Nev Schulman is a producer ,actor and director who first came to mainstream prominence in 2010 when he release his award winning documentary Catfish. The documentary documented how Nev built a real relationship with a young woman on facebook. The young woman it would later turn out was not who she claimed to be and had actually created a whole circle of friends and family as a way of further convincing Nev of her authenticity. We won’t spoil the documentary, however with the success of the documentary, MTV picked up the concept for a reality tv series which has been a runaway success. Now in 2015 Nev has just become the new global ambassador for the Rocawear brand!
