Nev Schulman wants to play matchmaker for a pair of folks who got catfished by people pretending to be Katy Perry and “Stranger Things” star Dacre Montgomery.
We got the “Catfish” star at Aces Pizza in New York City Friday, and our photog asked him about the Kentucky woman who divorced her husband and got swindled out of $10,000 by someone pretending to be the Netflix actor.
Nev says the newly single mother, McKayla, would make a great match for a guy from his old MTV show … Spencer.
As Nev explains, Spencer infamously got catfished by a woman masquerading as the “Dark Horse” singer … and their awkward meeting was featured on his show.
Needless to say, Nev thinks Spencer and McKayla have enough in common to strike up a relationship.
While lots of folks are dragging McKayla for thinking she actually had a shot with a celeb, Nev says not so fast … and he tells us why it’s not that extreme of a premise.
Still, Nev cautions anyone going online in search of love to beware of some big red flags … like when your potential partner starts asking for money. Nev says that’s a dead giveaway.
It’s funny … Nev thinks he’s actually being catfished here in some ways … as we reported, McKayla detailed her saga on a YouTube channel called “Catfished.”
Nev says neither he or his show are involved in the YT channel in any capacity … but he’s laughing it off.
