Dream team? After a solid six-year-stint as Nev Schulman‘s trusty Catfish co-host, Max Joseph is moving on from the hit reality series…and now, Kailyn Lowry revealed she’d be willing to take his place! The Teen Mom 2 star responded to Nev’s announcement via Twitter on Aug. 9, and hinted that she’s interested in the gig.

“I’m willing to take his place,” she wrote, alongside a laughing and hug emoji. Fans couldn’t tell if she was joking or was serious about her offer, however many quickly chimed in on the matter. “No. Don’t ruin Catfish. I like that show too much,” one wrote. “This would be a terrible pair up,” another added. However, some were loving the idea. “I’ve never seen so many Petty Betty’s in one comment thread,” one joked. “I’m down for this.”

On Aug. 8, Nev took to Instagram to bid his longtime friend and colleague adieu and TBH, it got real emotional, real fast. “Well my grey-haired friend, MJ Snores, Mr. won’t touch a hotel blanket to his bare skin, it looks like you’ve ridden your last Holiday Inn Express elliptical for awhile. I’m gonna miss you,” Nev began. 

“Working with Max on Catfish has been a blast. What started as a casual friendship quickly turned into a brotherhood. Over the last six years I’ve learned as much about the Internet and society as I have about myself, Max being there and helping me through every step of the way. In that sense, Max isn’t just a co-host, he’s a partner, therapist and brother.” the 33-year-old continued.

Well my grey-haired friend, MJ Snores, The Sass-Master, Mr. won’t touch a hotel blanket to his bare skin, it looks like you’ve ridden your last Holiday Inn Express elliptical for awhile. I’m gonna miss you. Working with Max on #Catfish has been a blast. What started as a casual friendship quickly turned into a brotherhood. Over the last six years I've learned as much about the internet and society as I have about myself, Max being there and helping me through every step of the way. In that sense, Max isn't just a co-host, he's a partner, therapist and brother. His ability to listen, empathize and advise is astounding and has made me a better man. Nobody cuts through the noise and dishes the hard truth better than he does. I'm going to miss him a lot. He's my best friend. Period. And of course one of the best colleagues anyone could hope for. As sad as I am that Max is leaving the show, it brings me great joy to know that he is following his heart. While selfishly I'd love to keep him all to myself, the world needs more passionate, creative people and we’ll all benefit from his work to come.

I know your front-facing camera works. Love you brother.

He’s my best friend. Period. And of course one of the best colleagues anyone could hope for,” the reality TV host added.

Nev concluded his touching post by acknowledging that Max will be continuing to chase his dreams and honor his passions: “As sad as I am that Max is leaving the show, it brings me great joy to know that he is following his heart. While selfishly I’d love to keep him all to myself, the world needs more passionate, creative people and we’ll all benefit from his work to come.”

In addition to his once-recurring role on Catfish, Max is an incredibly talented filmmaker. So much so, that Hollywood heavy-hitters Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski starred in his 2015 movie, We Are Your Friends. We have no doubt that we’ll continue to see his name pop up across movie screens and TV screens across the globe. That said, like Nev, we’ll miss Max’s ability to get to the bottom of even the most ridiculous Catfish stories. However, maybe Kailyn will give the show a new flare! 

Be sure to tune into Max’s final episode of Catfish on Wednesday, Aug. 22, on MTV at 9 p.m. ET.
