Nev Schulman said an emotional goodbye to his departing Catfish co-host Max Joseph as he appeared on the show for the final time on Wednesday.
The pair’s fame skyrocketed after hosting the famous MTV series, which sees them travelling around America exposing men and women who use fake online dating profiles to pose as people they’re not.
On Wednesday, Max’s seven-year run came to an end as the pair helped a man named Nick who wanted to discover the true identity of his girlfriend of five months, Jasmine.
They later discover “Jasmine”, whose real name is Nicole, has been using another person’s pictures to create a false online persona.
He also tweeted a picture of them together, adding: “My forever prom king. #catfish #SeeYouLaterMax.”
Earlier this month, Max revealed he was quitting the show to focus on his filmmaking career.
He wrote on Twitter : “Hey guys, the time has come, sadly, for me to move on from Catfish.
“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 and I gave become brothers and our bromance has blossomed before your eyes.”
He said his new work in film had meant his hosting can no longer continue.
He added: “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.
“Although I have a heavy heart, I am so excited for everything that’s to come – for myself, for our crew and for the show.
“Thanks for watching, thank you for the love, for the memories, and the memes. It really was a f****** blast and I am eternally grateful for every second of it.”
