Tonight is the night that Catfish almost returns to MTV. I say almost because tonight is just a glimpse at what we can expect from season 2, which actually premieres for real next Monday (on National Catfish Day, natch), but I am going to take this opportunity to profess my love to Nev Schulman and reminisce about that time I met him. Let me begin. OK! Exclusive: The Girl Code Girls Talk PDA But wait, before we go into the actual nitty-gritty of our meet-and-greet, let's first discuss how my obsession with Nev (pronounced Neeev, as all true fans know) began. I think it was probably in late 2012 when MTV aired a Catfish marathon sometime over Christmas break, followed by Catfish: The Movie. I never actually saw the movie before that time even though I remember it happening, but I was a huge fan of the show since it premiered on MTV in November. I was basically just enthralled by the idea of crazy people dating online, mostly because I had done online dating at one point in my life and was just happy to know there were guys out there that were even less boyfriend material than the few I dated. So basically, I started watching the show not because of Nev, but because the show was generally great. But a few epsiodes in and it was basically confirmed that he was the true love of my life. Just the way he interacted with his sidekick, Max Joseph, the way he felt so badly and genuinely sympathetic for the people who got Catfished, the way he acted so upset and surprised when he found something unsettling about one of the online daters on Facebook. Just seemed like a genuinely great dude, you know? And even though I loved him, I wasn't even mad that Saturday Night Live made fun of him in this Catfish skit with Adam Levine starring as Nev. It's actually pretty hilarious: But now let's flash forward to February of 2013. Social Media Week was happening in New York City, which is basically a week-long conference where people in the media industry can pick and choose a few panels to attend. As I was looking through a monstrously long-list of options, one caught my eye that was going to be taking place on a weeknight evening at the MTV headquarters in Times Square and Nev Schulman was going to be one of the panelists. It was about how celebrities interact with their fans via social media and I mean, hello, it could've been about the history of Alaska and I still would've gone if Nev was going to be there. Photos: Catfish and More Shows to Watch Tonight on TV So I signed up and attended the conference with a co-worker. We were basically both there competing over who could get Nev to fall in love with us first, and not sure who won that one. But probably me, because before it began, I snapped this pic of Nev checking his teeth in a handheld mirror before the interview portion. If anyone knows me, they know that I check my teeth in knives post every meal. #Soulmates. The panel happened, and whatever, he and the other panelists talked in depth about how Twitter is a great tool to interact with fans and how he likes to post a lot of selfies to his Instagram because it shows his fans he's just a regular ol' dude. When asked by the moderator what question he gets the most from fans on Twitter, Nev responded that it's "why doesn't he shave his chest hair." It takes a real man to admit something like that in a crowd full of strangers. Photos: Max, Nev and More Amazing TV Bromances So after the panel ended, this was my chance. Girls were swarming towards him and asking him to take pictures with them, so I knew I had to have a different pick-up line. One that would stand out. I walked over to him and said "Hey Nev! Can we take a selfie?" Get it? Because he just talked at length about how he loves selfies? So he grabbed my iPhone, crouched down next to me (I'm 5 feet short but he's not exactly a giant either), and this beauty was born: Then my friend did the same (but I win because my pic was better and also because I came up with the selfie thing first) and then we both left. Defeated that he didn't ask either of us for our hand in marriage, yes, but feeling fantastic because I knew this pic was Instagram/Facebook gold. It got about 26 likes on each, if you're curious, which is really great for me. Watch: Official Trailer for Catfish Season 2 I haven't spoken to Nev since (even though I tweeted the pic at him that night and asked for a retweet because the following day happened to be my birthday) but I am certainly excited for this summer, where I'll just be able to watch his cuteness for 60 minutes each Monday in season 2. I just hope he doesn't bring his girlfriend on the show. Oh right, he has a girlfriend who he also talked about at length during the panel. But that is completely irrelevant. #Stillsoulmates Catfish season 2 premieres next Monday, June 24 at 10pm on MTV! What'd you think of my first-hand meeting Nev story? Are you a little bit obsessed with him too? Have you ever met a celeb? Tweet us @OKMagazine! Photo credit: Instagram

Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures and Ocean Blue Entertainment have pre-emptively purchased the spec 12/24, which was written by Matt Lieberman based on an original idea from Safe House scribe David Guggenheim. Guggenheim will produce with Madhouse Entertainment. Columbus, Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe will produce for 1492. The plot, in the spirit of Super 8 and Chronicle, sees two brothers who set out to prove Santa Claus is real using their home video camera. They get more than they bargained for when they end up joining Santa’s epic Christmas Eve ride. After inadvertently causing Santa’s sleigh to crash, the brothers need to work together to save Christmas. Lieberman most recently wrote Short Circuit for Dimension Films. He also wrote Disney’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride which just attached Peter Candeland to direct, as well as Evil Genius for the studio. Columbus, 1492 and Lieberman are repped by WME, and Lieberman additionally by Madhouse. Guggenheim is repped by Paradigm and Madhouse.
