Known for traveling the country to help young adults meet their online significant other, Nev Schulman, host and executive producer of MTV’s ‘Catfish’ series, made a stop in Bourbonnais earlier this month.

Kari Clark, 22 year-old Gilman resident happened to also be visiting the area with her brother, Kyle Clark, and his fiancée, Bailey Boudreau, when she ran into Schulman at TJ Donlins, the bar across from Dairy Queen on Main Street.

Recognizing Schulman from Catfish, Clark approached him.

Schulman explained to Clark that he was working in Bourbonnais and that he was not drinking since he was working the next morning, Clark said.

“It was somewhat surprising to find him working somewhere so close to home. I knew he was making plans to go to [Eastern Illinois University] later on that week,” she said.

Clark is an EIU alumna and receives email updates regarding upcoming school announcements and events.
