Johannesburg - It's been confirmed that Trevor Noah has an active profile on a dating website used exclusively for high-profile personalities and celebrities. However, representatives of The Daily Show host insist that the profile was created by Trevor and other members of his team for "research purposes."
The NY Daily News first reported on the story, saying that members on the exclusive dating site, Raya, spotted Trevor's profile on the app, with an icon showing that he is single. It immediately sparked speculation that that the funny man had broken up with his girlfriend, Jordyn Taylor.

US media immediately speculated that Trevor was single and clearly ready to mingle. But reps for Trev soon confirmed that this was not the case. The Daily Mail is reporting that his agent Jill Fritzo explained Trevor is on the app as part of research. "Trevor and some of the correspondents signed up for dating apps as part of production research for a comedy bit they are doing for The Daily Show."
Other well known celebrities who are known to use the app include Kelly Osborne, Moby and various Victoria Secret models. Raya charges $7.99 a month or $29.99 for six months. However, users have to fill in an application form via their Instagram page and only then are they accepted or declined.
Trevor and Jordyn spent part of the December holidays together at an exclusive resort in Mozambique, before heading back to New York where they celebrated New Years eve together.
