The producers of MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show are expanding their nets to not only catch catfish looking for love, but also those stirring up hate! The social media accounts in charge of recruiting for the show have been sharing a series of casting call announcements that are looking for internet trolls and their targets as well as “online rivals” so that they can arrange for them to meet in person.
Catfish is coming back, and judging from the dramatic new preview trailer just released by MTV, Nev and Max are casting their nets wide and “the catfish are hungrier than ever!”

It was first revealed last July that Catfish co-host Max Joseph would be fulfilling his dream of directing a feature-length motion picture, and our excitement grew when it was announced in August that the film, titled We Are Your Friends, would star Zac Efron as well as Gone Girl star (and “Blurred Lines” music video beauty) Emily Ratajkowski!
Catfish co-host Max Joseph has always been an adamant supporter of the LGBT community and proponent of LGBT rights, but he is angered that people’s attention is on Bruce Jenner coming out as transgender in the wake of the earthquake in Nepal that has claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people, as well as the protests in Baltimore and “another black life snuffed out at the hands of the police.”
