Nev Schulman says he’s to blame for Ben Affleck getting rejected on a dating app by a woman who didn’t believe he was the real deal … but he has some advice for Ben.
We got the “Catfish” host at LAX and asked about Ben’s apparent troubles on the dating platform, Raya, where the newly single actor sent a video message to a smoking hot woman he says “unmatched” him, thinking his profile had to be fake.
Nev says dating apps are inherently difficult for any celeb in the wake of “Catfish,” and he tells us why Ben’s got it even tougher than most famous folks when it comes to finding a date.
As you know … Ben and Ana de Armas called it quits earlier this year and he’s recently been hanging with his ex, Jennifer Lopez, though we’re told they’re strictly friends.
Nev tells us he’s not surprised Ben might be dipping a toe in the online dating pool — that’s how most folks are finding dates during the pandemic — and says the real issue for celebs involves keeping their private life under wraps.
Speaking of which, Nev thinks the woman who posted Ben’s video message should be kicked off the app for spilling the Raya tea.
While Nev admits he “may have inadvertently c*** blocked Ben Affleck,” he’s got some sage advice if and when Ben runs into more dating app roadblocks.
In a nutshell … play it cool, Ben.
