Although there are any number of paedophile hunting YouTube channels out there now (not like that’s a bad thing – the more the better), the man that started it all was Chris Hansen on To Catch A Predator back in 2004.

His three year run on the show was absolutely legendary, as despite the absolutely disgusting subject matter he managed to make it absolutely hilarious by being your typical American TV presenter. How could you not burst out laughing when the paedophile walked into the kitchen and was confronted with a line like ‘I’m Chris Hansen, what were you planning on doing here tonight Dwayne? Why don’t you take a seat?’
Unfortunately the show stopped – not really sure why as it was supremely entertaining and doing a great job of catching child molesters – but Hansen has finally managed to crowdfund $90,000 to shoot a new series entitled ‘Hansen Vs Predator’:
Yeah, I’m not quite sure if the old magic was there but it still looked like it’s going to be a show that millions of students stay up late getting baked and watching. It’s just that kind of show.
Not sure who the creepiest guy he caught was but I would say it’s a close call between the guy in the Jurassic Park t-shirt and the guy who looks like an extra from an Insane Clown Posse video. Yeah, I know there are a few options for who that guy could be but I meant the guy with the absolutely atrocious hairstyle. You know the one.
