Shane is Freddie Benson's "nerd" friend in the Season 2 episode, iSaw Him First. At first, Carly and Sam believe he's a nerd because he is a member of the AV club with Freddie, but when they find out that he's attractive, they compete for his affection. Then things go haywire, resulting in Carly and Sam getting into an argument, and eventually Shane falls down the elevator and develops a fear of talking to girls with the name "Carly" or "Sam."
Shane is played by James Maslow, who is also known for being "James Diamond" in Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush.
Kissing Contest: Who does Shane like: Carly or Sam?
Since Carly and Sam both saw him first at exactly the same time, they decide that whoever kisses him first gets to date him. They eventually start fighting, and Shane begins to like neither.
