It was the proposal that left “Catfish” fans across the country teary-eyed, but now we’re finding out that it might not have been possible without the help of the show’s creators, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. In a generous act that proves just how much the online sleuths genuinely care for the people they meet while filming, the guys actually offered to pay for Lauren’s ring, Nev told Us Weekly.
“Max and I bought Derek the engagement ring so that he could propose because he needed help paying for it,” Nev shared with the magazine. “We went with him that morning and it was really sweet.” Nev also added that he’s particularly proud of the couple for staying together through the tough times. “I’m really impressed by them,” he said. “The last year of their lives…has been very complicated.” As for the wedding, Nev has no plans to officiate, but hopes it can be a “Catfish” reunion of sorts. “I don’t see why we shouldn’t make an episode or a show about it,” he said. LET’S DO THIS, SEASON 3.
