” after seven years.

“Hey guys, the time has come, sadly, for me to move on from Catfish,” he tweeted on Wednesday. “Working on this show for the last seven years has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my country and human nature in general. Nev [Schulman] and I have become brothers and our bromance has blossomed before your eyes.

“For a while now I have been straddling two careers as TV host and filmmaker, and while this level of busy-ness is a dream come true, my life can no longer sustain it. With Catfish still going strong after 7 seasons, 115 episodes, 31 specials and showing no sign of slowing down, I feel it is finally the time for me to make my exit.”

Nev Schulman — Joseph’s partner on the series, which follows the pair as they help fans figure out who they’re really speaking to online — tweeted his support for Joseph shortly after the announcement.

The series resumed production in June after Schulman was cleared of sexual misconduct allegations.
