Nev Schulman, the star of the documentary “Catfish” and host of the similarly named TV show on MTV, says he will be working on the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax story. I am working on finding out more about this @mteo_5 #Catfish story. I have been in contact with the woman involved and will get the truth. — Nev Schulman (@NevSchulman) January 17, 2013 We don’t know if Schulman is joking about the matter, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get involved. At the least, his tweet proves how far-reaching this story has become. “Catfishing,” is about to enter the American lexicon thanks to Wednesday’s affairs. The name refers to the practice of someone who creates a fake identity to deceive another person for purposes of an online relationship. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick reference the term when defending Te’o as a victim in the hoax. Schulman hosts “Catfish: The TV Show,” in which he gets two people who have forged an online relationship to meet for the first time to see if one has been fooled or not. This story will only get more interesting.
