PHOTOS Meet Catfish star Max Joseph’s wife, Priscila Joseph

Max Joseph girlfriend

On Catfish, Max Joseph is the Robin to Nev Schulman’s Batman. But that hasn’t stopped the lovable assistant from shining.

During the course of a typical episode of Catfish, where Max always strikes a balance between optimism and realism, Twitter lights up with fan messages: “Max Joseph from Catfish is so adorable #Icanteven” and “Max Joseph is the definition of a perfect human” are just a couple recent examples.

Still, for someone who makes a career of exposing personal truths, Max remains surprisingly discreet when it comes to his own relationship. (Nev also keeps pretty hush-hush, but we were able to learn more about his girlfriend last winter.) Unfortunately for all those fan girls and guys (and anyone aspiring to try to catfish him), Max is officially off the market: He is married to an adorable Brazilian fashion blogger, Priscila Joseph.

(Going back to the Robin and Batman metaphor earlier, Max’s close relationship with Nev on camera in addition to his fervent support for gay rights has caused many to wonder if perhaps Max is gay. It seems the obvious answer to that is no, not that there’s nothing wrong with that!)

Max’s lovely wife is a world-traveling entrepreneur who sells hard-to-find fashions in her native country. She also shares many of those international find on her blog, Majô.

“My job is to find the pieces, put together the outfits, obsess over the photos and report back on videos, museums, restaurants and other cool places here in Los Angeles as well as others cities,” she said on the blog. “I will have the indispensable support of my boy-husband Max Joseph whose creativity has added to the site’s visual quality.”

As Priscila notes, the couple is currently based in California. They both seem to be racking up the air miles, though, between visits back to Brazil and events around the country.

No word on when the couple married, but Priscila did refer to Max as her husband in her second blog post from August 2012. Judging by this picture from their first date, they were together for a while before that.

(Max mentioned he started going grey when he was 15, so his hair color isn’t really a good meter to judge the photo’s age.)

    Why does Joseph hold a camera (in such a way that it proves he doesn’t know how a camera works) when there’s a film crew filming them both?

    • Guest

      I would think, that, HIS camera is HIS property, so he can use his film later, for whatever he chooses- being that he IS a Film maker…. Likewise, the film crew, film for MTV and that is MTV’s property, NOT his… That would be my best guess… He does hold HIS DIGITAL camera, in a special way, so as to film what is going on in the conversation AND pay attention to ALL THE DRAMA that is going on all around him AND to be a film maker, in the process… I cannot imagine that it is easy combining all 3 things at once…so, that you still are fully paying attention to the details at hand, while still being aware of your (sometimes suspicious and creepy) surroundings, all around you… 🙁

      • Jaybone

        But it’s not like it’s cinéma vérité . The creators have gone on record saying that a lot of what’s “filmed” has been set up ahead of time. Like all “reality” shows, the “reality” is relative. For all we know, Max Joseph’s camera isn’t even turned on. At any rate…it’s pointless and looks stupid.

        • Marieke

          If you pay close attention, you can spot the bits he filmed. So they do use his film, just not as much as the MTV crews film.

          • mIMI

            yes, it seems more “real”; they use both images.

  • Karen Evangelista

    Well that answers my question :-). Just came online specifically to check if Max is gay. Obviously he isn’t and his wife is very pretty.

  • Julia Deborah

    what!!! i definitely thought max was gay!!!!!!

  • nicole

    nicole banfi ti ama un sacco, tu sei il suo idolo e quindi falle il piacere di inviarle un messaggio possibilmente in italiano!!

  • BGC12 Linsey

    I read about his hair, But Im I the only one who thinks She looks a little young for him?,
    The first time I saw catfish I literally though Max was Nevs uncle, and surprisingly Nev is turning 30 in September,


    They are so gay. Nothing wrong with that. But I am watching Catfish and it soooo obvious they are gay. They can’t hide it and they shouldn’t. I see the way they look at each other. At the very least they are Bi-sexual. lol

  • LauraAlexandra

    He is heterosexual STRAIGHTTTT

  • April Lasota-Szczesny

    I just think him and Nev are sexy sexy sexy!!!!

  • Kennedi Franklin

    Y does max hold the camera? To me he is the one giving the most valuable advice to the people on the show.For example,on the episode with Alica and Aliyah.He the one that got Aliyah to tell her real reason why she was doing all that in the first place.So therefore i think Max does a better job doing the advice then nev.

  • Cocobaby

    i love them both i don’t think neither is gay so chill

  • The fox

    I’m watching it right now and nev is laying in the bed wishing max was next to him… GAY must see episode on right now 26 of march 2015…wow but it’s cool!

  • Tamata

    Max ur awesome but please shave ur neck and beard.

  • Theo

    In one episode…a morning scene in a two bed hotel room..only one of the beds was slept in…interesting…

  • alma

    in a chapter of catfish nev he approaches and touches a lot Max and Max says do not touch me just looking for any excuse to touch me!
    what was that? you are not supposed Max would say do not touch me and that’s enough point, to say the pretext of looking as if they were repeatedly?] ??

  • Max…….please don’t do this. Refute this lie. 🙁
